500 Sales Part 3

My third etsy store is called ButtonsBanglesandWeeds. It is mostly for my vintage button jewelry and bangle bracelets, but I also sell my destash supplies there as well. Beads and buttons. I am a flea market addict, in addition to my other addictions like knitting, weaving, jewelry making, crafting, so every Sunday, religiously, I find more crap I don't need. Well, when I see it I think I need it, but then I get home and realize I really didn't. So, for all you beaders, jewelry makes and vintage button addicts, check out my etsy store, and you may find something you really need. My prices are ridiculously low, but it is all because I need to sell things. Celebrate #500 with me, buy something and make it 501.

500 Sales on Etsy (Part 2)

To the left are my little storage for my craft supplies. I have been buying crafty things for years thinking, someday, the thoughts in my head will magically transfer to my fingers and I will make beautiful things. Well, I found the gap between brain and actual crafting was a long, long way. So, my second decision to destash craft supplies was made when I realized I had so much of so many supplies, paint, shells, paper and ephemera, embossing powders and liquid, wire and tools, rubber stamps of all kinds, botanical bits from Loose Ends and dried florals. Napkins used for decoupaging my tile coasters. Many, many supplies, and all being listed on etsy one at a time. This one is my sallycrafts store. I also have a few Christmas items, but not many.

500 Sales on Etsy

I am so excited, my 500th sale from my 3 Etsy stores happened

today. It was actually a rubber stamp from my Sallycrafts store

called Woman in Repose. But most of my sales are from my Etsy

store ThreadsintheBed, my yarn destash. My novelty yarns, effect

yarns, carry along yarns, etc. See the 6 original tubs to the right,

they include regular yarns, ribbon yarns, novelty yarns, ladder style yarns, and soft and squishy yarns. I have recently added 2 new bins, one for little flag and nub yarns, and the 8th for boucle yarns.
