I set up a Vintage Shop on Etsy in June of 2015. This website and blog is a companion to my shop.
My goal is to document the process of setting up a store on Etsy, with the hopes of sharing tips and what I have learned in the process.
Hopefully, there are other new shop owners with similar challenges and we can learn from each other — whether it’s about the challenges of shipping your objects (what service to use, UPS, Post Office, Regional Rate versus regular Priority Mail, etc.) — or researching the story behind your item listing, or photography tips.
Sometimes, the story behind a particular vintage item is so interesting, and learning about these objects, and researching the story behind it is just as fun to me as selling it on Etsy.
And so, this site is also a place to contain this background information, through blog posts, and also for customers to read more about the objects they are interested in for purchase.

Facebook, Instragram, Pinterest accounts to follow — as I learn about and set up these social media options :0).
I love comments — please do leave one when you can — so that I at least know that someone else is reading this blog, aside from my sisters!
