I went MIA (missing in action) for awhile and I’m sorry about that. 2020 has been a tough year for me, as I am sure it has been for so many others. COVID hit and is still happening, My health has been anything but stellar, so lots of things I loved to do got pushed to the backburner.
Times like those can make you reflect and put things into perspective. I still love to craft and vintage/thrift hunt, so a few months back I decided I wanted to try and sell my wares on a different platform. My OWN platform. Heck I already run a blog, so, I thought, why not? Other bloggers can do it, so can I…much easier said than done!!
So after many trial and tribulations I FINALLY launched A Wandaful Thing Gift Shop!!! Yay me!! insert woot woots and yahoos! Hey don’t worry, the BLOG is still there and I’ll still be sharing content with regard to make, bake and create over there.
I’ve sold on Etsy, on Kijiji and through FB Marketplace and I even have my own FB group for selling items. Most of that selling was for vintage, thrifted or antique pieces. My new shop will be focused on selling handmade and homespun items, with a few pieces of my vintage jewelry and accessories thrown in. I’d love to have you visit and leave me some comments. If you would like to be a consignment seller of your own handmade or homespun items, be sure to contact me.
I have to say HUGE THANK YOU’s to two of my dearest friends, who, without their help and encouragement this would not have happened.
Amelia P – she is a fellow blogger over at You Can Always Start Now – be sure to check out her blog – great content and totally different than mine. Not sure how she found the time but she helped me with all that fun administrator/editing stuff that online selling shops entail. She encouraged me through it, even though there were days I wanted to throw this computer out the window. She taught me that not everything has to be perfect all the time and she did this from 5000km away and a different time zone. XXOO
MC – although she also lives too far away from me (in my opinion), we do make it a point to spend time together, at least one weekend every other month. These get togethers usually involve shopping, eating, spending time in the craft room and lots of laughter, of course. The last few visits were spent procuring supplies, along with hours and hours spent in the craft room. MC also took the majority of the photos for the products you will find on the page. Her skills in this area are far better than mine. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. XXOO
