I'm selling stuff on eBay and Etsy

I'm having so much fun selling (not just psychic readings) but "found things" and refurbished jewelry on eBay and fully handcrafted items (I'll even have 3D art, such as shadow boxes, eventually) on etsy.com.

I seriously think, with all that I've been up to and the increase of both writing and psychic work I've had come available lately, I feel the happiest I've felt in a very long time, just "free-flowing" with life . . .

The other day while volunteering with the native plant rescue effort I worked next to another volunteer who helped put baby red alder trees in pots. She also volunteers for PAWS as a veterinary technician and she said she's 100% certain global warming is happening because domestic cats are now going into heat twice as much as they did ten years ago (at least, veterinarians supposedly think that's the cause for so much feline breeding).

The left-image (crazy-as-all-get-out photos) is just ONE item I'm selling on eBay. I've got a lot more items to post. (Click on that woman in labor to see more clay-statue snapshots.) Or click on the photo to the right to see my hand-beaded necklace. This is so weird (me making a crucifix necklace with the "fish" on it . . . but I really liked the pewter pendant (in spite of all the affiliated dogma) so I crafted it into something to wear since it was part of a huge box of vintage jewelry I bought and thoroughly cleaned as well as sorted.

May you, dear reader, find fun in whatever you do for a living each day.

Fun and lucrative sounds like the way to go!

It is fun working out deals on ebay.

Craigslist is very good as well but I imagine your market needs to be bigger for these sots of items...

Ebay has experienced a big decline in volumes lately.

Seems they pissed off their small shop owners who got them there in the first place. This especially holds true to the doll collectors who started the whole craze in the first place.

I'm well by the way, thank you for your comments.

BecomingKate ~ I dunno how lucrative any selling is given this current economy but it certainly is fun!

Fijufic ~ Yes it is fun and, as you said, eBay is experiencing a decline . . . I feel sorry for sellers who get ZERO bids (it's happening a lot -- I notice as I keep trying to figure out what is currently working. So glad you are doing well. {Throwing chicken soup at ya.}

Isn't that little statue Sheila-na-Gig? I seem to remember her from our fertility rituals.

Glad you are having fun and the creativity is flowing!

SunTiger said...

Tish ~ Interesting correlation. Her vagina isn't THAT big or stretched out (LOL). She certainly could be a less-common-known rendition though. Fascinating input (thank you)!

I changed the header to sell her: "RARE Pagan Sheila-na-Gig Statue Goddess Births Infant" . . . you were SUPPOSED to make that analysis on my behalf. SEE??? :D Thanks!
