Wow! 42 Etsy Sales Last Week

I just had the best week ever at Etsy. Combined, I sold 42 items in my two shops within the last 8 days! I was so excited. :)

I have been listing and listing and posting some in the forums and I guess it paid off. I seemed to have gotten more views and hearts last week too. Happy, Happy!

Anyway, back to business. I went garage sale hunting this morning at 6:30 am and found a lot of treasures. I bought up a lot of old jewelry and some vintage glass. When I returned home I checked out my loot. I can't see a thing, the tiny writing, designer names or anything without my reading glasses so I had no idea what I had until I got home. I paid $1.00 for a necklace that was pretty long and heavy and I checked and it is 14k gold! I was very shocked and happy. I also had paid $1.00 for another necklace and it turned out to be sterling silver with a sterling locket.

Very profitable day for me today. I'm already planning my garage sale route for tomorrow. Do any of you go to garage sales? Have any tips? I would love to hear them.

Have a great weekend everyone!
