Introducing...




I was a little leery of cluing you into my latest endeavor. For fear of failure mostly. I told those close to me (i.e. B, my mom, my sisters) that I would go public as soon as I had my first sale.


And, stop. the. world., I had my first two sales last night. Yippee!!!


You all know that I love to garage sale, thrift, and garbage pick. So, now I'm trying to profit from one of my most favorite hobbies. I've taken to collecting the odd assortment of container-thingies. Mostly vintage, all unique. Things you don't typically find on your weekly run to Target.


I don't know why I'm drawn to containers, specifically, but it could be because I love for everything to have its place. You might never know this by looking at the pictures a couple posts down, but, I promise. all that stuff has somewhere to go.


Anyway, so I now have an Etsy store called Saving Vases. If you're unfamiliar with Etsy, it is a wonderful online market full of vintage and handmade wares. I could spend hours on there perusing individual shops. You can visit my store by clicking on the graphic above or the highlighted link. I will also include a sample of my items on my sidebar.


Feel free to shop - let me know you found my shop through my blog and I'll discount your item ;)


PS. Pics of Baby B and new car to come... My camera is still on the fritz, so I'm having to borrow my mom's. Patience, dear friends.

Oh my gosh you are soo smart!! What a good idea, turning trash to treasure! I'm browsing the store and marking you as a favorite!
Thanks for the advice on Dave Ramsey, I'm going to look into his classes b/c I think K and I could really use one.

I'm loving those apothecary jars. I may be back to buy one as a decorative item for my new retail store! And ever come across an apothecary like jar with a spout you can put punch/lemonade/tea in? I've been on the lookout for something like that for parties and such.

Wooohooo Saving Vases! I will become a frequent shopper, does that mean you will give me blog traffic? Hee Hee:)
