My New Online Shop!


I don't think I've ever posted 2 posts in one day, but wanted to put this one out there too about my new little online shop. Don't miss the one below this too!

Sorry everyone! I think I've fixed both links, so you should be able to get in with either one now. Darn html!

My new venture has begun! After getting some positive feedback from many of you on how to begin selling & some more information on possibly getting an antique booth from several sources, I decided to open up a little shop & link it from my blog. This will be a little shop offering things I pick up at yardsales & thrifting that I can't use, so will pass on to you. I'll keep the costs low & the shipping charges as low as possible, so that it will benefit all of us. I've started with 3 pages (10 items so far) & will add to it as I get more things. All you have to do if you're interested in something is email me (my email is listed on my blog & on the shop page). It will be a first come, first served basis on claiming things. I'll be happy to take additional pics or answer any questions on something you might be interested in. These things are all used, so please keep that in mind. There will be some wear & tear on items & I will try to keep the descriptions accurate. This is a fun thing that I really enjoy doing, so I really hope that it takes off & works! Now keep in mind, this is not a fancy site, like I've seen on so many blogs. This is a simple little website. I'll also put a link directly on my blog.

I'll see how this goes & hopefully will be able to expand & add more items along the way. There are plenty of yardsales & thrifting that I can do around my area, so I hope to have some interesting things to share. Please check it often & I will try to add things weekly.

Good idea Rhoda! But, I can't get the link to work for me.

We're on our way to the surgeon for some pre-op things this morning, (J is scheduled for rotator cuff sugery on Monday). I'll check back when we return home, this afternoon.

Good luck with your venture!

Wow...what a great venture this will be Rho. Good for you!! With your eye for style and nose for a bargain what could be better.

Ohh like Pat said the link didn't work for me either. It looks like there is an extra "http://" in the url.

Again Congrats!!
Jill

Carol said...

I'm glad you took the plunge, Rhoda! I can't get the link to open, though:( I'll check back later today and maybe it will be fixed.

Cheryl Wray said...

It looks great, Rhoda! I see a few things I want already. Will have to talk to the bank (hubby) first. I can't wait to keep an eye on what's for sale in your shop.

Just lovely Rhoda ! Right now you have to navigate by the link at the top right ...
I am excited for you...

Southern Heart said...

Try the link on her sidebar...I think that one is working.

Rhoda, good for you! I love your shop, and I'm sure you'll have great success!! It's funny you did this today; M just mentioned to me yesterday (when we were cleaning out a closet) that I should find a way to resell some of the "stash". I may have to try to figure out how to do that myself.

I hope that you enjoy your new venture!

Love, Andrea

Barbara said...

Link not working for me either.

Hi Rhoda

I got there just fine by clicking on the sidebar. I hate others have had trouble getting there though. It looks wonderful and I'm sure you'll do great. It's a good way for you to have fun doing what you love and maybe make a few dollars to go shopping for more!

Rhoda said...

Thank you all so much for the encouragement! I'm so excited. I have my first customer already today. I really am excited by this & hope it might be an outlet for my creativity & a way to make a little extra money. I love doing this & this will make it all the more fun. I have to pass up so many neat things that I haven't had room for & now I can get them & pass them on to all of you! How great will that be?

I really appreciate all the supportive comments & look forward to all the fun ahead.

xoxo,
Rhoda

Rhonda,
Love the house tour and can't wait to have a few minutes to scour them more closely, especially since you have made them enlargeable, love that.
Congrats! on your shop. I'm sick I missed the hobnail cream and sugar.
Also, I'm not sure of the blog etiquette on posting links, but I put your adorable blog in my favorites link but I can't get it to work. Any tips?
Much luck with your new shop.
Sue
