As some of you know, my last job ended just over 2 years ago and I moved to my parents home because I could not find another job quickly enough and unemployment would not cover my bills. Sadly I still have not found a job here even though I have had some great interviews. Part of this may be my age (late 50s) and partly because this is such a small town (pop. 5500) that's too far away from a large city (Ft Worth is over 2 hours away).
At any rate, as I need to help my folks more and be here when they need me, I have decided to get really serious about my Ebay and Etsy selling while still continuing to look for local work, perhaps part time. I'm not going to consider Ebay a hobby anymore.
Recently I joined a Facebook group of people who sell on Ebay and am reading the blogs & watching videos of people who also do this for a living. I am trying to learn what kinds and brands of items sell well for good money, especially clothes, shoes, purses and maybe toys, those items I know very little about.
I found this at Goodwill a couple weeks ago for 99¢.
It was the only one there was (darn) and in perfect condition, This Waterford Crystal whiskey glass sold for $40.
I'm off to a great start so far this month with sales from Ebay and Etsy. But sadly there was no time for stitching anything this past week. I hope to have something with stitches to show next week!
