I've had a hard time finding time to write a blog post recently.
Why, you ask?
I have been conscientiously working on getting things straightened out, organized and disposed of in my studio.
I have spent a lot of time the last two weeks listing things on eBay. I realized that one source of clutter in my studio was things I meant to list on eBay - so I decided there was no time like the present and last night I posted 20 items to close next Sunday evening. It takes a lot of time to take a decent photo, edit it, measure the garments, write the descriptions and fill out the form for the auction. Then after it sells there is the packaging and shipping to be done.
Last night and this morning I packed the items I sold last night, printed the labels and had them shipped. I have 4 more to ship and I will be able to start thinking about what I am going to list next week. I am starting the prices very low and so far everything has sold.
This may look like a jumbled mess to you, but it is really all carefully washed, ironed and stacked in piles of things in related categories.
I have bulging closets of like new collectible clothing: Blue Fish, Flax, Oh My Gauze, Eileen Fisher, Nothing Matches, etc and I am listing lots of it on eBay so I'll have a little more room in my closets. Would you believe I was running out of hangers. That was the breaking point!
I will be also listing other things that are not clothing in the next few auctions.
As I am writing this post I am thinking maybe I should list some of the sewing/quilting related items I have to sell at a fixed reasonable price on my blog and they will be available to anyone of you who might be interested. What do you think?
I think it is time to get back to work. See you again soon!
