Great sellers of handmade and vintage items

I found this v-neck shirt to that I just love. I want to promote the designs of

The designs are unique, stylish and I imagine make the buyer just feel good about themselves when they put the shirts on {or when they decorate their homes with what they bought from moresassvintage. Keep up the good work. If you need a good t-v-neck shirt or other creative items look up moresassvintage at

I want to go ahead a feature another seller today who creates stationary.

I can imagine writing on this paper. I could sent that little note that I've been meaning to for so long, but lacked the creative spark to do so. I think this would be just the stationary to do so on. If you are shopping for good, quality stationary look up on littletstudio.
Those are just two of the sellers I found at this morning. There are many others who are just fantastic. Make sure part of your day is spent at

Old, old Wendsday

So, I sit and wonder what life could be like if I were at home, working ETSY full time with my family. {this is the husband of Sharayah, who owns The Little Quirky Shoppe by the way.}

I sit while I eat an organic burrito by Amy's and lament not being home with the girls and the cat {My wife and our two little daughters. and our cat is named Officer Dan by the way.}

Sharayah is posting some pretty cool stuff, if anyone reads this check out the store, .

She went to an antique store yesterday for some materials/vintage stuff and we posted a lot last night. Still trying to figure out when the best time to post new listings though. I might have an idea, still thinking it through. Pretty much it's the mindset of morning for those cube dwellers like myself who spend the first part of the morning either wishing they were home working on their art or wanting to buy {I suspect it's a bit of both.} Then the lunch crowd doing the same and again in the late afternoon when the cube dwells spend their last 30 minutes {for some that last 30 minutes seems to take about an hour and a half.} shopping on Etsy or wishing their commute from work was across the living room and down the hall to the right. :)
Then maybe post again around 6-8 PM for our wonderful friends in Australia and Asia.
Any thoughts to this? Am I just goofy and living in a dream land?

We are going to PA in May. I honestly can't wait. We love it there. We aren't too keen on living in Florida forever. Don't get me wrong, it's nice, but not our gig.

I'm also considering making a job change. Maybe working in a restaurant like Outback or Carabbas 5 nights a week. (Mon, Tue, Thurs, Fri and Sat.) 4PM-?? I could probably make more in tips and I'd have all day with my family and of course, making a really good effort making ETSY a main source of income. Thougths on this?

Alright, I think the burrito is cooled off now so it shouldn't burn the daylights out of my mouth {I hate that} and I'll get to marketing the shoppe a bit more. Maybe I'll go for a walk too for a few minutes.

New Seller - Great Stuff

I wanted to take a minute to get on here and make mention of a new seller on Etsy whom I think is absolutely wonderful. The designs are splendid and unique. For those who happen upon this blog, check out

I also want to highlight another seller who travels in her RV around the country and makes jewlery, is inspired by their nomadic lifestyle. Absolutely adorable and inspiring story.

Have a wonderful, quirky day!

Our First week of Business

We are very positive about our first week of business! We are getting a lot of views on our wonderful little handmade art pieces and we are beginning to build some relationships with the fantastic sellers at Etsy.

Our next steps are to join a team and just today, we signed the Handmade Pledge. (I actually told my husband today that when he buys me presents, to please buy from the fantastic people selling on's time to support small business like never before and support those committed to HANDMADE!) He agreed.

We are making and adding more and more to our store daily so stop by and check us out!

My husband is trying to learn how to sew so he can make pillows and lamp shades. (He is very inspired by Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, etc...)

We hope all of you are having a wonderful day!
