Hello, dear readers. I know I have been AWOL, but it is for good reason. As most of you that appreciate vintage know, Winter is not a season in which there are rummage sales, estate sales, etc., (maybe for western and southern states) hence the reason for no monthly purchase posts recently.
I've always thought it would be neat to have a space at a flea market, a booth at an antique shop, anything to do with sharing and selling vintage. Well, this past fall, I looked through my stash of vintage patterns, linens, books and jewelry, amongst my other treasures to see if I even had enough to have a shop of sorts. I do! But what about rotating inventory, keeping it fresh? Yes, I think so. But, should I attempt this adventure? Can I handle it? What if I am not doing it right? How do I know if I am legally cooperating?! IRS, Debt, Fines, oh my!
Yikes. I got the information I needed to do things correctly, and did a lot of research. Now, I am ready, and have opened a shop on Etsy! If you have seen one of my purchases that you liked, maybe it will be available.
The name of my shop is Ruby & Mathilda. You can visit here to read about the name I chose and its significance. I hope you take the time to visit my shop and come along with me on this new journey!
