Adding New items to Bonanzle

I have had a hard time listing new items to my shoppes lately as I have been caring for my ill husband. He is much better now but still getting two IV infusions a day till our next Doctor visit and the Home Health nurse does come every Monday.

I hope to add some books, VHS Movies, Ceramic Teapots, Fall plates, etc. to my frstyfrolk's Boutique today!

It was beautiful here yesterday and I did some outside work done to prepare for the cool weather to come after the rains this weekend. I made a concrete leaf birdbath and hope it turn out fine. It is my first time at trying this. I saw it in a magazine and had to use my elephant ear plant before the frost gets it anyway. It is curing now for the next few days.

I also made some terrarium's recently which came out quite nice. I hope to make more to sell on my Etsy ByLightofMoon account.

I also have alot of Vintage ITems of all kinds to list on my frstyfrolk Vintage Etsy Boutique

My husband is even selling New York Yankees New Stadium and License plates on ebay among other license plates.

My Etsy Handmade Shop

This is a sample of my Etsy Handmade Shop,"ByLightOfMoon" I share with my Mother who makes Rosemary's Bags. She uses new materials and is a fabulous crafter. She is quilting and sewing for now but in the past she has china painted, tole painted,and has been a crafter as long as I can remember. She used to even craft from oil-cloth and felt our front door at Christmas Time. How I wish I could find some of those photos!

On the other hand, I am just now learning to craft. I like to use found objects using mixed media for what I make. I reuse and recycle items like the pumpkins made from a dyed chenille bedspread, nylon stockings,silf flowers and tree limbs.

I am always purchasing new products I think I might use and have two rooms full of crafting supplies so I also offer them. The Hat Magnets are a friendship gift for you to share with someone, just a magnet but the thought is tremendous.

My husband is recovering from back surgery and I am home taking care of him so I should be entering many new items in all my shops in the coming weeks. Please contact me if youhave any questions and I love comments.

Smiles, Cyndi

My Etsy Vintage Shop

Here is a sampling on my Vintage Etsy Shop! I collect Vintage at estate sales, auctions, antique shops, etc. I just like to roam, never knowing what I will find.

I love Vintage Linens, Crafts, Home Decor, Sewing, Cross-Stitch Books, Children's Books, Magazines, Ceramics, and Clothing if Excellent quality. If not Excellent , then I use it for my mixed media art for a fabulous fabric, buttons, whatever I can salvage.

I love the thought of reusing an item for another purpose, or just thrifting. I find it silly to pay exorbant retail prices for something that I can probably find here and there as I roam.

Most of my Clothing is found as Pre-owned and I save boo-q's ( is that a word?) of money that way. Also my home is filled to the brim where I have closed my retail stores for the time being.

I hope I can shop when you can't and you can find something you love. Just message to me and we can make a deal if you just let me know.

Smiles, Cyndi

I lost my brother yesterday

My brother "Randy" passed yesterday!
5-12-61 ~ 4-25-09
My brother was doing what he loved, Sports! and helping his friends! He was scuba diving in Arkansas and the coroner thought he had a heart attack. We will not know complete details until Arkansas releases his body to us from autopsy since it happened out of state.
I will be heading for Missouri to be with my family and I don;t know when I will return.

selling and social sites

Http:// _ Etsy Handmade ~ Etsy Vintage ~ MyShop4Pets Dragonfly Dreams
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dragonfly Dreams ( here) My everyday life Emma, Jordan ,and Bob My Altered Art

Changes happening!

I am going to start using this blog for my selling sites on ebay, Bonanzle and etsy.

I am trying my best to clean up my home and make it more clutterfree. I have stuff everywhere from my two closed mall stores and I need to sell it for something. I had hoped for better than garage sale prices.

Thing are just very slow everywhere. I am closing my two web-stores, They have been up 6 months and not one sale. So I believe we might be better of with the auction sites and the new Bonanzle. It is so friendly there, just word needs to get out about it. I will help them.

It is so easy to load up that site, much faster than ebay and going through Auctiva. I suppose that could be the store I promote to get listings credits from. JUst have to wait and see how it goes.

I am going to do more listings with the scrap crafts and recycle, all the vintage craft books I have and booklets to threads ideas, like embroidery, crochet, knit, cross-stitch, painting, woodcrafts, buttons, I collect, etc.

A new beginning, smiles, cyndi
