Here are some items that have sold lately in my Etsy Shop that apparently tickled the new owner's fancy. I'm always intrigued because you never know when you list something if someone will actually want it enough to BUY it! Just because *I* was intrigued by something doesn't mean anybody else will give a hoot.
This little lady headvase was snatched up quickly with the new owner requesting me to please "wrap her up real good because she's so pretty!" I have a thing for lady headvases myself but decided I needed to part with this one before I became attached.
This sweet little vintage housedress below is winging its way to Australia and her new owner who has a love of yesteryear's clothing (one of my all time weaknesses.)
Then, there is Peter Pig. He is an old Fisher Price toy from the late 50's early 60's. I bought this pig even though I had no memories of it personally...I loved a Buzzy Bee and still have her! I hoped someone remembered their Peter Pig and would enjoy sitting him on a nursery shelf and reminiscing. His graphics are adorable. I didn't realize how well-loved he had been until I did some research. He's missing his curly-q tail, his hat, his pull string, and he once "oinked"! I was right. Someone saw him and wanted to give him a home. He is on his way from Texas to New Hampshire.
That's what makes Etsy such a fun place to shop and to sell. Now, will my Saucy Walker find a new home?
Or what about this vintage sequined and velvet vest? Will it tickle someone's fancy? Spark a memory? I don't know, but it will be fun to wait and see.
I'm especially thrilled if someone thinks something I've created it is worthy of attention. I know many of you artsy craftsy folks get the same little thrill when something you make sells. It is that Sally Field moment, "Someone likes me. You really like me!"
Hope you're enjoying this busy time of year and all the crafty fun vintagey goodness in your life. May there be lots of little tickles to your fancy as you recollect sweet moments of the past, make the very most of the present moment, and relish living out your future as God has planned! Happy Pink Saturday! I'm linking up at Beverly's today. I haven't in a while. She is featuring some great recipes and other ladies who love pink, so check her out. I always enjoy participating.
