Over a year ago, I got the idea to open a shop on Etsy.com to sell quilts and other handmade items. I made some quilts to sell, and stopped at Hancock's at Paducah to buy fabric for a sweet little jewelry holder that I wanted to make:
I bought enough fabric to make 60 of these items and started sewing. Many, many days later, I was finished, but never pulled the trigger on the Etsy shop. I sold a few of the pouches at a flea market last year, but the rest have been set aside for the day that I might get around to opening my shop.
Well, today was that day, and my shop is open! So far, only the jewelry holders are listed, but after Thanksgiving, I plan on doing my photography and listing my quilts.
You can visit my shop by clicking here. There are nine different colors to choose from.
I told my sister, Diane, about my new shop and she posted it on her Facebook timeline, and a few minutes later, I had my first sale! I'm very excited!
