Amatino, your bathroom is absolutely gorgeous! I love everything you did!
31 listings for me last week. I almost finished the box of easy to list items. This week is the big move though, so I will be slammed with other things.
23 listings for me last week. While packing I ran across a box of very easy to list stuff, so I might have decent numbers this week too.
Julie so truly sorry to hear about your dad. It sounds like you were exactly where you were needed and what a gift you gave to your mom and all those cats. Sending hugs from Oregon.
I had 10 listings this week. I’m trying to list at least a little, even though there is so much to do.
1 single solitary listing for me last week. It’s all about packing and purging. Packing, packing some more, and did I mention packing?
18 listings for the week.
Amatino, can you please change my weekly goal to 25 listings? It is much more realistic for the year, considering this summer will be all about the BIG move, and then into the busy Fall and Christmas season.
The good news is that we found a wonderful house, complete with large shop where I can store my inventory. It’s going to take months to get it set up properly and organized and so forth. I’ve been purging like crazy and have donated three minivan loads so far, but there’s still going to be a ton to move.
Hope everyone has a great week ahead!
21 listings for the week. Which is a miracle, considering.
7 listings for the week.
Whew Sharyn! Way to throw down the gauntlet! Makes me wish I COULD take on your challenge…but there’s always next year, right?
You have no idea how much I needed to read what you wrote today about the monthly challenges. I too find them inspiring, even though I haven’t accomplished most of the ones so far. I think it’s a brilliant idea to break them into manageable bites. For example, I may not have listed 25 pieces of vintage jewelry, as intended, but what I did accomplish was to pull them from storage, where they had been languishing for TOO long, and get them sorted. I was able to price about 40 pieces and put them into my glass case at the antique mall, and that’s a win for me. I’m going to view it differently from here on out.
On a personal note, I just found out that I have to move, after 10 years in the same house. It’s a very daunting prospect, on many levels. After my initial shock, I am choosing to view it as an adventure, and a fresh start. When it starts feeling overwhelming….I try to break the whole process into manageable bites. How does a mouse eat an elephant? (or an object the size of an elephant?)
One bite at a time.
23 listings for me last week.
I actually haven’t completed my April challenge…I just took the first step. Hoping to get more done this week. Sharyn, your banner looks fantastic and so inviting. Well done!
Julie congrats on the amazing ornament sale..what a thrill. It’s what we all live for! It’s especially fun when other resellers miss these items. Last month at the bins we found several great vintage books AFTER a pair of vintage book dealer guys had already gone through that particular bin. Heh heh heh.
Thanks y’all for the good thoughts. Everyone is posting good listing numbers and I hope to do the same for this week.
I had the very best of intentions this past week, but a few things got in the way and I only managed 15 listings, and while I did sort the jewelry…none of it is listed yet. Thankfully we still have this week.
I got the 2nd booster shot, and like the other previous shots….I spent a couple of days sleeping off the resulting fever and lethargy. But a bigger problem came along as well….you may remember my mentioning an elder abuse situation in my family….it reared it’s ugly head again last week and I spent many hours, with my brothers, trying to resolve the situation. Ugh.
I have hopes that this week will be much better. Onwards and upwards.
I did it! I spent an hour last night sorting through a pile of vintage jewelry, determining which pieces to list online and which should go in my case at the vintage mall. Now I have my 25 pieces pulled and ready to list. Mission accomplished. Thanks for the nudge, Amatino!
15 listings for me last week. I was hoping for more, but I was still catching up on Brookhaven stuff, like the bookkeeping, which takes me at least 10 hours to complete.
Amatino, to be fair, it takes us 5 days to set up the show and do all the displays and I have a team of 7-8 helping me and putting in long hours. Setting up a booth as you are doing is a lot of work, but once you get it where you want it, it won’t be nearly as much work, and I hope you are having fun doing it.
On another note, my sales on Ebay were DISMAL last week. I had three days in a row without any sales, and in all the years of selling of Ebay that has never happened before. I don’t remember two days in a row without sales, let alone 3. It’s very discouraging and disconcerting. The only thing I can think to do is to tweak some of my listings and make sure I am consistently listing this week. I’m in the glumps about it, to be honest.
Please put me down for zero listings for the past two weeks but I had a good excuse.
My first Brookhaven Spring Show in 3 years….the last one was April 2019. It was warmly received by customers and a whole lot of fun. I am still recovering however, catching up on sleep and taking lots of tylenol for the aches of moving heavy furniture and the like.
I’ll get back to listing this week and hope to get some good numbers.
Congrats on selling the binnacle Amatino, and Sharyn….congrats on a HUGE listing number!
13 listings for me last week. I start show set up on Thursday so not much else is going to get done this week other than show related stuff. However, while prepping for the show, I was able to eliminate 8 death pile boxes, which makes me happy.
