Yesterday I was checking on Etsy new treasures to add in my account and suddenly I saw a gorgeous earrings that captured my attention. They are exquisite and elegant that can perfect fit some of my clothes.
I contacted Pamela Deen (the owner) looking for more information. She told me a beautiful story about why she loves vintage and how she started with her business after her retirement as a teacher:
“I love to quilt and I am swamped in them! I love to create with the different quilt patterns, designs on the fabric, the colors and the color combinations. I love to restore old quilts even more. I search for old flour sack material for reasonable prices and others look for me too. I use this material to fix the older quilts. It is such a wonderful feeling to bring new life to something others would throw away!
Then in 2010 I retired after teaching 30 years. I first wrote that novel I have been wanting to write, The Groaning Bridge, available at Amazon. I am currently writing the prequel, The Brede Giant.
Then six months ago, I found estate sales! So Etsy saved me!!! I sell some of the items I buy so I don’t become a hoarder! LOL
I don’t have to own everything, I just love to look at them and learn about them. I pass on the items for low prices so I can continue to shop and buy without having to go without buying food! LOL”

Customers have been easy to deal with and communication has been pleasant. I love my Etsy shop. I can easily maneuver around the site. I can edit my items with no hassle.
