WOYWW -191

My desk, as I woke up to it this Wednesday. Really! I discovered sell boards on Facebook this past week and have been busy selling items along with selling my last item on etsy! It's been a bit of time since I visited my own Etsy store, and LO and behold I did not have any items active but the one I sold.

I had run across some cassette holders at a thrift store and bought both for 10.00. I went to a Facebook crafting group and asked if anyone was interested prior to it going on ebay and was told to go to a sell board...HA, had no idea what they were talking about....a few questions later and I was a member of:

I posted the cassette racks, and minutes later both were sold for 40.00 each and the buyer emailed me the shipping label, all I had to do was take it to the post office and put the label on it.

I went to put a new card in a clear bag envelope and what a mess! I had more clear jackets than carter has pills. Years ago I had purchased 3 packages of clear card jackets (100 jackets in each bag). Each time I would go get out a clear envelope I had to mess with those jackets...so heck I took a photo, and asked it anyone wanted them on one of those sell boards and poof, within minutes sold!

So, interesting week...found a place to sell things I don't use or need. Of course, this meant I bought a big shot and the new zutter bow maker with my new found money..

If they don't work out, I suppose they can be sold to another paper crafter....

If you are wondering why I am telling you this...pop over to Julia's blog and find out why!

NOTHING goes to waste around crafters, lol!!! Good deal on selling old stuff to buy new stuff. I think if I sold everything, I could buy a house free and clear!!!

Happy Crafting!

Thanks for the comment on my post. Well done for finding those groups to sell your unwanted bits...I wonder if there is any groups like that in the UK?

Have a good week

It is great to get rif of unwanted items but it is a bounus if you get something from those items. Hey keep hunting you might find more you don't want.

I have never heard of that group, I must investigate.
