Grandmother's Attic Reaches 5000 Sales!!

Today was a milestone! My etsy shop reached 5000 sales today! A couple of weeks ago, my husband said he would take me to The Melting Pot if I reached 5000 sales by my 3rd Etsy anniversary which will be March 8th! The race was on! It started getting closer and closer and as of this morning I was 15 sales away! By tonight, the goal was met!

A great big, huge thank you to my wonderful customers and even to a fellow dealer/friend/facebooker who bought a book for her granddaughter today when she read how close I was!

It's not always about the sales though...through Etsy I've made new friends and shared stories, laughter and pictures with people all around the world! I love the community of Etsy and it's truly been a blessing these last three years!

A huge thank you to my wonderful husband for his support, lugging abilities and not freaking out too much over the back stock in the basement! I also thank you for cutting some of the very first ephemera that debuted almost three years ago! I think I thank you for always telling me to "buy more stuff"!

Another big thank you to my mom who offers free bookkeeping services and saves me hours of work! She also likes to cut paper and accompany me on shopping trips!

Looks like we'll be making reservations for The Melting Pot soon!

Here's to another 5000 sales, new friends and happy customers!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Another Valentine's Day is upon us! Tim has been sick for over a week now but finally on the upswing. He was a trooper and our celebration included a little perusing at The Crazy Daisy Antique Mall, a stop in at Half Price Books and a lovely relaxing dinner at The Melting Pot! And then the annual photo shoot, we tried to include Junior and Garden Kitty this year, and present opening! Love my vintage children's Valentine book! Pristine and uncut! Perfume and my favorite flowers...what more could a girl ask for? Tim received his annual Bad Kitty calendar and hopefully one or both of our kitties will make the cut for next year's calender! (I finally entered them even if it was down to the wire!) He also got a Rosie the Robot ornament, a DVD, a Toy Story 3 figure set and long underwear (now, isn't that romantic?)!!! Best husband ever!!! Love you!
