Hot Damn, The Thrift Core Etsy Site is Finally Launched! Beautiful!


Well it's ABOUT DAMN TIME! The Thrift Core Etsy shop is finally back online after nearly three years of being neglected. I listed three items online back in 2010, then never bothered with Etsy again since antique mall and blog sales were steady. I've been dying to launch another online shop and recently finished organizing the last box of vintage stock (yay!) so I busted ass the past couple of days to get this beast running.

I have hundreds of items I can add to the shop, lots of them are goodies you haven't seen! I'm excited to get work and I'll likely be adding at LEAST 10 to 20 items per day this month.

If you're Christmas shopping I have dozens of cute gifts for low prices. If you're looking for something in particular that you don't see in the shop drop me a line, because I might have it! Many items in the haul posts are available as well.

Discount Code: I'm offering a 10% discount to celebrate the launch. Type in "Dinobots" upon checkout to receive your discount for one week!

I'd love your feedback! Any tips for a beginner on Etsy? Let me know!

  6. Awesome! Going to check it out now! I have been putting off starting an etsy shop for forever. Need to do it one of these days! I use ebay which I'm not all that fond of, but have had an account for many years so everything's all set up already. lol :)

    1. I have a lot of pop culture and collectible items better suited for eBay and need to start that learning process next. Some wise resellers told me to focus on one online reselling venue if possible so I'll wait until everything I want on Etsy is listed first...

      Etsy is fun though, very easy to use and very fast! Listing the items has been my favorite part of the process so far.

    I've been randomly checking your etsy to see if you've added inventory. I spend a lot of my internet time on etsy, both working on my shop and just browsing the lovely vintage items. Glad to see you on there ^_^

  15. Congrats, Van! & yea, Amber is right, you're photos always look great. :)

    I once had those Coke glasses. I bought them from an antique mall & there was a bunch of dead spiders inside, lol. I don't quite know what happened to them though.

    1. The typography and bold color on them really make them irresistible, love those glasses. Love the spider story too, thrifters encounter LOTS of them, legs all curled up, pathetic looking dead spider-balls...all part of the process!

      Thanks for the kind words on the photos, I shall keep at it!
