  4. So my favorite has to be the Pigeon Forge Atomic Planter. I love the glaze color and the shape of it! My shop is Andromeda Vintage. Any tips or advice would be hugely helpful since I'm still an Etsy newbie. : ) Congrats on all your mile stones!

    1. You've got awesome vintage so far! I'd work on adding more items, as many as possible, promoting within Etsy itself for visibility, and staging photos in a unique way. When I started doing that I got many more favorites and interest.

  26. Wow. Your 13 pages of awesome on Etsy made it really hard to choose a favorite.

    The closest I can come currently (though the vintage cookbooks were especially tantalizing) are the salmon colored melmac mugs to go with the single one I picked up at a thrift store--it's in my camping/bug-out bag so I can have a hot beverage after the apocalypse or other disaster. A set of four would allow me to have guests for tea, or alternately, to not have to wash my cups for four days. Either way, totally sweet. I am eyeballing those for when I have any spare income.

    Also, thank you for your blog. I follow you on facebook. You've given me a lot of hope that I can be part of a better, less wasteful economy. And I looooooove your tips. You're not trying to hedge other people out of the business, you're encouraging them to join you. Wonderful generosity of spirit. Thank you, sincerely.

  27. What a coincidence-- I'm having a givaway too! Hard to pick only one favorite from your shop. Guess I would say the McCalls needlework mags. Love looking at the old fashions and crafts (my sister has a bunch).
