Holy hell it's been two straight days of working on this post you're reading now on-and-off between the picture snapping, editing, listing, and now writing here! My current mission: get away ahead on work so I can actually have days off! I'm burning the candle at both ends trying, but I'm grateful to be out of my inertia slump (hinted at here and here). I even crafted, more will be up soon.
I'll update with progress on my epic goal list and helpful tips for others trying to will themselves to work harder this week. For now, behold my latest batch of curated bits. Despite the work put into the photos, not too happy with the compositions this week. Gotta work on that!:
This large Horizon Otagiri salad bowl is from the first "valuable" set I ever scored. The other bowls broke over time (oh, my heart, why all of our favorite things?) so I decided to sell this large bowl before it meets the same fate. I'd rather ship it out to someone who will preserve it than doom it. ----->>> On Etsy
I have SO...MANY...books and ephemera bits to photograph and scan! I started with this hilarious Playboy collection of comics from the late 60s and early 70s.
It contains different artists and styles in distinctive expressive retro style, gotta love it. A lot of the jokes are actually hilarious and I'm enjoying looking at the mod fashions/furniture in the backgrounds, too. I wish I had time to scan then all but absolutely don't for now, boo. ----->>> On Etsy
I finally got to photographing and listing this nifty "small" - it's a brilliant piece for terrariums, potted arrangements and dioramas.
It's livening up an obviously Yuko-nibbled succulent on my desk at the moment. ------->>> On Etsy
I've held off on photographing this gorgeous ice bucket for a while because it's so hard to photograph- it reflect my apartment (and me!) for one and agains get lost with the white background, will have to play with shooting things like this more. Reflections are a bitch. ------->>> On Etsy
The illustrations are gorgeous. Let me know if you're interested in it, I'll give you a good deal.
The real time-sucker of the past couple of days was finally getting these vintage pouches re-shot. I've been selling them on-and-off in my antique mall booths for a couple of years and finally have them wittled down to the lot above. I've shot the entire collection three times! I've never pleased with it, they're so gorgeous in person and they're really hard to shoot without them looking "fuzzy" or asymmetrical.
I have four large ones hanging out in my shop's apparel section. ------->>> On Etsy
He's already getting some positive attention on Etsy. ------->>> On Etsy
I like my muses so much they appeared in my latest product shoot idea. I have two in mind for shooting my art prints behind-the-scenes. I have a line of them in my Etsy shop and do custom signs of various sizes- let me know if you're interested. (Big Thriftin' sign here, the others here). They're only $15 each, can't beat it for unique wall art and supporting a good cause *coughack*thisbloghere*coughspit*.
Buy It. You Know You Want it.... All of these items will be listed online (or ebay or Etsy) soon (will update with links) if you'd like to buy anything you see PLEASE do e-mail me! Get it all away from me! Halp!
