Getting Ready for the Holidays

Since I'm back from my vacation I started listing some new items at both of my stores. In the next week or two, I'll start listing my vintage Christmas items. Too early you say? I can't be the only early Christmas shopper. I've found that if I plan out my shopping instead of waiting until the last minute Christmas is more affordable.

I'm also going to offer mailing directly to the gift recipient. You buy from me, and if you would like it mailed elsewhere just let me know know in the notes to seller when you check-out. I hope to start this in the next month or two, but I need some gift tags or mini cards, and haven't been able to find something I like. The black cat is my brand, so I need a realistic looking black cat with a holiday theme. If there are any card stores that you could recommend please put them in the comments. I'll be happy to take a look, and I prefer supporting small businesses like myself.

I have tried Alchemy on Etsy in the past. I was pleased with the product I received, I just didn't like telling the people that I didn't pick that I turned them down. I felt like a meanie, it's not like they did anything wrong. So, after doing that once I'm not a fan of the Alchemy format on Etsy. I may try the Zibbet forum if I can't find what I want, but hopefully one of my blog followers can help me out.

In the meantime, here's a couple of new items that I've listed, and much more on the way. It's time to get ready for the holidays.

I love the condition of this vintage Rival Juice O Mat juicer. It's for sale at Modred12 on Etsy.

These Fire King small bowls are for sale at my ModredVintage Zibbet shop.

Oh, I am so not ready to think about the holidays but you are right - some people start really early.

Great job planning ahead - the early bird get the worm!
