Hello Everyone:)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope your Holidays were wonderful! Lots of family and friends fun here. And sleep overs too!!! Including a 'blizzard party'.lol
Last time I posted I mentioned that I had something exciting for all of you. As you know, Nicole, my daughter, and I own the on-line boutique; We sell vintage items as well as vintage inspired handmade things. It is a lot of fun and we really enjoy it. We enjoy the whole experience of buying, selling, creating and meeting new people. Which got me to thinking; how can we share this experience of our site with more customers and help other entrepreneurs  too.

Well, I am very excited to share with you that this is what I came up with: Tuesdays we will start posting just a few of our new products on this blog. AND I am inviting YOU to advertise here too for FREE!!! We will put a Linky up and a button and all you have to do is grab our button for your sidebar on your blog and add your website to the linky. It is that simple!  It is a win / win for everyone. Those of you who do not have a web site or etsy will find the cream of the crop here. Those of you who advertise with us will find the cream of the crop customers! I know how much advertising can be. I also know how powerful we all are if we gather together and share. And I am all about sharing:)

We all sell different kinds of things, vintage, antique and handmade so there will be a large selection, all treasures..I really think it will be so much fun. I know that we post our businesses on our blogs but sometimes they are overlooked. Tuesdays will be dedicated to selling and purchasing and just getting to meet new people. Lets make 2011 an extraordinary one! What do you think? Are you in??? We will be up and running in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned. I would love to hear your input and ideas!!!

'Till next time..............

P.S. FEEL FREE TO SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Please let me know how to do that on my blog too as I would love to return the favor to you girls.
    Hugs to both of you, Amy

  2. What a generous idea, looking forward to it.
    Happy New Year,

  3. Great idea...might have to try it...

  4. Great idea Debra, both for buyers and sellers... exposure is everything and its so generous of you to network with others and share your space and sphere of influence so unselfishly. Today my Post was about purging and editing... I seriously need to consider selling off some of my excess so in 2011 this may be something I want to participate in to ensure they go to good homes. *smiles, you know how our lovelies become like extended Family, wink*... May 2011 be a most prosperous and Blessed one for you my Friend... Dawn... The Bohemian

  5. That sounds like a fun and useful idea! Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I know you are super duper busy, but if you get a chance, can you drop me a reminder next Tuesday for me to drop by for a looksie? Would love to see what it is all about. Just love your sharing spirit and when I get MY friggin website up (hard drive still not back from crash) I will be in touch with you about an idea I have for a page...more on that later! :-)

    Best of 2011 for you and so happy that your blog is going so well - so happy to be a part of such a wonderful community!
    Big hug

  6. What a wonderful and generous idea. I'll be back for updates .Almost makes me want to take my etsy off permanent vacation : D

    Happy New Year!


  7. Debra this is such a great idea and so generous of you. You have such a big heart and I can say that because I have been with you in person...YOU ARE THE REAL DEAL!!!!


  8. Wow! That sounds like a great idea! I think it will be a lot of fun! Can't wait to see more! Gonna be leaving that day for Texas, so I won't get to visit for a couple of weeks! But I'll be thinking about it!

  9. thanks so much debra for your sweet comment! i think your idea is wonderful! all the best in 2011 to you and your daughter.



  10. Hi Debra
    What a generous gift for you to share with others. You and your girl are quite the team. Thank you for always being so supportive of others and sharing your kindness through friendship. Have a wonderful week!!


  11. Oh I like this idea also.

    I was just thinking of selling lots of items I have collected over the years and I could go live with you and lots of others I am sure.

    I started selling at a flea market twice a year but have lots to sell.


  12. What a great idea! I'll be here! Sometimes etsy is easy to miss on the blogs, but this will give us a chance to see all the goodies! thanks a bunch for doing this.

  13. Debra,
    thank you for inviting me to join in the Tuesday fun and the support and exposure that it offers my brand new Etsy shop.
    It is a very generous and kind offer which I plan on taking you up on next week.
    Hope you get the Mr Linky problem sorted in time.
    Maggie @ Normandy Life.

  14. I'll participate! I started Flea Market Fridays on my Shabbyinthecity (all gone now) blog a few years ago. Then Polly took it over at French Cupboard.

    I think my Greystone and your Sophia might be twins :)
    I just put you in my sidebar...oh, what are we calling this tuesday linky party? so I can blog about it.
