Pumpkin Hollow Flea Market ~ Selling Blog & Etsy Store

As you all know, thrift shopping is my passion.  My inventory is a menagerie of all of the sales that I have attended in years past.  My tastes are continually evolving, along with the plans of displaying or crafting with these items!  ;)  So what is a girl to do when the sales keep showing up in the local paper, but the shelves in the basement are beginning to buckle???  Well... my hubby said to have my own garage sale.  (Like I would ever get organized enough for that!)   My son wanted to scrap my metal finds.  (Perish the thought!)  So with no other suggestions, I was left to come up with my own solution.  Hmmmm... How about my own personal flea market?  I mean blogosphere flea market.

My hubby and I have friends that set up at flea markets every year, and of course, we always attend! :)  I had mentioned that it would be fun to be on the selling side once.  But after thinking long and hard about it, I knew all the preparation (packing and unpacking) would be too much for our busy schedules.  So that is when it popped into my mind to have my own flea market.  Or better yet, a blog that was dedicated to selling some of those items found on my adventures.  And as promised in the beginning of this blog, my Etsy store has been created, could still use a little refining ;), but  is currently waiting  for me to list my handmade creations.    

By the Fourth of July, my intention is to have my first listings at  Pumpkin Hollow Flea Market on Blogger and begin listing handmade and vintage items at the Pumpkin Hollow Store on Etsy (I will also post my Etsy store on each of my blog's sidebars, when it is up and running!).  

Listings will be made weekly,  so click to follow or sign up for email updates.  There will be some great bargains that will be a first to email first served set up.   Most items will be one of a kinds and will range from the items pictured... to fabric... to stitching kits... to some of my thrifty finds.  Just about anything and everything!   If anyone is looking for something in particular or an item viewed on this blog, feel free to drop me a line. :)

It has been a long week of preparation for these ventures.  (I will be glad to get back to posting my projects and travels. ;) )   It will be fun to evolve and learn the ropes as all of my blogs grow, and I hope you will enjoy popping in on all of my sites! :)
