Tuesday Noon here, raining still, since last Thursday. Rain makes Boris sleepy, actually everything makes him sleepy!
Things feel like they are piling up here, I bought two loads of vintage within a month, and I've been working my way steadily through the stuff, but the racks and boxes just seem to be getting fuller and fuller. Things are selling slowly. It's been a very slow start to what should be a busy time for selling online. Things usually are slow at the beginning of each month, and then pick up mid-month. So here's to the middle of the month!
I put up a 2nd Featured Items page on the website which will feature some of the items that are slated to go up for auction on ebay. Here, my customers can get a chance to buy them before they go to ebay. That page will change (I've already pulled several item to put up on auction Monday night) as I remove and add items. I'll probably only remove items when I list on Sunday and Mondays, but I can add items to that page at anytime, once I get them typed up. I'm getting ready to type up some auction items this afternoon, and about 11 of those items with be added to the preview Featured page later today. Here's a peek at a few of the items -
And this is the Featured page that I'm talking about -
I'm just about fed up with my hair. I had been trying to grow it out, for several years now. But my face is kind of long and narrow and my hair gets to a certain length and I don't like it, so I cut it. Which is usually fine, but this time I just don't like it, it's just blah and flat. Maybe it's the rain making it that way.
I've also got to get out and buy some jeans. I used to be a sz4, but I've been gaing weight over the last 1-1/2 years, and last Winter I moved up to sz6, which was fine because I've always been too skinny. Then earlier this Spring I was slowly reaching sz8, which I am also fine with. So I went out and bought a few pairs of sz8 jeans. The the weather got warm and we started moving, so I bought several pairs of capris to get through the Summer. I lost weight while we were moving so I was in between sz6 and sz8. Now that I'm settled back into sitting most of the day and eating on time, I'm just about back up to sz8. Pulling out some cooler weather clothing, I realized that I only have 2 pairs of jeans that fit me now! The sz6 stretch jeans are just too tight, I prefer the 8's which are a little looser. I've tried buying jeans online, but I'm so picky about the shade of denim and the leg width and the pockets on the behind. I just have to see the jeans in person. I think I'm going to trek down to Cape May Court House to do some shopping. The town where I use to live, Deptford, had a Mall and many stores nearby to shop at. Now where we live, the stores are further away. Kmart is about 30 minutes (I love their Route 66 jeans, they always fit me perfectly) and there's no Target around here (I love their t-shirts, a perfect blend of cotton and lycra) I think there is a Marshall's or TJ Maxx in CMCH, but I'm not very familiar with shopping in them. I do know that there is a hospital thrift shop across the street from the shopping center, so maybe a take a walk through there too.
OK, back to work now!
Bye for now, Carol
