Well it's been nearly another month since my last post. I had wanted to keep the blog updated regularly with vintage stuff, but I'm so busy with working that I don't even think of the blog. I'm going to try to keep it more updated with vintage related items, and some other little junk too. Anyone who actually checks out this blog is probably tired of hearing about birds, and squirrels and turkeys out in our yard, so I won't talk about them in this post.
I'm taking a short break from ebay, because it is becoming a little frustrating selling vintage there. The vintage clothing categories are flooded with repros and new junk that have no business being listed there. You have to wade through new and repro stuff to try to find true vintage clothing. It's very frustrating for buyers, including myself. I don't buy as much as I use to on ebay because of this and I know other vintage buyers have given up there too. A few people from the vintage clothing community on ebay are working with category managers from ebay to try to enforce listing policies in regard to true vintage clothing and other muck. I think the new rules will start in March.
That's just one reason why I am taking a break from ebay though. I really want to get back to focusing on my website. I'd much rather list my stock on my site and build it up, and only list occasional specialty items on ebay. For example, I have some nice mens hats that I will probably list in a few weeks. Why give my best stuff to ebay when it could go up on my website? The vintage market has changed so much over the past few years, so I have to change the way that I do business. I'm still plowing my way through the backstock that I bought back in Nov/Dec. That's going to keep me busy for many months to come.
Now, I am a super sappy sucker when it comes to sentimental doggie stories. I love dogs and stories about dogs saving people lives, or dogs trained to take care of people with special needs or dogs that visit hospitals, or are lost and find their way home. I loves those stories. Last night on Animal Planet, I saw a show about a gal, she lived a very hard life. She had no family, was homeless and on drugs. But the love of a dog turned her life around, and she then devoted her life to saving dogs. Now, I have great admiration for people who devote their lives to helping animals. I enjoyed the show and she seemed pretty cool and the dogs were so sweet. So I checked out her website and made a little donation this morning - Rocket Dog Rescue
Project Runway - I was voting for Nick and I do still like him. But now I'd like Daniel to win, he gets better each week. Heidi Klum - beautiful girl - horrible dresser. And it's not because she is pregnant this season, because she wore horrible clothing last year too.
Now for something un-vintage related. File this story under 'She really is retarded isn't she?' It's about Britney Spears. She does alot of stupid things and this has to really top it all. And her excuse of being chased by photographers and fearing for her baby's life is stupid. Why didn't the bodyguard drive while she could have gotten in the backseat to put the baby in the car seat? - Baby on Board
