Pillows, Purses, and Pretties, Oh My!

I took the plunge and reopened my Etsy shop and
I would love to share with you how I came to this decision. . .

About a month ago my mom and I were shopping at some local boutiques
and while we were out and about two ladies commented on my mom's purse.
It was one of the quilted tote bags that I have made in the past.
The second lady that commented on it was a shop owner 
and she asked me if I sold my bags anywhere.
I told her that I wasn't selling any at the moment 
so she asked if I would be interested in selling my bags 
and other handmade items in her shop.
She requested $50.00 a month for a small {very small} table
and she would take 25% of my sale.
Well, I was thrilled and honored to have such interest 
and it got me thinking about reselling again.
So. . .instead of going through Rose's boutique
I decided it would be best to simply reopen my shop again.
This way I can fill it up when I have time :)

I love making things that will put a smile on someones face
and Etsy is the perfect outlet.

I hope you stop by Rose Petal Blessings, sweet friends.
The shop is full of new goodies and delights.
Here are some items that are listed at

Burlap Pillows







Tote Bags








Zippered Pouches






Tea Cup Coasters and Tea Bag Holders






Magnets






Tags and Cards






Quilted Baskets With Goodies Inside




Fabric Flower Bouquets






Lavender Sachets




And so much more!

Dearest Stephanie,
Congrats on that decision and you're smart for selling direct without handing your profits to someone else!
It is very hard already for making any profit when making things by hand but as long as you enjoy doing it, that counts.
Hugs,
Mariette

Congratulations -- beautiful things you make! I'll have to stop over and browse :) I have an Etsy shop and wish I could devote more time to it -- would sure love to quit my day job and just 'create'! Some day!

Robyn said...

I love those beautiful pillows, Stephanie!! So exquisite!
Congrats on re-opening the shop and I will be one of the first buyers. I would like that camera bag but I need to ask if you can customize it for me. I want to carry my camera in it so I need it to have some protection for my camera in there. Do you think that's possible? It's so adorable!
Let's talk :)
