Worst Blogger Ever!

Atomic Moxie on Etsy

Wow, swear I am the worst blogger ever. Life really got in the way this last month, we barely went out searching for goodies:( That makes a very sad Atomic Moxie. The big news this month is the fact that I cannot overlook how much better sales have been on Ebay than Etsy. That revelation makes me very sad.I adore everything about Etsy...but this is business and for just isn't happening on Etsy:( We have shifted some goods over to Ebay and have been listing new ones all month. Check us out: Atomic Moxie Too I still believe in Etsy and will keep a selection there, in hopes that business will turn for the better.

I did find the coolest Christmas ornaments...Bottle brush balls from the 60s. I found 8 of them and they sold right away om Ebay. The same for the vintage McCoy smiley face mug...listed and gone...poof.

I haven't listed the oh so cool black and white MOD tray set yet, but should have it up tomorrow. It's one of those things I would love to keep, but really don't listed it goes.

So, what have you all been up to? If you celebrate Thanksgiving I hope you had a great one. Now its on to the Holiday countdown and Cyber Monday...I have no idea if that will really impact our online business...Its getting really exciting to sell and package all of our foundlings and then send them on to their new homes. Love that an Arabia of Finland pitcher is going back to its homeland:)

  1. First time reader, here from Apron Thrift Girl. I hear you on the selling on Ebay vs Etsy. I love Etsy and I keep most of my inventory there, but there are some special items that find the right kind of match on Ebay... We will see what happens with gift cards... Wishing you great sales.

  2. Those bottlebrush balls are AWESOME! I love old bb trees but I've never ever seen balls like the ones you found. So cool!

  3. Thank you Mid Mod Mom...Wishing you great sales too:) I hope the gift cards start to make a real difference. I do need to get more listed on Etsy myself.

  4. Heidi, I hadn't seen them before cool and they flew out of the shop on Ebay. I do hope I can find some more for myself.
