Another Summer's End

Here we have arrived at another summer's end.  Where do all those warm blissful days disappear to?  I hope that all of my readers have enjoyed a wonderful summer season.

I found my summer was spent mostly on increasing the inventory for my Etsy online shop, Wilkes Vintage Finds.  The summer showed a spurt of increased sales activity. 

This activity was pinnacled by a Summer Clearance Sale offering 50% off selected items.  I chose items within a wide range of items within my shop.

I have found many conveniences by listing my shop with Etsy.com.  Etsy has made things very simple and clear to assist online shop keepers with making sales.

One category, in particular, that I have found most helpful has been the photo section included when a new item is listed for sale.  I have not been very adept with the use of digital photography.  However, I have found what a small wonder my Samsung Camera Phone can be in assisting with photos for my listings.

Etsy has many wonderful tips and help features built in to its website.  I have found ease of editing and updating photos for many items that have been of interest to a particular customer's inquiry.  I doubt I would have made as many sales to date without the technical assistance of Etsy and my Samsung Camera Phone.

To date, I have had 48 sales that included 3 refunds.  I have been happy with my shop's progress through the months.  October 9th will be my 1st anniversary of Wilkes Vintage Finds.  Yes, I will definitely be holding an anniversary sale in a few weeks.

I encourage my readers that may be looking to supplement their income through either the sale of homemade crafts or vintage items to go to http://www.etsy.com/ and take a look at the possibilities.

Until my next post....

My interest with writing began by composing poems about nature in my childhood. I also co-wrote a play in my 4th grade class when I lived in New Rochelle, NY. It generated enough positive feedback that my class put on the play in the school auditorium. I was fortunate to have a lead part. After my high school graduation, I entered the working world. For over 30 years I have been steadily gaining writing, editing and digital publishing skills. I began by composing letters and emails to company clients. I contributed to articles written for The Commuters Register based in Windsor, CT. Since 2009, I have added social media, digital publishing and blogging here in Wilkesboro, NC. Since 2010, I write ad copy for the listing descriptions for each of my 3 Internet shops open at Etsy.com. In 2012, I entered a poem about my dog Red in the World Poetry Contest. The poem was chosen for publication. I have written articles for the Winston-Salem Frugal Living Examiner and Hub Pages. In 2012, I acquired The Wilkes Gazette digital newspaper that was renamed the Wilkes County Gazette in 2014. I write under both my own name and my pen name, Jeanne Armonk.
