BEEN THERE DONE THAT

I had given notice on my booth and this last month everything (but the fireplace) was 75% off.

I had my sisters help today so we drove out to get the fireplace. There wasn't much left and since we were there, we decided to just wrap it up and take it all with us. The old guy at the desk told me my total...enough for my water bill and a tank of gas. OK, technically if I tallied it all up I'd still be in the hole but Hey, at least I only bought stuff for the booth that I could use in my house....and/or put on Etsy.

Woman, you crack me up!!! We always spend more on stuff than we anticipate to sell....that's the law of the land!! hahahahaha!!!

I've avoided those craft/antique
malls because that's what others have told me and I don't think we have one here in "El Piso" anyway!!

Regardless, you have a bit of coin to pay the bills and that gasoline lined in friggin' gold!!

xxoo,

You tried, right? I think that counts for a lot. As for making money, I am REALLY bad at it, and every year, if I have made enough extra to go on a little vacation, I feel like WOO HOO! I am a success! hahaha!

It is a feather not to have given right.
But as our friend says the top you tried.. it was not worthwhile.. but you would never know about that if you didn't try.
I have to give you the congratulations for your courage.
an enormous kiss.

Linda, Sure! Thanks for the compliment! If you would just link them back to my blog, that would be great.
I am on Facebook,but I'm not on it very often. Actually it confuses me sometimes! LOL! But I will make an effort to figure it out!
