Orchid and Vintage

I hope the time change, for those in the U.S, is not screwing you up like it's screwing me up. We don't really have clocks in our house other than the ones on the satellite and the computers. The satellites changed by themselves, and we have been too lazy to change the others. The inconsistency is driving me crazy. I keep running back and forth to make sure I know what time it is. I'm forcing Steve to change the remaining clocks.

Well, I decided I did not have enough work to do with my one shop on Etsy and started a second. I have had plans for awhile to do this because K and I have been wanting to start a shop for pottery. We just have to find a good place to put our kilns. I didn't want to wait any longer because I had a name so I opened one up for my vintage things and supplies.

As many of you know, I am remodeling and have found so many vintage items that I have acquired from yard sales, flea markets, and auctions. They either no longer fit my style or I never had the heart to throw them away when they came in box lots and didn't need them. I'm such a hoarder. It's all my father's fault. He's an auctioneer and antiques dealer/appraiser. His house is full to the brim and overflowing. I'm trying to break the cycle.

I've even sold my first item in my little shop which was surprising as I had to wait 6 weeks for my first sale at JewelStreet. I only have two items in the shop right now, but I have a ton getting ready. I'm going to spread them out as we all know that's the best way to do things. My first two items are pictured- a vintage set of 3teacups and a strand of multi-colored two hole onyx beads. I'm getting ready to list a really pretty vintage porcelain horse figurine.

So, stop Orchid Pottery and check out my very bare but up and coming shop. It's kind of fun starting all over again.

Okay, I can see now that I'm going to have a major problem staying out of your new shop! I love those cups & saucers! I'd say more but I've got to go and check out your shop, heart & drool. Thanks a lot. *jk* :D

Congrats on opening a second shop. It sounds wonderful & I'm looking forward to seeing all of the goodies you stock it with!

The time change has royally screwed me up here. I couldn't fall asleep until late and could barely wake up when my alarm went off!

Second shops are definitely fun! Good luck! :)

Yeah, we are definitely sisters!

Can't see what else you list (and tell Dad to give up some of his stuff, too!)

beautiful items, I am so glad I found your blog, it is lovely.

I, too, am a hoarder. I blame that on my husband.

I hate the time change! Please pick one daylight savings or not, but just pick one!

our time doesn't change for a couple of weeks yet, I'm looking forward to it being lighter though. Your new shop is looking good, the tea cups are beautiful!
