The Joys (and Woes) of Having a Thrift Shop

Don't faint ya'll.......yeah, I'm still among the living!! The shop is keeping us hopping, especially now in the holiday season. Praise God, all is good. But now, if I'm not at the shop, I'm making stuff every spare moment I have. I do take the time to check in on all my blog friends. Might not have time to post, but I do take a few minutes to read comments and your new posts.

We're opening Monday thru Saturday during the Christmas season and have lots of great new items for that special gift giving. Last night I made up some new candle tarts. These are going for $1.00 per bag of 2. I have Cherry Vanilla, Orange Spice, Cinnamon Stix and Indian Summer. I also made some oatmeal soap bars, which will be selling for $1.00 per bar. I still have a few tart loaves left in Christmas Spice, selling for $3.00 per loaf, and a few select Halloween Spice loaves which have been reduced to $2.00 per loaf.....a great bargain with a great fragrance!! I just put out some new tart burners for only $2.00 each...hurry, they're going fast!!

I'm moving most of my handmade items from my Ebay Store and Etsy Shop to the store, but if any of ya'll are looking for anything in particular, shoot me an email, 'cause I'm still shipping :)

Michelle has some great prim shelves (I just HAD to have a couple for the house). And we have LOADS of great Christmas decorations at cheap cheap prices.

Hope all ya'll have a Blessed Christmas, and let's all remember the REASON for the SEASON :)

Love all ya'll,

Vicki, so glad your store is doing well....busy, busy, huh? miss you and your posts....I am closing out my etsy store too and have a 20% off sale right now...going back to Ebay...wish I could visit your store in person...maybe you could offer a few things on your blog? That might work and won't cost anything...just a thought...
