I started out listing vintage items that Louie and I have picked up at estate and garage sales.
It's the thrill of the hunt that keeps us going back and searching out fun and unusual items. And I'll be honest, the extra money has come in handy.
We started re-purposing things into new items....
Then I took vintage silver plated silverware and turned the pieces into garden stakes....
And that evolved into making hand stamped bracelet cuffs and key chains....
It's an ever evolving process that we are constantly tweaking. But it's nice that Louie and I can spend time together looking for things to sell or re-purpose. And I love sitting and stamping things. For me it's relaxing.
There are a lot of bloggers out there who have helped and supported me by sharing my website and/or buying things from me. You all know who you are and I appreciate it. Thank you so much because I could not have done it without your help. xo
Ok, so on to 200 sales!! And don't forget - it's not too late to sign up for EBATES and get CASH back in your pocket!
Sign up for EBATES - It's FREE. They work with big name stores like Amazon, Marriott Hotels, Penney's, Walmart, Neiman Marcus, Bath & Body Works, Groupon, Sears and Kohl's among many others.
Here's basically how it works...
- Sign up on their site and use their links whenever you buy something on-line. Hey, if you're going to order something on-line, why not use it and get the rebate credit, right? With the holidays coming up, lots of you are going to be ordering gifts from on-line stores and if they are affiliated with the Ebates program, you're going to get a rebate. Why in the world wouldn't you use them and get that money back? It's money in your pocket.
Here's an example - say you want to book a hotel using Hotels.com. You click on their EBATES link and you'll see a page like this. You choose it and it will redirect you to Hotels.com and when you book it, you get 4 % back. Holy cow!! Easy right?
- Ebates makes their payments to you 4 times a year. I signed up last year and I've gotten money back every quarter. If you want, you can have your money sent to your Pay Pal account. What could be easier?
- You also earn money when you refer people and they sign up and use Ebates. More free money! For every 3 people who sign up and use it, YOU earn $ 100.00. Yes, one hundred dollars.
I just got a rebate check of $ 60.00. It's well worth it. Go to Ebates and check out their huge list of stores. I bet you'll find at least 10 stores that you buy from.
Use this link. Use me as a referral and I will earn a few dollars from it. Sign up now and earn money in your pocket almost every time you purchase something on line. Thanks!
