I started on Etsy on July 15, 2006. After selling for a couple years I went back to full time teaching so my Etsy shop sat and waited. I reopened Kibbles 'N Knits this summer. I just made my first sale (second time around)!
I sold two of the antique baby gowns I have for sale:
I bought these at a garage sale in my sister's neighborhood. The woman I bought them from told me her grandfather wore them and that they were about 100 years old. At first I thought I might cut them up for crafting. After hearing that they belonged to this woman's grandfather, I didn't have the heart to cut them. I thought I might send them to my very talented Aunt Penny. But, I thought she might just cut them up. After some deliberation I decided to sell them in my Etsy shop. I hope the people who buy them can treasure them!
PS My very first sale as Kibbles 'N Knits was this alien guitar pick holder. It sold on August 15, 2006.
