2012 was the first full year I have been selling quality vintage items on Etsy as Vintagepoetic, and it couldn’t have been better. In spite of a move and a wedding, I’ve been able to build up my stock, start this blog, and expand the shop from a mix of vintage and handmade items to a vintage only shop.
Looking forward to 2013, I hope to build up a loyal following with more repeat customers. Sometime in the next few months I will be launching a Facebook page as well, to help expand beyond what WordPress, Twitter, and Pinterest have already done to help get the word out. I’m also toying with starting another shop, making Vintagepoetic solely a vintage china and housewares shop, and opening a second shop for the books and records. Perhaps a handmade goods shop is in the future as well, I’ve got a lot of ideas, but not enough time to make them all come to fruition.
I also have this lovely 1900’s farmhouse to furnish and decorate, digging through the barns and thrift shops of Mid Michigan and beyond to find the perfect furniture and goodies to make this house a home for me and my family. Looking forward to sharing my finds here on the blog, as well as in the shop.
