In case you were unaware, my seller love affair with Etsy ended about a year ago when my sales started to take a nose dive. It was at that time that I started listing my more valuable inventory on eBay, quietly at first, like a dirty little secret, and then in ever increasing numbers. And shockingly, unlike on Etsy, my items were actually selling on eBay. Since quitting my state job in August, selling has become less novelty and more necessity. After hemming and hawing over what to do with my Etsy store, which I loved, and being censored by an Etsy admin on a forum (I did not curse or talk shit about anyone’s shop, but rather talked shit about Etsy’s absurd blog), I abruptly decided to close shop and move everything to eBay. Screw it! Needless to say it’s been a very pleasant and busy first few weeks and I couldn’t be happier. I’m proud to announce I’m now an eBay “Power Seller” and have officially opened Temple of Vintage on eBay. I only wish I had made the move to eBay sooner, I likely could have quit my state job last year if I had.
Though my picking has decreased somewhat, I have found some great stuff recently that deserves some honorable mentioning, so without further ado, onto the picks (in no particular order)…
In the middle of all this we also managed to go to ACL and see Electric Six, Depeche Mode, and The Cure.
And my reaction to Portugal. The Man’s cover of It’s Always Sunny’s “Day Man”. Disclosure: I’m obsessed with Depeche Mode and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Best. ACL. Ever (even with Sunday being rained out).
