In my Etsy shop Screen Quotes the main idea behind it was to create printable art posters for fans of TV shows, both reality TV and scripted shows.
I started off with shows that I found entertaining but something I learned along the way is that everyone’s taste is different. For folks who aren’t amused by the Real Housewives or who don’t care to live vicariously through the Amazing Racers or Survivor Outcasts, these lines will not be of much interest.
New Etsy Shop Listings – Screen Quotes
When you just don’t have the words to make a situation right, sometimes all you can say is “Fix it Jesus”.
Real Housewife of Atlanta – Phaedra Parks said it so well and it just stuck. That was the inspiration behind this print, just re-listed…
This listing came close to it’s original expiration and I manually re-listed it, not as a strategy although I’ve heard from other Etsy sellers that renewing “stale” listings can be an effective method for keeping your Etsy shop fresh.
New Etsy Shop Listings – Simply Craft Supplies
I absolutely love thrifting and estate sales… I enjoy discovering old things. Whenever I travel I always make sure I build in time to scout around their local thrift shops, and when I see signs on the roads pointing to estate sales I practically screech the car wheels in the direction of the arrow.
I’ve already built up a stockpile of vintage stuff to sell off and I get excited listing and writing about them.
This particular shop – Simply Craft Supplies – is strictly for the crafting patterns I’ve picked up along the way (I’m debating changing the name so that I can sell all my vintage finds in here as well…).
I get excited when I see popular licensed stuff from way back when so when I saw these two patterns I hoped they’d be a hit for the right person.
My little nephews and nieces love the Berenstain Bears and I’ve even found myself watching a few episodes even when I wasn’t babysitting them… It’s good stuff.
One of my nephews has a nice little collection of the books and he keeps track of which ones he still would like to add to his BB library.
So when I saw this particular Berenstain Bears embroidery transfer pattern book I couldn’t resist. Personally, I can’t embroider but for the sewer or seamstress who can I hope they stumble on this treasure in my shop.
Interestingly, while I was doing some research about the book for the listing I discovered that there’s a whole “thing” about the spelling of the Bears’ name… Berenstein vs. Berenstain. I’m not sure where it all stemmed from but I just used the spelling that was on the book I have. 🙂
Right next to this one I also found this book of Walt Disney Characters embroidery transfers as well.
Both are from the 1980s though I initially thought they were older… Shelf wear… It’ll do that to a book.
The book has patterns for embroidering characters from Pinocchio to Bambi, Sleeping Beauty to Peter Pan.
No name spelling controversies here… 😉
