My First Sale

I decided to open up shop on December 30th. I went thrifting in town because I was bored, and found a few items to start up the vintage part of my shop. Then, on January 1st, I got my first Etsy sale of the year and TheVintagePatisserie's first sale EVER with this fun item:

Things I learned:

1. A lot more packaging is required when shipping vintage items over handmade items.

2. Shipping costs quadruple.

3. I love selling vintage!

More blog posts coming soon!! Pssst.... what do you think of the background?
