So, one of my many goals of 2019 is to finally bring some new items to market.
Man cannot live by coaster alone! (but man should always use a coaster – ALWAYS!)
Up first on the list are my serving trays.
If you’ve been with me for a while you know I’ve been making these (and sharing how I make them) right along.
They have been a hit at in-person shows and at the various local stores that carry them.
However, selling them online requires taking photos, figuring out how to ship them them etc and I’ve been dragging my feet on that front.
But no more!
I’m happy to report that I’ve used this time of crappy weather to get the first four designs up on Etsy.
First up is one of my best sellers – inspired by those great WPA posters for our National Parks
And if you know me you know of my (somewhat inexplicable) love for vintage milk bottle caps has no bounds so, naturally there has to be a Vintage Dairy Serving Tray
And one of the more fun things I’ve been designing over the past year are so are my “vintage” airport code, luggage tag coasters
so, naturally, there has to go with them!
And lastly, these fun, colorful, antique bicycle ads always make me smile
On the way are Library Cards, Vintage Bathing Beauties, Patent Art, Los Angeles and a raft of other ideas.
Other than that achievement -which, though it’s silly, I have to tell you feels like a huge hurdle hurdled- it has been slow around here mostly because of the aforementioned lousy weather.
Maybe, just maybe, we could get something that would be in-between “no weather” and “biblical” weather? Just a thought.
However, the gloomy weather did justify extensive napping which is a bonus.
OK, well the sun is sorta out today and it’s time to get back to work. Those trays won’t make themselves!
