Etsy has slowed way down. Only one sale and very little views and likes?….Not sure why? I list or re-list 1-2 items every day. eBay is picking up as I list daily. My goal is to list 5-10 things a day. Since I started doing that regularly, sales have picked up.

Custom Mann Box With Engraved Front

, , , , , , ,

Shipped this off to New York to a postmaster…….His friends have gifted him this box as he had just been promoted to the top spot in the post office. Following in his fathers foot steps.

This is the first time I have engraved the front. Have only done the bottom before now, and was much easier with black pen. I didn’t have a gold pen so I painted it. Should have taken the time to go get the gold pen! Came out very nice and next time will be much easier….Live and learn.

Available here on Etsy.

Snow Day!

My workshop is under cover but pretty much outdoors, so can get bloody cold. Today was going to be a busy day finishing up a couple of orders on Etsy, but I called a snow day and had a few snow ball fights and went sleding.

These are pictures of our garden and other bits and bobs around the house and our neighbors pond.

 

Jewelry Cabinet

, , , , ,

This was a custom order from Make Local Habit, which a shop in Grass Valley that has a bunch of my items.

I love custom orders, because I get to make something new and that means my shop expands with new ideas for people to come up with even more ideas and custom orders. This one was especially good, because it could be offered in 6 different ways, 6 different listings to add to my shop. The original order was for a jewelry cabinet with a door and 2 drawers.

….But could also be offered with a door and no drawer and a door and just 1 drawer.

…..And also no door with no drawer…..1 drawer and 2 drawers.

Available from Old Country General in 16 colors.

Steampunk Money Box

, , , , , , , ,

I got a custom order for a steampunk money box and made this for them:

Made from all reclaimed materials ….Vintage Post office box door off of Ebay, reclaimed wood as the shell, upholstery pins from an old piece of furniture, motherboards, vcr parts, bits and bobs from old junk drawers bought at yard/estate sales, vintage watch and clock parts, even the screws and paint are from yard/estate sales.

Comes with your very own secret 3 number combination.

I’m inspired to make more in the coming months maybe with different style doors and also maybe a cabinet or two of the same flavour.

You can custom order your very own one of a kind steampunk money box here on Etsy
