New Jewelry Junkie shop on Etsy

I've decided to try my hand at selling on Etsy.  I used to sell on Ebay many years ago, but have never tried Etsy.  It will certainly be a new experience.  My friend Natalie has encouraged me to give it a try for awhile.  From what I can tell, there are quite a large number of successful sellers on the site. 

On another note, I have new mini-charms (quite a large collection of them) that will be available at Wishes and Dreams tomorrow and online this coming week. They retail for $6 each or 2 for $10. They each measure around 1/2 inch to 3/4 of an inch and look great grouped together on a long ball chain.

Sale at The Jewelry Junkie

Take 75% off regular price this week at The Jewelry Junkie on Clearance and Christmas Merchandise.
Prices are good through January 10th.  Over the next few weeks new jewelry and T-shirts will begin to arrive for the Spring.  Out with the old, in with the new.

I'm going to try my hand at a new jewelry craft this week.  I just bought all the supplies and am going to learn the art of Metal Stamping.   If everything goes as planned, I will be able to personalize charms on-the-spot with your choice of names, initials, phrases, etc.   Should be a good addition to current Jewelry Junkie product lines.

Finally, I've spent most of my vacation finishing my new website.  Take a  I'd love feedback/comments.

New website, new blog, just in time to kick off the New Year!!!

The first post on my new Jewelry Junkie blog.....I never thought I'd be doing this, but here goes....

Little by little, I'm learing to be a "real" retailer.  I've almost survived my first Christmas season as The Jewelry Junkie at Wishes and Dreams, and am in the process of opening a new location in Gorman, TX.  Yes, a little far away from home, but I think it will be a good town for The Jewelry Junkie.  Reminds me a little of my humble up-bringings in Booneville, KY.
I also have survived the ins and outs of designing and creating a new website.  It really shouldn't have been quite so difficult, but as the designers would attest, I am complicated and picky.  So goes my life.

I have lots of new things coming into the store every week at Wishes & Dreams.  Stop by and check them out when you get a chance....2805 Park Row Drive, Arlington TX.  I've included a few pics in this post.  I hope to have them all uploaded to my new website within the week.  Merry Christmas!!!
