I'm Done


I sat in a freezing cold room with no heat and sold 2 bags today at a craft fair. After paying $35 to be in it and donating a bag I basically lost money-not to mention one of the people running the show walked around drinking a beer ?? I am not sure why I thought this was a good idea. I am so tired of feeling let down. I guess that comes from expecting too much, I should lower my standards.
I stopped at a new craft store to see if they were interested in selling some bags on consignment and the owner makes them herself and sells them for $25. I am asking $20 but it doesn't matter.
I am so frustrated and like I have time to waste or money to spare.

Listen, you are talented and you don't need to lower your standards. Completely opposite.
You need to up them.
Time to hit some shops or Ebay.

Do you have an eBay account? If so - start listing. List those - and anything else you have to get rid of in the house. There are fees involved, but if you keep doing it - it CAN make you a buck.

We just sold our horse trailer thanks to Craig's List. So, Mama is right. Whip it out on eBay!
