Etsy Shop Name- Sea Sand

As an undergrad every student was given an email using the First Letter of their first name and the last Four Letters of their Last name. Thus, I was given the email username, "csand". Realizing that I had a great new username that when pronounced is C SAND or SEA SAND. I began using it whenever I needed to use a username. It was obvious that when I opened my Etsy Store that I would once again!

Wrapping Love

I love wrapping sold items! Here is the Printer's Block - Letter "R" that was sold. I always attach my business card and thank you note along with the sold item.

I have also sold and wrapped the Vintage Cream Terrycloth Knit Cotton Fabric.

And the Moroccan Finger Cymbals have also sold! It looks like my shop is doing quite well for the holidays!

Art of Museum Bags

During my vacation I went to many amazing museums and galleries. What I love about visiting these organizations is the marketing, informational information and paper ephemera (like gift bags and postcards). The organization's personality and reputation are represented so well with these bags, tickets and informational packets.

My Favorite Vintage Etsy Buys

The Vintage Wire and Wood Record Stand was purchased from Bouquet. The Vintage Gnomes Book was from LoudMouse and the View Receipt Retro Kitsch 1960s Green Plastic Snack Party Set from the now closed, junkculture. I love these pieces, my love of David the Gnome and other Gnomes like him make this book very dear to my heart. The Record Stand currently holds all of my Vintage Records and the Retro Kitsch items are still in my kitchen and I use them often! Not only were these pieces great finds, they also inspired me to sell my own vintage pieces online.
