March Madness and the Brown Leather Jacket of Goodwill

The month of March flew by a little too fast for me. I feel like I've been really busy but I haven't done anything..
Either way, the shop is looking up, a lot more than I could hope for. I've gotten more sales in the last month than all the other months combined. Every time I get a sale, I'm still pretty shocked. 

Good news though. I've been taking a lot more pictures, and doing that, combined with a basic, clean background helps a lot bc all the attention is drawn to the item for sale and not all the colors and knick knacks in the background. Yesterday I sold my fave purse, the GOLD LION Versace Inspired Handbag 
I've had this purse up for months already, and it got a lot of inquiries, but no takers. I re-shot it last week and BAM, out the door. So I guess that's the secret.  The purse has a Versace feel, but these D&B purses are somewhat similar. Not a fan of Dooney and Burke in general, but I love these clutch purses. 

Another item that went out the door was the GIRL CANT HELP IT Leather Biker Jacket ..I've had it up since Oct. of last year. This was my sister's jacket, she wore it back in her indie days, and sometimes our brother would take out to romance the hs babes. hahah.. Every cent of this sale is going back to my sister, because she's starting up a scholarship program down in Guatemala (she's a peace corps volunteer working with children at the middle school/high school level). So this jacket just paid for an entire year of education for 1 hardworking, deserving kid. I am really happy about that, so I'm going to keep donating what I can. Check out her blog, HueHue Scholars
