This is my second reason for selling on Etsy.
I had never heard the term Destash until I started selling on Etsy.
Destash refers to the process of liquidating your stashes.
A detox for hoarders.
What I have are lots of stashes.
Things I bought, mostly at Estate Sales, thinking that I might make something with them
thought they were interesting/intriguing/fun/different/appealing.
|More than 150 old I Ching Coins|
My tastes run in two directions. First, simple, ordinary things AND, second
things I've never seen before.
|90 or so old Package Handles|
But, whatever it is I always buy in volume, if possible.
|A hundred old Pin Nibs|
All that adds up to many stashes now being destashed on Etsy.
|Around 50 Bulldog Clips|
These are photos of things I have destashed in my first 6 months on Etsy.
|Two dozen old Souvenir Spoons|
Maybe over time all of these things could/would have sold at shows, but think of the packing, unpacking,
hauling, displaying, and hoping for the right person to stop by my booth to buy them.
|Hundreds of Matching Empty Sewing Spools|
Now, all of these things, some of which I had hundreds of, are gone and happily
living all around the world.
|Hundreds more Matching Sewing Spools with Thread|
I like to say that they are again "Seeing the Light of Day" instead of hanging
around my basement languishing.
|Gobs and Gobs and Gobs of Keys|
As these collections are destashed... other collections are peaking out of their
previously hidden locations.
