Today’s Friday Featured Seller is Jackie Liberto, from the Etsy shop EstateSaleShop. Learn more about her and her wares in the interview below. (Plus, find out how you can snatch up a free $5 to spend in her shop!)
Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I am quirky, eclectic, dramatic, and erratic. I have four chronic illnesses and I am in pain all the time. I am a single parent of a teenager with Asperger’s as well as a full time student.
Tell us about what you sell:
I sell vintage. Vintage ephemera, books and housewares and jewelry. Also, a few random items.
What is your favorite thing about selling?
My favorite part about selling vintage is finding new homes for no longer loved items. It is like getting puppies adopted. I love it.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Well, I have always been in love with the 40s and 50s. I just started collecting things. This shop is really just helping me to not be a hoarder. However (and oddly) once I opened a store, I started finding ridiculous deals on things. Also friends started dropping things off. Oh Jackie sells vintage, lets give it to her! I have 3 times as much inventory in my apartment as I do in my shop.
Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Not really. This shop is not my livelihood, so I don’t try really hard. That sounds snottier than i mean to. It is more a hobby, something i want to be fun, not hard work.From what i hear from others, you should get on top of all the social media. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, etc.
Do you have a coupon code for us?
why yes! HolidazeSale will get you 14% off your order.
