About Vintage Southern Picks~
Hi, I’m Florence, the one-woman-show behind Vintage Southern Picks! And yes, I’m a real person behind the logo and the name.
Why I Started This Blog~
The main reason I started this blog was because friends, family, and acquaintances often ask:
- I want you to teach me how to sell
- How do I start
- How do I navigate Ebay or Etsy
- Where do I get stuff to sell
- How do I ship
- How do I get paid
Why I’m Qualified to Give Tips for Selling…
I’ve been selling on Ebay for 18 years and Etsy for 4 and ship all over the world. I’ve sold locally in antique booths, and occasionally in flea markets. As an avid junker/picker, I go to yard/estate sales, and thrift stores almost every week, and drive hubby crazy hunting for junk even on vacations!
I really enjoy sharing my knowledge and passing along tips I’ve learned. I show what I buy, pay, and sell for. You can find these in my “Vintage Finds” posts. Many sellers refuse to reveal anything due to the fear of competition.
I love vintage items and junk, which is why I can’t resist poking through an interesting trash pile! When I get the opportunity, I check out the nearest dumpster too.
I also enjoy DIY’ing some vintage finds as not all are in the best of shape. I will be sharing those with my readers too. You can find these in my DIY posts.
Where to Find Vintage Southern Picks~
Just in case you want to know, “Vintage Southern Picks” is the name of my Etsy shop, vintagesouthernpicks.etsy.com and my blog. You can find me on Social media Facebook—Pinterest—Twitter—Instagram–and Google+ as the same.
I encourage you to sign up for the blog! I post selling tips, vintage finds, or DIY projects once a week, so your inbox will never be swamped, and your email address never shared.
In the meantime, I hope you decide to stay a while and look me over!
