Fall Clearance? Going Out of Business?

When I announced yesterday on Facebook that I was, "Selling It All", I was flooded with questions.

Is this a Fall Clearance?

Are you going out of business?

Are you going to stop blogging?

Are you moving?

Will you ship something if I'm not local?

How can you part with these things?

Okay, here's the deal.  You can call this a Fall Clearance, but, it's really more than that. With all the purging I've done over the Summer, I still have a lot.  Especially hardware, vintage smalls, and curiosities.

I'm not going out of business.  My business is going through changes, and, I have new endeavors on the horizon.  I'll be working smarter.

Blogging?  I'm not leaving.  However, there will be changes here too.

I'll be selling this weekend, and, beyond, till I get rid of everything I want gone.  If you're local (I'm in Lansing, IL), you're welcome to stop by.  Just email me for info.  If you're not local, feel free to send me an email if you see something you're interested in.

In no way is this everything.  I'll post more pictures over the next few days.

I'm selling away.


  1. WOW! I see dreams all over the place. Wish I was somewhere near, but I do love the bottle is several of the photos with the metal bottom and handles. How much and can it be safely shipped? Good luck with the sale.

  2. Sounds exciting! Good luck and keep us posted!

  3. Everything looks so interesting. Good luck with it all.

  4. It looks like you've got lots of goodies that will sell easily, Rosemary. It will be one less thing to have to think about once you have it gone.

  5. growth and changes are so refreshing, aren't they ?

    over here too!
    miss ya

  6. If I lived closer...I'd haul it all away for you. Your sale will be a huge success with all the vintage goodies you have.

  7. I love everything you do and I'm sure your sale will be a great success! It will be fun to hear what your future direction will take. I'm such a big fan of yours. Blessings to you, Patti

  8. I can tell that you must have something really exciting in your vision, Rosemary - and I am thrilled for you! Whatever it is, I KNOW it's going to be fabulous! I love the butterfly curtains or whatever that fabric is. What is it and how much? :) I'm praying for you as you step out on this new venture, my friend! :)

  9. Sounds very exciting! I would love to come and browse around -- every time you have a sale I'm unable to come :( I'm going to take a look over what you've posted though!

  10. Well I am glad your not going out~

    What is your online selling link? I thought you were on ETSY, but couldn't find anything.

    Have a Great Week end!!

    Huggs, Nancy

  11. whew... glad your just stepping out a bit more!
    Have a great sale, I bet you sell out!

  12. oh my. so much col stuff, and so many relieved comments.
    I see lots of things I would love, but afraid shipping would be prohibitive as I am in Oregon.

    Blessings and hope all changes go as you would like.


  13. I'm excited to hear about all the changes!

  14. Well hon, I'm so glad you're no leaving (I didn't think you were) and that you'll be blogging and selling and that you have ideas on how to work smarter and not harder, which will be less stressful on you! You sure have been unearthing some wonderful items from the abyss! Looking forward to hearing your new plans and seeing what you've got up your sleeve! Take care and have a great sale! Hugs, Leena

  15. I can't wait to hear about what is on the horizon for you Rosemary! I hope it is teaching classes.You are so talented in what you do.And I know so many would love to take classes to learn your techniques.

  16. So glad you will still be blogging. You are one of my favorite blogs to visit! Love your fabulous ideas. I know you'll do well what ever direction you go in. I love everything but am interesting in the crystals. How much are they and would you be interested in shipping them?

  17. I can't wait to here what is in the works!!! Hope your sale went well. Remember to always take it slow and get rest!!! Mother Hen right, LOL!


  18. Blessings on all your new endeavors.
    We all have to change with the times. And things have to move about. You have some wonderful things. I would love to have a couple of things you have, but right now I'm gearing up to put my large Christmas village up in our towns Train Depot. its taking all my loot...LOL,
