Weekend Wonderment

First off, I want to thank all my guest bloggers that have blessed It's Simple Love with their grace and wisdom.  It has been an honor.  If you missed these guest posts visit them HERE.

I have been working vigorously to get my etsy shop up and running.  No, it's not up yet but it will be within the next couple weeks!  It is called Ande Mönster, meaning Spirit Design in Swedish, it is a Vintage and Vintage Inspired Clothing store.   There is so much that goes into opening your own shop(besides your heart and your soul), which I am sure many of you can relate too.  Above is one dress that will be up for grabs, on our beautiful model Lara.

On that note, any tips on starting my etsy?  

If you have an etsy, what's something I might have looked over or should anticipate?  
If you don't, what are some features you like about your favorite etsy shop? 
What is your favorite etsy shop? Or your own?
 If you don't know what etsy is, go HERE and fall in love with this online community.

This is what I will be doing this weekend.  
How about you?

Hi, congratulations on the shop opening! That sounds really exciting.

Hmm- who are my favorite sellers? Those who have products that are very pretty or have a small touch that is a bit unique. I searched through so many Etsy sellers when wedding planning!

I am a blogger buddy of Shari and glad I found your blog too! Hope to see you around blogland soon!

so exciting, i am looking forward to your own etsy shop. much luck and fortune. i do not own one, but love many. from what i've heard there are lots that have a unique and lovely way of shipping their orders with pretty packaging, i think that is sweet.

btw, i am enjoying your playlist while visiting and reading your blog.

Ahhh that's so exciting for me!! Seriously! I've never ever ever come across a blogger that even knew what coeur d' alene or spokane was, let alone pullman/moscow! I actually live in Moscow, so I definitely am very very well acquainted with Lewiston, Gennessee, Spokane, Potlatch, and every town within 80 miles :). Hmmm....I don't recognize the name Patten but more than likely, I have seen them around. I graduate next week and yes! Prom :) I'm posting all my pictures so soon.

Congrats, I love ETSY!! I don't have a shop there but I do have a friend who sells lovely coffee cozies and she did mention Etsy is a great community, they are very helpful, so feel free to ask questions, etc..you are already to a great start, the name to your shop. What ever you do, do it with passion!
