Peace, love, and Cornbread

Hello? Anyone still out there?

Man! It's been a while since I've logged in. My computer kept crashing, and I found out there were several viruses on it. The guy who fixed it said that there are some viruses disguised as Adobe, Flash, and Javascript update prompts. Greeeeat. I always update those things. Guess I'll have to be more careful next time.

Remember all of my second-hand finds I nerded out over a couple of weeks ago? I found moreeee. Turns out I have a slight obsession with the thrift store, and it seems relieve stress for me. I don't want to end up on Hoarders: Buried Alive and have to be treated for compulsive shopping, but I don't think that's going to happen. I've actually set up my own little online shop where I can sell my thrift store finds for some extra cash. College girl needs textbooks/gas monies.

It's always been a secret wish of mine to buy and sell vintage/unique items. I had told myself for so long that I couldn't make it a reality because I don't know enough about what sells and what doesn't. I'm really hard on myself. Like, brutal. I mentally flog my self-esteem on occasion. Why? Probably the combination of being female and a chronic worrier...and living at home through college... But now, after a few sales and some awesome finds, I'm beginning to gain a little confidence in myself.

And this is the part of the post where I am going to shamelessly promote my listings.
My booth on Bonanza: http://www.bonanza.com/booths/WideEyedFinds
Yardsellr page: http://yardsellr.com/yardsale/Dani-Beach-258876

I have pretty much the same items on both pages, but Yardsellr is a little easier to use, so I have that set up as an alternative. If you wanna be super fantastic and help me promote, let me know and I'll find/make a badge. Or, a simple tweet or mention in a blog post would totally work :)

You know how I used to sign off my posts with "Peace, love, and hugs,"? My boyfriend kept teasing me about it by saying it before one of us left, but he would mix it up and say, "Peace, love, and flying pigs.. or whatever!" Then he got me a shirt that says, "Peace, love, and cornbread" in bright colors (we are in the deep south, remember). I thought it was pretty cute, but I dunno, maybe you had to be there.

Tomorrow, I'm going to ride horses and to an antique shop in an itty bitty town about an hour away. What have you guys been up to this summer?

Peace, love, and cornbread,


Dani

I went to Islamabad this summer. And I enjoyed it.
