The End is Near

Just one more week and Sweet Repeats will be closed.  Once I made the decision everything fell into place and I was assured it was the right decision.   Over the past two years I have worked very hard sometimes 7 days a week but in this economy it just was not enough.   So now I'll be home with my computer, digital camera, costume jewelry, dog, cats and husband.   Not sure how that last one's gonna work out.   But he does have 2 boats to work on so I think it will be ok.

Last week  I brought home all the necklaces I had amassed over the past two years.   My bag was so heavy I had to weight it out of curiousity.  It weighed 25 pounds.   Even though I bought all this jewelry it has been fun going through it and rediscovering it.   I've been posting lots on eBay.

Probably won't be writing much for the next 2 weeks.   Just put this lot of beads on ebay!

New find

So I'm closing the store and that has kept too busy to write lately.   I just have to share a find from a quick trip to a yard sale yesterday.   A beautiful pin and clip earrings signed GARNE.  It is in perfect condition and I've already posted it on eBay.  Apparently it is rare to find GARNE items according the little research I did yesterday so I feel very lucky!!!

Saying Goodbye

I've neglected my blog lately as life has gotten kind of crazy.   I have decided to close Sweet Repeats so most of my energy has been consumed by making that happen.   It was very sad at first but then it seemed like a burden has been lifted.    For the past two years every waking and it seems like sleeping moment has been about Sweet Repeats.   But when one door closes as they say, another opens.   I have found new success in eBay selling.   I feel challenged every day to find the items that will intrigue and lure buyers.   And more importantly, I can do it from home in my pajamas which is becoming more and more attractive to me these days.  Roy is having minor surgery tomorrow and is facing major knee replacement surgery after the first of the year.   I need to be home to help him and support him through this.  So after 12/1 I'll have more time to search for interesting and unique costume jewelry.   Look for more postings then.
