I found some old ads tucked into in my grandmother's cookbook, and thought, "This would make a hilarous card" and then it snowballed from there.

I love having my own store that I can run while in my pajamas, drinking coffee.

The vintage graphics I use are copies of all the originals I own, not reproductions, and each piece includes at least one original graphic.

-What advice do you have for other folks selling or buying on Etsy?
It takes a little time to get it going, but it's worth doing!
