Clearing out taking over from crafting

It was my aim while I was off this week to get out my craft goodies again and make some cards. But, first of all need to clear out some of my books from the utility dumping ground - hopefully making a bit more space for my craft supplies, and a bit of cash as well.

I usually use www.greenmetropolis.com for selling my books, which goes through phases of success, but does take a long time to sell more than 1 or 2 books at a time. So am going to try a couple of other places. Have started up my www.priceminister.co.uk shop so we'll see how that goes. Less commission to pay than Amazon but obviously fewer customers, but we'll see. Then I shall start clearing out some of my unwanted clothes as well - cheaper to post, and hopefully less hassle and quicker to sell than through the second hand clothes shop (although probably less money earned).

Maybe, when I've got a bit more time I shall do some more jewellery and see if I can sell any of that. A bit of a scary prospect, especially as there's now a lot of competition out there. We'll see if I have the guts, otherwise will start small and try and do a jewellery party - maybe get my mum to do one with her friends as they're more likely to buy jewellery than my friends who all have young children and therefore don't really wear or buy much.
