I now have a shop on Etsy and although I have not had a chance to really spruce it up yet, I have had a few bites on pieces. Of course the problem with selling furniture becomes shipping. I have on each item written a line in the description that reads “Furniture is pick up only.”
I was contact by a women in Massachusetts that said she was interested in the china cabinet. Remember this one?
It has been biding it’s time, keeping my collectables nice and toasty just waiting for a permanent home.
I told her that I would do my research on freight shipping, which actually means passing the job onto my dear husband (DH). He got 4 quotes for me ranging from $300 – $900. That last one was FedEx Freight.
It took a few days to receive the quotes and in the meantime she contacted me a few more times to say that she was very, very interested. This morning I told her the lowest I could ship for is $300. FYI – the piece is listed as $550.
I guess now it’s just waiting to see if she still wants it. I did ask her if she was planning any trips down to DC!
She has the door open waiting for you, Kerri!
