My Third Month

What isn’t working? Pretty much everything.

Yes, I can pretend I’m a success, fumbling for answers. Or I can admit to you my
failures, and try something else. Which would you prefer?

For some reason my abandoned cart data continues to show an average of five (5)
abandoned carts per day. That’s five possible sales I’m missing out on, per day.
There has to be a reason for that.


Musing with myself, my prices continue to be competitive, overall, with what I’m
finding, using eBay, Etsy, Google Shopping, and Google Images to find out all I
can about other’s products; their quality and condition, and prices, comparatively
speaking.

Realize that even now I offer free shipping and handling within the continental
U.S. No international shipping at this time. When you deduct those shipping and
handling costs from the final price of the product, you, the consumer, you’re
getting a great deal.

Right now I can only come to one real conclusion.

Is my store not letting you buy my products?

My next question would be: Why didn’t anyone say something?

New Pick! Cobalt Blue Miniature Wine Service for Four, Made in China

https://www.freewebstore.org/null2938/_Cobalt_Blue_Miniature_Wine_Service_for_Four/p4143519_17055008.aspx

Cobalt Blue Miniature Wine Service for Four, Made in China - $50 USD - Free
shipping (USPS) within the continental United States.

I don’t know if this is a vintage pick, but I do know it’s a rare pick. I did three
different image searches, three different months, and found a couple of items that
came close, but not an exact match. I’ll admit it was a tossup between a tea service
for four, or a wine service for four, and I let the warmed wine win. You can see
why. That plus, no sugar bowl or creamer.

Each cup is 1 and 7/16 inches tall, and fluted at the top to be 1 and 3/4 inches
wide. The tray is 6 and 3/4 inches wide, 5 and 1/8 long, and is just shy of 3/4 inch
tall, with about a 1/2 inch inner depth. The pot is 4 inches wide, 2 and 3/4 long,
and with lid, 3 inches high. What you see is what you get.



If you see something you like, it’s first come first served. I only have one of each.

New Pick! 2 Vintage Lavada Folding Child's TV Lap Trays

https://www.freewebstore.org/null2938/_2_Vintage_Lavada_Folding_Child_s_TV_Lap_Trays,_red___white_carousel_circus_motif/p4143519_17044656.aspx

2 Vintage Lavada folding child's tv lap trays red & white carousel circus motif -
$50 USD - Free shipping (USPS) within the continental United States.

On a scale from 1 to 10, these two trays are a solid 8 1/2! I will let the buyer clean
them up, so lets get down to the measurements. 12 and 3/4 inches tall, by 17 and
½ inches wide, and with the legs out, 6 inches high. These are from the late 50's or
early 60's, when it was okay to sit in front of the tv to eat, because I can remember
them from when I was a kid. Yeah, that dates me, but I cant complain. Nor will
you as the next proud owner.

New Pick! Vintage Singer Child’s Sewing Machine


https://www.freewebstore.org/null2938/_Early-sixties_Great_Britain_Vintage_Singer_Child_s_Sewing_Machine_22851/p4143519_17042746.aspx

Early-sixties Great Britain Vintage Singer Child’s Sewing Machine #22851- $45
USD - Free shipping (USPS) within the continental United States.

It works! Not that I know how to sew, however, what you see is what you get
(minus the fabric and thread). The body is 7 and 3/4 inches long, 4 and 3/8 inches
wide, and sits about 7 inches high with all the stuff sticking out of it. The spool is
on a screw somebody had inserted for that purpose, and I didn’t remove it. It is
fairly clean, and weighs in just shy of 4 lbs.

Sold!


That's right, it's gone!

I really didn't have anything to post until now, but Rips Picks had to leave my other selves alone, and my pen names are gaining ground. I have been promoting my products, and that will never stop, and I'll get more products up and running as soon as I can. I have a long list of things I'm doing, but nothing counts until they're done.

Anyway, that's it, for now.
