The bell has a really nice chime and is hanging on elasticized string. If you like color, buttons, whimsey, soothing old fashioned chimes and repurposed items, this is the wind chime for you.

1-Why did you choose to sell on Etsy/ and do you sell anywhere else?
I chose Etsy to let my creative side escape (three children, husband, home, etc.. need something to keep me kind of sane). I am relatively new to this site, but have and do continue to sell on ebay. I find etsy a relaxed and pleasant way to sell, especially for handmade items although there is definetly a market for vintage as well which is nice because of the green factor.

2- What is your fave thing to buy on Etsy (whether it be supplies or gifts etc.)
Gifts seem to be what I have been buying. I purchased a lovely vintage ring for my daughter, I even purchased my own mothers day gift! (with the input of my family of course) It is very pretty by the way and would order again from any of the sellers I have dealt with so far.

3-What is your current fave product(not in your store) under 20$?
I like it all! It would be very hard to pick one certain thing but if you look in my
favorites I have many items under $20. Vintage sewing, millinery, vintage jewelry, new handmade clothing and jewelry, the list goes on and on. So many things, so little time, sigh....

4- Any advice for new sellers?
I am pretty new to etsy but as mentioned have been selling on ebay since 2001. Communication with buyers is important, especially living in Canada and shipping taking longer than within the USA, letting people know this helps. The nature of vintage and antique means some wear usually. Each person has their own system of grading condition which can be subjective. Good pictures and details are important.

5-And a favorite quote?
There are many great quotes and words to live by, not sure of the exact phrasing or who quoted it but the saying of doing the right thing even when no one is watching comes to mind first.
