SOTW -- Vintageday

Richelieu Signed Big Red Maltese Cross Pin Brooch Vintage
The Etsy Twitter Team would like to introduce Wendy Kelly of Vintageday, our Shop of the Week! Wendy's shop is stocked with over 400 items of beautiful vintage jewelry! People are drawn to Wendy's vintage pieces because of the lovely craftsmanship and their uniqueness. An added plus: vintage is the ultimate in recycling and being green!

Wendy is very knowledgeable about her pieces. While she has had an appreciation for vintage jewelry and collected it for some time, she has discovered a great resource in JewelRing, a yahoo group specializing in vintage jewelry. All the men and women that belong to it have been very helpful about sharing important facets of costume jewelry. Besides, as Wendy puts it, "I am vintage, so i know what I sell!" And she packages like it's special, too; every piece in a gift box and bubble wrap. She happily ships internationally, too!

Wendy credits Auction Sellers Motivators mentors for "teaching me the ins and outs about selling on line". Their website states they are "a cooperative community of online sellers working to improve their businesses. Whether you sell on eBay, Amazon, Etsy, your own web site or any number of other venues, we're your source for top quality advice! We welcome everyone from those just starting out to seasoned, online professionals." ~ http://www.auctionsellersmotivators.com

To help with her Twitter use, Wendy recommends Hootsuite or TweetDeck software because they make scheduling tweets easy. This can help maintain your Twitter presence throughout the day (and night) and space out your shop links. Wendy also likes to post tweets to her Tumblr account.

Wendy has a musical side...AND a sense of humor: her favorite artist? "Bruce Springsteen. {Wendy is a Jersey girl} I grew up on Bruce. Didn't he write Born to Run for me"?

That could also explain her dream migration habits: "I would love to be able to divide my time between Florida during the cold {New Jersey} winters, Spring and Fall in New Jersey. I would love to have a beach house in Cape Cod for the Summer...I would get the best" of all the seasons!
