what I could sell on Etsy

You know.
Angela? Over at Fluid Pudding?
Did a whole bravo Etsy post.
And I'm totally into the Etsy thing.
Really. I am.
Buying from humans rather than faceless corporations, doing something good for the world of economy, giving back - all that. I'm down with it.
And you know, if you read me, that I have THE POTENTIAL to be crafty but that I am not INNATELY CRAFTY.
But, as I support the whole Etsy concept, I believe I could have an Etsy shop of my own. What would I sell I hear you wondering...SERVICES.

1. I will clean out your closet. I will assess your wardrobe and determine which pieces you are missing and suggest places to purchase said objects whilst keeping your budget in mind. I am perfectly capable of sending you to Target or Nordstrom for the perfect white shirt or black pumps.

2. I will help you choose an automobile based on your needs and budget.

3. I can rearrange your crappe making your mantle/shelves/foyer table as picturesque as a magazine layout highlighting anything from stark minimalism to baroque schmancy multihued and textured melange.

4. I will detail your filthy vehicle.

5. I will offer advice on anything from meals to relationships.

I have provided several of these services both free of charge and for fees up till now. I think it's time I took my show on the road.
As it were.

I would love to be your first customer. I especially need a #1 and a #3. I can pay you in biscotti.
Tracy said…
When can you start? I need all those services.
Badger said…
I would be willing to take you up on #4.

What kind of wine is doing the talking? My outlaws always refer to wine as "loud mouth soup." Are you being loud??
Anyway... you've been tagged. Check it out on today's post.

#1. You're hired.
jenny said…
Three and Four. Especially four. How can you get all those vent things clean without losing your mind?
Shelly Kang said…
I desperately need #1 and could use a good dose of #3. I'd pay you in hand dyed sock yarn and/or hand knit items. When can you come to Minneapolis?

get that cute little butt over here to the other side of north america. bring your oldest, middlest and youngest too...we could have a jolly old west coast time.

Yeah - #1 for me too. Except we could just start from scratch because I own NOTHING worth keeping. If Stacey and Clinton came to visit me they'd toss every single thing I own into the trash. Possibly they'd let me keep a few sweaters and business suits - but other than that - I'm a blank freaking slate. So you'd just have to build a wardrobe for me.
Caset said…
if they let you sell baked goods and custom mittens, you'd think they'd let you sell services.

#1 is always necessary here and #2 may become so in the coming year. though i don't know that grad student with no money is exactly the best customer for either service....

One, three, and four. Please. I bet my car floor would drive you crazy, though. There are little pine needles stuck in the carpet fiber.

I know that it is not on the list but I would hire you for 'Cheese Management'. The whole Cheese Guru thing.

sign me up for #1, 3, 4 and 5. i can pay you in wine and dog fur.
marian said…
How about "I will ghost-write your blog for you while you are on vacation or when you are coming up dry because I am NEVER without ideas."
Suse said…
I need you right now. For numbers 1 to 5.

And you know how I'll pay you, don't you, darling?
Sinda said…
Yes, yes, yes and yes - when can you start? I've give you food, lodging, and endless admiration, will that work?
Who She She said…
I'm in desperate need of #1 and #4. I will pay travel expenses. Help!

I think you should also add that you're an excellent gift-picker-outer.
Keetha said…
Bird, sign me up! I'm all on board with the decorating input, the car detailing, and just as soon as I get a romantic relationship, I'd love to come to you for advice.

This is genius.
Kim said…
So why aren't you living in LA earning a fortune?
catsteevens said…
Seeing that #4 is in popular demand, I can say with all honesty, I need everything EXCEPT #4.
might I add...? said…
I actually read this post within a few days of you posting it, and I got *really* excited. I bet you would be great at all of these things, and I definitely need at least 3 of these services. Brilliant!

Let me know when your Etsy shop opens!
