how about spring? it's been fun listing some new lilly pulitzer on new little store in the cyber world!
 it feels great to put on some fun summer merchandise!  while we were away, we had some cape cod moments.....real summer moments!  we may not have had summer weather, but we sure saw signs of summer in the works!  boats on blocks being worked on and painted....

at the sailing club, all of the boats were out and it's time for the season sign ups.....

the ice cream store opened....

and the stores were getting new arrivals to stock the stores........the stores taking applications!  it's great to see a summer place prepare for the our trees, waiting to burst with new leaves!  ahhhh, that's life!  gotta love it!

i love getting ready for spring and summer on e-bay too! it's been tricky keeping on top of the sales while we were away!  thankfully, i am able to keep in touch with my customers by e-mail....that's my most valuable tool...customer service!  i can mail from anywhere to anywhere....but, i need to have that customer connection.  it's one of those old saks fifth avenue

and brooks brothers 
traditions that i've continued throughout my sales or in buying.....whether clothing or mortgage sales! i just have to make sure we don't get our wires crossed!
that's what matters to me.  i was not the greatest e-bay buyer but i know if i were to buy today on e-bay, i would definitely need to feel that the seller was on top of things!

biff's and the kids are much more e-bay 
shopping savvy than i have been in the past.  they've really helped me to think like a buyer!  doesn't that sound ridiculous?  me, needing help to think like a buyer? NEVER!  i think of myself as a professional shopper....a polite term for shopaholic!
how on earth could i ever have so much to sell?  we have a wide variety of shopping issues in the family.  e-bay has come to my rescue!   i love knowing that so many of my shopping finds and antique hunting joys can move on to others! 

 i love to donate too!  i've always had the idea, that in the big scheme of things in life.....what you put out there, you'll get back!
"what goes around, comes around!"  just the idea of giving to others....when we are so blessed....makes me enjoy the giving!

although, i'm a little concerned about why we had the"#%*@" in the basement...and the flood....i hope i haven't given that out!
if i have, i'm sorry.....if i've truly given and have recieved what we got in return, i'm definitely going to h-e-double toothpicks!
