OPEN for Business

December 8th, 2017

After a few weeks of taking photos, making products, and getting things organized, my shop ‘Seeds & Sundries’ is finally OPEN!!! I spent yesterday working all-day-long getting things photographed, sewn, stamped, organized, and entered. My dining room table is showing the effects.

But, all the hard work has paid off, Seeds & Sundries is OPEN. Head on over and check it out. Your purchases support this blog and keep it ad-free. You’ll find all kind of things there: double gauze scarves, hand stamped note cards, my favorite garden marker & plant tags, lip balm, and so much more.

Check back often, I have lots of ideas for new products I’d love to make and add, but it will take me a while to get those planned and done.

Any products you’d like to see in the shop?

    The site looks great! Love the flat-rate shipping (free over $50). I look forward to receiving my order (the cat does, too).

      You don’t have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal. Confusing, no? :)

      PayPal allows you to checkout without an account. They may ask you to create an account after you pay, but you don’t have to.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
