cff SATURDAY SHOPPING WEEK ONE | Simple and Serene Living


Saturday, September 11, 2021

I remember when Saturday was the big day we did our shopping. I'm not sure why, I guess it was just a thing. These days we jump online and shop 24 hours. 

On Wednesday I wrote a post on Social Security and why I rely on affiliate links and my Etsy shop to supplement my income.

In the few months since I became an influencer with both Amazon, where I have an Amazon storefront, and LTK, where I share my online favorites, I have been finding just how difficult it is to get them going. 

I kind of jumped into the middle of the pie instead of carving out pieces when I changed my blog theme, applied to Amazon, and then immediately applied to LTK after Amazon accepted me. 

I was told it would take months to get accepted into LTK but imagine my surprise when I heard back the very next day. After the initial excitement, I realized that I had no idea what I was doing, and I mean no idea. 

Like most things I do though, I just started learning it all, and now that it has been a few months and I sort of know what I am doing I need to start capitalizing on it all. 

With that in mind, I am starting this new Saturday Shopping series to share some of my favorite finds.

Etsy Shop

I opened my Etsy vintage shop when Etsy was in its infant stages. Over the years I have watched it grow, and while it was growing I have worked it, not worked it, and worked it some more. Well, you get the picture. 

I am definitely in the working it mode now because I love vintage and antiques and love passing them on to you.

My knowledge has come from a lifetime of studying and collecting vintage and antiques. 

**Please note that the majority of my items include free shipping and the rest are free shipping eligible.**

Some exciting news:

Over the next week, I will be adding vintage printables to my shop. I have a large collection of vintage and antique prints and maps and have decided to digitalize them to make them more readily available. Stay tuned. 

Amazon Fall Decor Finds

Neutral fall decor is very popular this year and Amazon has an abundance of it. I think I might have fallen in love with every one of these things.

Wayfair Get Cozy For Fall

It's that time of year when our thoughts turn to cooler weather and getting cozy.

Does shopping make you as hungry as it does me? Time to put my feet up, sip on a cup of tea, and treat myself to a gluten-free cookie.

Thanks for shopping with me. You all are the best.

  4. So many great goodies! The Spode Woodland dishes have been on my china bucket list forever. Love that you shared them here. Hope you have the best weekend, CoCo

  5. I'm having trouble pulling everything out of my closets and rearranging them so I can at least see what I have. I kind of got off the track with "bring something in, take something out." But I love to shop online!

  6. Wishing you good luck with your shopping ventures. I'll be checking out your Saturday Shopping posts, for sure!

  7. Lots of fun finds, Laura. You'd make an excellent personal shopper. I love everything you shared...and I really, really love that ironstone pitcher in your shop. What a beauty...
