Heading to Maine

Well, it's that time again. Time to go back to Maine to relieve my sisters and take care of my mom for three weeks. I've been really trying to get my Etsy shop up and running and I don't want to put an away message up so my daughter, Hillary, is holding down the fort for me. I don't think she will have much to do because sales have been way down. The economy is so bad and people are really being serious about how they spend their money. I can't blame them, I'm doing the same thing. I see lots and lots of things I would like to purchase, but I'm holding back until somebody figures out what is going on.

In the meantime, I'm going home and enjoying the cool weather. The leaves will have probably already turned and fallen off for the most part but the California weather has been brutal here. It is supposed to be cooling down. Maybe by the time I get back things will have cooled down weatherwise and heated up on Etsy.

Good luck to all my fellow shop owners. Hang in there ~ better days are always ahead.

Hope you can enjoy your time in Maine. You're doing a great thing by taking care of your mom. Your bags are really nice! Maybe your daughter will surprise you with a few sales while your gone ~
