Cyber Monday


Besides being a blogger and full time mom I help to support my family by selling on Etsy and EBay. I sell vintage finds and handmade items. My EBay store is stocked with a lot of goodies. My two favorite things up for sale right now are a Burberry jacket and a Michael Kors long puffer coat.


On this Cyber Monday support the moms out there selling online. If you are a mama who sells online please leave your link in the comments so that others can shop at your online stores.

The comfiest and softest sweater I’ve ever owned – $5.99
