OK tonight I decided to take a few pictures of some of the Goodwill stuff I have been picking up. Everything you see here was under $20.00 total....I always seem to spend 4 dollars and change everytime I go. That big Angel Blowing the Horn was $1.99 plus 50% 0ff. She was a great find. The picture of the Girl is very old. It looks like its mounted on a 1/4" board. The edges are tattered I think I am going to glue them down and let that be it. I paid $2.99 for it. I think she looks Prim.
Anyway now I have to get busy with the makeovers. I hope they look as good as yalls!

Whipped Up Two More!

Playtime is over now I have to get busy designing my new Freebie Selection for Feb. For those of you who dont know about it my Freebie Category its on my website Folk Art From The Harbor Whenever you shop my site and spend $30.00 or more on stencils you get to go into my Freebies and treat yourself to one stencil of your choice absolutely FREE

I change out the Freebies every month with Brand New Designs and if you are on my mailing list I send out an email with the previews. After I swap out the old ones they become available for sale. I always try to have a nice selection of 10 or 12 to choose from.

Anywho back to my Old Ads here are the 2 I designed last night. Hugs BeCca

A Couple Of New Designs To Share With Yall

I am still on the Old Ad kick....actually I have quite a few still bouncin back and forth in my head but for now I have these 2 new ones I cooked up this evening. I hope yall like em! Each one measures approx 10" x 24" made from 5 mil clear mylar available for purchase at Folk Art From The Harbor for $12.99 each.

OH Ebay Here We Go Again

They are famous for raising rates arent they? I know how many sellers they have already ran off...Good Grief they really know how to stick it to us!
A Basic Store which I have right now is $15.95 a month plus I have around 1500 listings which cost 3 cents each and renew every month...then I have about 25 live listings which run 35 cents each...sound so cheap right? Well No after they get the ending fees I sometimes pay ebay 400.00 plus dollars a month and that is with my Good Seller Status 20 % discount.
So what are they up to now? They want to make the Basic Store so expensive that we are forced into the $49.95 a month's how they are doing it.......Basic Store still $15.95 a month but all listings cost 20 cents each making this store with around 1500 listings plus ending fees will cost well over $500.00 a month Please note this is not with 1500 sales only an average amount of sales based on the last 12 months. Ebay does everything in their favor....WOW.... so heres what they want us to do....take the $49.95 a month store and all listings in that store cost 5 cents each.....with everything else off the table thats TRIPLE store cost and 40% more listing fee.....SO..........
I had to increase my 6" x 24" stencil from $5.99 to $7.99 ...TRUST me this not making me rich, had I kept them at $5.99 I might as well pay people to buy them. And if you are an ebay buyer I want you to know you can always shop my website
Folk Art From The Harbor and still find my 6 x 24's for $5.99 each.

They added so much detail. Even plain things were all fancied up in their ads. I love designing my own old time ads into stencils. Sometimes I have to think about it for a long time and sometimes its just there. I Love this Baby Buggy.
You know how some people display Game Boards ? I keep seeing a wall of a mixture of Old Game Boards and Old Ads ...LOL...I reckon I have eaten at one too many Cracker Barrels or Country BBQs!
Anyways I made this one a nice big 12 x 24 ~ 5 mil clear mylar available for purchase at
