I'm a stay at home mom and wife with a passion for family, creating and photography. I'm a little bit quirky and a little bit odd, but that's what makes me...well me. I'm a jack of all trades.

Working in the Closet

I've been busy getting posting done on eBay. Besides a crazed photographer and new to the blog world, another major love of my is thrifting. I have found a way to marry need for retail therapy with a way to make a little cash. A Sage Closet started as a way to rid myself of Sage's old clothes, but they went well so I began to expand to girls. I've always shopped second hand for Sage. It's my way of being green. There are so many wonderful designer clothes that still have plenty of life left in them, sitting on racks not being appreciated. I love digging through racks of clothes I have found some gorgeous pieces. Of course I always think about how the piece would photograph. I do all the digging for you. The worse part is the laundering after I get them home. Stain checks, spot removals, wash, line dry (when possible) and iron. I like to make sure my customers get fresh clothes. You can browse my photos of my son and get an idea of my style. Think of it as a sneak peek of future merchandise.

This month eBay is running a special beside the 100 $.99 free items they are giving another 100 pieces free at any price. So I'm trying to push to get some of my fall jackets and winter wear posted. Also Buckeye season is almost here. I see script Ohio in the clouds. So I a large collection of Buckeye wear to put out. So I've been busy in the Closet today. Check out my auctions at.

On that same line it's time to change A Sage's Profile photo. So I thought that I would use that for Pixel Perfects Before and After. Nothing special, I just can't leave a blog without a photo.

Sorry everyone it is late tonight, I will check everyone out tomorrow after I pick up the hubby from the airport. I need to get the internet on my phone so I can keep up with everything.

Very cool shot - do you find that these edited photos better sell the items?

I don't use edited photos to sell individual items. I try to keep those as true to the item as possible. I use these for profile photos and ads.

love the edit, gives that 2nd hand t a new life :) i've considered setting on ebay, but i'm finding my things are too 'old fashioned' by the time i've finished with them. give and it will be given unto you seems to work very well for us.
