Posts Tagged ‘Skull Nutcracker’

I just listed a Skull Nutcracker on Etsy.  It is the second of Brandon’s new Skull design and it is numbered and signed by Brandon.    The Skull Nutcracker turned out beautifully.  Here are a couple pictures of it…

If you want to see a few more pictures check out the Etsy listing.

We are building our Etsy Store and will be listing our original items on Etsy as much as possible.  The fees are much lower on Etsy (3.9%)  than Ebay (9%).   Ebay’s fees are almost laughable anymore.  My least favorite is the “Final Value Fee on Shipping”.  I haven’t yet figured out why they are putting a fee on my shipping costs when they are not providing me with any real shipping services.  I have read  they began adding this fee because buyers love the Free Shipping option and this way more sellers would offer free shipping.  However, free shipping isn’t really a feasible option when shipping overseas and you charge actual shipping to the winning bidder.  Shipping is already a big enough expense and I just think it is greedy and wrong for Ebay to be adding to the millions they make by adding this ridiculous fee.

Our Halloween Decorations

   Posted by: admin    in Figural Nutcracker

It’s time to start thinking about taking down the Halloween decorations.  I thought I would post some pictures of our Halloween decor.  So here they are:

On our hearth is one of my favorite pieces, Gus, a Disney Hitch Hiker Ghost.

I decorate our kitchen tree for just about every holiday.  I enjoy having a “Holiday” tree.  It makes everything more festive and gives me a place to display some of the items we create.

So that’s just some of our Halloween decorations.  We just acquired more for next year and we’re already making plans for next year.

Update:  The Skull Nutcracker sold and on the next post I will share with you the history of Brandon carving nutcrackers and also exciting news about the Skull Nutcracker.

Until next time, Melissa
