I lived in South Florida for 14 years, had a job with a company for about 6 before the owners finally had to shut the company down – due to the two of them embezzling funds and gambling away their futures and that of their 30 odd employees.
My husband also lost his job with a company that was downsizing. We had to move to a family home here in Georgia but the job market absolutely stinks. I can’t find any work – not just office work but ANY work.
So my day job is making and selling jewelry on Etsy. I actually make enough to pay our bills and other people have been asking advice since my third month with FreeHippie (one of the shops). Sooo many people asked that I wrote an article. That article was featured in Etsy’s newsletter that week and I realized that I really had information that could help others. So I wrote a book about how I run my shop.
Beautifully Done PDF on FreeHippie.Etsy.Com $5.99 It’s way more aesthetically pleasing and easier on the eye than the Kindle or Nook versions and it costs the same price!
However, while the book pays for our least expensive reoccurring bill, I still have to run my shops, lol. If you’re interested you can check out the shop below.
This is the main store that I spend my time on. It’s mostly hippie jewelry, hats and accessories – but not the same hemp pieces that you’ve been seeing since the 60’s! Bohemian and gypsy flair, some vintage and repurposed pieces. I love my little shop. Hats, dreadlock accessories, and little funky items too!
