Last week we were contacted by a new-ish site, now a sponsor, called “Stash Slash”. (Update: Site has since closed) The site is simple. You can go there to buy de-stash items, much of it vintage and some even antique, and/or you can use the site to list your own de-stashes. What’s really REALLY simple about it is that it’s not an auction, and there aren’t individual item fees for selling. As a seller, you pay one fee and you’re good to go for a year. As an eBay seller a time or two, I like that a seller doesn’t have to calculate a whole bunch of individual fees to figure out the bottom line. And as a buyer, I find it a whole lot easier to browse. It’s all crafty and it’s all clearly priced– no “auction” versus “buy it now” and issues with watching for when it closes. I’ve enjoyed watching the market change daily. And I just snagged a 1947 reprint of a 1936 dressmaking book.
Relatedly, the site got me looking around at what I might de-stash. Immediately I thought about this sewing kit that I found last summer. I’ve taken a few notions from it, but there’s plenty of vintage goodness left that I’ve not put to use, and feel that it’s time to pass it on to a good home.
