Garage Sale and Giveaway!


I use to sell these plaques at craft shows but I have now decided to take a break and no longer need a truck load full of them hanging around the house. I use to store them in the cottage but now I am ready to move in and want the space.

I was wondering what in the world to do with this many ...


Can yall think of a way to unload so many of these darlings?


I use to sell them for 16.00 a piece but Im ready to get my sale on!



Would any of you be interested in one? Maybe two? Maybe all of them for an awesome price?




I'm ready to move into the cottage and need every inch of space so it would be great to find a home for these lil darlings.



Im taking any suggestions you may have...any offers too!



Now for those of you who leave a comment I will put your name in a hat for a free one!



Yipee! One down and many to go!



So leave me a comment and enter.



Leave me a good suggestion on how to sell these babies and you could win one!


So I will be here waiting on a good idea...



Dreaming of all the space I will once again have...


Good luck!



The plaques are 12x12 and hang from a satin ribbon...








Thanks for your help!

  1. Hey Susie,

  2. Hey Susie, why don't you do like the nester did and have a sale in your Etsy shop, announcing the date and time that the sale will start. She sold 100 tassels in record time.

    I LOVE the bird nest in your last photo!

    ReplyDelete
  3. You could donate or sell (for an inexpensive price) to a loving couple looking for items to raffle/silent auction to finish paying for their adoption. :)

  4. Would you consider selling the damask/ nest in the second photo for $12? Pretty please.;) I have a sweet little spot in my nest for it... If not, I completely understand and will patiently wait until the sale begins, Sweets! Lori

  5. I'm totally crushing on the nest plaques.....I think putting them on etsy is a great idea too.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love the bird's nest one in the
    2nd photo and also the fleur de lys.

    I think taht you should list them on your esty shop under sale items.

  7. Oh I love those! (especially the Me and My House one!) They are beautiful :).

    Maybe it would help to sell them if you offer one for a certain price...but if they buy 2...it's a few dollars cheaper. :) That way, people are more inclined to buy 2 at once....thus selling them quicker! :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love the As For Me and My House one. Okay, I love more than that, but I was trying not to be greedy.
    Suggestions? I don't have anything original or not already mentioned.

  9. First time here and I see these! Very beautiful! I'm particularly in love with the Rooster :wink

    Super Sale on your Etsy! Combine a few ideas here, you are surely to "unload" them all!

    Good luck!

  18. Hi Susie ~

    Your plaques are great! I would be interested in purchasing a couple, in particular the nest and the fleur de lis with damask background. Please let me know if you decide to sell on Etsy! Did you make all of them! WOW! So talented, and a very busy gal!

  26. Hey Susie! I think putting them on sale on Etsy is a great idea or you could take them all to your next craft show and mark them on clearance. Good luck! They are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, I will buy the black damask and white ribbon. It has the fancy fleur de lis on it and now words. It is the ninth one down in your listing of photos. Seriously!

    Please email me at JoLW35@yahoo.com with the total.

  30. ETSY!!! :) They are SOOOOOO cute! I know I would buy one!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love these! Keep us posted as to when the sale begins. I see a few that I really, really like!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love them. Now I have a new craft I will have to try to make. Have you done a tutorial?

    I agree - a craft show would be a great way to get these moving.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OK you could have a yard sale for $3.00 each and then reason with yourself that you are just needing to get rid of them OR you could have like a deptartment store has at the end of season clearance sale say EVERYTHING IN STORE 50% OFF for a limited time only OR Buy 1 GET 1 FREE Exclusions apply.(HaHa). Just put in your ETSY shop for a reduced amount they will go like hot cakes I hope I just win one. Hope you like my tidbits.

    ReplyDelete
  34. These are beautiful!!! Have a craft/yardsale at your home why not?? Looks like you put alot of time into these...

  36. Susie - These are so cute! Put them on Etsy and you won't have a problem selling them!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I say list them at a bargain price on etsy... I would buy one of the plaques with the nest or the rooster... I LOVE it and it would look really cute hanging in my kitchen:) Just be sure to let us know!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh ok...so clearly I didn't scroll through everyone's comments before posting mine and several people have already suggested Etsy...how about Ebay or have a yard sale?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love them all....especially the nest ones. If you don't want to list them on Etsy, I think a yard sale is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Put them in your etsy unless that's a hassle to list or just sell them on your blog. I like the fleurs and the rooster ones best!

  41. cute plaques.
    p.s. i added you on my blog...did you not get my email yesterday?

    ReplyDelete
  42. From a fellow Louisianian, I'm loving the Fleur de lis ones! Is there a local craft fair coming up any time soon where you could sell them? I know in my little town we have one every fall.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the "as for me and my house".... You could sell them on your etsy for a discounted price...maybe even do a BOGO "buy one get one free", if you still had some leftover you could try listing them on craiglist. GOOD LUCK!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I agree with an etsy sale combined with a deal when someone buys multiples. And, maybe have some of your blogging buddies post that you are having a sale. Very cute stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You are just TOO TOO talented!! I love all your things.... I was thinking the etsy too so .. Are you coming to Canton Flea Market this year? Hope so

    ReplyDelete
  46. List them on your Etsy so those of us who would never get to see them at one of your shows would have a chance to purchase one, or two, or three!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I agree - an etsy sale!

    They are awesome!
    Excited for your move to the cottage!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love these! You should definitely sell them on etsy...I saw at least 4 I would buy right now~

    ReplyDelete
  50. I say have a cool sale in your etsy shop! I know that I would love to buy a few!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I see several that I love. Roosters, fleur de lis, nests, all the favorites are covered! An etsy clearance sale would be a good way to keep it organized, cause you know there might be some wrestling if too many want the same one. Keep us posted!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Okay, okay, okay....

    I'll buy the fleur de lis on damask background...stop twisting my arm already.

    I would definitely sell them on your Etsy site.

    ReplyDelete
  53. SUPER CUTE! Running a sale on etsy would surely give you more space in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ditto on what everyone else said! I'd love the nest.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Susie, These are wonderful!!! You could list them on Etsy or create an additional blog and list them as posts...create a buy-it-now button on Paypal for each one listing it with a name or number....then tag each plaque with it's # to keep your inventory straight. Just look for the merchant services tag to create a button~ Those nest plaques are calling me!!!! xxoo, Dawn

    ReplyDelete
  56. Take them to a little home boutique and see if they would like to buy the whole lot of them wholesale. They could then have the headache of getting rid of every last one and you can just enjoy the money and cottage. They are really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love them all, but my fave is the As for me and my house one. Love that!
    Try a local boutique to see if they would take them off your hands. I am sure they would sell. LOL, I will gladly take the one with the scripture verse off your hands. email me.

  58. I see a couple that I would lovefor my house.

  60. Well, shoot fire! I want one too!! I love the black background and the nest or the fleur-de-lis! Way too cute! I'm with the other gals...do a big sale on your etsy shop...just send me one first!! Heehee!!
    Hugs!

  62. You have some great advice, already, Susie. However, I do love those nests and wouldn't mind having a couple of them, should you decide to sell!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Those are very cute! I would love to see them in etsy!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh, I would love to have one for the girls playroom!! The Thank Heaven For Little girls! For sure. I say go with the Etsy sale!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Susie all the ideas are great! Our church has yard sales to raise money to send our kids to camp maybe find a church or group looking to raise money and donate a few to them. and sale the rest on etsy Hope you find a great idea there all so wonderful:)

    ReplyDelete
  66. These are soooo cute! With the Fall season approaching, why not set up a table at a fall festival, held locally, and sell them? You could offer discounts for those that purchase more than 1 so you can get rid of them faster. People are looking for deals right now and will soon be thinking of Christmas gifts. Any left-overs, you could sell on Etsy or Ebay too. Sometimes, churches have sales going on too. You could donate some to them for their benefit. You would feel good about that then. Whatever you could sell WITHOUT having to ship would be the quickest and easiest solution. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  67. How cute are those??? I love them! How bout a Christmas Bazaar sale or something. Do like 2 for $15, etc. to get rid of them quick. Cute Christmas gifts, teacher gifts, etc. Etsy??
    And I hope I win a freebie one!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think you should put them in your etsy shop. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas!! I've become a bienvenue junkie..

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, you must list them on etsy! Your space should be free and clear in no time. They are quite cute...where have they been hiding all of this time you clever gal????

    ReplyDelete
  70. Morning Susie,

    Those are absolutely ADORABLE!!! I have sent you an e-mail about one.

    ReplyDelete
  71. If I had any extra $ I would buy a bunch! I like nests and pretty flowers!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Etsy shop is the answer. I love them!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I say throw them up on Etsy. They'll probably go quick and you'll make a little money to boot. Hope I win one!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I would love to win one,, those are too cute.. Maybe you could list them on craigslist??

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh, I would love a nest or a fleur de lis. It looks like your commentors may be the key!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. these are so great...etsy is definitely the way to go

    ReplyDelete
  77. You are SO talented! I love them all.

    Hoping I win. :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love the fleur de lis with the damask surround. I was wondering if you were going to do anymore of the keyboard plaques? I have never ordered anything from Etsy and don't know how to. How much were they?

    ReplyDelete
  79. If you lived in Texas you could sell them in Canton (at a HUGE flea market) or at this sweet shop in Arlington called The Brownstone. Otherwise, Etsy is GREAT!

    These plaques are beautifully done - you're very talented!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Love the nest one in the last pic or the rooster with the black and white check - hey, who am I kidding? I love them all!

    ReplyDelete
  81. How much are the Fleur De Lis ones? You know us Louisiana girls love our Fleur De Lis'. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thought about adding them to your Etsy shop?

    ReplyDelete
  83. I wish that I could think of someplace fantastic for you to sell them. There is Esty but I also think perhaps a local craft shop or even better a consignment store. I see like this all the time and they are purchased quite quickly. I would purchase one if I saw it in a store like that. I hope to win one!

    Good Luck!

  84. I'd love to win a fleur de lis...it would go great in my new crafty area. :)

    I definitely give the two thumbs up for the Etsy sale idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Etsy is the way to go and I see you are doing that! Ebay is a pain and craigslist...well not that great! Etsy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Beautiful work! It looks like you've sold a lot already. :) I can't wait to see your newly freed up space!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I agree a BIG blowout sale, on Etsy or even here on your blog.

    I love them and I hope I win one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. I Love the nest with the gold bow. I agree with the others. I think you should put them on etsy also. Have a blessed day!

    ReplyDelete
  89. i was totally going to say etsy {either that or just guve them all to me! ;)} and just saw that's what you decided. sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  90. You could save a few and use them for c-mas gifts. Unless your friends and family already have one from you! ha! :)

    I bet you are so excited about your little cottage! I'm green!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Love these! I'd love to win one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Christmas is right around the corner; do you have any friends or family that you could gift them to? What about one of the kiddos teachers? I bet they would love one. You could also open a sale on your blog. One of the blog I follow had a garage sale on her blog and sold tons of items in no time. She posted the item with the price and people paid her through paypal. As items sold she went back in and updated whit items were gone. Someone else did this with jewelry and had a good turn out too.

  93. I agree about the teacher gifts or the Christmas gifts for neighbors/family/friends! I also love the "As for Me and My House, We will serve the Lord." That's always been one of my favorite scriptures!!!Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  94. These are fabulous! Whatever you don't sell on etsy, WOULD make great gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Dear Susie, I went to the dr. this morning and he told me what would cure me, would be some cute little placques with fleur de lis and such on them.......please advise....:-p

    Yes, sell them anyway you can, but only if you make sure I get one!! :)

    Suzanne (after all we do have a similar name....)

  96. Oh Susie these are TOO cute! I would ♥ one or two!!

  97. These plaques are fantastic. You are so talented! I can't wait to see it all in your etsy shop!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm seeing a big etsy sale too... then you can use that money for something special for your new work place that you normally would not have purchased. See how I rationalized an extravagant purchase...

    ReplyDelete
  99. Etsy sounds like a perfect place to find homes for all these pretties. Once listed, I'm sure they will all be quickly adopted!

    ReplyDelete

  103. These are just adoor'ablt!!! Get the pun from yesterdays post? Anyway, these are wonderful. I agree with everyone else re: Etsy. I can't wait to go over there and look at all your 'goodies'. Maybe I will win one. Thanks for the give-a-way opportunity. Cherri

    ReplyDelete
  104. I can't pick a favorite. They are all so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  105. These are really pretty! I don't think you would have a problem selling them!! Maybe in bulk to a local home decor shop? Maybe give some away. For example I know our local MOPS organization is putting together a silent auction and needs donations? Maybe your local MOPS/school/church would love a donation of a few? Buy a slot at a flea market for a weekend?? Or make your new cottage be a shrine to your work and cover every inch with a plaque!! haha. good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  106. LOVE the fleur de lis! Adorable! Yes, yes put them in your etsy shop!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Love them....especially the rooster! I hope you still have one on Etsy! Going to shop.....

  112. I'm all for the Etsy sale or the discounted if you buy two deal... Looking forward to finding out, I'm eyeing a couple myself!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Wow, that is quite the collection. I agree that Etsy is the way to go on selling them off. I myself will be heading over to look through all that you have.

  115. girrrrl! us southern girls & our fleur de lis-just precious! etsy would be great. btw-i made one of the family name plaques(on pine)for myself & everybody i know loves it! thanks for that inspiration ^.^

  116. Will you be listing more Susie?? They are soo cute but I see some in the pics not listed. I missed out on the one I really wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  117. So cute. Thanks for the opportunity! :O)

    ReplyDelete
  118. I was going to suggest Craigslist, but those are just too nice to sell on the cheap. I have my eye on one myself.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Those are gorgeous! I especially love the one with the rooster!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I really love the plaque that has the verse on it (As for me and my house...). It's really beautiful and would love it in my new house.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Am I too late for the giveaway???? I hope not because those plaques are SO pretty! Pick me! Pick me! : )

  123. I agree--List them on your Etsy. I am sure many people would buy them. I know I would love one!!

    ReplyDelete
  124. These are so cute!!! Love your blog keep up the work! And if I don't win I will be stopping by your new shop!!!

    ReplyDelete
  125. You could sell them at a local arts and crafts fair. We always have one right before Halloween around here. Or how about a lemonade stand type sale? Buy a plaque and get a lemonade free! My kids would love doing that for ya!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Since you want to get rid of them, why don't you make them a free gift with purchase? That way, you can sell your other Etsy stuff at the same time!

    Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  127. A lot of schools will allow you to set up a table in the teacher's lounge for a day or two. The teachers, office staff and PTA members love to buy handmade and affordable things. Since teachers can't get out and shop during the day, these make fabulous no-brainer Christmas or other occasion gifts!

    They are all super cute!!
