Where's the money burning a hole in my pocket???

In the past week I have order beads from three different Etsy sellers spending about $50 in all. I have also gone to one local bead store and spend $50. So just this week along I have spent about $100 in beads. What's my point? Well, I have been selling on Etsy for a total of six months now and I have made a grand total of $150. If I was a real business women I wouldn't buy anymore beads until I have sold all 50 items on Etsy. Or I would sell the millions strands of beads I have not used (and may never use)! Why do I keep on buying more and more beads almost each week?!  Think I may have a problem....lol.
Have any of you seem the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic"? Well, here is my confession...
Hi my name is Busy Beader and I am a beadaholic.

Opening a New Shop! .....maybe.

My mom wants to get rid and sell some of her nice antiques. I told her that it might be a good idea to just try selling them on Etsy. I told her if she made the prices I would take the pictures and list them. Since I sell jewelry on Etsy I am not sure how the whole vintage/antiques thing does on Etsy. Do any of you sell vintage or antiques on Etsy? Do you get a lot of sales? My my has some great antiques! I know she would love to get some money for them and I am wondering if Etsy is a good place to do so?

Long time no talk!

Man! I am really dropping the ball when it comes to blogging! Life is just too busy sometimes!
I am back now and will try to do better! Hope everyone is doing well!  Hope ETSY business is going well! I have good news! One May 29th I got my fourth sale! I was shocked! I had just come home from a weekend at the lake and didn't set my shop as "on vacation" because I was only going to be gone for a two full days. When I got home I got on the computer right away and I saw the sale!
This weekend I am planning on taking new pictures for all of my peices (or most). I am motivated to get more sales! I would like to put about 100 items on Etsy. I heard that reallllly helps!
That's it for now!
