I haven't taken a stitch ...!

It is so unlike me to not be creating with needle, thread and fabric. In all honesty, I have been preoccupied with life in general. Lots of decisions to make and new directions to plan out.

One thing I have learned, there is a lot more to closing a business than just attempting to sell your inventory and move out! Lots of odds and end to button up. The experience I am acquiring in invaluable.

On another note, I now have quite the stash! lol

Oh, there is just a bit more in another room, but in all honesty, these are my favourites! Ok, all the fabrics at Fibre were my favourite! lol

I never really quite grasped the notion that I had a lot of inventory, all beautiful inventory, until I decided to close!  Most of it is gone and I am thankful for the customers that helped me liquidate. 

Although I would have liked to have been left with nothing, I can live with some of the left over inventory, just not all of it! 

For those of you who use Etsy and/or eBay, which one would you recommend? Which platform is more successful for you. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your comments, they are must appreciated! Cheers!

Not sure if you’re a Facebook user. There are many groups on there such as Quilters Classifieds and people seem to do very well.

I was going to say the same thing, a lot of people are doing well, selling on Facebook.
You can see on your own by opening up a selling site, but you will need to do your own advertising.
Another option is to look for a local yard sale page on Facebook in your area or a quilters buy and sell on Facebook. I have never used etsy and eBay is great to attract a wider audience but you have to consider the fees when selling.

I agree - there are lots of good selling sites on Facebook. My favorite is called Quilter's Stash of Goodies For Sale. Instagram is also good - use #destash and others that are similar.
