We just returned this weekend from visiting my mother in law and Missouri. She gave us several antique or vintage items that we are going to sell on eBay. That is our way of making extra money and if Steve isn't allowed to go back to work, he is going to play a major part in running that business. I know it starts out slow, but then picks up. I remember someone here that does an eBay business. I can't remember where the thread was or who it was, but I would love it if that person would send me a PM so I could ask some questions. Thanks,

Sherri

Optimumsteps, my grandmother supported herself for years ironing for others. People would drop off laundry at her house and she did it for them. They picked it up the next day. I don't know what she charged for it, but she always had all the work she could handle...she also washed dress shirts ect if people wanted her to do that.

I bet you could make a whole lot more doing it today!

Did she have on e of those sprinkle bottles?

I recall one of my cousins making them for all her aunts one Christmas. All she did was decorate a glass bottle and stick a little sprinkler top in it. They raved about them. Now I use a plastic squirt bottle.

I usually use Orange Blossom Water or Rose Water for the steam.

I remember at one time I kept hearing others comment about how much they hate to iron. So this idea came to me. I don't have time to take on anything extra, but it is really nice to know that there is a market for it, just in case.

Cheers,
Cathi

A woman here in Nevada just had a book published titled; Activites For You and the Kids in Vegas. It is for sinlge parents or dads and moms looking for things to do with the kids and its about 400 pages and filled with ideas. In a town like this thats adult oriented and has so many new people moving here monthly, something like this book is so helpful and absolutely necessary.
