Pumpkin Hill Studios Ebay store closing- also Yard sale info & Ebay auctions now

I regret to say that on May 31st I will be closing the ebay store Pumpkin Hill Studios . I am still doing auctions, in fact, all store stock has had prices lowered and been moved over to Ebay auctions now.I currently have miniature carpets in small and large for $5 and$9 with free shipping, Bespaq 1:4 armoire for $70, and other items with prices lowered as well. Please keep in mind that the miniature carpets listed are ONLY listed for 3 days, then they will be at the yard sale.

My reasons for closing the ebay store are many...and they are a long time in coming. I cannot continue to sell regularly on a site that so blatantly punishes its sellers who are hardworking. Ebay does not seem to understand that they are successful because of sellers like myself. Their new standards are the final straw in a long list of problems I have with them. I will still do auctions occasionally, so please keep me bookmarked, but will no longer have an ebay store. I intend to start selling on weekends to the general public at a variety of venues such as the indoor/outdoor flea markets, craigslist and my website. My items appear to move much quicker this way and I will probably begin to move the curios this way as well. 

For those of you interested in bargains, I & my husband will be having yard sales throughout the summer clearing out store stock and other items from my mother's estate. We had an incredible yard sale last weekend on Saturday the 24th and sold alot of the overstock of dollhouse building components and I still have more! 
Here is the link to the Craigslist add Lisa'sYard sale
Address - 2122 Dumbarton Road, Richmond, Va 23228 
Time- 8 am to 1 pm.  PM me through the craigslist add or email me with any question you may have.

On our miniature items I will also be having at this one over 80 sheets of miniature wallpapers- 20+ patterns- minigraphics, brodnax and more at $1 each as well as miniature dollhouse carpets at $3 & $5 each. Please ask to see these as I do not the papers overhandled. 

We had alot of household items and to this this week we are adding Golf clubs, tall, left handed, as well as kitchen items and men's and women's clothing - fill a large bag for $5 or 2 clothing items for $1 . Shoes are 2 for a dollar as well. The lamps pictured will be out there too and they are $5 apiece $10 for the pair, they are working lamps.

35% off Memorial Day sale in my Ebay store & News....

I am currently having a Memorial day sale in my Ebay store Pumpkin Hill Studios with many items 35%off their retail price. This is a clearance sale and many of the prices are very good. The sale lasts from May 21st thru May 26th on Memorial day. 

I have many items, such as some more curios and large scale Bespaq, on Ebay Auction as well, check them out.

NEWS: I will be closing down my Ebay store by the end of the month. There are many reasons for this, but one, is mainly to do with Ebay and its policies, not my customers. I will still be doing Ebay auction under my user id pumpkinhillstudios.  One problem is that many people do not realize I work in my husband's business as well, which has to coordinate with my schedule. Taking photos, writing listings, working on the website, takes a huge amount of time that I would rather be spending on other projects I have long wanted to do, not only artistically but in other venues as well. 

King William Miniatures & Collectibles website will also be closing, I just have not worked out when. 

As far as still operating as a business, yes, I will as I would like to occasionally do shows, so we won't totally be disappearing. There are some custom projects I want to work on, and right now I want to step back from the retail end a bit more. 

Here are some items ending soon on Ebay auction-

American girl Samantha brass bed on ebay now, with other items

I have some items up on Ebay Auctions and one is American Girl Samantha's Brass bed with bedding  Check out the photos below. Beginning bed is $25, bed dis-assembles for easy storage. I handmade the pillows and mattress- the blanket is a knit baby blanket with pink rosebuds and leaves on it. Fits bjd's too, from 15-19 inches high Check out the pictures below.
I also have a 6 1/4 inch Madame alexander Tinkerbell statue on auction, as well as an antique/vintage doll trunk. I originally thought to refurbish this trunk, but decided that it would not fit my French fashion doll, who I have shown it with for size comparisons. Very sturdy antique piece, great for smaller dolls such as Bluette, or Mignonette.
