Re-opening my Etsy shop

I have way, way too much handspun yarn.  So I’m going to try selling some again.  And since my motivation is only to make back the money I spent on the fiber (so I can buy more fiber!), I’m going to donate half my profits to charity.  Specifically, I’m going to donate it to the #blacklivesmatter movement.  It’s one thing to share links on Facebook, but slacktivism is ultimately meaningless. So yeah.  I’m on disability, but I have a place to live and food to eat, and giving to a cause I believe in is worth keeping to a tighter budget.

Over the next week or so I’m going to start taking photos of my yarn and prepping them for sale.  I don’t even know if I’ll get any sales, but I have to try.  Otherwise the number of skeins I have will take over the entire apartment in six months, and Mom will get annoyed if I start replacing the food in the pantry with skeins of yarn!
