another sales pitch.

I hope no one is too disappointed to realize that today’s post is nothing more than a thinly veiled sales pitch.  Well … for that matter it’s not really even veiled at all.  It just is a sale pitch.

Remember the tool box that I shared back in October?

It was snatched up right away by one of my local readers.  There were a couple of additional readers who expressed interest in buying it, but they were too late.

However, I just happened to have more toolboxes on hand, so I told the 2nd interested party that I would paint another one for her.

As you can see, it’s not exactly the same.  I used some different sections of the IOD Label Ephemera transfer on this one.  But it’s very similar in style.

I also used a different color on the inside of this one.

This time I used Dixie Belle’s Flamingo to add a pop of color to the interior.  Last time I used Peony.

Once again I also lined the bottom using one of by prima’s decoupage tissue papers.

So, you must be wondering at this point, why is Q calling this a sales pitch when she already has a buyer lined up for it?

Well, my buyer didn’t follow through.  I’ve reached out to her a few times but, as you can see, I still have the toolbox.  I’m not complaining, I know full well that people get busy, life gets crazy, etc.  The best laid plans and all … especially these days with COVID running rampant.

But I think it’s time for me to stop beating a dead horse, move on, and see if someone else wants to purchase it.

The price is $38 and the toolbox is 20.25″ wide x 8.5″ deep by 9.75″ tall.  Quick update:  I do have a buyer!

As you all know, I don’t like to ship things (I’m just not set up for it and so far haven’t found that I need to be) so the potential buyer will have to be a local who can pick it up.  If interested, you can email me at, or leave a comment here on the blog.  First come, first served.

If there aren’t any takers, it will go in the pile of things I’m putting together for the next time I take a load of items to the shop that sells things for me, Reclaiming Beautiful in Stillwater, MN.  I’m sure that eventually this piece will end up going to a good home!

    1. Hopefully some other readers will share as well, but speaking for myself … I have 3 of them. I keep all of my furniture waxes in one (a larger one) and I keep scrapbooking supplies in another larger one. Then I have a smaller one that contains my hot glue guns (2) and the extra glue. I think they are particularly handy for crafting supplies of all kinds!


  1. Well I LOVE your toolboxes Miss Quandie………lucky is the admirer of your work who lives close by! Have you ever worked on a PLASTIC toolbox? They’re the only kind to be found around here! Could they possibly have the same charm?
