Addicted To Pinterest.com
It's time for me to confide with my followers, I'm addicted to Pinterest.comhttp://pinterest.com/kitschnstuff/. I have discovered so many new websites, blogs, businesses, ideas, tips etc. There is nothing like the power of the image to hook you in. It's taken me awhile, but I think I now have the hang of these virtual pinning boards.
Meeting Kitchen Collectible Collectors On Pinterest.com
I'm getting to "meet" a lot of other obsessed Retro and vintage collectors and am having a lot of fun sharing pictures of vintage kitsch and kitchen collectibles with like minded friends. Pinterest.com is a great social media tool for antique dealers. In my case, I concentrate on kitchen and home collectibles and decor and have themed my Pinterest.com board accordingly. Additionally, I am sharing a sneak preview of my Pinterest.com boards on my blog sending traffic back and forth.
Truthfully, I am having more fun on Pinterest.com than going antiquing. I get to "collect" in cyberspace without the cost, fuss and time that driving around junking entails. I'm becoming real fond of my "collections" and am getting the same buzz after spotting something on Pinterest.com that I used to get when out antiquing.
