Good deals on Etsy

By Brittany Yurkovitch on Jan 6, 2013.

“This next goodie was no splurge at a wildly inexpensive $10.  Sorry, I got the only one of these:”-Katy Kincade at Green Magpie

It has been a while since my last post. I have been incredibly busy during the holidays entertaining guests and getting ready for the new semester. Applying for a teaching award and getting ready to teach three new classes puts a strain on my creative writing motivation. I find that my creativity dwindles during the hectic school year and peaks during the peaceful summer time.  As for now, my mind is mostly concerned with getting ready to teach Economics, AP MacroEconomics, and US History in the spring. However, I do have some fabulous things to write about- I just struggle to find the time to write! Blargh!

Anyways, I am very blessed for the holiday shopping purchases this year. Given the struggle making ends meet, I am always flattered to receive business in these times. Despite moving from Florida to Texas, Etsy enables me to keep my side business thriving. I recently sold this cute “Don’t Pollute” owl top through my Etsy shop. I appreciate buyer, Katy Kincade’s, positive remarks about the affordability. Check out Katy’s  Eco-Fashion blog  and her Magpie a La Mode Etsy shop where she makes cute things like

Being a teacher, I see an educational opportunities everywhere. Many times, I use what I have learned running an etsy shop to explain economic principles in the classroom. I know, so nerdy, but so awesome, too. It especially helps when discussing free market capitalism. I try to keep my costs low so that I can compete with the slave made clothing. I experiment with adjusting prices to find where the customer and I can find a happy medium.  In June 2011, I began listing my items on etsy with much higher prices, closer to $50. While I sold several dresses monthly at these higher these more expensive prices, my inventory was fairly large and I needed to reclaim some of my closet space. Like magic, the law of demand kicked in! As I lowered my prices closer to the $30 range with a few as low as $10 (so that the listing pop up in the search listings when looking at lowest prices first) I noticed the volume of dresses sold increased nearly immediately.

While some of these economic concepts appear to be putting a label on common sense, I am flabbergasted at our nation’s leaders  ignorance of or flagrant disregard of obvious economic principles. One would think that the leaders of nations would get it by now. The authorities can never completely control the economy, nor even one good or service within the economy.  No matter how hard they try, it never works and always, ALWAYS ends up in disaster. The more they interfere, the more they encourage criminal activity and black markets with sky high prices controlled by mobsters. In his Farewell Address to Congress, Ron Paul sums up the problem of authoritarian control over the free market best using our infamous War on Drugs as an example:

” Has nobody noticed that the authorities can’t even keep drugs out of the prisons? How can making our entire society a prison solve the problem?”

He is so right. And unfortunately, too, the authoritarians are after other inanimate objects like guns. While the massacres at Sandy Hook and other places are horrendous, the push to further shred the Constitution via the Second Amendment restrictions is foolish at best. Any reasonably-thinking high school student could explain (hopefully) that every country that exterminates their people disarms them before committing genocide. In all seriousness, I cannot help but ponder the mental life of these so called leaders. They are either ignorant of basic facts or are willfully committing treason by disarming Americans. Both options are bad and my twisted mind tends to err on the side of treason.

I cannot believe these Harvard educated and experienced leaders are ignorant of basic history. Curious on the Fast and Furious scandal or gun control issues? Learn to think for yourself because as said by our Attorney General in 1995, we’ve gotta brainwash the people about guns!! (It gets good at about 3:00).
