Another sale/trade preview post

I'd hoped to get this year's sell/trade post up a couple weeks earlier than I did last year (25 April), but it's looking like I'll be lucky to post it at the same time. Deciding which things to offer took a very long time on its own, and then everything had to be photographed, and I spent a day trying to make sense of the USPS's shipping charges from last year, in hopes of coming up with a better approximation for this year, so on and on it goes.

But! I do at least have a few early pictures, which I may as well share, since I don't have much else going on anyway. Prices are still being determined, and obviously I'm selling more than four kinds of plants (about 80, with another 10 that aren't ready yet but will be by the end of the summer -- or at least I hope they will be), and I may as well admit now that these are some of the better-looking plants I have to offer, and they don't all look like this. But as a taste:

Episcia NOID.

Gasteraloe x beguinii.

Hatiora salicornioides.

Nautilocalyx forgetii.

Peperomia pereskiifolia.

Pereskia aculeata var. godseffiana.

Nice and healthy plants! Hatiora salicornioides looks very cool.

Do you ship to Canada? I like those episcias.

Alas, I can't. Plants crossing borders need paperwork I can't afford to provide.

Lauren said...

Those look so big and beautiful! I look forward to looking at your finished list and (probably) giving you some business.

Are you shipping Priority Mail?

mr_subjunctive said...


Yes. Usually I mail on Monday and they arrive Thursday.

Jenn said...

With pics! Nice.

You won't see this, I'm sure, but -- I ship First Class, unless delivery confirmation is requested. They take the same amount of time, or are supposed to, but Priority is like 3 times more expensive.
