New Inventory Added.....But, I Really Need Some Help Bloggers!


I spent the day shaking up the shop and adding some new junk!
Thought I would share a few photos with you when I ran into a problem!

I need help bloggers.

Well, my photo storage is out, renewed last year for $5.
It seems now it is at least $2.49 a month? Really?
But when I tried to renew it won't let me cause I have no credit card or bank account saved in GOOGLE WALLET?
What the heck is google wallet?
They want me to send a scanned copy of drivers licenses
passport papers, bank statement........the list goes on!
Is this for real?
I'm not sending anybody anything!
I have never even heard of google wallet.
I know what you are saying, what rock has she been under?
How in the world to you set up your google wallet account?
Is this a total scam?
Please, please, please somebody help me!
Sorry! As you can see I'm sorta freaked out!
Please enjoy these photos, 
as I may never be able to post again! Hahahaha!

There is such a thing as google wallet account.
This must be the new way to pay for storage?
The last time I paid with pay pal!

I wouldn't send anything either! I've never heard of that google wallet thing either. Why would they want so much info for photo storage? Don't do it, that's what I say! Love all the pictures by the way!

I haven't posted in so long I wouldn't know. But I do know your way of moving things around is amazing!

No - Don't send anything!!!!! Something does not sound right! Why would "they" need all that info? Red flag definitely goes up on this!!

oldgreymare said...

never heard of it either..I was able to easily buy more storage through paypal and my google account..sounds fishy to me. Did you google google wallet/ or and how to purchase more space?

Oh no, that sets off all sorts of alarms! Be very careful!

Google Wallet is a virtual wallet that stores your payment information securely. More info here: http://www.google.com/wallet/

Hope this helps!

Hi,

I "googled" google wallet and apparently it is something new set up by Google for mobile paying. But I STILL wouldn't send that info onto the internet. Doesn't sound safe to me!
Love your shop photos! Very charming!

Well, based on my reading - Google wallet is legit. I went into Picasa as I also purchased memory for $5. Mine doesn't expire til 2013. It says the $5 plan has been replaced by monthly plans and yes the cheapest is $2.49. But when I went into my memory use section and "manage"d the account, it let me go further and read about new plans and it says that I can keep my old $5 plan if I have google wallet and my information is kept up to date...J

Love the photos! Especially the one with the photo of the lady surrounded by the photos on the clipboards! Too cool ~

I've never heard of that. If you go to your google account you should be able to just add a credit card on your own and renew through there, that's how I did it.

June said...

Your shop looks amazing Theresa!!!! It is chock full of treasures. How I wish I could step through those doors someday...
hugs from here...

Regardless if that's legit or not, that is way too much personal info to have 'out there' and I would never do it. There are a lot of free sites out there. I would investigate them. Also, are you just out of space on your computer? Can you store them on a flash? A really good flash maybe 20 bucks but can store a huge amount of visual images.

gee...never heard of that theresa-your shop is gorgeously filled to the brim! :) chris

Your photos are gorgeous. I am convinced that google is intent on world domination...bit by bit...inch by inch.
I am not sure we have much control over the storage thing except by moving from blogger to Wordpress or a website of our own. They even tell you they basically "own" your content. Creepy.

freddyandpetunia said...

I never heard of this either, so I looked it up. Seems to be legit!

That's so funny--I just had to buy more photo space too!

Your store looks SO good! I love all the displays, colors, textures and more. EVERYTHING looks absolutely awesome. It sounds like you got plenty of answers to your photo question. Have a great day my friend.

Imperfections said...

Well I can't help you because I've never even heard of paying for photo storage! As for all that info they want, even if it is for real I wouldn't give anybody that much information about myself.

Teddee said...

I just had to increase my photo storage space. It cost $5 and I did it through PayPal. Sounds like a scam to me.

tattered elegance said...

this whole photo storage stuff is new to me ( im a newbie blogger) but thanks for keeping us informed. I absoultly LOVE your displays your'v ereally got an eye for decorating such an inspiration!!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

The shop is looking wonderful! You have such a signature style. Love it! I hope you're all straightened away. It seems like there's a scam around every corner!

Hi Theresa,

I recently found this link about picasa web album storage very helpful:
http://support.google.com/picasa/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1224181

So did you know that uploading pictures not bigger than 800 x 800 pixel to blogger is always free? If you run out of storage space they automatically resize your pictures to 800 x 800 if they are bigger than that, that's all! So don't worry anymore and keep inspiring us!:)
Sending you warm Summer wishes from Germany

Elizabeth@ Pine Cones and Acorns said...

I love your store and all of your "junk" as they say!!! Your booth is beautiful! I am sure that it is very successful.

I had not heard of google wallet either but it is nice to know there are so many helpful people that do.

Have a great weekeend, Elizabeth

Jackie said...

Miss T I just put pix in a "folder" on my laptop. Why do you have to store them someplace else? My son set up a free "dropbox" so I can get pictures and other things from one computer to another. Check out dropbox. If you come to the July Brimfield I'll have Luke set it up for you!

Pallas said...

You really have a lot of treasures in your store. Can't wait to come over and see it in person.

Shannon said...

Love your displays and colors!
