Silverplate covered sugar dish, $1.00. It’s pretty tarnished & I think I’ll clean it up & see how it looks.
Metal leaf/acorn tray. This needs some touch-up paint, but it’s so cute… 50 cents
Very pretty & finely stitched needlepoint picture, $1.00
All these linens were $10.00. There’s actually 7 pieces, but this collage repeated 2 of them. There’s a sampler, a yellow rose, and some other pretty vintage things. I don’t really collect these, but they were too pretty to pass up, so I’ll probably resell some of these items.
I’m seriously thinking about starting some sort of resale business, where I buy yardsale items, fix them up & resell them. I find so many great things, but simply cannot house them all at my home! I’m running out of space!!
I checked at a local antique mall for prices on their booth spaces. The smallest booth they had was $160 a month. I know several of my fellow bloggers have an internet business, Ebay business or an antique booth. I’d love to hear some feedback from all of you who do have businesses & let me know how you got started, what you do to sell things & how it’s working for you. I’m just mulling over some ideas, but would love some down-to-earth feedback from any of you who are doing this. I have sold some things on Ebay, but the shipping & packaging on larger, heavier items is really prohibitive on trying to sell small furniture items this way or items that are very fragile. So, I’d really like to do something….just not sure how to get it off the ground. I’m doing a small amount of decorating consulting & that’s just getting off the ground too & I’d love to do more of that, but it takes awhile to build a business & get your name out there. I would love to combine my decorating abilities with reselling yardsale items & make a go of that. Any ideas for me? I’d love any feedback from all of you fine women out there who are so creative & talented!
I also want to say to all of you who stop by & visit my blog…thank you SO much! I’m honored to have made so many new friends in such a short time & I’m having a ball doing this. Your comments mean so much to me & I love it when you do take the time to let me know you’re here. So, to all my new & old friends, thanks a bunch!
