Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted lately but I teach for an online univeristy and this is a busy time of the year for me. Thanks for all my followers who keep visiting.
I have really been blessed lately with all the great finds I have stumbled on. I am trying to get into the garage sale groove more so I can get better deals. My booth has not been doing so hot. You know I downsized to just a shelf and this month I don't think I will make my rent. Last month I made less than $50. The place I am at is more thrift then antiqes although there are lots of antiques and the area is an area with lots of traffice but it is a lower socioeconomic population in this area. Shabby chic stuff is not selling. I have a whole shelf of really pretty china, plates and they are not moving. I did have a yard sale last wee and posted on Craigslist as a Shabby Chic sale and I made $180 which is more than I have ever made before but I sold lots of smalls and still have large pieces which are cluttering up my house and driving me crazy. There is a yard sale across Florida that is September 10th (my birthday) and I hope to sell some items. I still have a trunk, metal bistro set, plate shelf, top to a hutch, and 2 doors to name a few. I am going to do rock bottom prices at that sale and hopefully I can get rid of it all.
On to the goodies.....I found these sweet windows which almost look like doors off an old cupboard because of the latch this one has. I only paid $5 each at Habitat store. Yeah! There was a narrow closet door that I went back and picked up but it was $15 but look at the sweet art deco looking hanger and hardware.
Here is the little door.
I also picked up these watering cans for $5.00 each. I cannot tell you how long I have been looking at these at stores for $30 - $50. I will tell you patience does pay off! Also follow your instincts. I have a number of places I visit each week. Thrift stores, antique stores, junk stores and sometimes I don't find anything but I have this little voice inside that sometimes insists go go go to a particular store and that happened for all these goodies. You all know what I am talking about! God is good!
I hope you enjoyed seeing my bargains. Tune in this week I will be showing a piece of furniture I made recently and other goodies.
