Because I'll be selling a mixture of handcrafted and vintage items, now when I go thrift shopping I have the justification that I'm "looking for inventory" ~wink-wink~ Actually, I really did find some goodies this past week and I think I'm even going to sell as much as I plan to keep!
This was my first buy of the weekend, and I have to admit I'm having some buyer's remorse over it. I bought it thinking that I could use it in my booth because one type of item I'm planning to sell is greeting cards. However, this sucker is HEAVY and takes up a lot of room and I really hadn't planned to make that many cards. I only paid $15 so I'm seriously considering throwing it on Craigslist to see if I can't get my money back or even a little bit more.
I've never seen this particular Pyrex pattern but these funky coffee cups were in the right color scheme, so in the booth they'll go. I also picked up this little aqua planter. I love the combination of orange and aqua and even though it isn't a traditional fall color, it's a trendy color and I think a few pops of aqua here and there in my booth will look nice.
I've also been on the hunt for a few larger pieces to sell. I found these at an estate sale Friday morning. They'll both get a coat of paint--not sure what colors yet, but one of them is going to end up aqua because I have a bunch of aqua paint. They'll be good display space and hopefully be eye-catching for shoppers.
And one last find from the estate sale--a box of vintage ornaments and a vintage "BEANO" game. Now, until Friday the only Beano I was acquainted with was this kind, so I learned something new when I found out that BEANO is an alternative to Bingo. Strange, but the cards are cute! The box had another set of red and blue Bingo cards and markers crammed inside as well, so I suppose we can play BEANO or BINGO, depending on how much fiber we need in our diets that particular day.
Tonight I took some time to start making boxes of "inventory" from the storage shelves in my basement; stuff that I've thrifted with resale in mind that fits my color scheme. I've already got three boxes full but will need much more to stock two 10' x 10' booths. Time to hit the stores for more "inventory" shopping!
