Vintage and Thrift Hunting- Post #12

Welcome back to Vintage and Thrift Hunting this is Post #12. I’m not sure where the time goes, it’s obviously been a while since my last post.  I am happy to report that I managed to keep my boot cast on 5 out of 6 weeks and my foot has healed and I’m back to doing all the things I love to do, including vintage hunting and thrifting.

I’m excited to share with you my latest thrifty and vintage finds and to let you know about some of the items that sold from my Vintage Booth.

It seems old hard sided suitcases are still quite popular.  I had a nesting set of three, a small square makeup case and a medium size square one at my booth, all of them sold since my last post.  I sold the nesting set for $40.00, the makeup case for $30.00 and the square one for $20.00 

I sold the green one before I managed to get an individual picture of it, but you can see it here amongst my other booth items.

I love when you go to a garage sale and the person selling says everything is for sale…I literally talked the guy off of this stool.  He said everything was for sale and I asked if it included the stool he was sitting on.  Continue reading Vintage and Thrift Hunting- Post #12

Vintage and Thrift Hunting- Post #8 Plus A New Venture

Welcome back to Vintage and Thrift Hunting this is Post #8. I am so happy you’re here and can’t wait to share with you my latest thrifty and auction finds as well as to tell you about my latest venture.

I’ve been busy garage “saleing” and auctioning and found some good items to sell on my Facebook site and in my booth at the local photography studio.

YES that is my latest venture.  I decided to rent a booth at a local photo studio to show off and sell some of my vintage items. It was a big step for me and I know I have lots to learn but I’m excited I took this step. This is my first time renting and selling in a retail environment. Here is a picture of the setup – I welcome any feedback and/or suggestions my readers might have. The space is 5×5 and the only wall I have access to is the one with the mirrors.

Ok so that’s my booth, now onto some treasures I found last week. I couldn’t resist this Tulip cutout magazine rack and the handmade wooden stool. I put them both in my booth for $25.00 each.
This beautiful antique Singer sewing cabinet with drawers sold off my site as soon as I posted it….the lady that bought it said she was going to use the bottom and make a table. I love it as is but I know it will also make a great table.
