Antique Booth Pictures for July

Antique Booth Pictures for July

There are a several reasons I haven’t been taking many/any pictures of the booth in awhile.

  1. I let it get pretty empty. Ricky made the offhand comment his furniture was making the money, so I stopped putting my stuff in there. I’d just show him. Yeah. I’m having to start filling it up again. The furniture makes a big chunk at once, but the smalls usually equal that amount. It takes it all.
  2. When we went to the booth, we were usually running late and basically had to drop and run. It just wasn’t looking nice.
  3. My phone was sick. See the end of the previous post about that. I wasn’t taking any pictures anywhere, any time. 

But I now have a new phone and will have to get back in the habit. Or a better habit than I was in before. I also need to take more stuff. It still looks a bit skimpy in the pictures. Continue reading

Weekend Picking Finds

Weekend Picking Finds

I still haven’t got back into the junking groove. Still so much I haven’t done anything with, but I did go to an interesting sounding “estate” sale in nearby town last week. The pictures looked like there could be some good things hiding in the boxes and piles and the sale company made it all sound so exciting. I’d never been to one of theirs before, so decided to un-hibernate and go see what it was all about. 

My phone has been so sick. Among lots of other problems, the camera was permanently set facing me and only another factory reset (I’d already done about 6) would fix that. It just didn’t seem worth it, but I soooo wished I had a working camera with me when I stepped into this house!  Continue reading

Even Vintage Lovers Can Save With Groupon Coupons!

I often talk about saving money on the blog. Usually it’s about getting deals at yard and estate sales, but we can’t buy everything there. Almost, but we do have to go out into the real, retail world occasionally. So when I got the opportunity to do a Groupon Coupons review, I jumped on it. I don’t do sponsored posts often. Most don’t even remotely fit my blog, but saving money does. As far as I’m concerned, saving money is always appropriate!

Most of you know about the great deals you can get through Groupon, but did you know Groupon has coupons, too? Groupon Coupons. And most can be used in store or online!

I have always used coupons. Cents off at the grocery store and % off at department stores. All my adult life. I started back when you could get a nickle off a bag of flour and the coupon never expired. Makes me sound ancient, doesn’t it? My mother used them and passed her thriftiness on down to me and I’ve passed it to my daughter. My, how the coupon world has changed since I first began! We can print them right off the internet these days.  Momma would have loved that.

That’s my mom with money in hand back in the late 1950’s.

At Groupon Coupons you can print cents off coupons specifically for stores like WalMart and Target and % off for places like Barnes & Noble and Bed Bath and Beyond among countless other stores!

But guess what? There are also coupons for eBay! That’s great for vintage lovers and sellers! Right now, one of the offers is for a $10 coupon to be used if you list an item for sale – auction style, Buy It Now or Fixed Price and it sells within 15 days. The coupon can then be used to buy something for yourself — or to flip and resell. Woot-woot! 

I couldn’t find the actual number of stores listed with Groupon Coupons, but it’s mind boggling. Several hundred that start with the letter “A” alone! It appears that if it’s a fairly major chain, it’s in there. I’m sure not all have deals going on all the time, but if you’re going to be shopping in any store, it’s worth it to see what kinds of coupons are available. My favorite store, Anthropologie is there with an extra 10% off coupon. 

If you haven’t already, check it out! If you like using coupons and saving money, you’ll be so glad you did. The money you save can be spent at yard sales!
