Friday didn’t have many sales, so I stayed at the shop and worked. But I was ready for Saturday. Gung ho! Ready to get out there and find the goodies! However, it was a wash. Literally and figuratively. Poured rain. Stormed. Found 5 or 6 sales that didn’t mention toys in the ad. A couple of estate sales, couple of moving sales and some regular yard sales. It seemed to be the day for new stuff. And blah stuff. Here’s what I found:
How sad is it that I could fit everything I bought in one chair? The only older things were a Vera scarf and the book with the torn binding. All books were free at that sale. You’d think I could come out with more than one book, either to read, resell or for decorative value, but this is the only one.
Everything else, the two mirrors, the Halloween thing, the cherub plaque, maybe not the little platform stand thing, are all newer, Homegoods, type things. Nothing wrong with that, but I’m buying for the shop. The shop that’s named Just Vintage. That kinda indicates everything in the shop is older. Right? But I have been sticking my big toe in, trying newer things just to see if it’s a happy addition to the shop. The jury’s still out on that one.
Yesterday was spent continuing with some home rearranging. The picture below is my lifetime collection of skeleton keys. And I think my grandpa gave every one of them to me when I was a little girl. I just don’t see them for sale around here. Is that odd? Do you see them at sales in your area?
The idea for hanging them like this came from someone’s blog. I do wish I could remember whose it was, so I could give them credit. I’m having so much fun, y’all! I’ve missed doing these things. But all my energies, all my thoughts, have gone into the business the past 2-1/2 years. I’m one of those people who’s either working or not working. I don’t do well working during the day and coming home at night to be the homemaker. I’m still trying to figure out the best days and hours fit for me and the customers.
