Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend. I made a trip to my antique booth at the Gristmill Antique Center in Troy (NY) on Friday, and yes, I did make time for some vintage shopping. And then on Saturday, my sweet husband and I drove an hour south to Woodstock (the Woodstock) to check out a new-to-me flea market. We decided while we wouldn’t recommend making it a destination spot, it should be visited in conjunction with any trip to this quaint town. I’ll share my purchases from all locations with you soon, but today I’m sharing my June antique booth sales. Ready?
My recently purchased, 6″ metal bust of JFK (cost: $1.00) sold for $12.00.
An imperfect flow blue dinner plate with some chippiness on the back (cost: 50¢, sold: $8.00).
A Pitney Bowes c.1950’s scale (cost: $5.00, sold: $15.00, marked down from $28.00).
Another recent purchase, a green watering can (cost:$1.00, sold: $12.00). You can read about collecting garden supplies like this one, here.
A vintage English Coalport teapot in the cabbage leaf, “China Ware” pattern (cost: $1.00, sold: $18.00).
A vintage copy of Gone With the Wind (cost: 50¢, sold: $2.00, marked down from $5.00). In addition, a copy of The Poetical Works of Longfellow (cost: $1.00, sold: $3.00, marked down from $5.00). If you like books, check out the books for sale in my Vintage Shop.
A garden claw, similar to this one, and a yellow-handled shovel, ( cost: $1.00 each) sold for $8.00 each.
One of these Rawleigh’s, milk glass jars (cost: $1.00) sold for $10.00. You can find ladies dresser items like these in my Vintage Shop.
Both of these folding rulers (cost: $1.00 each) sold for $8.00 each.
A nice sewing pamphlet with a graphically pleasing cover (cost: 50¢) sold for $4.00. I have sewing notions for sale in my Vintage Shop.
Sold but no photos:
Small side table $35.00
3-legged stool, $35.00
Small white chair, $18.00
Small gray bench, $13.00
Framed rooster print, $12.00
Additional books (6), $2-7.00 each
Antique green flower bucket, $12.00
Antique spatterware Dutch plate, $12.00 (similar to these)
If you’ve been following along with my antique booth sales reports, then you know that I have a goal of making 3 x $130 (my rent) or about $400.00/month. In addition, I like to keep the cost of my goods sold down, no more than 10% of my sales, or about $40.00. See my other sales reports here.
You may also recall that I’ve had some very crummy sales the past few months, very unusual for me, and a little disheartening. This month was better, but I still did not reach my target. My total sales for June amounted to $344.00 and my total cost of goods sold was $36.50 or 10.6% of my sales. On a happier note, July holds much more promise, and I’ve begun to sell a few things on eBay, so I’ll be writing about this new endeavor next month. Meanwhile, happy hunting!!
