Hi everyone! It’s been several months since I gave you a look at my booth at Gristmill Antique Center, where I’ve been selling antiques and vintage since last spring. The week-end before last, I received a phone call from the owner, Bob, telling me that my spot had been decimated(!). Music to an antique dealer’s ears, right? Apparently several larger pieces had sold, including an Adirondack table, a child’s drop leaf kitchen table, a shelving unit, and the taupe dresser with white stenciling that I recently shared with you. So I cleaned up a few pieces, filled my van, and proceeded to the shop to restock. (Yes, I forgot to take photos of the barren mess I found when I arrived–sorry.)
This black cupboard is behind the enamel table, and looking at the photo, it looks very clutter-y. I’m going to have to pull out some the
junk precious antiques next time I visit. (The cupboard belongs to the shop.)
Looking head on into my space, this is the current view. The large cupboard sitting on the floor is new-to-the-booth. I bought it last summer at an estate sale with my sweet daughter (cost: $30.00, list price: $125.00). I also brought up the bird cage and stand on the right, which I later learned sold about 30 minutes after I left the shop(!). Can you believe I bought the two pieces at separate sales? (cost: $3 (cage) $5 (stand), list price: $55.00)
This view is of the right-hand side of the “U.” I brought up this cute, red suitcase the day I moved in, and I can’t believe it hasn’t sold yet. I’ve priced it at just $45.00, but I guess that’s too high. I’ll have to lower the price next time I’m up there. The ladder on the left is a relatively new addition–so handy for displaying linens, blankets, and quilts. A couple of years ago, I bought two ladders and only just got around to having them cut in half (cost: $1.00, list price: $35.00).
That’s it for me! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
