Hi there! I’m pleased to report in today’s what’s selling in vintage and antiques post that July was a good month for me. I hope it was for you as well. The Gristmill Antique Center (Troy, NY) where I have a booth, has a large covered porch area where dealers can place items for sale. This month, six items sold from that location, which helped tremendously. I’ve placed a P next to them, so you’ll know which pieces those were.
These income report posts have become among the most popular with readers, but I’d love to hear what other types of vintage and antique posts you’re looking for–leave me a comment below and let me know 🙂 You can find previous income reports here: May what’s selling and here: June what’s selling.
This month you’ll find that a wide variety of vintage and antique items sold, from small furniture to ironstone and books to baskets. Let’s take a look:
Cement cherub garden ornament (cost: $1, sold: $32/38). P [Note: when you see a price with a backslash (/), the second number refers to the original price. Sometimes I mark prices down, the shop gives a 10% discount, or I’ll run a 20% off sale around holidays, like July 4th, along with other dealers in my shop.]
