I spent two days down at the antique mall this week preparing for my booth's 15% Off Holiday Sale, and guess what. Almost as soon as I put up the signs, a woman wandered in, I told her everything over $10 was 15% off, and she literally began grabbing stuff and carrying it to the counter! I figured it was a good time to skedaddle and let her shop to her heart's content.
Big Boy's about to be listed on Etsy. Having him in your home is a great way to remind yourself to stay away from doubledecker burgers, fries and chocolate shakes. Unless of course you WANT to look like this!
Today I'm taking more stuff to the booth--alot of blue and white including a beautiful Royal Delft handpainted spoon rack (with silverplated vanes--technically called "sails"--that spin). And oh, is that a pair of little Dutch clogs I spy, Miz Tinky? Not everything in the photo is going, though--some will get listed on Etsy like the four Ben Seibel soup bowls.
These darling Holt Howard candleholders have sat in the booth's showcase for two Christmases while people buy brand new made in China crapola. Amazing. They're going to the Etsy store and I'm sure someone there will appreciate them.
Genuine Holt Howard Japan sticker and a datestamp!
The famous Kissing Santa & Mrs. Claus salt & pepper shakers. On their way to Etsy.
Several of the pieces I'm taking to the booth today are blue and white. I love this pretty little girl with the blue hat and the swirling skirt. I'm sure she thinks she's just way too good for old porky Big Boy, though.
Actually, Etsy hasn't turned out to be all that great as a sales venue--I've made one sale so far and I actually lost money on the sale but at least it's one less thing in my house/shed/garage!
Per the request of Miz Atomic Ranch I'm going to be putting more mid-century things up for sale but the thought of doing all that photography and listing wears me out (yes, just the THOUGHT of it wears me out). I'll get started on it Monday.
