Opening a New Booth at Oz Antique Market

After having an antique booth in Douglasville, Georgia at Ben's Furniture and Antiques for almost three years, I had decided it was time to try something new. Ben's is a great shop with helpful employees, great vendors, and amazing antique and vintage items and I have been happy with my sales there. But since Ben's was the first place I have ever had an antique business, I wanted to open … [Read more...]

New Display Space for My Booth

Last month I was walking through Ben's, the antique store where I have my booths when I saw some really awesome items in a friend's booth. It was two older display cabinets. I immediately inspected them but couldn't bring myself to buy them. I finally did buy them both,  about a week apart. Both of these pieces came from an old hardware store in Powder Springs, Georgia. They are both hand-made … [Read more...]

China Finds in June

I shopped several yard sales close to home this past weekend and was happy to find several really nice sets of china. I have collected china for years and have gotten to the point where I am very selective about the china  I buy for myself (mainly because I don't have enough room to add much more LOL). I have been selling a good bit of china in my booth recently so most of my purchases will go … [Read more...]

Pyrex, China, and a Model Plane

I added quite a few new items to my booth in the past week. I am trying to get in the habit of taking things straight to the store rather than bringing them home.  My garage is so full right now. I went to an awesome neighborhood yard sale last week. One of my fellow booth owners is closing her booth this month and she was clearing out much of her stock that she had been keeping at home.  There … [Read more...]

Neighborhood Yard Sale Finds

Last week I mentioned that I was looking forward to a local, semi-annual neighborhood yard sale. Normally there are at least sixty or seventy homes participating. Unfortunately, there weren't nearly as many homes participating this year but I was still able to find a few good deals. I found this pretty little pitcher. I also got these silk flowers. I got five sets of the flowers and used … [Read more...]

Antique Booth: January Sales

While January is typically a slow time of year for most antique booth dealers, this January was actually the best month I have had since opening my booth over a year-and-a-half ago. As I mentioned in my last post,  I opened a new booth at Ben's Furniture and Antiques in Douglasville, Georgia during the middle of January. It is more expensive than my other booth but it is in a great location in … [Read more...]

Antique Booth

I have been busy the last few weeks working on a new project and I am excited to share it with you today. My friend Anne and I have opened an antique booth at Ben's Antiques and Market in Douglasville, Georgia. Ben's just opened last Fall and is located in the old Kmart building on Highway 5. Remember shopping there as a kid? I know I do. This was our booth before we started painting and … [Read more...]
