Blue and White Display in My Booth

It was time to reset my booth so I went in this week and started moving things around. I decided to put together a blue and white display so I gathered together what I already had in my booth and brought in some things that I had purchased over the last few months. I will probably continue to tweak it, but here is what I have come up with so far. I bought quite a few sets of salt and pepper … [Read more...]

Two Week Estate Sale Finds

Last week I attended an estate sale of a retired Eastern Airline pilot (not to be confused with my previous post about an estate sale at the home of a retired Delta airline executive). The home was set back on a beautiful wooded piece of property and was a mid-century contemporary design with five different levels. I didn't buy a lot at the sale but I was able to find some cool stuff to both … [Read more...]

South Fulton Estate Sale Finds

Earlier this month I mentioned that I had been to an incredible estate sale just the week before. As you probably know, December, January, and February are typically very slow months for yard sales and estate sales. While there may be a few estate sales each week, the yard sales don't usually start up until spring. So you could probably imagine my excitement when I saw an ad on estatesales.net for … [Read more...]

Happy New Year and an Antique Booth Update

Happy New Year everyone. It has been a while since I last blogged. Today I am going to share some photos of my antique booth. As you may know, after more than three years at its location in the old Kmart building on Highway 5, we had to relocate when the building was sold. The store closed in June and finally reopened in its new location in August. The new store is located next to Toys-R-Us on … [Read more...]

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...]
