THOSE Days


Well, today was one of THOSE days...

I got a call from the Antique Mall where I have my booth,
and found out that I had one of 
THOSE days, the kind I had only ever heard about. 

I thought they were a myth,
something that only happened to other dealers.
Until it happened to me.

Turns out a dealer from Austin came in, s
aw my booth, fell in love, and pretty much cleaned me out!

I sold as much in ONE DAY today
as I've been averaging in a GOOD month of sales!


Since this picture was taken a couple of months ago,
pretty much everything either white or silver is gone.
Out the door.
SOLD.

And the dealer today grabbed my charming
1910 white iron and wicker baby crib...


Along with about 25 other items.
I danced the happy jig right there in the shop!

Even though it's changed a good bit since these photos were snapped,
I'd love for y'all to head over and take a peek at how my booth
has evolved over the past few months.
Click HERE for the tour!

And just in case you're jonesing for another taste of what was in my last post,
here ya go, ya big bunch of hussies!  ;-)


Have a GREAT week!

Off to watch The Bachelorette Finale now.

Viva la Cottage said...

You go girl!! I always hear "they were buying out of the boxes while I was unpacking!!!!!"... and it did happend to me once. Did the jig as well.
You're not watching Pickers?

Vintage Junky said...

awesome! congrats on the big day! I think they call that housewarming money ;o

Anne said...

Hooray for you!! This is a red letter day indeed. Gerard Butler has been one of my favorites since Phantom of the Opera. He looks even better (in my humble opinion) with a half-mask and deeply v'd, ruffled shirt. And he can really sing!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
xo,
Anne

Congratulations again!!! Love & blessings from NC!

tara said...

That is utterly fantastic Anne,love hearing news like this!! And well the last photo, swoon!! xoxo

Cori said...

Anne! I am so proud of you and happy about the great lot of sales! You must be beside yourself with giddiness : ) I have loved watching your space evolve and have learned a lot from you as I am about 3 months into my journey now. I love doing the space and want it to be just a little bit more lucrative over the next several months. So many things to learn.

Yes, you do need to restock and I happen to LOVE the Rustoleum 2x coverage spray paint in Heirloon White matte finish. I've probably used 50 cans of it over the last several months. It covers so well, is a perfect shad of off-white and goes on so smoothly. I've never had a can get "gummed up" on me. I use one of those little attachments to spray easier and that works wonderfully. I buy mine at Home Depot. It is the best line of spray paint EVER.

I'm about to paint a bench that we made from an old double headboard and footboard. Now that one won't be going to the shop. It will be staying her at Starview Sonnet with me. I really think it's going to be fantastic in my gallery/hallway. Can't wait to pile it up with seasonal pillows.

Although many of my handmade items have begun selling, I DO LOVE giving those long forgotten smaller furniture pieces a whole new life. It is truly amazing the details that can "out" when you paint something off-white.

I've also started attending some auctions....Now isn't that just a blast? An all-day event, but so worth it!

Do you ever run across these little telephone stands? I think it is from the late 50's or early 60's. Don't see them too often.

So good to hear from you : )

Cori
