I was really surprised when I went searching for pictures of my latest finds from the treasure trail this month. To be honest there weren’t that many. Then I looked back and my calendar and realized why. This month found me working on projects at home and shopping for things related to those products as opposed to shopping for the booth. That happens sometimes especially since I’ve built up a little surplus and I’m trying to use the things in my inventory closet up before buying lots of new items. I do have a few things to show you though. I took most of these pictures on the run or in the early morning hours when I was unloading from one job to head to another.
The coolest thing I found all month was this wine rack. I found it on a Thursday and hauled it to the store on Friday. It was literally on the cart, not even priced or cleaned yet when a customer wanted to buy it. She was so sweet and bought this piece for her husband as a gift. They were in town at a conference so this was shipped to their home in New Jersey.
As you guys know my customers love all things coastal. How cute is this whale welcome sign?
I found this fish picture, mirror and basket all at the same sale. I don’t think I’ve ever met a basket I didn’t like.
This wire soap dish was really hard to let go of. I love it.
My office looks like something exploded in there…hence the need for reasonable storage solutions.
I’ve already featured the bag of faux apples in several posts this past month. I can’t wait use those vintage cookie cutters in a post I’m getting ready for late November. The copper jello molds were a big hit during the Fall Inspired Kitchen post. I’m looking for a place to put them permanently in the kitchen. I just haven’t found the right spot yet.
I’m seriously in love with this golfers trophy for Most Improved.
I found all of these items at an estate sale. You can tell by the background what time it was. Close to zero dark thirty.
I also found this herb drying rack. I will not be upset if it doesn’t sell. “Herbs leave their fragrance on the hand that nurtures them.” I love that.
I saw this paper mache bird at the preview sale. I swore it would be gone the first day of the sale. But there it was waiting on me.
I found this old cabinet at the same sale as I found the items above. It really needs a base but I put it in my booth unpainted already. It seems like we’ve had a lot of customers lately that want to put their own stamp on pieces of furniture now that so many different kinds of paint are available.
This desk was a non-negotiable as far as painting goes. It was gorgeous and I just couldn’t bring myself to paint it. It’s also already at my booth.
I have another piece of furniture hanging out in my garage that one of my cousins found for me the weekend of the girls only slumber party. It’s really beautiful and could be used for so many different things. I also just picked up a dresser that one of my sisters found last week. It’s such a recent pick up I haven’t even had time to unload it yet. I’m hoping to share finished pictures with you sometime next week. If you guys feel like there is always something going on around here, I feel like that too!
See you back here tomorrow. I’ll share an update of my booth at The Pickers Market.
