In preparation for my treasure hunting this weekend at the antique fair, I have been making endless LISTS!!! I have about a dozen customer requests for certain items people have seen in my Etsy shop, in magazines or elsewhere. In addition, I have my own list of what I call my "staple" items that I always try to keep in my shop. These particular items always sell well and fast! You could say they are my favorite tag-sale items that I will never pass up. So I have gathered a list for you of past finds that fly off the shelves. I hope to stock up accordingly this weekend!! Here goes...
|Vintage Candle Holders...|
all shapes, sizes and styles. Painted, distressed
and sold as a matched set...voila!
|Vintage Florentine Trays...|
the bright blues, aquas and greens
tend to be favorites.
|Vintage Ornate Easels...|
painted ivory or white...great sellers.
|Vintage Ornate Frames...|
painted and distressed showing loads of character!
|Vintage Skeleton Brass Keys...|
sometimes just perfect as is,
other times upcycled with a colorful can of paint!
I just sold a set yesterday to a bride who plans
to give them to her new husband...keys to her heart
and soul. How sweet is that?
|Vintage Cane Chairs....|
the cane must be in perfect condition or
I will pass it up. I like to paint and distress
the wood chair adding that shabby rustic touch.
|Vintage Aqua Mason Jars...|
can't keep these in stock if they are priced right!
|Vintage Shabby Foot Stools...|
this one happens to be a milking stool,
but these are great sellers for the rustic farmhouse.
|Antique Bird Cages...|
repainted to a soft white or aqua blue....hot item!
|Vintage Toleware Trays...|
once again, blues and greens are a hot commodity.
I try to find trays that are in fairly good condition
without too many rust spots or scratches.
|Old shutters, painted and shabbied up for the rustic cottage.|
|Vintage Book Bundles tied with ribbon...easy cottage decor.|
Have a great day....
