I have been slowing down on my furniture purchasing because items are not reselling right now because everyone is focusing on christmas. So I will be working on the items i already have and will be posting them for sale after Christmas. I did pick up a vintage door push the other day, I have been eyeing them at antique sales, but they were always for sale for 200.00 or more, so when I saw one for sale on kijiji for 20 dollars I jumped on it. It is a little rusted but that just makes it more unique, the owner told me he bought it in Manitoba 35 years ago, i wonder where it originally from, if it was on a store door. If only some of these items could talk and tell me their history, it would be great to know their history. I will definetly be installing this on my screen door when we move back to Ontario, for now i will just keep it on the wall and admire it.

I picked up a very cheap cabinet to store all of my precious Tobey jugs and bulldogs, I think the cabinet would make a great display cabinet for my store when we move back to ontario. I have new handles for it as the ones on it are too modern for me. I picked up the white candle stands for 2 bucks do you believe that. On the hunt for candles to fit them, can't not believe how expensive candles are, looking for a deal.Got rid of the bulky coffee tables and end tables and cheap TV Stand, by adding a few distressed items and white furniture it has really brightened up the room. Found a cool trunk to use as a coffee table, took hubby a while to get used to it. He is used to the traditional livingroom look and does not have my vision or my passion for junk and old discarded items but he is slowly coming around. I have updated my bedroom as well a piece at a time, the room is so small I decided to decorate with mostly white in the room and it has really opened it up. I found an amazing deal on a coverlet and shams and pillows but am going to wait till the winter is over to use it, because little miss maggie sometimes runs in from playing outside in the wet snow and heads right for the bed. And because the coverlet is mostly white i don't think I want her little paw prints all over it. With my limited space now because the garage is full and hubbys precious motorcycle is in there now too. i have a very small space in the basement to work, I can only work on small projects over the winter. I have to clear out some room in the basement as well and a few trips to the flea market to sell some items is definetly needed. The indoor flea market just started up last weekend, so I am going to wait a bit to see how busy it gets. Loading everything up and hauling it there to only bring it all back if it does not sell is not fun. I have some large items on kijiji so we will see how that goes. check out the items at the bottom of the blog to see my items for sale.
