Welcome to my Thrifty Finds Thursday
Last Sunday I set up my booth for the first time this year, weather was gorgeous and the flea market was very busy. I had a great day and the day was a big success, I brought back alot of empty containers and was very happy with my sales. Because the flea market has only been up and running for a few weeks, I put an ad on kijiji advertising a hoarder sale (an idea I borrowed from Mandi of Vintage Revivals) and listed the location of the flea market, I also posted a few pics of my stuff including my chalkboards. I told everyone to look for a beige pickup and a red head. You would not believe how many people came to my booth and said they saw my ad. A young couple getting married saw my chalkboards and loved them. They came to my booth and bought all of my white chalkboards and I have been commissioned to make one for their wedding menu. I was so happy they liked my chalkboards and that I can be part of their wedding plans. I am going to have them come over and see some of the other stuff I have that might go with their theme. They are a young couple with the cutest little girl, so I gave them a great price on the menu chalkboard and I will lend them what ever else they need to make their day special
I meant to take a pick of my full truck, but it was dark when I left the house, and then I was so busy I forgot to take a pic of my booth . I set up at the flea market at 6 am so I was pretty tired when I got home. It's alot of work getting everything ready, packing setting up and then taking everythinng down and them bringing what is left home.
here are a few things that I sold
I am so anxious to clear out some more stuff this weekend at the flea market so I can get back to my painting projects. I am slowly making more room in the garage and as far as the basement is concerned, I can actually move around in it and I can see the floor in one room and the carpet in another, so thats good lol
And here are my thrifty finds for this week
Isn't this mirror gorgeous, I got it for a great price, I think the seller thought the colour and a bit of damage made it unsellable, but I saw how beautiful it can be and I was so excited to find it. I can't wait to get started on this mirror. This is one I want to keep so I am thinking I will paint it white and distress it a bit, there is a bit of gold in the purple paint that I am hoping will come through with some sanding.
I picked this cute little table up for a few dollars, yes the top is black, someone (I am thinking a teenager) just painted the top black and left the rest stained. And they did not do a good job painting it. I am going to paint this and maybe distress it a bit. We will add this to the growing list of projects that need to be done.
Last week at the flea market I was so busy I did not get a chance to walk around and see what the other vendors had for sale. I kept seeing people walk by with stuff they had found, and I was like, damm I would have bought that. So this week I am hoping I can drag my hubby with me for a few hours so I can shop a bit woohoo
Happy Picking , Have a great week
