Does anybody else collect too much stuff??!!  Even for your booth, storage, garage, or store???

I know I do!  I've seen the term "Destashing" and I thought I knew what it meant, but when I used it and a fellow junker asked me what it mea...

Etsy Shop or Ebay??

Who else has an Etsy shop?  or sell on Ebay??

I have had accounts with both Etsy and Ebay for years but have not been consistent about posting items for sale. I often compare the pricing to see if it's a better deal to sell online versus selling in person or at my antique booths - or listing on your Facebook store or your website.

Posted on January 12, 2019 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (104)

I shared this info on my #TipTuesday this week on Instagram and FB!  (I'd love for you to follow me there too!) 

Are you a fan of wallpaper?! 

It was huge in the 80s, but this isn't the same look.  It's bold colors and huge floral patterns that seem to be trending!  Who knew?!  But I love it!  Some have referred to it as "Granny Floral", but it's the Jessica McClintock of the new!

Lemon Buffet

Lemon Buffet

This French Provençal buffet had sat in my garage for over a year before I finally made myself drag it out and paint it. I love how it turned out!!!  The hardest part of this project was moving it out of the garage, and then loading it in my truck.

A Makeover to “Chair-ish”

     This was a paint project I did in 2013.  This was a new experience then and fun project. It was my first attempt at using a stencil on fabric with chalk paint and I think it really turned out great!
