April was a month of 'finally there are some garage sales' plus a few church and school garage sales. Whew.
I know many of you who are also resellers look forward to the garage sale season as well to increase your stock. I am fortunate to be a reseller at Village Antiques Mall in Fort Langley BC. Some finds I do add to my own collectibles and vignettes, the majority of finds are for resale.
Part of the fun is finding stock that customers want now. Trends change. Flexibility is important.
Mid-Century Modern is big right now. Its been big in the USA for much longer than in Canada but it is has certainly caught on here.
Interesting to me: before I learned the term 'mid-century modern' I was selling that era but called it vintage kitchen, vintage home decor.
I painted the wicker bird cage (here). I love finding items and furniture that I can paint and then use or resell (as do so many of you). (2012 Painted Furniture)
The collection of items in todays post were found at many different venues, garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores.
What did I do to tweak my finds this month? Cleaned, painted a few pieces, took photos, tagged, put them in my booths and then wrote this post showing a few of my favorite finds in April.
I just added the 'search' gadget to my blog, it lets anyone look for similar topic posts on a blog. Love using it when I want to look something up but can't remember the date I wrote it. Two previous posts I wrote about my experiences as a reseller in an Antiques Mall are (getting started) and (organization).
