I couldn't believe when I found this wire sculpture kit from 1972. It's so wonderfully retro and still have all the pieces and instructions! I plan on actually trying to make it, so we'll see how I do.
This owl trivet ended up being a little bit more than I would normally spend. However, people still seem really into owls here in Dallas, so I have high hopes that he'll sell quickly.
I love this piece! It's a shiny brass/gold wall hanging. The ship is awesome and it looks really cool in person. I think this will go pretty quickly too.
I found a soapstone donkey a couple weeks ago at a little thrift store. He was a weird yellow color, so I passed on him, then regretted it of course. But last week, I found this little white guy for about a quarter of the price of the funky colored one. It was just meant to be.
I can't even take credit for finding these two. My mom found these for me. They were made by Cameo Creation. I can't find a definite date for them; I've found ones ranging from 1900-1960, but it doesn't really matter to me. They're interesting and I know someone will love them.
This was my best deal of the week. It's an etching made by Wei Tseng Yang titled "The Butterfly and the Camellia." It's made of sterling silver, copper, and inlaid with 24 kt. gold. It's in beautiful shape. The thrift store didn't know what they had hiding behind a bunch of empty frames, so I got it for a great deal, and that always makes me happy!
I'm needed some advice and encouragement from others who run booths in antique malls. I've only sold about 5-6 items since opening 2 weekends ago. I went Monday through Friday without selling a single thing. And now I'm completely stressing out. Is that normal? Is reselling either feast or famine? Someone please reassure me so I can stop obsessing over if I'm even going to clear my rent this month.
Be sure to become a follower! I plan on hosting a couple giveaways soon, including an original piece from my Etsy shop, and you don't want to miss out! For more info on what I'm selling, check out my post.
