Getting ready for a sale

Leave a comment

This is going to be a busy week! The small town I live in has an event called Miner’s Jubilee every year and I wanted badly to have a booth set up across from it with my furniture make over’s and crafts to sell. I have a collection going on that seriously needs thinning out before I can move on, because I  am totaly out of space. And of course the collection keeps growing too. 

So I didn’t get around to asking where I can set up for free. I don’t want to invest money to set up a ‘booth’ under my canopy somewhere as that cuts deep into any profit I Might make. So instead I decided to just have a yard sale at my dad’s house, just a few blocks away. It is much easier that way since this is where al of my things are anyway. 

I have my Farmhouse Buffet: Image

And this little stand

and this table



and a black stand, and oh sooo much more! 

I also have a telephone table, which I believe I am going to make into a charging station along with all of the normal yard sale stuff, and collections of items like painted picture frames, and plaques I just made like these:



I want to draw the tourists in and make them all very happy with their purchases, and still have a number of things to get ready. I have a dresser and head and footboards to paint still….So why am I sitting here online, you ask?

I am waiting for morning….with my projects mainly in my dad’s garage, it has been difficult to get motivated to work. I take care of my folks and they often interupt wanting to chat or watch and ask a LOT of questions. But today they left to go camping, so I will have some time alone in the garage. I wish it was cooler right now or I would go work there now. 

Then there are still more plaques to make, some old windows to work on, and hauling a lot over to set up for my sale. To be honest, I will be happy if I can have the dresser done in time to put in the sale. 

Once my sale is over in a week, I will again start collecting items to up cycle, paint, repurpose and have fun with. New projects and new ideas to implement. It will be nice to start again! But there is a ton to do starting tomorrow morning so I am resting up tonight!

Just moved to an old Historic town in Oregon, to be closer to my elderly parents. Sharing a house with my brother that was built in 1890. I have two German Shepherds that love to walk, romp and play, swim and anything else as long as it is with me. My interests are in home decor, gardening, and remaking furniture by repairing, painting and breathing new life into it. Trying to learn all I can about blogging too!
