Checking In

Welp, it has been about two months since my first day as a re-seller so I thought it would be a good idea to update everyone to let them know how I've been doing. Honest answer: not bad, but not super good either.  Here is a picture of my case about a month ago next to a picture of that was taken yesterday.



















I've sold a lot of Pyrex, but not near as much as I thought I would.  I can't believe the pink gooseberry bowls haven't sold yet!  And I'm a little offended that my knit one, slurp two mug is still sitting on the shelf.  Not really, but I am surprised by it.  It's so stinkin cute!
While these sales aren't huge, they are at sales nonetheless and I am thankful for them!  I mean, really really thankful!  This means that I am doing something right and will be able to continue doing this without having to take out a second mortgage on the house!
This also makes me believe even more that moving into a booth at a larger, busier antique market is the right move for me.
My friend over at Mad Maine Vintage Shop is working on an upgrade too.  Is anyone else changing the way they sell their lovely vintage wares?
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!  I'm going to head over to Colorado Lady to join the party for Vintage Thingy Thursday!  And for my first time I will be heading over to Brambleberry Cottage for Time Travelers Thursday.

  1. Lovely display of vintage Pyrex. I'm sure they will sell with all the shopping everyone loves to do in the fall.
    Happy Fall!

  2. Just be patient. You will definitely sell the Pyrex. It is getting very popular again.

  3. Good for you...keep it up and like LV said, the Pyrex will sell. I've been and out of the junktique dealer business alot over the years, and you are right about being in the right place. I've found that figuring out the right time for 'whatever sells' is the hardest part. I'd love the KnitOne SlurpTwo cup...being a knitter and all. Also love the Owl on the bottom shelf. Thanks for visiting my VTT post at CITexas Gal. Come again soon.

  5. Wow - you have some stellar Pyrex! And by comparing pictures, quite a bit of it sold. You bet it will all be gone by Christmas. I have sold every piece of Pyrex I had in my booth since I started. I am saving some of my better pieces for my new booth - gots to have some welcome-to-my-new-booth candy :-)

    PS: Thanks for the shout-out!
