Ok, I really need to buckle down and get this blogging on a roll. Since my last post I have quit my cashiers job to focus on my "Junking & Refurbishing". It's been slow going and a little disappointing I'm sorry to say. I have tried on two occasions to sell at my "not-so-local" flea market with no luck. I had it in my head that I would arrive and sell all I had and arrive home elated, but that was not the case. I went back and got a table closer to where all the antiques and vintage wares were being sold thinking this would help, but NO! Oh, people would stop and ohh and ahh over my things but it just seems all they are looking for yard sale items and such...thats ok and all...but I was really hoping I would have better luck. I'm not sure what avenue to take, should I continue trying my luck at the flea market? Try a consignment shop? or what? I really love doing this whole vintage re-furb stuff, I really don't want to have to give it up ( I have a very unsupportive other half riding my back) before I had a chance to really give it a go. I know I'm new and my blog isn't even seen by anyone, but it just feels good to write and get things off my chest...but hey...if by chance someone does run across my little meager blog, please leave a comment or advise if you happen to like junking and refurbishing, I would greatly appreciate any advise. I am finally getting the pictures of my re-furbed shabby-chic mid-century modern sewing chair on here. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint...I love it! I then covered the seat with the prettiest rooster fabric I've ever seen. So I guess you could call it "Shabby-Farm-Chic"? Or not!
Thanks for looking!
