A New Venture

Well, I finally got sick of all the stuff in my storage building.  When a new flea market opened up here in town, I rented one of the first booths.  My booth has now been open about two and a half weeks, and I am pleased to report that things are selling very well!  My whole goal is to get things sold, so for antique items, I research prices online and then take 10-20% off that and so far it has been working.  I can't believe how much has sold so far - all of it small stuff - mostly kitchen items.  I have had to take new stock up to the booth at least twice a week so far.  Can't wait to get all of this stuff cleared out of storage!


  1. Congrats on the new venture and so happy to hear its working out for you.

  2. Way to go! I am so on the fence about renting a booth for my stuff. Keep up posted, I would love to hear/see more details about having a booth space :)

  3. YAY I'm glad the booth is working out well!

    If only they could open up a flea market like that near my house!

  4. Hi Michael. Merry Christmas. Hope you've had a good year. I've missed your blog posts. Hope all is well.

  5. You left a comment on my blog today regarding faux wood floors and how you made yours look like stone. Just wanted to pop in and say Hi and thanks for the nice comment!
    I was reading about your booth at the local flea... I'd love to do this! I've always wanted to do something like it and it seems like we did rent a space about some 20 yrs ago... But I think it would be wonderful to do on a regular basis...
    Nice to meet you
    And Happy new year!
