It's Not Pretty


I love going to Malls and Home shows, like Judy Hill's coming up on Thursday. And seeing the pretty things, all displayed so nicely. But there is a "not so pretty" side to this business, and I'm in the muck of it now. Finally everything is clean, and I'll take my first load to Winnie & Tulula's tomorrow.

No matter how you pack it, a trailer or truck full of stuff looks like something right out of Sanford & Son's.

Believe it or not, there is some really cool stuff in there.
Besides cleaning, I've been real busy pricing. I got a package of 250 price tags, and have already gone through them all, and am on my second pack.

Look at these great lamps I picked up today, How cool and retro.
See my pretty price tags on there.

And this is my "office" for pricing in the Garage. I've got a fan to blow on me to keep me cool "kinda"

What a mess
I'm having fun, I'm tired. But I'm on the home stretch. I hope my space is big enough for all this stuff???????

Margo, looks like some great stuff! I love the old cage lights, those would be great out by my pool! Wish I was closer to do some shopping!

Honestly, my hat is off to you and all of the talented junk artists who can dream up such inventive ways to transform objects I would just stare blankly at. I love vintage stuff, but to think of unique altenatives for so many items would have my head spinning!

You are junk masters...all of you!

It's all lookin' good! I wish I could be there! Love the tags. Wish we needed fans on here. It hasn't been out of the 50s lately. Maybe today it will be warmer...

Such wonderful finds! Can't wait to see pics of the booth when you get it done. If I lived close by I would come help you just so I could get my hands on all that great junk!

Margo! I want that green table in the back your truck! OMG! Ummm...I can't remember, I know you're uber busy but were you going to look for wire baskets for me? Vintage fans? I can't remember if I was talking to you about that or someone else...pray you have a ton of fun at Judy's tomorrow...wish I could be there. Seems like there is so much going on...I can't keep up with all of these junkin' schedules! LOL!

I am glad that customers don't see my garage before they see my setup at shows. They wouldn't buy anything....
