Well, I guess the customers at Stars prefer the ‘new blue’ too! Everything I painted that color has already sold! Here’s the rundown:
I found these gorgeous bubble glass knobs at Home Goods a while ago. I NEVER go out and buy specific knobs for a specific project. I buy them when I find them at the right price and always have a stash of them to select from. The old original knobs get added to the stash as well. These just happened to have one knob missing; so only five instead of a set of 6 . . . and consequently at a reduced price!
I must have made the ‘right choices’ because it sold from my space at Stars in just over a week!
Painted this pair of end tables with the new blue as well.
I almost always price everything ‘individually’, makes the clerks job much easier and saves them and ME time. Because IF you price items as a ‘set’ you can BET that half the people who look at it will want to know if they can buy just ONE!! Then the clerk has to take time to call me and ask IF I will break up the set and what would the individual prices be . . . . and 9 times out of 10, the customer will NOT buy even one of them!!
So, save everyone involved a lot of time and trouble and price items separately. UNLESS you absolutely insist that they be sold as a set. In which case, BE SURE to make a note of that on the price tag.
For example I found a pair of matching twin size chenille bed spreads. Chenille is always hard to find and I have NEVER found two that match. So, since this is such a rear find, I want them to be sold together, so the new owners can really enjoy their ‘rare’ vintage find.
So, all of these items sold within WEEKS of putting them in my booth. Now I need to find more stuff to paint. And that ‘might’ involve bringing some of the ‘white stuff’ currently in my booth home to RE-paint! Haven’t been finding much furniture lately on my thrifting adventures.
