HAPPY SHOPPING!

HAPPY SAVING!!

FINDINGS: Ginormous white wicker bird cage

Gotta LOVE finding items that don’t need any work done to them!

P1220321 Check out this huge white wicker bird cage I just picked up.

P1220325Measures 14″ x 14″ x 30″ tall!  All it needed was a good hosing down to remove the dust.

P1220323The bottom slides all the way out, as do what I originally thought were 2 ‘shelves’; since they were placed at different heights in the cage when I bought it.

P1220322When putting it back together after it dried, I realized that BOTH of these were ‘floor grates’ and meant to be placed side by side at the bottom of the cage; and NOT 2 shelves, as they had been displayed in the thrift store.  DOH!

Took this cage to Stars just in time for the BIG SALE, which runs through Monday, March 7th.  EVERYTHING in my booth is HALF OFF during the sale!

Changing things up at Stars – MAJOR SAVINGS ALERT!

After a couple of “not as good as I’d like them to be” months ($ale$ wise!) I’ve decided to give up my second space at Stars.    It was supposed to only be temporary anyhow, until a bigger space became available.  There are so few of the big spaces though that they don’t become available very often.

But, I’m glad I did the 2 spaces for a while because now I know that I can keep that much space filled!  One bigger space, as opposed to 2 separate small ones will allow me to be more creative with my displays and bring in bigger items.  I’m DYING to put a twin bed with a net canopy, piles of  vintage chenille bedspreads and pillows made from old quilts!

We’re required to give 60 days notice to move out of a space, so I’ve got 2 months to sell down my inventory in the second space.  And to that end I am putting EVERYTHING ON SALE AT 40% OFF!!  Seriously!  I’m not ‘pulling out and saving anything’.  The only, and very FEW exclusions will be the small number of items that already had a red ‘price reduced’ tag.

AND I will continue to bring in NEW product as things sell down.  Of course, I’ll not be adding too much to the wall space that I will eventually be vacating; but I’m not going to let valuable selling space sit empty.

Sale signs will be posted in my booth and the discount will be taken at the register.  Don’t hesitate to remind the cashier that my items are 40% off.  They DO keep a list of which vendors are having sales, but with that many vendors it can get confusing.  So feel free to politely inquire as they ring you up.

It felt SO good to take out the Halloween stuff today and rearrange and tidy up a bit!  And both spaces are looking great (if I do say so myself!  hehe)   I’ll probably let things ‘sell down’ for at least a week before I add more items.

IF you can’t make it in to Stars right away for a certain item, you CAN buy it over the phone with a credit/debit card; and pick it up later in the week.  I have NO IDEA how fast/slowly things will go!  I never really have ‘sales’ at Stars!

I will keep the blog ‘up to date’, showing you what new items I’ve added here in the blog.

I’m toying with the idea of ‘skipping Christmas’; and not bringing in Christmas specific product.  I have MUCH less leftover from last year than I thought I had.  And Halloween didn’t sell worth a darn!  Just might not be the best venue for ‘holiday’ decor.

And just not sure I want to distract shoppers from my ‘regular’ items???  Does that make ANY sense???

DOH!  I forgot about those couple of metallic fall pumpkins!

So if you’ve never made the trek to my space at Stars, or need a  good excuse for some shopping therapy . . .  NOW is the time to do it.

40% OFF EVERYTHING IN BOTH MY BOOTHS AT STARS, NOVEMBER 1st – JANUARY 3rd.
