Stocked and spruced up and ready for the Summer Sidewalk SALE at STARS!!

Stars BIG ‘Summer Sidewalk Sale’ starts Friday, August 31st and runs through Monday, September 3rd; Labor Day.

This is really one of the BEST sales of the year at Stars.  LOTS of vendors bring in ADDITIONAL inventory to set up on the sidewalk outside.  Don’t miss this sale!!

BOTH of my booths are stocked to the hilt; and as always, everything in my booths is 50% off during the sale.  Last chance to purchase my beach decor items from my wall space.  After the sale I will be converting the space to Fall decor.

I have added a few little ‘hints of fall’ to both booths . . .  just to get you in the mood for fall.  (Not that anyone needs to be enticed to ‘think fall’ after the record HOT summer we’ve had!)

Lots of vintage hobnail milk glass vases and dishes added recently; as well as regular and gold rimmed milk glass.

Vintage and upcycled beach decor.  Big surag starfish, painted white and glittered.  Little jars filled with tiny seashells or pretty beach glass.  Shells mounted on wood posts and jars.  Candle lanterns and lamps.  And of course, Mermaid crowns!!

Vintage picnic baskets, bar stool, ‘breakfast in bed’ tray, wreaths, cubby shelves, trugs and wall decor.

And that is just my little wall space!  On to my 10’x10′ booth!

No such thing as ‘too much’ when it comes to my booth!!
Vintage Fire King gold rimmed milk glass dishes and vintage Ironstone dishes are restocked and always plentiful.

Both Stars Mall are open 7 days a week, 11am – 6pm.

Stars Tour: SALE! July 12-16, 2018

Seems like it’s been forever since I’ve posted pictures from the other booths at Stars.  With the upcoming store-wide sale, it seemed like a good time to do so.

SO MUCH great stuff is all the booths!  I’m going to let the pictures do all the talking.

And now for a quick peek at my two booths; for which, as always, EVERYTHING is 50% off during the sale.  I just added a bunch of new inventory too!

P1360204

My ‘big’ booth.

Vintage and reproduction little milk bottles are perfect for serving beverages in at your summer party.

Pretty vintage gold dishes.

Vintage suitcases, hat boxes and picnic baskets.

My very favorite style of vintage dishware; white Ironstone with scalloped edges.  I have a collection of vintage Johnson Brothers English Ironstone at home that I use.  The ones I have stocked at Stars are from various manufacturers, some from England and some with no maker’s mark.  There are over EIGHTY of the little ‘dessert’ size plates.  I got a GREAT deal on them, and as I am in the habit of doing, I’ve passed my savings along to the buyer in my pricing.  Regular price on the dessert plates (no maker’s marks) is $2.00 each.  Get them for just $1.00 each during the sale!!

I’ve decided to part with some of my personal collections.  My ceramic hand collection and my Ironstone Lion’s head soup tureens (two sizes) and ramekins (two sizes).  The lion’s head ramekins are TOO cute!

Yes, my big booth IS jam-packed!

As is my wall space!  Happy Shopping and Happy SAVING!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IT’S TRUE!! The store-wide STARS Sale has been extended!!

Normally I wait until AFTER a sale is done before I go in to re-stock.  Given that the sale was supposed to end this Monday, I packed a bunch of newly refinished furniture in my car on Sunday, to take in on Tuesday.  THEN, I got an email from the owner, announcing that they’d decoded to extend the sale.  Well, I was NOT going to unload all that stuff (2 coffee tables, 2 night stands, a foot stool, a bar stool, a small stool and a small side table!) back into my garage only to have to load it all back up again in a few days!  I just decided “What the heck!  I’ll just take it in on Tuesday anyhow!”

So, NOW there is a bunch of BRAND NEW inventory in my booth that is 50% off through Sunday, June 10th when the sale ends.

My ‘grand idea’ to completely change out my second space has been put on hold for a while.  I hurt my OTHER knee this year, working in my garden.  sigh.  This one hurts SO much more than when I hurt my right knee the last three years.  And I was being SO CAREFUL in hopes of avoiding another ‘gardening injury’ this year.  Alas, my old body just ain’t what it used to be and I’ve just GOT to slow down!

I spent the better part of May, sitting in my recliner with my leg up and ice on my knee; reading or watching TV and changing out the ice pack for another one from the freezer when it got too warm.  Two trips to urgent care and two steroid shots and I’m still ‘limping along’. Pfffffffffffffffftttt!!!  All that extra work of completely changing out my wall booth is just too much for right now.

I HOPE to get back to the original plan soon.  For now, I left most of the same stuff in the wall space booth and will change it up a bit more next week, after the sale.  I added a couple of pieces of furniture to it and re-worked it a little for now though.

Added some new items and re-arranged a bit in my bit booth too.

EVERYTHING IN MY BOOTH IS 50% OFF DURING THE SALE!

IT’S SALE TIME AT STARS!

I just restocked my booth with TEN boxes of inventory; including Spring and Easter decor and gifts.

Just in time for the upcoming FIVE DAY sale at Stars Antique Malls

The sale begins Thursday, March 1 and continues through Monday, March 5, 2018.

STORE HOURS ARE 11am – 6pm; 7 days a week

And, as I am in the habit of always doing, everything in MY booth will be 50% off during this sale.  Price tags show the regular price; discount will be given at check-out.  Look for the sale signs in the other booths for the discount that other vendors are offering.

And now a peek at ‘The Goods’:

Vintage and handcrafted Easter decor and gifts.

Some ‘general’ spring decor . . .  bird cages, nests and eggs, terra-cotta pots, cloches and little birds with crowns.

Grey faux concrete and wood decorative finials.  (details on how I did the faux concrete coming soon!)

Always have plenty of these items stocked in my booth: vintage Ironstone and Milk Glass, vintage and upcycled cloches, crowns, cake stands, vintage mason jars and upcycled bottles.

White furniture.

Of course, aqua furniture!

P1350237

And ALL OF IT HALF OFF FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS!!

Final ‘pre-market’ post.

It’s almost time!!!!

My car is already loaded.  The kids (my son and daughter in law) are helping me load the U-haul tomorrow evening, and Thursday morning we deliver to the Rebel Junk Marketplace show at the Washington County Fairgrounds.

A couple of quick pictures of some last minute items I just prepped for the show.

Several different colors of REAL dried Hydrangea.  (from MY garden!)

Shabby chic square metal birdcages.  You can see what they originally looked like in the upper left hand picture.  I dry brushed them with a soft white paint, originally just as a base coat and prep before spray painting them white and distressing them.  I decided the the dry brush looked so good that I didn’t need to do the extra work!

LOVE these red and white lace edge metal cake stands.  (I love cake stands in general though!  I have a personal collections of 8 of them!)  They are so much fun to work into booth displays; for adding height or emphasizing a certain item.

P1340655

Lots of assorted glass bottles and vintage jars headed to this show.

I’ll be spending all day Thursday and Friday setting up my double wide booth.  Hoping to get done in time to take photos before the early bird shopping starts on Friday evening.   (I did NOT accomplish this last year.  sigh.)   And I’ll TRY to post some photos when I get home Friday night to give you locals a preview.

I’ll for sure have time to post pictures next week, after the show for those of you who are not local and can’t make it to the show.

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE SHOW!

And DON’T FORGET to ASK for your 20% discount!

You MUST GO to this show!!!

REBEL JUNK VINTAGE MARKET is coming to Hillsboro, February 2 & 3.  Mark your calendar to save the date because you do not want to miss this one!!

23517418_1920811521268331_1508648802569568276_n

Yes, I will be there with a ‘double-wide’ booth, jam packed with all my VERY BEST treasures.  I’ve been saving my favorite items all year to bring to this show.

You know my motto, “Good stuff.  GREAT prices.”

In keeping with that spirit of getting good stuff at great prices:

Mention that you read about the show on my Facebook page OR my blog and receive 20% off your entire purchase in my booth.

P.S. Bring CA$H.   While many of the show vendors do have smart phones and apps/ devices that allow them to take credit or debit cards as payment; I DO NOT.  I still just have a regular old ‘dumb’ cell phone and am only able to take cash or checks.  Sorry.
(I learned the hard way last year that a lot of people don’t even CARRY checks anymore!)

There IS an ATM in the front lobby of the building if you forget; BUT, be prepared to wait in a long line if you need to use it.  I heard there was a line at the ATM all day at last years show!  You have been forewarned.

Children are, of course, welcome at the show and admission is free for kids under 12.  BUT, I feel the need to mention that there is a very ‘packed crowd’ at this show; and little ones are not going to be able to see much of anything except for the ‘back end’ of all the adults who are in front of them.  I felt really bad for all the kids I saw at last years show, just staring at a ‘sea of butts’ in front of them.  PLUS, many of the booths do not have wide enough aisles to accommodate a stroller.  So, for their sake and your own, leave the kiddos at home with dad or a sitter and you will BOTH enjoy the day more.

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE SHOW!!
