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!

Filthy old hat box / carrier

Found this GRUBBY old hat box a few weeks ago at Salvation Army, on half price day.  Honestly, if it hadn’t been half price, I’d have passed on it; it was THAT FILTHY!  But the inside was surprisingly clean.

It was in pretty good shape, other than all the grime.  Seriously, it looked like it had been stored in a car mechanics workshop!  I spent a good two hours trying to get it clean.  sprayed it with 409 and scrubbed.  Sprayed again and let sit, then scrubbed again.  Got out my handy-dandy bleach pen and ran it along all the stitching and let it soak for a while and got out an old tooth brush to scrub some more!  Managed to remove several layers of gunk, but it was still fairly grubby.  Time to bring out the SPRAY PAINT!

After several coats of spray paint, it was ready to go to my space at Stars.  Next time??????  From how much work it took for me to clean this baby up, I’d probably PASS on one that grubby in the future.  If I spent that much time on ALL of our purchased product, we’d never make any money!

But it really does look GREAT with all the other white stuff I currently have in our space at Stars.
