A casual blog highlighting my life with kids, grandkids and kitties...Also an avenue to show some items from my etsy shops.
**Please note..The other half of my life is dovoted to helping feral and free roaming cats in Walnut and the surrounding areas. You can learn more and follow our activites there at Walnut Iowa's Feral Cat Program! **
So I took an unexpected trip to the cities today to one of my favorite spots to find fun treasures...honestly, I wasn't too sure I would find anything. Prices are sky rocketing for my vintage treasures...what the heck??? I'm having to do a LOT more searching for items that I can afford to buy and actually resell to make some money. The name of MY game is buy really low and sell pretty low..so you and I BOTH get a good deal. I'm sorry to say, because of increased postage, increased prices on my packaging material, and increased cost in the item, I'm having to increase my prices some. . SHOOT...
My surprise was that while I did find many pieces I wanted to buy but they were priced HIGHER than my normal prices, I also found some pieces that were DY-NO- MITE! Think GREEN....not Eco-friendly green, but "Irish Eyes are Smiling"" green. I hit the jackpot on glassware, music boxes and even a piece of milk glass I've never had before... I found a framed wall print with two kitties...so do I keep it, or do I offer it for sale..???? Keep watching!
PS...Dear Thrift Shop, Who the heck hired the person who is pricing your vintage items HIGHER than the Walnut Iowa Antique shops would price them? Really? I would so be dropping mega bucks in your store if you went back to your reasonable prices...duh!
