I also got boxes and tubs of games and toys, but I haven't had time to go through them, so no pics yet. Great combination of educational games and toy cars, though. Good, good stuff. Interestingly, I was the only one there for a long time and we got there just after they opened. Some dude did come by and made them an offer of a hundred bucks for everything in the building. They said they'd need to have a little more than that, so he left.
I did go to a couple of other sales, including a church sale with old lady ten-cent pricing and vintage Christmas! I've been having a vintage Xmas drought for the past couple of years, but it really seems to have lifted this year.
As you can see from the above pictures, I'm having a little bit of a space layout issue. I've spent so much time worrying about having enough items (and larger items) in the space, but the layout has taken back seat. Now I feel satisfied with what I have in the space, so I need to work on how it's placed. I've pretty much just been putting things in empty spaces up to now. I have an idea, but I'm not sure how it will work. We'll see, I guess.
I'm holding off on putting any new smalls out, because I'm having a 20% off sale this weekend. Since I'm not going to be focusing on restocking, I'll be looking more at arrangement. I have to confess that I have an unhealthy admiration for the old junk shop owner with stuff crammed into every nook and cranny with no rhyme or reason. I have to find a way to modify that with a little customer friendliness. I never had these issues when all I had was an 8x10 booth!
My other task this week is to get ready for our next sidewalk sale at the Peddlers Mall on Saturday. A lot of what I got from my uncle last week is going into the sidewalk sale--old tools, tons of vintage smalls, jars, bottles, and a bunch of fun stuff. I'm also going to have comics and manga, small furniture, and a ton of books. I'm planning on having eight tables worth of stuff. Go big or go home baby!
If I remember, I'll get some pics throughout the week and of the sale. Content will be pre-planned and somewhat light this week (think bad jokes) due to all the activity. Have a good week.
