I’ve been dreaming of having my very own booth at an antique market. Wouldn’t it be fun to gather goodies and display them to sell? There are SO many of these markets around with so many beautiful ideas too. I would want MY booth to be very special and stand out from the rest!
My mother and I used to decorate the store front of my dad’s pharmacy in Ohio. We had so much fun changing out the displays every month. My mother was and will always be my inspiration! She taught me to grow and arrange flowers, taught me how to sew, helped me learn how to re-purpose things, and most of all how to appreciate the little things in life.
I have so many things in my home now that would sell really well in an antique shop! None, I am willing to part with however! It seems that the things I love others like too. Is that enough to venture in to a retail type business?
It would be nice to have some extra income to support my thrifty habits though! How do you get started doing something like this? Is it worth the time and expense?
I wouldn’t want MY booth to be a copycat of the others. What would make it special and more attractive? Color perhaps? A specialty of some sort? I have way too many favorites to concentrate on ONE thing!
Maybe an Etsy shop? Sell on Ebay? What about the hassles of shipping? I don’t think I would want to spend so much time at the post office!
Just dreaming here this morning. Time to go to work!
What are you dreaming about today?
