Selling At No Place Like Home Again


I have been kicking around the idea of renting selling space at a local antique/consignment shop called No Place Like Home Again for over a year now.  The rent was quite reasonable but I was always reluctant to commit to working at the store 3-4 days per month in addition to my regular employment, blogging, flower gardening and trying to keep a clean house.

I finally took the plunge September 1st.

As I was setting up my sales space, I was reminiscing about some of my past projects.  (These are by far not all of them, just the first batch to arrive at the shop)  I will also be selling off some of seasonal decorations and collectibles.

This idea of adding a little fall to an oil lamp came to me in 2013.

An old country wood plaque was upcycled with French Country Style in this easy project, and the vintage aluminum tray was updated with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  It will make a lovely change or jewelry tray.

  1. Good luck with your new booth space, Carlene! I really need to get one too. We don't have a lot of good shops with spaces near me though.

  4. Wow! What great idea. You should have a booth. I miss having one and have started a few projects and collecting againn to make it happen maybe in the Spring. Too late for the big Fall.

  6. Now you've got the perfect outlet for all your creations, Carlene! I wish I had known you were opening a booth. I just sold a garage full of vintage stuff for pennies on the dollar! Best of luck with your newest endeavor- I know you'll do well!

  10. I think it would be dangerous to sell in a place that you like to shop in. There would go my month's earnings on your cute stuff.
