I adore buying things and I adore selling things. My taste do change with the seasons though which means as much as new items come into my home, an equal number of items leave my home. Someone just yesterday asked me about an item in one of my photos with an interest to possibly buy the item. I'm always open to offers on items appearing on Apron Thrift Girl. I may say no but I also might say yes and would ask you to make an offer. Some of the items I do plan on selling as part of my monthly income so I may say no because from a financial point of view, I'm hoping for the best price I can get. Once I get back onto selling on eBay stalling here my weekly goal is $300 in sales.
Vintage Mechanical Schuco Pick Pick Bird. Sold for $49.99 on eBay.
I am also interesting in buying items. In Sonoma County and the San Francisco Bay Area I'm interested in partial estates, dusty attics, packed barns and anything that you might think I would be interested in. If you have a large number of items I'd be open to traveling throughout Northern California. And yes, I'd be lying if I didn't say that the show American Pickers has been a great influence on this idea. At the end of the day, I prefer digging through boxes rather than shopping from neatly lined tables of collectibles. Just saying.
These are some of the items that I'm especially looking for:
- Mid Century Modern
- Danish Modern
- Swedish Items
- Vintage Fabric
- Vintage Sewing Notions
- Vintage Greeting Cards
- Stoneware Pottery
- Modern & Vintage Books (I have a more detailed list of what I am searching for)
- Vintage books on Graphic Design/Old Fonts/Typography
- Art Work
- Vintage and Modern Craft Supplies
- Vintage Jewelry (will buy broken ones too)
My interest in buying items is both on a personal and business level. I'll be adding another button at the top of ATG with this information so that readers can find it at any time. Besides buying outright from you I can also give you the option of bartering either for items that I find or possibly in return for researching items for you. The request that I get most from people through my Contact Me button is "what is this item and how much is it worth?"
What's on your Thrift Wish List of things that you'd like to buy?
