The best thing about ReSelling at a Local Venue at the moment (besides not having to ship inventory) is the ability to buy practically anything I want. My space is 180 square feet (I think) which gives me the freedom to bring in large pieces of furniture. I am slightly envious of larger spaces that can fit heaps of furniture. For now though, I'm happy with what I have. When I brought this Credenza in yesterday, I had to remove 2 pieces of furniture and bring them home. But.....I wanted this piece to shine and take top priority in my space. Some of you may have seen the Mod Sonoma Facebook mention about this yesterday.
I found this on Friday, even though it was pouring rain. I got to the sale around 5:30, signed up on the list and took shelter from the storm until the sale opened at 9 a.m. I was third in the door and when I spotted this Danish Moretti Sideboard, I quickly slapped my little Sold sticker on it and continued through the house. It was a delightful sale, full of items from Denmark.
Dave and I picked it up on Sunday and took it straight to the Antique Society.
I'm not sure if I'll get a larger space. I'd love the option to have more furniture but I'm not sure I want the added cost every month. Of course in my heart of hearts, I simply want a store but it's not the right time for that. And I know there are lots of cons that go along with the positives of ones own shop. Still a girl can dream and dream and dream.
Last night actually I had a very vivid dream of finding a small old warehouse that was going to be demolished. I walked in and fell in love with it. It was going to be super cheap and had so much potential. There was space for furniture, a place to have a small shop, a workroom for working on projects and upstairs I went crazy with thinking about a restaurant (that someone else would rent from me and run). It was silly, but lovely at the same time. I woke up with a giddiness that comes along with exciting dreams like that and thought ahead to the future.
