Selling at Renningers Kutztown Antique Extravaganza PA

This is one of the items I had for sale at the Kutztown PA Renningers antique extravaganza  this past weekend (end of June). It didn’t sell! I should have displayed it better — it was off to the side. A fellow vendor said I should sell the animals separately so I bagged them up. About 5 minutes later, someone bought the cow for 7.00.

Usually the summer sale is not as well attended as the spring and fall sales. I expected to sell about 600$ but was happy to come away with almost 800$. I didn’t have anything priced over 40$ (except for one quilt) and most sales were $5-10 each. Many vendors said it was the worst they had ever done. The weather was gorgeous! We had one big thunderstorm but that is normal for the summer.

I had some really cute animal pottery. The vendor next to me bought 6 of the pots and then I sold a few more. I had about 10 of them in dogs, mice, pigs, etc. I had them priced at 5.00 each cuz I got a whole box full for 5.00.

This was probably one of the best things I had there. It is an old print of 2 boys playing with their toys from the early 1900s. Someone asked me if it was a circus painting. I said no, it is a print, and this is how boys dressed in the early 1900s and they played with a hoop by rolling it down the street. Times have changed! It did have a good bit of damage around the edges and although it did not sell, it got a lot of attention!

I have a lot of vintage hats right now. I went to an auction where they sold the entire table full of hats and purses and ties in one bid. I bought them all for 25.00. There were over 50 hats on the table. Some of them are showing up on my eBay store now. Click on any of the photos to visit my store or click everythingvintagesteph.com.
THANKS!

Thrift store shopping for J Garcia ties Disney and Scrabble mugs

thrift store shopping

I wasn’t going to stop this week but the thrift store is just down the street from the gym. Had to stop! Glad I did. Everything was 25% off. I got 4 Jerry Garcia ties, 3 other ties, and 2 mugs. My bill was 4.77!  That’s a good day for sourcing for eBay!

These ties are so beautiful. They look like watercolor  paintings. I can usually spot them without even looking at the tags. Who knew Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead) had a designer tie collection? I’ve gotten about $10-12 each for these ties on eBay.

ALIEN neck tie

This Alien neck tie is pretty cool too! The one with the cars and surfboards is a clip on. I will be listing these in the next few days. Today is June 10. CLICK on any of the photos or on EVERYTHINGVINTAGESTEPH.COM to view my auctions. If you don’t see these ties after June 12 or so, they might already be sold!

The mugs are a scrabble mug and a Disney mug. Probably keeping them for myself—unless I have a request!
