I have a little announcement for anyone in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. I’m opening my own antiques booth! This idea occurred to me several months ago, but it didn’t feel like the right time then. Then a couple weeks ago I learned about some changes being made at my day job, and my first thought was that the right time had come. I did a little research and ended up signing up for a booth at Vintage Plus More! I’ll be stocking my booth tonight, just in time for the store’s 2 year anniversary party tomorrow.

To be real with you, I have no idea how lucrative this endeavor will be, but I am hopeful. Some of you may recall I attempted selling vintage a few years ago with an Etsy shop. I had a lot of fun with that, but I found that I did not have the time (or patience) to really make it profitable. Particularly with selling online there are so many steps you have to take with every single item: photographing, measuring, writing descriptions, determining postage costs, purchasing shipping supplies, and actually shipping things. It’s a lot. Now the internet of course has the advantage of giving you a potentially worldwide audience, so it’s got that going for it. But I’m really excited to give a brick and mortar store a try! Shopping, especially shopping for vintage home decor, is probably my number one favorite thing to do. So if I can work out a way to make even a little bit of income doing that, I’ll be living the dream.

Here’s an Instagram sneak peek of some of the items I was tagging last night. If you’re in the area I do hope you can check Vintage Plus More out, look for Booth #43! 🙂

Very excited about what I’m preparing for right now. Sneak peek. 😉 #vintage

    The first few bedrooms look great and well decorated, but that last one looks seriously cozy…
