Pick a Little, Talk a Little Blog Shop: Marketing Your Wares

I just returned from a local "pick."
A friend asked if we'd like to look
 through some things they were
trying to sell from an estate.

Unfortunately they called us after
they had a yard sale over the weekend.

There was basically nothing left.
But, since the money was going to
their daughter towards a mission trip,
we "found" some things we might be
able to sell in our booth.

 These are things I do not normally
purchase for Bella Rosa.

Vintage retro ...
Cookie jar
"Repro style" carnival glass
Fiesta bowl
Pyrex Mix Bowls
Oil/Vinegar Cruets
Hmmm. This is making me
think I should add another
category to my current shop!

Things are kind of tough
in the antique biz with the
slow economy. I'll have to post
about that topic another time...

Right now I am linking up with

Today I'm sharing my latest finds

Then there is also my Etsy shop.
I have enjoyed Etsy.
It is fun meeting new
people through this website
and it helps me get the word
out about my store.

If you are a shop owner,
tell me more about how you
find inventory, move inventory,
and how you advertise.
I'd love to hear from you!
Enjoy the day!

You always have such beautiful things -- try not to think about the goodies that got away at that yard sale! Love those salt and pepper shakers you have!
