~Shop with Me?~

We did it!
We finally put all of our my packed up,
*I will use it later*, *can't part with it*
goodies in a consignment shop!

Let me tell you~
it was really, really hard
to part with some of this....stuff!
It took days to get everything priced.
Items such as china, a few of J's cameras, and vintage linens
were all looked up online.
I wanted to make sure the pricing was consistent
with Etsy, other online venues, and area shops!
For many of the items, I included a tag
that told what year, where it was made etc.

It is a cute little shop called the Treasure Box.

And as I look over all the pictures I took
of my little spot in the shop...
They make me want to go buy all my own stuff!

Well what do you know, I'm first for a change, even if I have a bit of catching up to do!

Congrats! It must have been a lot of work to put all this together but it looks amazing. And I want to buy all your stuff too. I'm gonna need a trailer if I come to Tennessee, aren't I? ; )


Jeni said...

Oh my! I love the tea cups! I should come to TN and shop this store!

Hi Misha, I know it's hard to get rid of things like that ---but if you don't use them, why not let someone else who wants them buy them??? Great idea.

Good Luck... I hope you are able to get rid of things you don't want ---and make some money in the process...

I probably have a bunch of similar items that I don't use... I should do the same thing!

Keep us posted.

Isn't it hard to get rid of all that beautiful stuff that you have stored away and don't have room for any more. I struggle every time I have to let some thing go, but I think of the joy it will bring to whoever buys it.

I know it's hard to part with collected treasures but remember less is more (easier said than done). I've been going through all of my treasures trying to make room for my Mom and her things. I'm having a hard time with what to keep and what to let go so I totally get what you're saying.

BTW, I love the teacup with the pretty purple flowers.

I'm a little embarrassed that I kept some of the craziest things as we've been moving stuff gradually to Virginia.

Being in the same house for 26 years lets you s ave all sorts of things that you might "need".... I should have been more ruthless!

Your consignment shop idea is way better than ebay and garage sales!!

Donna said...

Where is the shop? I neeeed the teacup and saucer with the violets. I collect violet china ... it's Feb. flower and my b'day month! You have several other items I adore!!! OMG!!! Let me know where it is located!!

Your stuff is so lovely. I'm sure you won't have any problem selling it.
It is so hard to get rid of stuff. Even if it's just setting in boxes, I think I may want it later. Or one of the kids might want it later.
Crazy, I know!

ain't for city gals said...

You better hurry is you are going to buy it back..it won't be there long! I sell on e-bay and sometimes it is hard to let something go..but onece it is gone I usually don't miss it.

Jeanette said...

All that stuff should sell pretty quickly it is so pretty! I would buy those little bells! They're very cute!!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Awesome treasures, Misha!! I should follow your lead and start cleaning out *stuff* today. I'm the worst procrastinator. Loving your new look here too! -Tammy

Lucy said...

Well now --- hold the train because if you're going to be getting rid of stuff, I want to catch a plane and come out before you do. I look around at my house and wonder what's going to happen to all of my mother's and grandmother's 'stuff'. My kids won't want any of it. My piano is what bothers me the most. I had always said Angie could have it but things have changed there. She lives in DC and I'm sure not shipping it out to her. I told my daughter in law they could have it but not sure she wants it either.


It comes down to this: We can't take this stuff with us and really...what do we care, I guess.

Ann On and On... said...

Maybe you should itemise it for your readers to purchase... it looks like I wouldn't be the only one shopping. Although, I'm sure you're not going to have any problems selling all your precise treasures.

I definitely do the same thing as you...

I missed reading your blog. I have a lot of reading to do. :)

Lynne said...

I too used to have many, many books and "things" of Mary Englebriet. At least I think I see her in and amongst your consignment treasures?

All the best to you for successful sales and congrat's for getting to the "things I won't use anymore" collection.

Someone new will be "over the moon with happy" having found new treasures.

Karen said...

Love your "stuff"! Good luck with consignment, what a great little shop!

Catherine said...

Hi Misha!
Love everything, the porcelain is very nice!i would love to go to that shop! Catherine

A day in my life. said...

I know exactly what you mean.
We had a garage sale a few weeks ago and after we had it all set up I said to my husband, "This looks like a place I'd like to shop!"

Leslie @ Farm Fresh Fun said...

What beautiful treasures! You are so strong to sell them. I need to follow your lead! I lurk here often and always enjoy my visits. Now I get to say THANK YOU by telling you that you were a runner up in my giveaway! Please email me with your address and I'll mail you a small package. Keep cool!
