Anyone that has an online, brick and mortar store, or booth, knows what I am talking about. You have a perfect item for sale and it just won't sell!
I have had this table in my booth for 8 months.
Now, lets face it if we all knew what would sell we would all be millionaires, sometimes it just drives you crazy trying to figure it out.
This is A picture of my booth in August
See it there in the back, the brown table, now granted it does not go with the whole pink and white vibe, but everyone said, you can't paint it, this is a "Mersman"
A Mersman is a really good piece of vintage furniture and I guess it is a CRIME to paint it.........Well, Arrest me!
You are all going to have to visit me in jail!
I gave it the full shabby treatment
Vintage paper in the drawer and tassels
I left the feet with the original "Claws" and a little distressing and glaze to bring out the detail
I put it back in my booth today at Orange Tree
I had it originally priced at $125 because that is what the last "Mersman" table in the mall sold for. Then I started the reductions $
85 $ 65 $ 42....I called UNCLE!
I took it home, painted it, polyurethaned it, lined the drawer, added a tassel and repriced it for $65.00
Will it sell??? How long do you think it will take......I suppose it is illegal to put money on this little bet?
I'll let you know!
