Anyone who has an antiques booth, online, or Brick and mortar store would love to sell only big ticket, big profit items. The reality is, the "Smalls" as we call them in
The biz (Groan) make up a large percentage of our sales.
"Smalls" are all the little items we sell to fill up our shelves and fill in around the big ticket items
Over the Holiday I spent a fun day working on transforming some smalls
A small tool box
Two vintage metal frames
Got a coat of white paint and rose prints from an old Avon address book
An Old Avon jar, always a good seller when I...
...Spray the lid heirloom white and lightly distress
An antique mirror went from brown
To a fresh white with rose waterslide decals
A wire boot
Got a coat of white paint and along with the little picture some ribbon and bling
Candle sticks are a great seller...
...When I paint them white and hang a couple crystals on the arms. I get my crystals from Freedom Crystal
And that completed a day of smalls!
All ready for my booth at Orange Tree, nothing is priced over $20
A note for those who might want more details: I prepare everything before I paint by wiping it with a deglosser, you can find it in the paint department. I spray one coat of primer and then 2 coats of Rustoleum Heirloom white. Depending on the piece I follow with one coat of a clear satin acrylic spray or wipe on poly acrylic.
