Last month I sold 10 of my altered bottles in my antiques booth at Orange Tree
I love vintage bottles and they are really good sellers right now. I say "Right now" because a lot of my customers are "Regulars" and I find that something that is hot now, might not be in a couple of months, because all of my "Regulars" may have already bought one.
I added a waterslide decal to each of them. You can purchase the decals at The Polka Dot Closet Store, or you can make them yourself, the tutorial is HERE. My new sheets of decals have graphics from antique calling cards I purchased at an antique store and from Free Vintage Digi Stamps
I added some ribbon, lace, and sometimes a little bling
I get the corks at the craft store and dye them with Rit brown dye to give them a little age
Here they are all sitting on a mirror tray that I spray painted with heirloom white and then added a porcelain rose I chipped off a damaged nick knack..The tutorial is HERE
I sold 5 trays last month with porcelain roses on them for $25 each. If I do not add a rose I price them from $16-18
In the picture below you can see that I also added a porcelain leaf, I usually add one or two leaves with the rose
So there you go kids...
....Just passing on what's selling in my neck of the woods. I have a few vintage bottles for sale at The Polka Dot Closet
