My Buying Trip to Local Thrift Stores

My Buying Trip to Local Thrift Stores
Shop the items that are half price
that day. Go to as many in one
day as possible.

Have a plan! Keep in mind what
your clients will like and can afford.
Also items that look so new
you can give them as gifts as well. That way your not stuck with items.
I believe in finding the best items for the best prices and returning the favor
to your clients and friends and family and still make a profit.
I have also started refurbishing old used furniture,painting them ,distressing  and giving them a new life. I recently bought a hutch for $50.00 and redid the piece in chalk paint
that I made my self {learned on Pinterest} then distressed it then waxed it. Now
people want to buy it for $350.00….Well maybe the next piece…I have to keep this one.
It’s my first piece and I love it. It’s really made me eager to start this new venture!
