Spring Cleaning

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Did you see my post last week about The Beast, my new junkin' vehicle?  Well, she has been taking an extended spa weekend.  She's getting lots of little tweaks under the hood.  She'll be back this weekend hopefully and will get some more junkin' time in with me.

There weren't a ton of junkin' prospects this weekend, so I decided it was going to be spring cleaning and small projects weekend.  I started my weekend on Friday with a trip to my local salvage warehouse.  That place is SERIOUSLY my happy place.

I was digging through their stock of castors trying to find 4 matching ones for one of my new (antique) dressers.

While I was there, I decided it was time to stock up on door plates for the booth.  I was completely out.  I also picked up a few other goodies.

Junkin' shopping basket - a 3 gallon bucket.

Here's the total haul!

Since I had no plans to attend any sales on Saturday, I decided it was time for MAJOR spring cleaning at the booth.  I has been nearly a year since the last time I did a total booth overhaul.  Mom and I got there first thing when the mall opened at 10A and stayed until 6P.  We took about 45 minutes for lunch at a local brewhouse.  We took almost everything out and found new places for it.  The furniture arrangement stayed about the same, with a few minor exceptions.  If you're curious what the booth looked like a couple of weeks ago - click HERE.

Continuing my spring cleaning trend, Sunday after brunch with the hubby, we tackled the garage.  Everything out!


Excess boxes from when I used to sell a TON of stuff online.

We filled up the back of my truck and my hubby's and took all the stuff to goodwill.

Afterwards, all clean and organized!

Some booth stock.  Time to pick it and take it to the booth!

So, I didn't attend any sales Saturday, but a junkin' friend of mine picked me up 4 small pieces of furniture pictured here behind the Ice Cream maker box.  3 small tables and a metal stool.

What did you guys do this past weekend?


I'm linking up at:


  1. You really got a lot accomplished! Your booth always looks amazing. I'm sorry I didn't respond back to you about the pink plate. I loved it, but then talked myself out of it. I'm trying to be good. lol! I started spring cleanup in the yard Sat. and it felt good! Glad you'll be sharing with SYC.

  2. Wanna come clean and organize my garage? It is not used as a garage so eventually may become a she cave.

  3. Re-arranging booth makes such a difference. My husband had a space in an antique co-op and was often surprised how things would sell afterwards that had been there for awhile. Love all your stuff - my kind of stuff!!

  4. Love your haul of vintage hardware! Thanks for the garage clean-out inspiration! This is something I've needed to do for a few years, but I'd have to set aside a whole month, lol. Your booth is looking awesome! Thanks for linking to Talk of the Town.

  5. Oh my--it must feel so wonderful be all organized and tidy--both at home and at the shop. I'm very jealous, just so you know :) Thanks for sharing your life as a dealer with us at Vintage Charm :)

  6. You subscribe to the same idea of selling space as I do - every square inch should be selling something. I have been doing the same here at home and at the booth. I wish I lived nearby!

  7. Your booth looks great and makes me really want one to sell my stuff! I just sell online now. I am too scared to actually do it though!!

  8. Would love to shop your booth ... my kind of stuff. Also would love to shop your local salvage warehouse. That would also be my SERIOUSLY happy place. Love the old door hardware.

  9. The booth looks great! I want to find a place that sells that old hardware! Here it is so expensive that I can't buy it for myself most times!
