Blogust Day 8
Retail therapy is cheaper than real therapy!
I heard a quote today that I am adopting into my favorite mantra’s. Wait til my husband hears that this is why I love to shop!
What do I shop for? I shop for my collections, and items to resell in my flea market booth, located in the Pavilion Building at the Colorado Springs Flea Market. Open Saturday and Sunday from 9 – 3, and by appointment only Wednesday – Friday from 10 -2.
I collect books. I joined a Book Club Challenge this year through Good Reads, where you read 52 books in one year based on the 52 + prompts they give you. I think I have read 21 books so far this year. Thats the most I have ever read.
Currently, I am reading Green Rider by Kristen Britain and Crazy Faith by Michael Todd. I try to read a non-fiction and a fiction book simultaneously.
I also collect blankets, pillows, journals, designer paper, and home decor. I love buffalo plaid, llamas, all things Rae Dunn, vintage and antique.
For my resell booth, which is a crafty boutique, I sell vintage, antique, and whimsical gift items and furniture and crafty items related to papercrafting, scrapbooking and card-making – stamps, dies, stencils, inks, ephemera, embellishments, etc.
It keeps me busy
No truer statement than the one above to tell to my husband
Keeping it retail…
