The Hoard: I've Been Sleeping with a Telescope


First of all, get your minds out of the gutter. Let me backtrack. I live in an older home (built in 1939). 8 days ago, we had torrential rainstorms here in DC. I was awoken at about 12:30 a.m. by...

Another Sign that I Buy Too Much


Fun "Photomatic" pictures from the Central Pier in Atlantic City, 1942. My kinda gal. Six weeks ago, Gina and I met up in Kutztown, PA for a junking weekend. She's a great junking partner because we rarely shop for the...

Back to Blogging!


Gorgeous street signs spotted in Texas Just because I haven't blogged in a long time, doesn't mean I'm not THINKING about it. I have been, believe me. But every blog post I have scheduled in my head is snarky and...

VRS is Expanding! (Or, more accurately, destashing.)


Our new booth at Cannon Hill in Frederick, MD There comes a time in every junker's life when your junk hits critical mass. A good tip-off is when the house looks like a warehouse, the shed is full, the front...

Ask and Ye Shall Receive

We've all been there. You have a bad show. Or the show actually IS bad. Or it rains, or the people in the tent next to you bicker the whole time. Or no one groks your wares. Normally, I just...

Junking on the DL, or Back From Hiatus


My February booth at Chartreuse No, I haven't stopped junking, nor have I abandoned my business, though my lack of blogging may have convinced you of it. Since my parents' move up to Virginia 18 months ago, they are my...

Etsy Meet & Greet (all fun and games)


Earlier this month, etsy announced its 2015 "Home for the Holidays" program. In 9+ global cities, as etsy employees went home for the holidays, they arranged meet & greet events (limited attendance). Of the few in the U.S., one was...

STILL Embracing Etsy (or My Sure-fire Way to Boost Sales)


If you sell on etsy, you know that the most frequent topic in the forums is how to get more sales. Everyone will always tell you "seo!", "great photos!", and "promote via social media!". All are true. I figured out...

The Holiday Booth (or what's left of it)


No secret—and I say it every year—I'm no fan of decorating my booth for the holidays. NO WAY am I buying Christmas year-round at estate sales and the like. The people who do (many of whom I am friends with—you...
