I'm so excited!! Today I was going to blog about either our trip to the "Heartland Festival", our 4th of July weekend, or a new recipe that I created today...but...that'll have to wait. So here I am, sharing a couple of them with you!
As some of you may or may not know, I use to be an antique's/collectibles and vintage clothing dealer. I use to have a booth in our local antique mall. It was very fun, considering I really love it all! I closed up shop last summer due to the recession and not having the time to dedicate to scouting new items, since I now have babies. Try hitting up an estate sale with a baby and a 2 year old. It's just not happening! Besides, my prioirities have changed. I'm more focused on my children, motherhood, and learning to be quite the homemaker :D
I've saved a lot of my stock. In case I plan to re-open, sell at flea markets, or anything of that sort. As some of you may also know, I've really been on the decluttering rampage, to simplify our lives. Well, lately I've been coming up with some really great ideas of what to do with my stock and have finally found something that suites me perfectly. I'm going to have a "Vintage Lounge" in my home. One of our rooms is going to be cleared out for an evening. It'll be invite only, with a wine bar, speakeasy or poetry reading section, and racks of vintage clothes, shoes, purses, knick knacks, etc. for sale. Two of my girlfriends have agreed to join in so that we can mix it up. They're on the decluttering rampage too, so this works out so perfect for us all! I'm really excited about this and hope that it will be a success! Oh please wish me luck!!
The second thing I want to start up is for all my apron loving friends out there in blogworld.
I would like to host an "Apron Swap". I can either pair you up, or we can do a "Trade Classifieds" - where you post what you have (apron-wise) and what type of apron you would like to trade for. This would be for aprons you already own (vintage, new, childrens, etc.) and would like to trade. We can post pics in a flick'r group for the classifieds. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love aprons! I would like to get some feedback and take it from there.
My third project that I'm looking into is to begin a local Crafter's Guild. This one seems like it would be very time consuming at first, however, once we get a Board of Trustees, or whatever it is that Guild's have, then it may get easier. I want to help network our local crafter's and hold bazaar's, since we currently have nothing like this right now in our small city. This one is still up in the air. Hmmm....so much to think about!!
These are my idea's this week- lol! I just felt that if I put it out there, maybe something will click. What to do, what to do???
