Hello lovelies! Today I’m taking ya’ll on a trip to my booth. For those of you that may be new here, welcome! I have a booth space at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell most of the pieces I blog about.
Let’s start where we left off in November, shall we?
The last time you visited, it looked like this:
Sadly, most of these furniture pieces are still in my booth! Booo! See, it happens to me too! Many of these pieces are taste specific and need just the right buyer to come along. However, I can’t wait for forever for them to show up, so they all got marked down on my last visit. Hopefully, they will sell now!
Thankfully I have been moving my smalls, which has kept me afloat. Most of what is on the furniture pieces have sold.
In December I decided to move things around a bit and brought in a few holiday items…
That little rocker had been painted green and white last Spring and it just sat, which is not the norm for my kids’ pieces, so I took it home and painted the green parts blue. It has sold since then.
If I can find cute decor pieces that match my style like the glass lamp below, I grab them. This was $9.98 at the thrift store and I found the shade at HomeGoods for $12. It sold for $42.
I brought in the green beachy table I shared in December…
I also brought in the black bench…
After Christmas, I removed the few Christmas items and rearranged a few things again.
In January, I started sharing my makeovers in groups, working through an entire thrifty haul piece by piece. This Frenchy wall cabinet below was the first one:
It sold right away!
I also brought in this table from that first haul…
As well as this mirror…
I’m thinking the white serpentine dresser that was in that spot sold, however, perhaps when they were trying to remove the harp that held the mirror, it broke somehow. I brought it home to repair it, but without the mirror, the dresser has been a fantastic piece for staging so it’s a keeper!
This coffee table from haul #2 made its way in also:
I need a few plain painted pieces to add to the mix. A lot of these are too taste specific.
I brought in vintage suitcase #2…
But…on the next trip in, I brought it back home. I just couldn’t part with it!
The white dresser with the wood drawers is still there. I might have to bring the drawers home and paint those too just to get it sold.
I don’t think this was a fan favorite anyway.
This striped dresser has been sitting for a long time! It was one of the first furniture pieces I painted when we moved into our new house.
I thought it would be cute for a child’s room. I never lined the drawers in this one, and I swear sometimes that is what seals the deal! I may have had it overpriced as well. Marking these pieces down should move them.
I just dropped this little end table off on my last visit. It’s white, so it should sell!
I didn’t mention all of the non-furniture items that have sold, but thank goodness for those! They have kept me going! Here’s how my booth looked as I was leaving last week:
The estate sale shelving unit I recently did is out of the photo just to the left. I forgot to get a photo of it.
I don’t put quite as much hustle into stocking my booth as I once did. Sharing two new makeover posts just about every week keeps me pretty busy, so I use my booth more to sell the things I blog about. I still like it to look stocked and fresh though. If I start back with a bunch of white furniture pieces, you’ll understand why!

I hope ya’ll enjoyed this little trip to my booth!
I’m still working on that cabinet with the fretwork and should have it ready to share by Thursday. We are taking the kids to DC for a few days over Spring break so I wasn’t quite able to get it completely finished in time. I will be back here on Tuesday though sharing how I repurposed this set of candleholders from my latest haul:
UPDATE: See how I repurposed these candle holders HERE now!
Have a great weekend! I hope you get to feel the warm sunshine on your face wherever you are! 🙂
