Have you checked out Craig's List recently? I think with all of the bad things that have happened associated with Craig's List a lot of people are really hesitant to shop that way. As women, we just need to be really smart about it and trust our instincts. I have purchased alot of things for the barn show on Craig's List and have met some really wonderful sellers.
I'm always on the look out for great pieces for my house or the next barn show and I found some really cool things this week.
I bought this really nice antique wicker chair from a great seller. Turns out she's always wanted to do something like the barn sale and so we had a great time chatting about how she can make her dream come true. The chair is great but what I loved most is how out of all the buyers and sellers on Craig's List we met and I was able to help her think about turning her dream into a reality.
I bought this table and chair from a really fun couple who had just downsized from a 4,000 square foot home into a condo. We went to their storage unit and it was full of great stuff. I put both of these pieces in my living room until the next barn show. I never buy anything for the barn unless I absolutely love it, because if it doesn't sell, it may end up in my house!
I'll post some more photos tomorrow of the rest of my purchases. And with any luck it will include a set of Lane Venture wicker I'm going to check out this afternoon!
