Welcome back to my Let’s Go Junkin’ Series! It’s summer and that means it’s a great time for hitting up all those yard sales, flea markets, antiques shops and estate sales. Most junkers and collectors are pros at going treasure hunting and thrifting, but a lot of us often forget about (or ignore altogether) the online auction market. Many collectors just aren’t familiar with any online auctions other than Ebay, or perhaps they may be a bit intimidated by other online auctions which feature high end and expensive antiques and collectibles meant for “serious collectors.” Nevertheless, there are some really great auction sites online that offer affordable and unique vintage items and antiques. Today we are going junkin’ around the world from the comfort of home by exploring the online auction market.
Let’s Go Junkin’!
Hi friends! It’s time for some more great virtual junkin’ as part of the”Let’s Go Junkin'” series here on my blog! Today’s guest is Becky, antiques vendor at Vintage Market in CA. I connected with Becky years ago when I first started blogging. We shared a love of Scottish Terriers and all things vintage! Last year I was so happy to reconnect with such a kindred spirit on Instagram, and I have enjoyed seeing all of her personal decorating photos as well as all of the amazing vintage eye candy in her booth that she shares on her account Sweet Cottage Dreams. I invited her to share a little more about herself and her spaces at Vintage Market In CA. It is my pleasure to have Becky here today!
Hello! I am honored to have been invited by Amber to be a guest host for “Let’s Go Junkin'” on her beautiful blog. Let me introduce myself! My name is Becky and I am a vintage and antique dealer in a beautiful shop located in Turlock, California. The shop is called Vintage Market and I have been selling there for nearly 4 years. I started selling vintage items on eBay in 2001 and then on Etsy a few years later. Over the years I have sold in other shops, however I am down to one shop now, which is easier to manage than being in multiple stores.
Hello my junk loving friends! Vintage Market Days has just announced their Columbus dates for April 27th-28th and I could not be more excited! My mother and I attended Vintage Market Days in October and it was nothing short of amazing. We still talk about all the treasures we regrettably passed up, and the beautiful booths!
Today I will be sharing some pictures from our trip and giving you some information on the event. I think you will be making plans to attend the next show near you after you see all of the beautiful vintage displays and merchandise. What is on your junkin’ wish list for spring?
