Too Many Irons in the Fire

So between Ebay, the flea market and my full time job I'm pretty much working 24/7 but being in Mississippi, that is the price of my freedom. It is extremely hard to scavenge here as your dealing with a mostly poor region. There are a few good items to find but I get beat to the good stuff many times due to my full time job. I'm looking forward to garage sale season coming back soon.

My "look for" list is ever changing and sometimes it feels like I'm always starting over but I'm starting to realize there are seasons to various items and we have to roll with those seasons. You can't wait till summer is here to start thinking summer, the time is now to start thinking summer.  Shorts, Shortalls, Capri's, swimming stuff, fun in the sun items.

My universal item is blue jeans, they seem to sell no matter what season. Levi's, American Eagle, Paris Blues, Aeropostale, BKE, Miss Me, Guess and Lucky Brand are always good sellers.

Good lord we are becoming retailers. Yep that happened. Anyway, my post are getting slowed down due to my work load so I may not be posting as often but will do my best.

I wish I could tell you exactly what to go out and hunt for today but honestly it's hit and miss for us too so we are still learning even after nearly 3 years of it. If there was one thing I wish I could go back 3 years and change it would be just to buy perfect items with no flaws as much as possible. The slightest flaw is not worth your time, move on. People are really really picky :-)

When in doubt check the item on your phone, don't waste money buying something your not sure of unless you've got money to waste, I don't.


8 months and counting


  1. I can relate. Between Amazon, Ebay, our three antique booths, and my full-time job, I'm not quite working 24/7, but it's close. Sleeping is overrated anyway.

  2. I hear you Scott and my hat is off to you, your even more spread out than I am so I know your down time is a precious commodity these days. I'm just trying to keep my eye on the prize at the end of this road. I wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors.
