28/6/15 - VINTAGE SHOPPING FUN
Shopping is fun. No doubt about that, and being a girl too!
But this was shopping fun with my husband for furniture stock for our Boutique here in Sussex.
It's an early start, not as early as some fairs, and a long day too. We started at 7.00 and didn't get back to Lovingly Made until 4.00! And that was just the start of things!
We then started to unload everything we had bought. John and I then inventorise every item onto our computer accounting system. I then start to sort items into what areas they are, furniture, finds, curios, home and garden.
I then clean and polish our furniture. It is then stock coded, and I then photograph those items going online. Items are placed into its new home or put into our 'stock holding' area. When I get home, I then import the photographs, choose the appropriate ones for online and export to our website and other social media sites. Which can take quite some time.
I think we finally left at about 7.30 and not even having finished unloading. So the following day, we then restarted. It is a great feeling when everything is unloaded and placed out in its new home!
We really enjoy our buying days. It is a great day of haggling with prices and traders. It is knowing what is "trending" in the home market and seeing potential of furniture. I love seeing something that is unloved and turning my hand to restoring something to pure beauty.
Pop by and see what we have in our Boutique.
We'd love to see you.
With best wishes,
