Wow kids, it’s been a long month with some ups and downs… but I am still here and ready to share more pickin’, paintin’ and junky fun!
First up on our little recap, Greg and I have made the decision to close our last remaining booth, which is at The Picker Knows here in West Des Moines. Personal changes mean that logistically it would be too difficult to continue. Plus, neither of us can really afford to be “on the hook” for the booth rent should we somehow fail to sell enough to cover it – although, I must say at PK that has never happened!
Anyway, at this time we’re planning to continue flipping furniture (and hopefully other junk too!) but will just be doing it without the booth. I’m a bit sad about this… I love so many things about PK!… but it just seems like this is the best path for now. So, May will be our last month in the booth and in all likelihood we’ll probably be out by Memorial Day Weekend. Do check us out in Booth #211 if you are local to the area; The Picker Knows is located at 1208 Grand Ave. in West Des Moines! Hours are 10-7 Monday thru Saturday and 10-5 Sunday.
In other news, we have sold some beautiful and FUN pieces lately and I wanted to share a few of our most recent favorites!
This buffet had a broken leg (which Greg fixed) but a classy Downton Abbey vibe with that pretty swag on the front – this sold to Traci of The Shabby Nest.
We also sold this little chest to Traci – the drawer pulls were beautiful.
This French Provincial dresser was painted in a coffee bar theme when we bought it. It had a ton of personality “as is” but could also be repainted.
This fun little tea table had the prettiest harp design to the base.
And this amazing piece started life as a dresser/vanity (it came with a beautiful tall mirror!) but could also be repurposed as a buffet or sideboard.
And now you are all caught up on our crazy pickin’ life. LOL More soon!
