I’ve been out sourcing a lot lately! Hitting up as many estate sales and thrift stores as I can each week. It’s not always easy waking up at the crack-of-dawn on a weekend to trek 30+ miles out to an estate sale and not really be sure that you will even find anything good. That said, I DO love the hunt and I’ve come across some pretty cool finds already this year.
I’ve been posting stories from my estate sale trips on Instagram. If you are interested in seeing where I source my vintage treasures, follow me there @mendezmanor.
The size of an item is what usually determines whether it will end up in my online shop or my booth. Shipping charges can be so high on large boxes, so for the most part, I try to stick with items 12 x 12 or smaller for online. The condition of an item is also a determining factor. If the condition is at all questionable, it typically ends up in the booth. I feel better about selling those items if the buyer can check them out in person first.
Either way, there’s lots of fresh vintage stock both online and in my space at Pomona Antique Mart. I’ve also moved some things around and have new displays in place. My mind is on warmer weather and sunshine these days so I’ve been collecting lots of great items for the spring!
