With Style Treasures

thrifted, flea market, antique store booth, thrift finds
Happy Fri-YAY! I hope you've had a great week! Today, I'm sharing a little side project of mine and one of the reasons why the blog took a backseat over the past couple of months. I have been a thrifter for years and years (literally since I was a little girl). I feel like I have a pretty good eye and I can often find the gems at the thrift store. I always see things that are great finds but I don't necessarily need it for my home or I already have something super similar. 

Back in 2021, I started an Instagram account, @withstyletreasures, to sell some of my finds to friends via the app. I had a little bit of luck but it really wasn't super successful so I put that venture on hold. I say I put it on hold but I was still accumulating items that I hoped I could sell one day. I have always wanted a booth an antique mall but it's a big investment to get that started. But, at the end of 2022, I decided I wanted to give it a shot so we started asking about spaces at our local shops downtown. At first, there wasn't anything available. My sweet husband kept checking back for me and we finally scored a book shelf at Flea Marketeers. A book shelf wasn't my original plan at all, I wanted a whole booth but it felt like a really great starting point to see if I could be successful.

Once I saw this bookshelf, I was pleasantly surprised to see how much space it actually had. We paid our first month of rent in the morning and by the afternoon, we already had it filled up with lots of treasures!

The craziest thing about this first day was that I sold something within my first 30 minutes of setting up and it covered my entire next month's rent! I took that as a sign that this was the right next step.

My booth... bookshelf... whatever you want to call it, is filled with a curated collection of treasures. A lot of vintage, boho, home goods, kitchenware, baskets, mirrors, and more. Basically all of the things that I really love! I have also really enjoyed theming out the space but including holiday related pieces. This month I have been adding pops of pink, flowers, red, and hearts, of course!

If you are in the downtown Asheboro area, be sure to stop by my space at Flea Marketeers! Also, please follow along and tag me in your purchases, @withstyletreasures, on Instagram.
