One thing I have learnt is how varied the stalls are - one VG I went to had loads of vintage fashion newspapers, so many that it looked like they'd readily available elsewhere, but in fact I've never seen them since. I'm glad I bought a load, and since then I've sent some to Lululiz and Melanie, as part of prizes or swaps.
My favourite sorts of French vintage are small and transportable - I don't go for the furniture!This is how, as Hen was wondering the other day, I can successfully go to a VG by bike - buttons fit in a rucksack!Mmmm....... Clare, from Summerfete, asked the other day if I would be interested in selling some of my French finds to blog readers, and it has crossed my mind, but I wouldn't know how to begin...I do see some good value things, and I particularly pick up what interests me: linens...... lace and sewing accessories... ...buttons (no, surely not?)...
... vintage fabrics... ... vintage clothes and underwear...... and of course I also see other good deals which I am well aware that other bloggers would be interested in! (Query to self: why didn't I buy that mirror? It would go really well with the one that needs a pair...)
If I were to start selling, I'd like to price things carefully, to make some profit but not to have the silly prices I see on some French and UK vintage stalls!
So, my question to readers is: do you see a future in this? If you already sell over the internet, do you have any advice you could give me? If you can envisage visiting a future 'Floss Shop', what would you like to see in it? Please do give me the benefit of your thoughts - I will be grateful for any ideas or advice you could give me. Thanks!
