Ready for Spring

After the recent Spring snow we had this weekend,  I am so ready for Spring.  Spring brings some of my favorite things…yard sales, flipflops, and longer days.

We updated our booth at Black Dog Salvage with more bright vibrant colors for Spring.  Below is a preview of some of the one of a kind items we have available:

The Designing Pickers Booth Now Has A New Look!

It has been a while since I have written a blog post and I really need to get better at this but this summer has been crazy busy.  We have moved the booth 3 times, to new bigger, more visible  locations at Black Dog Salvage.  It has been amazing at how great business has been during out first year of business.  We have a hard time keeping the booth stocked because things are going out as fast as we move them in, but that is a good thing.

This has been a busy week.  I have painted the booth a great color called Ocean Storm.  It works well to show up our Fall and Winter merchandise we have planned for the booth.  I have found a new way to “pick” from my home by searching online auctions.  My friend, Tommy Wagner has one of the best sites around.  Check out Tommy Wagner Auctions for lots of great stuff.  I purchased some great decorating accessories this week from his latest auction.  I have been doing a lot of picking this week and have found some really cool items for painting.  Now to just find the time to paint…that is the real problem because our staging business has been busier this year than ever.

Check out our new booth…  we would to hear your comments.

Porches… Adding More Living Space To Your Home

Living in the South, we love our porches.  A place to swing, dream, read, talk to friends, and enjoy a glass of wine or lemonade. If you are selling a home with a porch, stage your porch.  Add furniture and plants to add value to your porch and add more living space.

Changing it up a bit…

We have used this small side table for several years in our staging business but after lots of moving, it had a few scratches on top and was ready to be retired. Instead I painted it with Annie Sloan’s Providence, distressed the edges and now it has a fresh new look in another staged home.

We put it in the Designing Pickers booth at Black Dog Salvage last month but it did not sell so it went back to the warehouse.

It now provides a much needed pop of color in one of the Shows Great Staged Homes for sale but it will be for sale soon…so watch for it at Designing Pickers.

Small Farm Table with 4 Chairs

We had a busy day at the booth last weekend and we sold just about everything in the booth. Yesterday we added new merchandise including this really sweet farm table and 4 chairs. The table can be sold with or without the chairs.

We Have Moved!

Well…we moved just a few feet to a larger space to accommodate our new pickins.  We hope you still stop by the Designing Pickers booth at Black Dog Salvage to see all the new things we have added for Spring.

We have items from our real estate staging (Shows Great Home Staging) inventory like the chocolate brown sofa from Ashley Furniture, and assortment of throw pillows for just $4.00 each to some great painted pieces, like the black and white chest, soft blue/green coffee table and end tables, and chest and night stand.  We have pickins like the antique 1850’s chest, vintage trucks, moonshine jug, and vintage luggage and much more.

We have lots more stuff to add as soon as we make more room.

New Additions at Designing Pickers…

We have added a couple new pieces to our booth.  Check out the beautiful black and white chest with the little storage compartments in the top drawer.

Having trouble seeing your watch?  Always running a little late?  The we have just the thing for you…Large commercial clock.

Stop by Black Dog Salvage on Saturday, warm yourself by the wood burning fire, pet Sally the dog, and check out Designing Pickers.
