I hope you ALL have a very blessed Memorial Day!!!!! Remember those lost, enjoy some BBQ, and (hopefully depending on where you live) the weather!
Spent the day today working in both my retail shops, putting in fresh stuff, switching around the displays, marking certain things down, and cleaning. Even found some stuff I may be interested in buying if I can get a better deal. All around great day!
My Mother went along for the journey today and I always enjoy when she can. It gives me someone to help out and talk to. Ended up having lunch at Arby’s. In my “previous life” (one of them) I used to be a General Manager of an Arby’s, so you’d think I wouldn’t want to eat it at all, but that’s not the case. While I worked there I was sick of the food, now I enjoy it on occasion. Love me a regular roast beef sandwich!
Sales in the booths are great, and even had a GREAT day of online sales….. VERY thankful, ready to relax a bit tonight, then CRUSH a few days of SOLID HUSTLE ahead!!!!!! LIFE IS GOOD! Stay focused, stay busy, stay HUMBLE!
Hello everyone! Had a blast today working in my shop at Big Valley Antiques in Milroy, PA. Changed around the displays, brought in a few boxes of fresh finds, and even found some stuff to buy for resale in some other’s booths! Always great when that happens!
I now need to catch up on some paperwork, then it’s time to attempt to put together our new bed frame. Last week Amazon sent the frame without rails, and just yesterday we received new packages after returning the old one. Let’s hope it’s complete this time!!!!
I’ll check in again soon, enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!
Hello everyone!!! Hope you are having a great day so far, whatever time it happens to be where you are at right now while reading this. I slept in today, which doesn’t happen often, but was well worth it as we just purchased a brand new bed this past week, and boy is it comfortable! It’s amazing how having a good quality bed can completely change how you sleep, how your body feels, and how overall productive you are in life. Just a few days and I’m starting to feel completely different!
Now to the matter at hand… Cinco De Mayo! Me and my girlfriend are big fans of this Holiday, which is TODAY if you aren’t aware, and is the “Fifth of May,” again, if you are living under a rock. Yesterday I purchased some ingredients to make tacos this evening, and also got some tequila to make some mixed drinks. Going to be a fun evening! First things first, I have some packages to wrap for shipment tomorrow for my retail business. Always fun! Besides the sarcasm, always a great thing to see money COMING IN in business, NOT just going out, so I’ll take the work any day!
I hope you are able to enjoy some tacos or tequila yourself today, or perhaps some burritos, nachos, whatever the case!
One last time, HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO, and ENJOY YOUR DAY!
How’s it going everyone?! Hope that your weekend is going GREAT so far, if it IS the weekend where you are, right now, as you are reading this! Yesterday I got out a bit and enjoyed the (decent) weather for the first time this Spring. Pennsylvania was harsh this Winter!! Nonetheless me and my girlfriend walked around Nittany View Park in Boalsburg, PA a bit. They have a pretty decent walkway/path that we’ll hopefully be using a lot this Spring and Summer, and on such walkway I took the above shot. Just getting warmed up for all the photography I plan on shooting this year!!!!!
Today it’s mostly an office day for me, and tomorrow I hit one of my local Flea Markets (weather permitting) for the first time this year!!!! If not tomorrow, there are SEVERAL upcoming “Brent opening days” I have my eyes on!!!! ;)
2013, (finally) GET READY! :)
Hello everyone, and hope you are having a great Easter day!!! Right now I’m just sitting in the office enjoying a cup of coffee, getting ready to start my Easter dinner in a bit. We’re doing things a bit differently, as we usually do with Holidays, and being “sort of” traditional while also changing things up a bit. We’re having ham and traditional sides, but also making some marinated steak. Should be delicious!
At some point today I have some packages that I can hopefully get wrapped for shipment tomorrow, some paperwork to accomplish, you name it. The hustle never truly ends!
Nonetheless, enjoy your day, and I’ll check back in with you all tomorrow!
How’s it going everyone, I hope great! I’ve been busy today working on our Etsy store, adding new stuff, etc… We have lots of ideas/plans for this store as Spring continues and Summer approaches, fun stuff! Etsy along with eBay and our now TWO instead of three co-op booths will be keeping us busy all year, and we plan on setting up as a vendor at Flea Markets as well. Going to be a busy, busy year and I love it!
We’re not too far now from April 1st next Monday (not to mention Easter THIS SUNDAY!) and the relaunch of both our shops. “OUP Thrift & Vintage @ Roller Mills Antiques” and “Brent’s Advertising & Collectibles @ Big Valley Antiques.” Very fun, busy times! Can’t wait to share some of the other things I’ve been working on with you guys as well, working on getting a lot of content to my liking then I’ll be sharing. Thanks for hanging along for the ride!
Be sure to follow along tomorrow on Twitter @oup for #FreshPickedThursdays
Wherever you are right now, and whatever time it is, I hope you are having an absolutely awesome day! It’s the first day of Spring so for me especially here in Central Pennsylvania this means the good weather is FINALLY right around the corner! I have some errands to run this morning in a bit, some paperwork to do this afternoon, and something EXTREMELY exciting I’ll be working on! HOPE THE SAME IS TRUE FOR ALL OF YOU!
