Mad Maine Vintage Shop

This little blog will chronicle my ventures into selling vintage items in a local antique market.
My booth is called Mad Maine Vintage Shop - it features items inspired by a certain popular TV show,
and I am located in lovely Maine. Viva Vintage!

December Recap, Cliff's Notes Edition

The good news from December:  I made the most money to date in my booth, about 3X what I normally make!
 Despite the fact that I was missing in action for the entire two last weeks of the Christmas month, the stuff seemingly sold itself.  I went back to my booth today for the first time in 18 days, and it was not a pretty sight.  Stuff shuffled around, books and tins on the floor, other people's merchandise left in my booth, ugh.  But then I got my check, and I felt a lot better.  Big things sold and lots of little things sold, and I have a lot of open shelf space to fill up.  And guess what my number one seller was?
Once again: mugs!  I sold about a dozen mugs in December - as I have said previously, Mainers sure like their coffee, tea, cider and hot chocolate in retro mugs.

What was your biggest seller in December?


  1. Wow, congratulations on your best month yet. wishing you more success in 2013. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your nice comment.

    1. I love stopping by your blog on my coffee breaks - I get so many good ideas!

  2. Wow, love those retro mugs! I can see them flying off the shelf. My big seller this month was Pyrex and Christmas tablecloths. Using the suitcase is a great idea. I have pillows for sale in one and I'm amazed at how many I have stacked in it.

    1. My one Christmas table cloth and all the Christmas napkins disappeared in my booth too. Now I know I should stack up for next time :-)
