This is something I have always wanted to try, ever since I was a teenager. This week, due to my husband being in violation of court orders and choosing to ignore the required alimony and child support, I decided it might be a good time to go for it. Hmmmmmm... abject poverty or mighty empire..... decisions, decisions....
I have always wanted to purchase one small item that I could turn around and sell, either with or without labor, and make a little more, use that money to buy a more expensive item, then repeat that process continually until I have enough money to have something usable.
Yesterday, I left the house early for a dental appointment that I could no longer put off, as the pain was getting too bad. And who wants to go through life with visible holes in their mouth, you know?
Well, it turns out I had the time wrong. I was not to be there at 1 pm, my appointment was at 4 pm! Ack! A half day we could have spent getting things done here at home! Why do these things happen? Why indeed...?
What to do? Can't run back and forth to town all day long. So we used the time to window shop in some places I'd not been in for a long time. We finally ended up at the thrift store and I found these items separately. When I sat them all next to each other, the old idea popped into my head.
These are solid brass, made in India, and all together they cost me $6.00. I think I can sell them for more than that as a set.
I would love input on this. I have tremendous ideas all the time, but I often think that my ideas are not usually what appeal to others. If you can think of anything for me, put it in a comment below. I am wondering about a price. Does $35.00 seem good?
I am also wondering about the photos I just now took, very quickly. I know presentation is key, so I want to photograph them well. I am wondering about actually creating an entire deco scene around them, maybe flowers or something, but I am sort of drawn to the simplicity of the mantle shot.
My creative juices are flowing now. I am seeing these in an outdoor, rock setting with some flowing water... I have the rocks, and Michael could stand out of view with a pitcher... could work! :-)
Opinions, opinions! I know you have great ones. I would love them, both from an artistic sense and a common sense from consumer points of view.
I am considering opening another blog, just for this particular adventure. Seeing how far this idea goes. I want to find out if this is something the Lord will make happen, or just another of Faith's funny ideas.
Bring it on!
