The big flea market I sell at here in Connecticut is opening April 3rd. I am so excited to go and move things out that I haven't been able to sell throughout the winter. I will tell you though, my family is so sick of lugging and packing up furniture. Randy and the kids always ask me why I couldn't have taken the easier route and just have been a seller of jewelry.
So, things here are going to change a bit. I will continue to sell large pieces of furniture on Craigslist and possibly a new shop opening near me (more exciting news on that to come). But as far as the flea market goes, I will be bringing small shelves, bowls, etc. In addition I am going to start selling fashion accessories and make up.
That leads me to the containers and price tags in my title. I picked up a bunch of metal bins and wire baskets at The Dollar Store.
Of course, for those of you who know me, know that I painted and distressed those containers. Next, I was trying to think of a no cost way to make labels and tags. I am a huge fan of Amy Butler and Michael Miller fabric, so I googled some prints and printed them out.
In addition, I used scrap pieces of wrapping paper I had laying around that weren't large enough to wrap gifts. I glued these prints to brown grocery bags. This will provide the label to be stiff and not floppy. Plus the backside will have a shabby brown bag appeal.
I used a glass to trace the circle shape I wanted. Of course you can use any shape you want.
I cut them out and I have my new tags to use as gift tags, price tags, etc.
As you can see, I have used clothes pins and ribbon to attach my tags. There are so many other ways you can attach these. And remember, they are FREE to make. So, be sure not to throw away those scrap pieces of wrapping paper anymore that you don't think will be big enough to wrap something. Recycle gifts cards you receive and use a portion from them.....
