Happiness is Only a Spray Away

img_3270So often we see a great deal but we don’t think we have the time, money, or courage undertake the effort to make a “good deal” into something “just right” for us.

Case in point: Patios are the new living room / family room / great room combos. It seems like everyone is sprucing up their porch and outdoor space ALL THE TIME.

Here at the Tri State Area’s Largest and most Award Winning Market and Auction Space, we find that super sturdy, retro cool, and even almost new patio furniture is found here for pennies on the dollar during most sales.

Today we are going to focus on how you can take one of those super sturdy, retro cool, gliders and take it to the next level (or just a less violently eye popping color combination).

Take this beauty, offered for auction soon. img_6805

It’s sturdy and the cushions are comfortable. With reclining arms, fully reclining back, and smooth glide operation, this mid-century beauty was built to last. If you love those oh so retro cushions then by all means, dust her off, grab a drink, and have a seat.

If, however, you aren’t so sure that goes with your decor, there are quick and easy ways to make over outdoor furniture that won’t cost you an arm and a leg or blood, sweat, and tears.

Here is how one $12 (yes, TWELVE dollars) glider went from drab to fab with just a quick spray of fresh color.

BLOG Glider Before

BLOG Glider Before. $12 at auction. The Frame was solid but the cushions needed some help.

What do we have to lose? Nothing but some really drab cushions. Enter the magic of spray paint.

Spray the offending cushions. Light thin coats over clean surface. Dry thoroughly between coats. Press your $1 plant hanger (also purchased at auction) into service as a cushion hanger. To the rear you can see the glider being painted a nice rich color as well. The flat cushions are hanging on a clothes line because anything works in a pinch. More spray paint.

When dry put it all back together and sit back and relax and enjoy your finished product. Over a year later and this updated neutral is at home on any patio. For $12 plus two cans of spray paint we have a beautiful updated glider for less than the cost of a pizza and a couple drinks. Which, by the way, will be delicious enjoyed sitting on this glider.

We must also lose our fear of spreading a little color around! So bid on that crazy outdoor furniture and grab a couple of cans and get to making your new/old items fit your lifestyle.

Buckets of Fun & Farmhouse Frugal

So … do you know what all of the following have in common?

They are all part of the “hot” new trend (No, not Pokemon Go!, the other one).

They are all part of the deliciously rustic and wonderful “Farmhouse Style” that is sweeping HGTV, Pinterest and homes everywhere. There is a very good reason for this.

It’s unique.

It’s affordable.

It works.

Breathing new life into old things is the heart and soul of “flea marketing.” The amazing finds at our Friday market, Friday Auctions, and Second Tuesday Consignment Auction each month are no exception!

These items could all be created cheaply and easily with  a variety of the unique treasures found on our grounds.

Here is just a small sampling of the hundreds of thousands of items you can find here.

Happy Hunting!

Our auctions and market are a tried and true way to make space – and profit.

Do you want to meet buyers face to face in a safe environment that doesn’t require you inviting strangers to your home, or meeting them in random parking lots? Our Market is for you.

Here we offer 70 acres of free parking and a quick, easy way to sell your stuff. Feel free to tag us on Social Media and let our vast following know you are here – FOR FREE!

Leftover items? DO go home empty handed! You can take them home or drop them off at our 6 p.m. Household and Miscellaneous Auction. Drop off and let us sell the rest for you.

Our auctions offer a variety of options from drop off each Friday for 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. auctions or for large items or whole house clean outs feel free to check out our Second Tuesday Monthly Consignment Auction. Our auctioneers command top dollar at that place and time for your goods. We can accept payment in cash, check, or credit which will often up the sales prices for interested bidders. 

Let others spend time and lose money on yard sales and deal with endless online scams. Smart sellers come to the Tri-State Area’s Largest Open Air Market and Auction House to clean house and pocket profit!

#Winning (Again)

Oops, we did it again. Apologies for the dated pop reference but it bears repeating. We are winners.

There, we said it.

In addition to being a multi-year winner of the “Best Flea Market in Ohio,” we have enjoyed a variety of accolades and awards in the past few months.

We just added another.

Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence with Text Blurb

This award means quite a bit to us because while we “earned” it, you awarded it. Up to 50,000 visitors each Friday during peak season (since 1955). We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and our market.

Thank you.

Here’s Your Sign(s)

There’s no greater sign that you need to visit the Tri-State Area’s Largest Open Air Market or Auctions than these.

 

Call it Antique, retro, vintage, or even brand new, signage and typography is red hot in the collectible and decor market today. Nothing adds a fresh conversation piece to your spaces quite like a unique piece of Americana.

Whether visiting our over 1600 vendors on any Market Friday, or coming to our amazing Second Tuesday Monthly Consignment Auction, you will won’t find a bigger or better source for all the signs of your (good) times!
