I love snapping quick photos to share with you in my Learn a Lot series. There’s so much imagination out there to inspire us all… but sometimes, even The Resale Guru needs to

take a second look.

I saw this wonderful little swing shop armoire in a vintage market and loved the signage, the tulle on the top of the (really, an old TV armoire….) and the lace and beads to emphasize the merchandise…

Do you swing in your shop? What’s a swing shop? From the TGtbT.com Glossary of Resale Terms:

Kate once again, out and about, coming across some cool ideas for resale and consignment shops.

This time, it was at a shop on AMI, which Florida-beach lovers will recognize as the initials of Anna Maria Island, and a long-time store, Mister Roberts Resortwear (just the name tells you how long this shop’s been in business…)

Auntie Kate shows you how these earrings won't be easily shoplifted.

Thanks to Mister Roberts Resortwear for allowing me to share this idea with you. If you’re on AMI, their address is 5330 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach FL (no, they didn’t name he town after Auntie Kate LOL)
