I found a set of five Melplus blue trays but decided to pass on them because blue isn't really a color I like nor have in my home. I could have sold them in the shop, but they would have cost too much and I didn't think there would be enough profit.
These super fab Olympics posters from 1980 got my attention. There were also two others that I didn't photograph. I liked them but didn't love them. I didn't like the Levi's logo on the bottom right. They were also too pricey to put in the shop. (Interesting trivia... the US did not participate in the 1980 summer games because it was held in Moscow).
Once again, I like these fun bird figurines, but didn't love them. The owl bank was kinda pricey and had some chips. Plus, I think the owl craze is long over, so I wasn't interested in putting it in the shop.
I love these fun kitschy candle holders but I passed on them for my personal collection because I don't get too excited about Christmas decorations anymore. Also, Christmas items don't sell well in the shop plus I am trying to get away from selling super kitschy items. The lamp is great, too, but it was chipped in a few spots. For the shop I don't want to deal with shipping large items.
More awesome furniture! This coffee table and dresser are great but I have too much furniture as it is. In the spring I am going to have to get rid of 2/3 to 3/4 of my stuff (for reasons I will go in to later) so adding more stuff to my apartment is kinda stupid right now.
Ok, I know that sofa table thingy is quite a "look". And I'm not a gold/brass kind of person. But it could be awesome in the right setting and something an experienced interior designer could work with (like in this space). And the wooden side table could be great with some elbow grease that I'm not willing nor have the desire to do right now in my life.
I've been looking for a hutch similar to this one, but I'm not going to buy something that's not exactly what I want. Plus this one had a matching sideboard and I didn't want to deal with that. And I am always a sucker for industrial looking chairs. But, like I wrote above, buying more furniture right now isn't an option.
What items have all of you found but not bought? What are some of the reasons you will not purchase an item?
