Booth Pics

Hello blog friendies!
I still haven't filled my booth all the way cuz stuff is flying off the shelves!
I kind of wish I could have blocked it off till it was full and then had a big reveal but oh well!  

I love "fluffing" my booth!
The timing is so right for me on this.
I believe in chasing your dreams but I also believe in perfect timing.

One of my fears in showing you pics is that you'll see something you gave me!
There was a day when I thought I'd remember where all my treasures came from but honestly, there are some things that I have *NO* memory acquiring!  So if you see something you gave me, just know I appreciated it at the time.  

Thanks for coming by and remember that I'm on fb now, too!

Moving Day One

I started moving into my new booth space yesterday!  It looks so much better in person. It's going to take practice to get the lighting right in my pics.  I had so much fun!  It was "smalls and walls" day.  Remember I said it's just half a booth?  Below is a "before" pic which includes the previous vendor's stuff and my neighbor's half.

Quite the contrast- right?  

I'll be bringing in more merch in the following days and decorating more so stay tuned!

Movin' On Up!

My little space at the antique mall has done so well!  I've already made a good profit and the month isn't even over!  My back is also doing so well that I'm very encouraged-

 SO encouraged that I'm moving up to a bigger space!  I'm so excited that I hardly slept last night!

I had planned for a booth for years but then gave up because of my health issues so this is like a resurrection dream come true.
Instead of a large bookcase, I'll have a 10x5 FT space with one very high wall.  It's sort of half a booth.
I can start moving in close to the end of the month.
It might not be quite full at first but I'll get it that way and I want it to be very colorful and cute!

Rest assured I'll be posting pics!

Fear of rejection has been my life long "curse" so this is a HUGE step for me!
Any tips from buyers or sellers are welcome!

Yo Yo Rag Garlands!

 I'm making garlands with teeny yo yos and rag strips tied between!  Isn't this one cute?  I made one for my booth but made one to sell online, too.  If this one sells, I'll string up another!  This one is done up in primary colors with mostly vintage fabrics and is 5 FT long.  I plan on making some with larger yo yos also.

Hope you all had a good Mother's Day!

More Pics Of My Mall Space

If you missed my last post, I'm a dealer at my antique mall now!
It took me a while to accept the fact that my back won't let me handle/sell large items but now I'm completely content with my medium and smalls!
I love my little space- it's right by the side emergency exit door so I can park there and haul my items right in!
I hung items on the side of my case in hopes of catching the eye of passers by.  
See my # 10?  
I hope to add more special touches in the coming days.
I'm just getting over a cold and sinus infection so I was limited in what I could do.
Did you hear I made a sale my first hours of being open.  Yay!
This is my first time to "work" outside the home since the 90s so it's a big step for me but a FUN step!
Wish me luck!

Space # 10

I started filling my space at the antique mall today!  
I made my first sale before I was even 1/2 finished!
