Booth Display for June

Booth Display for June

We took a few pieces of furniture to the booth last week. Ricky made another table and benches, he refinished an old desk we had picked up and we added a jewelry cabinet which necessitated a big rearrange. This is the latest, June booth display.

Hand built farm table and MCM coffeetable

Okay. So displaying a mid century modern coffee table on top of a farm table isn’t the best display, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do when space is limited.

As a reminder, this is booth D-26 at Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama. We will be expanding in August. 

What’s Under the Quilt and the Latest Booth Displays

Memorial day weekend, we were riding down the road, headed to the booth, with, appropriately, this patriotic quilt covering something. What do you suppose it was?

It was Ricky’s latest creation! A million lb. sideboard that he and I wrestled up onto the trailer. (We called our son-in-law to help unload it.)

It sold in under two weeks. We left for vacation right after taking this to the booth, so I’m quite late with this blog post.

The price of this mud room bench has been reduced. It’s a Pottery Barn knock off and a fraction of the cost. Wonder if theirs sold well for them? The bar stools you get a glimpse of behind sold the next day.

Arranging floral items

Just an arrangement of some sweet, floral items.

They were turning the lights out on us, and the pictures, which are usually bad in that lighting anyway, seem worse. And I  didn’t get to take a picture of the whole booth.

Am I doomed to failure because I'm not a morning person?

Have you read articles and books about the habits of successful people and read that one of the things they have in common is rising early? They get up before the rest of the household (Or maybe even before the sun. Gasp!) and……

  • Start writing/working
  • Exercise
  • Get housework out of the way
  • Blah, blah, blah

Happy, energetic, morning people

Sickening, right? The only things on that list that appeal to me even a tiny bit are the first three and that’s because I can do them without getting out of bed. Then when I do get up, I’ve forgotten what I thought about/read/planned. Because…….

I am not a morning person!
