With a possible move in our future, I’ve decided to focus on putting things in the booth rather than some online and some in the booth. I need to move it out of the house. And it’s a lot quicker to put 30 items in the booth than it is to take pictures and write descriptions on those same 30 things. So…. unless I know it won’t sell in the booth or if it has several parts to potentially get lost in a mall, it’s going to the booth. Even still, I’m slow. But I did get a good start yesterday. The booth had been sorely neglected because of life circumstances and was very close to empty. It’s almost like filling it up from scratch! Continue reading
There are a several reasons I haven’t been taking many/any pictures of the booth in awhile.
- I let it get pretty empty. Ricky made the offhand comment his furniture was making the money, so I stopped putting my stuff in there. I’d just show him. Yeah. I’m having to start filling it up again. The furniture makes a big chunk at once, but the smalls usually equal that amount. It takes it all.
- When we went to the booth, we were usually running late and basically had to drop and run. It just wasn’t looking nice.
- My phone was sick. See the end of the previous post about that. I wasn’t taking any pictures anywhere, any time.
But I now have a new phone and will have to get back in the habit. Or a better habit than I was in before. I also need to take more stuff. It still looks a bit skimpy in the pictures. Continue reading
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 all of which necessitated a big rearrange. This is the latest, June booth display.
(Jewelry chest is sold.)
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.
(Coffee table and end table that are in the upper left corner are sold.)
As a reminder, this is booth D-26 at Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama. We will be expanding in August.
