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.
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.
What other booth changes were there? Here are the latest booth displays.
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.
The newer coffee table and end table (both now sold) were Ricky’s purchases. We were having a hard time fitting everything in, so started stacking. Why does the end table look like it’s leaning in the picture??? The bar stools on the right were my purchase. They were too good of a deal to pass up.
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.
Here are the latest of our antique booth pictures. The word antique is used loosely, of course. I took the pictures on my phone and those fluorescent lights wreak havoc with the built in camera. That’s one reason you’ll rarely see booth pictures on the blog. They’re U G L Y! It was also a drop it and run day. We just can’t seem to get down there when I have a day to putter around with the look. So, there’s that. The pictures probably won’t be inspiring or anything, but here they are.
We took another, built by Ricky, table to the booth yesterday. This one has a different style legs. When he ordered them, I had my doubts, but I really like the look! We can’t keep farm tables in stock. I want the booth to have a variety of furniture, but he has to keep building what sells. These tables are so large, it’s hard to decorate the booth around them. We’re really need to expand whenever the booth next door comes open.
A bargain at $575.00. It should be almost double that.
Table and benches sold in 1-1/2 week.
Cute, Pottery Barn knock off mud room bench. Again, hand built. Marked down to $145.
We’ve had this metal leg table and green marble top in storage since I closed the shop. I used them mainly for display. Hate to sell it, but it’s time. $100.
Mid century modern isn’t big in the area of the mall. These chairs and table are still available. However, I don’t remember their price. They’re Erin’s.
We don’t ship furniture, but if you’re in the area, the booth is D-26 in Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika. It’s worth a day trip if you’re even remotely close. The mall is HUGE!
