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!
If you’re looking for staging inspiration, um…. this might not be the best post for that. You might want to check out the Facebook page where I recently shared a friend’s stunning booth for that.
But parts of my booth are okay. The pictures look a bit grainy.
The pair of Hall mixing bowls, the Virgin Mary planter, the “Jesus knows me, this I love” sign, the Viking glass owl, the little fan shaped pottery vase, and the white McCoy bookend/planter are all recent acquisitions. Others have been hanging around the house for years.
We just bought this dining table and chairs Saturday. Took it straight to the booth. Figured if we took it home to replace the seats, it would never get done.
Our daughter painted the table with the stenciled doilies.
Another weekend buy. A vintage, toy pinball machine.
I just love these Samsonite luggage pieces! Especially the one with the handles on the top and side.
The cottage prints on the little shelf are from my personal collection. I decided maybe I didn’t want to collect cottage prints any more. Yeah, I’ll probably regret that. They might come back home with me if nobody wants them.
Some things I bought recently that are out of season:
These Halloween blow mold guys are large. Over a foot tall. One is dated 1969, so I figure they’re both early ’70’s. Made to be lighted.
I didn’t even clean these up before taking the picture. Christmas candles, a Santa planter that might decide to live with me, and two pair of little girl gloves from the late 1950’s. How do I know they’re from the late 1950’s? Because I know the girls, sisters, they belonged to.
I’ll be taking another load Tuesday if not before. It’s kinda fun not spreading myself so thin! I wish I could decide on either booth or internet. But I’m wishy washy. I flip flop from wanting to do one or the other and continue to do both.
Thanks for stopping by! And if you’re in east central Alabama or west central Georgia, we are booths D-24/26 in Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama.
