Revealing what I know about selling and decorating with vintage goods
Category: Just Vintage Booth Pictures
Booth pictures throughout the year from my booth in Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama, as well as pictures from other malls I’ve had booths in. I try to add creativity and imagination in the arrangements and vignettes. Perhaps there’s an arrangement that will inspire you to something much better than mine. A fantabulous booth!
We got a new booth! It’s in one of the most coveted spots in the mall. It has launched renters into their own shops, even. But let me tell you this. It’s not the magic bullet. It has to be worked and has to have what people want or it won’t do any better than anywhere else in the mall. It’s all about presentation and content.
With the move into the new booth coinciding with the move into the new house, the booth hasn’t got the attention it needs. I did a quick 2-hour arrangement, then a few days ago took in some new smalls and poked around for about an hour. So, not the ideal situation for sales.

Finally, the booth is decorated for fall! Such as it is. The booth has been so neglected. There just haven’t been big blocks of time to fix that, Ricky hasn’t had a chance to build any new furniture, and sales have definitely suffered. I was also sharing a booth with a friend at a mall near here and had neglected my part there, too, so I gave that up, changed the price tags, gathered up fall and Halloween things, a couple of crummy bookcases, three pieces of furniture from my Dad’s and planned to spend a day at Angel’s. (Angel’s in Opelika, Alabama) Continue reading Pictures Of the Booth Decorated For Fall
I haven’t done a video of the booth in a long time, so decided to make one this week. I have to say, it’s not very inspiring. Sorta bare. Not as full as it should be. No drapey gauze, no ambient lighting, no banners, but it’s certainly not the worst in the mall either.
We’re sitting on several pieces of furniture awaiting Ricky’s magic touch. But until then……
Ricky goes back to the square leg table and benches when he wants to do this finish.
Speaking of tables and benches, I was looking at realtor.com at houses in the general area of the mall and spotted one of his creations in a house! How fun!
