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!
I spent over 5 hours Saturday re-working and doing a little fall decorating in the booth. Yes, it desperately needed 5+ hours of work. I was embarrassed to say it was my booth. It was awful. But you see, I had kind of lost my heart for it. For it all, really. The estate sales in the area we’ve moved to are generally too expensive and the yard sales are mostly clothes and last years toys. It has taken all the fun out of it and hardly seems worth my time. I guess that has bled over to not wanting to do anything in the booth, too. But I figure I’ll get over it. And Saturday was a good start.
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. I thought I’d show you what it looks like anyway. Continue reading This Month’s Antique Booth Arrangement
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.
