Antique Booth Pictures for July

Antique Booth Pictures for July

There are a several reasons I haven’t been taking many/any pictures of the booth in awhile.

  1. 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.
  2. When we went to the booth, we were usually running late and basically had to drop and run. It just wasn’t looking nice.
  3. 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

Booth Display for June

Booth Display for June

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.

Hand built farm table and MCM coffeetable

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. 

What’s Under the Quilt and the Latest Booth Displays

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.

Mud room bench in the latest booth display

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.

Oak coffee table and end table

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. 

Arranging floral items

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.
