As promised...and my booth

the other gorgeous vintage card I found while antiquing
{see post below this one for a pink rose card}
{These cards are cardboard and measure
approx. 5 inches x 6 inches}
The perfect size to tuck into a vignette.

I have taken the *plunge* again and am
expanding to a larger booth at the antique
mall. I was tossing around the idea for the past few days
because you can only get so much stuff into a 4 foot x 6 foot
area. I emailed the owner and immediately got a phone call
and she told me she had the perfect booth for me.
It will be on the main aisle and I am so looking forward
to a larger booth. I will also enjoy the hunt for
more stuff to fill it up. Moving day is around April 1.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead. We will be on R and R again, but I will
try to check in every so often.

Almost forgot to tell you that I hit the jackpot
at the Goodwill yesterday. Got two silver pieces,
a chenille spread, two pillows, brand new white battenburg
duvet {still in package} , two candles, and a couple
other goodies. The pillows , spread and duvet were 1/2 off too!

I rarely find anything anymore so I was
a happy camper. In fact, I was in the dressing room
keeping a close eye on my cart through the slats in the door
{ I know I know...pretty obsessive huh}
when someone came in and yelled, "Is this someone's cart out here
with the white blanket {chenille spread} and I said, "Yes".
To which she replied, "OH SHOOT...then I won't root through it.

Your blog is so pretty and these cards are amazing. I've looked back over several posts and each one is more beautiful than the last.
The scripture verses are such a blessing too.

That's a beautiful card Sandi! The new booth sounds like a great move for you. You'll fill it up and then some, I'm sure.
Have a great time r&r-ing. Miss you already.

The scripture cards are *gorgeous*! I wish I could find more of them...decorating with a purpose, you know...oh, and more *fun* at the antique mall...I guess this means it's going well? HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY! I can't believe I've been reading and we've been chatting for over a year:)

Congrats on your expansion, sweet friend. Make a ton of $$$ & have fun.

Great news, you'll be a busy lady, filling that booth. And what good luck with the Goodwill. I too have not found any jackpots lately, maybe I'm just getting too picky.


I hope you had a great day!
I have a bigger room at the shop also...this month! I'm going to post some pics of it tonight. I think I need MORE things!!!
It sure is hit and miss at the thrift stores!
Happy hunting this weekend and can't wait to see your bigger space!
Deb :)
