Booth finished...for now!

Friday was spent moving all my items in my booth at the
antique mall to a larger booth and then setting
everything back up.

Luckily hubby had taken a vacation day off work to
help out or I would still be there!

I need to learn consistency.
I made these tags and love them,
but I made other designs also that are totally
different. I need to find one type of tag and
stick with it don't ya think?

I put a large decal on this plate. It can only
be used for display and not actually put in water,
but I think it turned out very pretty.

Standing in another booth this is what you see.

I wanted to hang old lace tablecloths up, but
I only had one and didn't know exactly what to do
so I need to find more of them for backdrops instead
of just the pegboard.

I can see now that it definitely needs some tweaking,
but I was so tired and just wanted to be done.

For those of you who don't know , I have
fibromyalgia and it just wears me out to
spend hours doing something like this,
but in the end it is worth it.

I think I need some more doilies or fabric on these
shelves to soften the look more.

See the cloth over to the right hand side of the picture
above the pitcher? There is a wide green support beam in the
middle of my booth so I had to camoflauge it with
something. I hung this linen tablecloth
over it and stapled it fast. I hope it stays up. lol
(I got it brand new at the Goodwill
originally from Target...shh)
all kinds of goodies...

Tags that I made.
I love to make tags... sometimes
somedays...not so much. lol
I have always loved this huge pitcher and basin , but
it is time for someone else to enjoy it as much as I have.

I made several more spoon ornaments for Mother's Day.

I would have loved to taken more time to get some more close up and detailed pictures , but I just wanted to go home. Hope you enjoyed your tour.

Frankly that is tons of work, anyone would get tired!! I say you can use whatever kinds of tags you want, LOL. Just beautiful merchandise, very pretty!!! I agree with more draping, table clothes, laces. fabrics, doilies to soften the look but really, still is wonderful, rest up!, Hugs, Jane

Your booth is just splendid! It would be beautiful with the lace tablecloths but I like the uncluttered look also! You can focus more on the individual items.
I just love your old pitcher and basin! All your goodies are so sweet!
Thanks for sharing all the photos of your booth ~ I hope you do well selling!
Warm Springtime Blessings!

Sandi, your new booth looks fabulous even as it is. Sure wish I could come and do a bit of shopping as I see several items in your photos that I'd love to take a closer look at. A booth decorated like yours is always the first one I find myself rushing towards when I hit the antique malls.

Ack! That is TOO funny about the word verification ... crazy how that happens every now & them.

I love your shop, not booth, SHOP!, Sandi. You did a lovely job. Your spoon ornies are clever.

Hugs of love, Marydon

Oh mom how gorgeous!


Looks GREAT!!! Love the pink wicker purse/tote and I see a FEW other treasures that would be nice to have.
I know it's WORK getting and keeping a booth/room ready and shopable!
It's fun seeing yours.

Sandi amor, your booth is just lovely! I love all your beautiful treasures in there :) You have a good eye for pretty items! Besos, Rose

Looks great. Variety is the spice of life so nice to mix it up. Don't always have to be consistent. I believe that more is better so as you go about tweaking, I am sure doilies and lace and fabric will find their way into all those empty spots you see. Wishing you much success. All the best, Tammy

Sheila said...

It all looks wonderful. That plate you put the decal on is to die for stunning. Love it all. Even the clever way to hide a big green pole.. haha.. Sheila
