I took the leap. I moved downstairs at the Antique Company Mall. I am now on the main aisle across from the check-out counter. There is more room, better access and it is the
perfect place to be.
My Dear Hubby and I set last Friday and Saturday as our days to paint and set up. We didn't know that a recent lightning storm had fried some of the wiring in the building. This meant we didn't have any air or much lighting. Both of my booths upstairs did not have any working lights. I must say it was not the best working conditions and we were really tired at the end of the weekend. I am still fluffing and fussing over every detail, but it is getting there.
I took an old vintage frame and painted the inside with chalkboard paint. I was inspired to add the twigs and birds from an Anthropologie display I had seen on Roxanne's blog.
I tried to take photos starting at the front right and work back and around to the other side. It is hard to know what something will look like to someone who hasn't been there.
Does that make any sense?
I spotted one of the other dealers bringing this table in to sell in her booth, but it needed to be right here...in my booth.
I made hanging screens from vintage sheet music and old door insets. I adapted this idea from a booth I saw on a blog sometime back. If anyone knows whose blog this idea is from, please let me know so I can give them credit. (Update: I saw this on The Veranda's Oct. 2008 blog post. It was on a much grandiose scale, but that is what spurred the idea for my screens.)

I will be adding new goodies frequently, so visit often!
