Around ACM (Antique Company Mall)

I have been wanting to highlight some of the vendors at the antique mall where I have my booth.
So, we will start with a few pics I snapped a couple of weeks ago.
If any of you reading this are dealers in an antique mall you know we have a weakness to buy from each other.

I have chosen two dealers that help feed my addiction...

Carolyn has several spaces. All very well displayed and there is usually a theme to each section.
My short experience in this business would strongly encourage any of you looking for direction to increase sales - have" a look". Your own unique personality will shine through and draw customers like bugs to a light. Seriously. Try it. Go for it. Tell 'em Ella said so...

Carolyn has set up old doors all around to use as backdrops for her goods.
Try to think out of the box. Look at anything from a different angle. Literally.
That means turning it upside down and sideways.

Group colors together for themes and holidays.
This old green lawn chair was a perfect perch for this St.Patrick's grouping.

Think Spring...

Easter is just around the corner. A few sun shiny days seem to help get us in the mood to think about flowers and gardening.


The other dealer that has the display "eye" is Nancy. The other Nancy.

Her booth is near the check out just up a little ways from my front booth.

Nancy's look is more rustic. Very simplistic in a way, yet appealing.

I love the way she layers everything. It all just looks like it was meant to be in that place.


Well, I hope you enjoyed the short tour. These two ladies are very talented and I was glad to share a small sampling of their "look".
See ya next time...

Thanks for showcasing these booths Nancy, they have a real way to display. I just love all the spring and gardeny items. I'm really ready for Spring!
