Hi friends! Welcome back to this week’s show and tell! I’ve been busy the past week making Christmas crafts for my new antique booth. I brought everything I’d made in today to spruce up the booth, and I’m pretty happy with how it looks.
I was also pleased to learn that I’d sold about $70 worth of merchandise since moving in on December 1st.
I was going to wait to post photos until the booth looks more “done”, but it occurred to me today that my readers would probably enjoy watching the transformation. So instead, I’ll share my plans with you.
I’d like to jazz up the back wall. Other vendors at the shop have painted the walls or hung fabric in their booths. I need to think about it a bit, but it’s definitely going to get a new look.
I have an old, large mint painted wood bookshelf that I’d like to use as a display piece. It weighs a ton, so I just need a helper to get it there. Then I can take down the six foot folding table, which will free up space for small furniture.
I’ve ordered hang tags with my business name, logo and website address that I’ll use to price my merchandise. I’d also like to get a banner with my logo to hang in the booth. My aim is to establish my “brand” and maintain a consistent look.
Remember this table? He’s looking pretty snazzy now after getting a farmhouse makeover. Here he is now in the booth. I painted the legs, then sanded the top and revived the wood with hemp oil.
I hope you like this first peek at the booth! I had so much fun today moving things around and making it look inviting. If you’re local and would like to check it out, my booth is located at:
Maximus Antiques & Home Decor 143 Main Street Old Saybrook, CT 06475
I’m thrilled to once again join Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate and 20 other talented ladies on a Christmas tablescape blog hop this week. My post goes live on Friday morning, so please stop back if you can!
Have a great week!
