It’s going slower than I would have liked. We have had several problems crop up that have limited our time available to work on re-doing the booth this January. Some good — some bad — such is life.
We got a call from the owner of Riley Emporium the other day. She said the booth was a wreck due to a few large items selling. The result was a lot of smalls sitting on the floor. She promised to go to the booth and get as much off the floor as she could but thought we should know. Bless her heart!
We showed up, en mass, the next day with more items including a cool, shabby chic kitchen cabinet my sister and brother in law had. It’s pictured on the wall on the right side in the photo below.
Our booth is unique in that it has a display shelf that separates it into two area. We have aptly named them the Kitchen/Dinning Area and the Living/Bedroom Area. We need another load or two to get the inventory back up to where it belongs but at least it looks a lot more presentable!
Sis and brother in law also had a hard rock maple bench already at the booth. It’s position was less than stellar, so that day we moved it to the living area of the booth space and in the 4 days between all of us going and then my hubby and I returning yesterday, it was sold. Proves that moving things around gets the customers attention!
Here’s a close up of the chippy kitchen cabinet with the porcelain counter:
In the living/bedroom area, we are definitely lacking in merchandise. I rearranged, moved and played with the items we had as well as adding a few new ones that were ready to go. We had a small collection of coffee pots/urns in silver that I thought would look nice as a centerpiece in the middle of the living area. We had 3 plant stands/tables of varying heights that made a great base to build on. This is what it ended up looking like:
I was able to place smaller items on the floor surrounding the stands so it wasn’t wasted space. Lastly I added some cool Egyptian statues garnered from an estate sale this past fall. They had been sitting in a box in the garage still packed from our move. Aren’t they cool?
When we finally get the “Spring” theme going and lots more moved in, I will show you some more pictures. Until then, Happy New Year everyone! May 2012 bring you health, prosperity and happiness.
