Post Valentine / Pre Easter booth at Stars

Ahhhhhhh . . . . . so nice and not cluttered looking with the Valentine stuff cleared out.

(well, ‘not cluttered’ by MY design standards at least!)

I’m seriously considering NOT doing ‘holiday’ stuff anymore in my booth at the antique mall.  The seasonal and holiday stuff was such a ‘necessary staple’ when we had our own shop, that I just kind of got into the routine of ‘planning for it’ and working on it a season ahead of time.

The holiday specific stuff doesn’t really sell that well at the antique mall (except for Christmas); and hardly any of the other vendors do any.  (again, except for Christmas!)

And I’m beginning to feel like the holiday stuff distracts from my regular stock.

NOW I just need to figure out what to do with my time . . .now that I won’t have all those seasonal crafts to work on!  (adding them to my etsy shop is NOT an option either!  Been there.  Tried that and it’s just too much stuff to store away until it sells.)

Hopefully, without the ‘extra clutter’ in the way, the regular stuff will sell even better; and I’ll stay busy prepping and restocking that instead of the holiday stuff.

I’m also going to put some real effort into not piling quite so much regular inventory into my space.  It might sell better if it’s more easily accessible.  (Not that sales aren’t GOOD . . .they are!  I’m hoping to make them better!)

I really do LOVE simple little displays like this stack of old book and nest in a jar.

Alas, I tend to display more like this: the shelf nearly disappears with all the stuff on it.

P1250526Easter stuff will be arriving next week; along with more ‘general spring’ stuff; birds, nests etc.

  1. I have had the same experience with my booth here in Virginia. Seasonal stuff just doesn’t sell. I’ll try next Fall and Christmas to move those now stored items some other way besides trying to sell them in my space. I’m going to rearrange my booth so that the furniture pieces aren’t all covered up with smalls. As you said about your shelf, I tend to overload my pieces, making them hard to see. I have to find a happy compromise somehow. Thanks for your timely post!
