One VERY FULL booth!
Took me close to five hours to get the last little bit of stuff emptied out of the wall space, and displayed in my big booth.
But I could not be happier with how perfectly things ‘sold down’ and how smoothly the transition went.
I really only had to take home ONE piece of furniture, that didn’t sell or wouldn’t fit back into the big booth; and that was the red ‘washing machine cabinet’.
So I ma pretty proud of myself for how carefully I planned everything out over the course of the 2 month sell down. Taking some new inventory in for the first several weeks, but also gradually moving as much BIG stuff over to the big booth each week as I could.
Taking out the Christmas stuff right after Christmas I think helped too. It really made things look BARE, and emphasized that it would soon be gone! Gets people motivated to BUY instead of ‘think about it and maybe come back;.
Vintage soap dish ( I think!) makes a cute little cupcake stand.
Another cupcake stand, this one made from upcycled pieces. I’m not sure WHAT that cherub to the left of it was originally for. A candy dish maybe? I see these cherubs a lot at antique malls, and I even buy them frequently but I’ve never know what they are!?!? (would love to know if any of you DO know what they were originally made for!) They worked perfect to hold a few of my smaller felt hearts.
And some little heart shaped gift boxes that I made.
Felt hearts left over from last year. Still meed to make more new ones!
Wood bead heart ornaments.
Laser cut metal ‘love’ signs that I glittered.
Be mine shelf sitter signs.
AWESOME vintage cast plaster cherubs. Very French baroque -ish don’t you think?
If these don’t sell I just might have to take them home and put them in my white craft studio!
Vintage wall planters that I repainted. Ran out of wall space to hang things, so these are hung on the side of the hutch at the front of my booth.
Silver ‘trophy’; just because EVERYONE deserves to win a trophy once in their life! Could be a ‘best boyfriend’ trophy for your Valentine?!?
Nice glare from the flash, eh?!?! Oh well! the cherub still looks cute!
Heart shaped covers on a string of lights. I really wanted to HANG these, but not sure I have room to!
There’s another one of those cherubs in back on the left! This one I filled the top with clear heart ornaments with little keys attached. The one in the middle was a candle holder; I put the nest over the candle hole. Another one on the right (partially hidden by the table leg!) I filled with moss and added a little egg.
Better view of the one on the left.
And the one on the right that I put the nest in. This one, I could actually see as having been a VASE, because it IS open clear to the bottom. Most of them though, just have a ‘small shallow bowl’.
Vintage cherub lamp base that I upcycled into a dessert pedestal!
