THE BEST DEAL OF THE SHOW!!!

We didn’t have room for this wonderful shabby chic vanity in the area with our other stuff, so it’s up towards the front end (closer to the registers) of the show. We got it at a GREAT price, and didn’t have to do any work on it, so we are selling it for just $39.95! It’s gonna go FAST at that price, so get to the show early!

And that is just the stuff that WE brought to the show! There is lots and LOTS more !!

New pictures of the rearranged store updated 2-24-09

I’ve rearranged nearly the ENTIRE store over the last four weeks.  First we clearanced all the scrapbooking stuff, then worked on ‘phase I’ of the re-do.  Which consisted of moving the majority of the ‘gifty items’ to the back corner where scrapbooking had been.  There is still some of the gifty stuff worked into displays throughout the store, but most of it is now grouped together.  Hopefully that will make it a little easier for those specifically shopping for a gift, to be able to see a lot of gift selections at a glance.

By moving the gift stuff, it opened up the center left side of the store and made room for me to move the entire pink section about 6 feet forward, to make room for the DIY and craft materials section at the back. 

It’s just all ‘kind of crammed in there’.  Pretty much impossible to ‘display’ this kind of stuff; which is why I wanted to be sure this section was at the vary back.  Lots of wood scraps for the ‘do it yourselfer’, and unfinished shelves, benches, boxes, napkin holders, bowl stands and all the ‘little goodies’ to dress that stuff up!

Other than being moved up a little, The pink section stayed pretty much the same.

And the red/yellow primitive kitchen area stayed in the same place and mostly the same.

And that was it for ‘phase I’.  Phase II consisted of completely re-doing both sides of the front of the store. 

I brought in several new black furniture pieces and created a whole new display with that and the existing black pieces.

I’ll be adding more garden decor to this section.

The other side of the front is now the ‘beachy blue’ area; with beach decor, birds and nests and Easter.

And now it’s time to get to work on some more new product!

Recycled cedar fence boards

Adorned with assorted pieces of old hardware.

For the paint on the birdhouses and peg racks I used a ‘dry brush’ technique.
