Back down to ONE booth at Stars . .

One VERY FULL booth!

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 009Took 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.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 010But I could not be happier with how perfectly things ‘sold down’ and how smoothly the transition went.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 020I 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’.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 011So 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.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 012Taking 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;.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 013Vintage soap dish ( I think!) makes a cute little cupcake stand.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 016Another 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  (would love to know if any of you DO know what they were originally made for!)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.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 017And some little heart shaped gift boxes that I made.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 014Felt hearts left over from last year.  Still meed to make more new ones!

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 023AWESOME vintage cast plaster cherubs. Very French baroque -ish don’t you think?

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 022If these don’t sell I just might have to take them home and put them in my white craft studio!

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 024Vintage 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.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 026Silver ‘trophy’; just because EVERYONE deserves to win a trophy once in their life!  Could be a ‘best boyfriend’ trophy for your Valentine?!?

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 025Nice glare from the flash, eh?!?!  Oh well!  the cherub still looks cute!

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 027Heart shaped covers on a string of lights.  I really wanted to HANG these, but not sure I have room to!

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 028There’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.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 029Better view of the one on the left.

1.2.13 stars room ribbon 030And 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’.
