I finally moved into my new booth at Crystal Hill Antique Mall in North Little Rock last week. I decided to invite my mom to share the booth with me since she has so much unique inventory that I didn’t see in other booths. Her specialties these days are bluebird pottery from the early 1900’s, Turkey cranberry dishes, Currier & Ives, and Shawnee deer planters. I knew she probably had a set of primary color Pyrex mixing bowls too. Plus, with the “bad months” coming, I figured it would be nice to share the cost of the booth. I put our name on the list for a booth when one becomes available so we can have our own separate booths.
Here’s the space we started with: A 10’x19′ clean slate:
They even made me a welcome sign. 🙂
My parents had already started moving into the booth when I got there. We had a lot of work to do!
Here’s the booth after the first day:
I had lots of fun putting together this fall display:
And decking out my Hoosier cabinet. It hid that ugly vent very well.
Since our first move-in day, my parents stopped by and packed out the booth with more furniture. On Monday I got to work in Little Rock and went by the booth during my lunch break. This is the awesomeness that I walked into:
I’ve got more furniture to bring, but I just haven’t had the time to get it there. Good thing is that I sold that neat old desk that’s in the fourth photo from the top within the first few days of opening the booth, so I’ve got my rent made for the two weeks of September. Mom sold the cool bird lamp in the third photo quickly too.
We’re not even close to being done yet. Mom and I are queens of packing booths out, so soon I expect there will be no pegboard showing! We have promised each other that we will keep the booth breezy and shoppable, but we’ll see how it goes. 🙂
