I'm all set up!

Went to the Antique mall today and finished setting up my space. I have this wall and a few feet out from it.

The chest isn't mine, It belongs to the Mall. The manager was nice enough to let me use any mall props I wanted. I even got to go through her store and pick out some small accessories to dress it up. That is her scale there, and I used some of her old bottles on my shelves, and doilies here and there etc.


I'm so grateful to the mall for giving me this space. I need to take baby steps and this way I feel I have nothing to loose. If things sell well, I may end up renting but for now we are doing this consignment. I'm not real experienced at merchandising, but I think I did OK.

Now cross your fingers for some great sales.

Margo, obviously I didn't completely read your post as to the location of the Old City Antique Mall (too busy ogling your great booth space!!!!) I will come visit soon- As to your post to me, lucky you for establishing long ago that you "don't cook". I don't cook as often as I used to either. The kids are always busy, at work or school, and sometimes it's cheaper for DH and I to go grab a quick bite by ourselves. Only thing is, those "quick bites" add up on my hips! Vickie

The booth looks great Margo.
My friend has a few booths in different antique shops and she uses twigs, books, vintage cards etc. to dress up her booth. Just some ideas you might want to try.
I hope you sell it all!

Hi, Margo! It looks good, Girl! You're about to get a new antiques shop addiction! Suggestion: How about adding in some of your Robo Tshirts? Best of everything to you! Sher
