Stepping out of my Comfort Zone

As some of you may know, I had a bad experience last year with the antique mall I was at. Sales were great, dealers were great, Management wasn't so great. So I moved out and had my Yard sales, sold on ebay etc. But I was missing the whole booth/store thing. So I've decided to take the plunge again at another place, and this place is only 4 miles from my home, can't beat that. First I talked with other dealers that have booths there, asked questions about sales, management, rules, rent etc. It all sounded good. Then I went up there and talked to the management and it is still good. So guess what-I'm gonna do it. I should be able to start moving in Feb 1. I'm sure I'll be updating you with pics and progress so stay tuned.

The place is called Our Little Corner, and if you are a Tyler area local, it's located near the Noonday Fire Department. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to make a visit. Turn outside the loop onto 155 towards Noonday. Go several miles and you'll see it behind the blue store on the right side of the road, just past the fire station. I'll be sure to let everyone know when I'm having my grand opening. Oh this will be fun (I hope).

Now for a project, Remember the styrofoam dress form I bought in Malakoff on Saturday.
Well here it is now.

This was real easy, I just decopaged old patterns to the styrofoam. What I like is the different colors of pattern paper. I may just keep this now.

If you haven't read about my trip to Malakoff be sure to read the post below.

And I've finally gotten my Soldering e-book done
By Popular Demand, Soldered Bottle instructions now available.

Sorry we didn't get to meet at Lillie's. Wasn't that a great time and isn't her shop fantastic? I came away wanting to open one, too. Thankfully that feeling passed. Your dress form looks great and totally different. Good luck on your new adventure. Debbie

Margo, a dealer by the name of Sandy here in Huntsville is in a shop in Noonday, I think she said it used to be an old filling station, but I don't remember. What I do remember is her saying she was doing really well in that shop. Hope you do good! I too think I'm going to take the plunge and move in a shop also not too far from you. I'll keep you posted.

I hope this one works out much better for you. It can be difficult to find a reputable place with solid management.
