I have been adding things over the last week, which I hope will increase sales. Fingers crossed.
Last week I had two days to move my larger booth in an antique mall here in Lexington, Ky. A space came open in a better location in the mall, and I was excited to make the move.
Here is a photo of how the booth looked the first morning.
Ugh!!! lots of blue shelving and brackets bolted to very dark brown walls.
I fortunately found someone to help me get those brackets off the walls and haul off the loose shelves, but everything else was up to me.
I wanted yellow walls and white shelves, so as much as I am not a painter, I spent day one painting. I think I may have had more paint on me than anything else, but I got it done.
I wish I had more photos to share, but I was so tired by the end of the first day that I didn't think of it.
Day two involved moving everything and it was a big job. I had to do it all in five hours and I'm not quite sure how I got it all moved.
These are photos of how it looked at the end of that day.
By the end of that day I was just barely able to drag myself home to a hot shower. For some reason I seem to think I am still 30.
The next day I went in and strung some electricity from another booth so that I could have lights.
Still lots to do of course. I need to straighten up those messy linens, string another set of lights along the left side, and put all of the lighting on a timer, but I spent some time over the last few days purchasing more inventory and I'll price that and take it into the two booths tomorrow.
I'm also thinking about putting a few items on Ebay. I am waiting on adding a shop to the blog until I see how booth #1 does. Those would be the things that would go in there.
I am so happy to get that done. Now I can focus on some other things in my life and hopefully get back to posting a couple of times a week.
P.S. Pass the liniment please.
