Pictures of my first booth!

I was unmotivated today, and my son was refusing to clean up today so I left him home with his grammy and took my daughter out for lunch and shopping! :) We first went to check on my antique booth. I just hung the backdrop on the back wall of my booth yesterday and I have been having nightmares about the backdrop falling and bringing the mirror down with it. Everything was still in place and I found out I sold two items today! My booth is no where near finished. I still need to add more backdrops when I find them, and bring in furniture pieces when my hubby is able to help me, but I couldn't help snapping some pictures this time. I only had my phone with me so the pictures are a bit grainy. Sorry 'bout that.

I did it. I did it. I really really did it!

I have resisted posting this picture for quite a while, but I just can't any longer! I have no good reason other than to add a picture to this post. It is one of my favorites of my sweet kiddos. We took it last year at a nearby museum that has this old tractor in the back.

I would have some photos for this post, however I keep forgetting to take them when I am at the antique booth fluffing it up. Yes! I finally got my booth set up at the antique mall. I am very excited about it, and I have been spending too much time either at the booth, looking for items to put in the booth, working on items to put in the booth, or dreaming about the booth.

Now it isn't exactly "finished" yet. I was baby sitting when I rented the booth so I had very little time that I could get to the booth while it was open. Then the first week I was not babysitting we went out of town. We are back now and I am working hard on it.

I have gotten quite a bit in the booth, and hung eyelet curtains on the back wall as a backdrop. I am now trying to finish up the furniture I am refinishing. I am also trying to figure out how to get it all to the booth. I think I need to buy a truck now that I have a booth.

I have averaged almost one sale a day without it being set up completely and during the slow period (I am told) so I am very hopeful that I will do well in my booth. The owner had some great things to say about my booth which is very encouraging!

Will take pictures soon. Can't wait to show it off! Now that I have that off my chest I better go read some more Sally Clarkson. Night y'all! :)
