My antique booth had a serious mid-winter case of the "blahs". I was tired of everything in it, and wasn't inspired to redecorate, and didn't have much in the way of new merchandise to perk things up.
The cure? Explain your dire predicament to a talented friend and ask for help. That's how I got Karla to redo my booth. She took on the main part of the booth, and regrouped every single item to make new displays.
Not only did she "verve" my booth, she took the pictures, too.
It must have worked, because I've sold a lot out of my booth since it's "makeover"... and I feel so much more enthusiastic about it. Whenever you're stuck on a project, it can help so much to get a second set of eyes (and in this case, hands) on it.
This was the part of the booth that I merchandised. It's brighter than the look I usually show on my blog. I happened up on a bunch of old games that had great graphics and I thought they'd make a fun themed display.
I had some good shopping at an estate sale and auction this weekend, so I'll be restocking my booth tomorrow (Sunday).
This is another picture that Karla took- at my house. I thought I'd share it because it has some of my favorite things- pieces of Belleek pottery, a little mercury glass vase, a velvet cuff bracelet made by Karla, a sweet sachet from Linda of Willow Nest, and old thread box from "the other Karla's" mother, a WPA undressed Betsy Ross model and behind that, a journal from Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered.
