Yesterday was the day!! Opening day!!
I enjoyed setting up my "wall" so much.
I took Doodle with me to sign the contract and show her the booth. Standing in front of my new wall, the conversation went like this...
Doodle - "So, you aren't getting one of these big ones, you just get this wall with holes?"
Me - "Yes, for now. I might get a bigger, open booth down the road."
Doodle - "Hmmmm."
On the way home....
Me - "I'm going to come back later to set everything up and decorate my booth."
Doodle - "It's not a booth...it's a wall."
So much for support from my kid. LOL
So.....being the smarta$$ I am (wonder where my kid gets it, LOL), I am now referring to my
wall booth with grandiose terms such as "My Boutique", "My Shop", "My Storefront", etc. :)
These are not the greatest pictures, I had to use flash and it was closing time, oh yeah, and there's the fact that I don't take the best pictures under normal conditions. LOL But I was able to snap some pictures really quick to show you.
I was not loving the red when I agreed to this space. I figured I would ask if I could paint it in a month or two....but for now, I'm kind of liking it.
I need to cover that wonderful, plastic opening at the bottom. I'm thinking some burlap or something along those lines...a curtain anyway.
And I'm going to make a burlap pennant to hang at the very top of the "wall" to give it some texture and fill in that space.
Some of the items I have for sale are leftovers from my last craft show...which, oh yeah, was EVERYTHING. LOL
Some of them are things I used to use in my own home. And many others are my creations or upcycles.
I used old barn wood my friend gave me for my shelves. And I painted some old Goodwill shelves. And like this one, I added trim and embellishments.
I upcycled things like this small cabinet....which someday I will show you the before, but I'm working on my brand new laptop today and
am too lazy to get didn't have access to my old pictures for this post.
I started from unfinished wood on pieces like these little boxes.
Painted old ugly brass lamps to make cute new lamps.
Assembled and painted wood picture/recipe holders.
And glued and painted other upcycled Goodwill finds.
Just a reminder, for any locals. My new "boutique" is at:
County Line Emporium
1285 N. State Rd 135
Greenwood, IN 46143
I'm so stinkin' excited about this opportunity, I think I've got a perma-smile on! :)
And thank you so much to all you and your support!! Without some of you, I probably never would have built up the courage to make this step!!!
