my space at the antique mall...

I have my cabinet in Rebecca's booth...
and this was taken a year ago when I first moved in...
a few odds and ends...
and Rebecca hauls it all in there and sets it out...
this was last summer...
after I started doing the hang tags and framed collages...
she has moved her booth 3 times now in the last year...
but she really needs all of her space...
she has so much to sell!
so we are waiting on the antique mall to find a place to stick my cabinet is a space all by itself...
this is a really cool cabinet...
bought it off of another dealer when the mall we were in closed out of no where on us and gave us a week to get out...
she didn't have room to store it and didn't have another booth lined up yet...
so I bought it thinking even if I couldn't do a full size booth...
maybe I could do this...
it sat in my living room for 8 years...
which I loved...
but when Rebecca and I decided to share her booth...
I had the guys take my cabinet in...
it was used in a garage with all the oil cans and stuff stored on the shelves and looked icky...
so I turned in upside down...
walla...
clean shelves without painting!
a lot of the stuff in the photos have sold...
but what's left, when I get moved...
will all come home and only new stuff is going in!

Love the antique canning jars...especially the one with the marbles in it. That is something that I need to get and set out here at the house. I have the jar, but I need the marbles. That shouldn't be too hard to accomplish since so much of the marbles in the world are made here in WV.

Good Morning Tete Sweetie...
I so love this cabinet. I would have grabbed it as well and what a wonderful idea to turn it upside down. Aren't you clever? I love it.

Everything looks so pretty all displayed on the shelves. I would be drawn immediately. I bet you are doing well with your items there.

Snow did you say? Oh dear, sweetie I put on extra sun block today, a little for me and a little for you. I love playing in the sun. Today I will be working, but I spend my breaks and lunch out on the patio. I need my Vitamin D.

Stay warm sweet friend, and have a beautiful day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your display looks wonderful, and how clever are you turning that cabinet upside down!

Thanks for the tips about selling my things, (in the "why are these things so pricey" post.
I had just recently figured out the "put one out of something to see how it sells then price others accordingly." Great tips and I sure appreciate the help.
Blessings and thanks for all your visits to my palce.
