Hello awesome Friends! Today I thought I’d give you a little booth update. For those of you that may be new around here, welcome! I have a booth space at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach, VA where I sell most of the things I make over. I always enjoy seeing other people’s booth spaces, so I thought you might enjoy seeing mine!
I last shared my booth back in the Spring and here is where I left off:
I usually share my booth photos while talking about the larger items that have come and gone. I always have a few things that seem to hang around forever and for so long, it was this oval coffee table in the foreground. It was just waiting on the right buyer I guess because it finally sold! I walked in one day to find one of these coveted SOLD signs on it :
That table and chair set sold at the beginning of the Summer, and I brought in this once very dated hutch:
Some furniture pieces may hang around a bit longer than I’d like, but hutches are always good sellers. They are so versatile and functional. This one sold in couple of weeks. The same buyer also bought the reclaimed wood bookcase to the right in the photo below:
Another furniture piece that has been in my booth way too long is the blue antique dresser in the foreground of that photo. Here’s a better photo from my last booth update:
I loved this piece and couldn’t understand why it hadn’t sold. I finally had a customer that wanted it if I could paint it white. Hmmm. See why I paint SO many things white? I did not repaint it, but luckily it sold to someone else about a week later! (Glad I didn’t agree to repaint it!)
Then I brought in this $5 yard sale buffet:
And this striped dresser:
And that French Provincial End Table:
And that headboard turned chalkboard with the hooks that’s on the striped dresser…
Several of the smaller things in that photo have sold as well the buffet.
After that sold, I brought in Grandma’s vintage dresser:
Then I brought in the taller dresser to match that I have yet to share on my blog…
And the simple matching headboard…
Still trying to unload those birdhouse lamps. One of them has a very loose connection that I need to fix, but keep forgetting. I also have been hanging onto this bulletin board since March!
I love this piece and I would have kept it if I had a place for it. It’s just waiting for the right buyer, I suppose. Another cute piece that has been in my booth a long time is this vintage suitcase:
But luckily it finally sold last month.
This little stool of Jack’s had been here too long as well, so I took it home and added the word “reach” to it.
Hoping that sells for him soon. He sold all of his other pieces he redid.
And here is what it looked like when I dropped off my spindle headboard bench a couple of weeks ago:
You can see my bar stools I redid not too long ago behind the bench:
And you’ll recognize lots of little things I’ve redone like the CD holder turned caddy that’s sitting on the bench. (That sold right away. People love things that have function!)
And this headboard turned coat rack:
And me…hello! Look at that concentration on my face!
Sometimes furniture takes a while to sell so it’s up to the smalls to keep the booth going. Usually I have a bunch of chalkboards that really help with that. I made these at the end of Spring:
But you can see most of them are gone. Need to have another chalkboard painting marathon!
You’ll notice I don’t have a ton of fall décor in my booth, but I did drop off these sweater pumpkins I made last weekend:
Seasonal décor doesn’t do real well in my booth, so we’ll see how these pumpkins do!
I hope you enjoyed our field trip today. 🙂 I am busy working on a fun project that I hope works out. You’ll be sure to hear about it if it does.

I’ll be back on Tuesday with my Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday girls sharing what I did with this small island my neighbor was throwing away:
Have a great day!
