Hello beautiful friends! The last time I took ya’ll on a trip to my booth was back in August, so I figured it was time for another visit! How does that sound?
But first, I wanted to let ya’ll know that my Mom loved her new necklace organizer! I had planned to take it to her early Tuesday morning, hopefully before she saw my post, but I was too late…she saw it on my blog. She texted me that she loved it ha ha. See it HERE if you missed it… it was a real trash-to-treasure project!
If you are new around here, welcome! I have a booth at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell all my treasures that I make over.
When I last shared it, it looked something like this:
This was about the time we were moving into our new house, so needless to say, the booth started to become a bit neglected. That white dresser sold pretty quickly, and the night table soon followed, plus most of what was on the backboard. I moved things around a bit and brought in my old sewing table that I refreshed as well as the striped dresser:
That left my booth looking pretty sad. Couple that with me working on house projects instead of inventory for my booth, and you can see my booth ended up in sad shape, poor thang:
With no lamps it was so dark as well!
Still looking pretty sad there.
Those both sold quickly as well. I knew I needed a couple of large pieces and started on the hunt for a hutch. Soon after I found this one:
The chair sold right away.
Looking a bit better here…
This was in April, and unfortunately at this point in the year, business slows way down. My best months are usually January and February.
So I continued to bring things in, like this pretty blue hutch:
I had that metal scrolly thing and the table to the right in our old house, and I can’t seem to give those stools away! Thinking probably because people usually need more than two? Yeah let’s go with that!
I freshened up this black and white dressing table that used to be in our master bedroom at the old house:
Luckily that sold pretty quickly to make room for this delivery I just dropped off yesterday:
Jack was looking to make some money, so he helped with about a dozen chalkboards. They are always good sellers, even when things slow down, and I didn’t have any left at all.
Now my booth is pretty well stocked again…finally!
See this bench again HERE.
As you can see there are a few things that are hanging on for dear life, like this pink and white table set:
That might be coming back home with me next time for a redo!
My white and blue china cabinet is still hanging around as well…
Just waiting for the right person to come along!
Now you can see why I’ve been working on smaller items lately…no more room for furniture!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there, and I’ll see ya’ll back here on Tuesday with some Spring updates in the dining room and how I refreshed this pretty pitcher:
