Whose up for a little field trip today?? But first, let me say congratulations to Janet from Maine for winning my blogiversary giveaway! She has been notified and her package is on the way. Thank you to everyone who entered!
Alrighty now let’s go visit my booth, shall we? If you’re new around here, I have a booth at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell all my made-over treasures.
Sweet friends, the last time we took a trip to my booth was in the Spring (see that post HERE), and it looked something like this:
I had a lot of furniture and it was almost at max capacity. Each time I visit and drop off new pieces, I take a few photos. I think it’s fun to see what comes and goes.
I also brought in my favorite kids’ table and chair set that I’ve redone:
Its first makeover was a girly one and it had sat in my booth way too long, so I took it home to give it a redo. It turns out one of the chairs was broken, but luckily it was an easy fix, and I and gave it a new look anyway.
Here’s the other side of my booth with that big white hutch I redid:
The desk and chair set sold as well as the kids’ table and chair set, so I moved my kidney shaped desk/dressing table into that spot on the wall (The matching chair sold almost right away when I brought it in.):
It sold not long after moving it there. I love walking into my booth to see those red “SOLD” tags!
Then I popped in a week later and the blue antique hot mess dresser had sold as well. Yay and crap…I need to find more stuff!!
I decided to move a few things around and moved the white hutch over to this side:
I brought in this pretty serpentine dresser to put where the hutch was. I was finally able to part with it:
I also brought in this antique high chair…
And this sweet little bookcase as well:
That bookcase sold and I brought in my TV cabinet turned storage armoire:
That didn’t last long and I came in to find that the hutch had sold as well:
My poor oval French provincial tables (the mate is on the other side) are still here. I decided to take them home and paint the tops all white. That seemed to freshen them up.
Then I brought in this pretty blue white washed dresser I redid not too long ago:
I found that silver teapot made into a lamp at a yard sale this summer. I just bought a shade for it.
I also picked up these sweater pillows recently at at the thrift store. There were a bunch of them that looked brand new as if they had been made to sell and this is what was left over. These were the only two that I liked though…
I don’t often find things I can just tag and put in my booth, and these have already sold!
And here is the state of my booth right now:
You can see my little black bench peeking out at the back there. Looks a wee bit out of place in a sea of light colors, but hopefully it will sell quickly.
That striped dresser needs to find a home soon. I have been keeping my eye out for a small night table that I can paint to match to make it a set.
Things always eventually sell though. They just need the right buyer to come along!
