Booth Redo

Hi Bloggerettes!  You won't believe what I've been doing for the past few days.  Another space became available at the antique mall.  It was more open and had better lighting, so my booth co owner and friend Peggy and I decided to move our entire booth to this available spot!
Calls us crazy because we are!  Our knees, hands and feet were worn out, we were dog tired, giddy and determined to get it done!  Just look at all this stuff we moved, crammed, stacked and fluffed!!!

So, without further ado, I'll show you some pictures of our new space for Perfect Imperfections....Warning, this post is photo heavy!

Hope you enjoyed looking at our booth.

Now, I'm going blog hoping and I'm going to try and catch up on my comments and visits.  I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments and if I fail to answer a question right away, please forgive me.  I will do my best to get back to each and everyone of you.
It's because of you that I stay inspired and happy.

Looks great, Sissie! Your certainly were busy and I can't even imagine the two of you moving all that stuff to your new space. I can't believe you when you say you don't know how to figure out your bookcases at home; you do such a great job of display here! I could just see you lifting that bird display {print and all} and putting that right on one of your shelves.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh my that was a lot of work! It looks beautiful and I know you are glad it is done! hugs, Linda

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Oh how I wished I lived closer to you so I could come visit your booth! It looks chock full of wonderful treasures!~Hugs, Patti

Donna said...

Wow, wow, wow! Are you sure that you don't want to open up a shop here in Michigan, Sissie? Your displays are amazing! My very favorite thing is that darling bird with the crown hanging. And the birdcage is awesome, too! Best of luck with your shop!!

Kathy Martin said...

Your both is so gorgeous! Would love to be able to see it in person! :)

Sharon Wengel said...

As always it's beautiful, so many pretty things.
You have to be doing well !

Denise said...

Heather and I have moved our booth several times. It IS na back breaker for sure! We do usually see our sales pick up right after, though. As gorgeous as your booth looks, your sales should be booming.

Elaine said...

Your booth is beautiful and I hope the new spot serves you well and it is full of holiday shoppers.

Annie Louise said...

Hi Sissie.....you booth is so pretty....I can tell you and your partner are really putting your heart and soul into your business......GOOD FOR YOU!!



Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sissie, it looks so nice. I have heard it is a lot of work doing a booth. I am going to check it out around here and see what it costs.

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Sissie,
Oh your booth looks amazing and I could surely shop here for hours. Love it!! Such an inviting space that just draws you in to shop.

I can also relate to the moving, rearranging and taking another booth when one is available. I too had booths in 3 antique malls over a 10 year time span. I moved so many times to bigger spaces and worked for hours to set them up and display the pretties. I know it is a lot of work. But so rewarding for the final look like you achieved. It is stunning and I hope you sell it all.

Hope you enjoy a special Cnristmas!
Hugs from Texas,
Celestina Marie

Peggy said...

Your booth looks beautiful!
I had to close my space down a few months ago because I just wasn't making any money there. I do miss it. Maybe I'll try it again someday.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Absolutely stunning, Sissie! I love your style. Your pillows are so precious! Well worth the effort! Celebrate with a hot soak in the tub and a cold glass of wine!


The Polka Dot Closet said...

I love looking at other peoples booths! Great stuff Sissy! What a lot of work, it would have been worth it if you had not redone it in a while, but you just moved in! Oh well, now you are in a spot you like and light is so important! Sissie, skip answering me, I know your there!

What a beautiful post Sissie. I love the details and the urn is just beautiful. I can only imagine how gorgeous it must look in person. Thank you for sharing your beautiful booth with us, I have enjoyed getting lost in the "Perfect Imperfections".

Lululiz said...

Oh Sissie, its gorgeous! I am very frustrated now though, because all I want to do is pick up everything, lol, and I am a few thousand miles too far away. You have some very beautiful treasures in your booth, and it is all displayed perfectly.

Your booth looks beautiful Sissie! Lovin' the pink wand:@)

Tarnished and Tattered said...

I LOVE it! Where are my keys? I'm taking a road trip to go buy that sweet bird nest, a couple of those awesome pillows, a cloche, the white ceramic birds...oh & that lantern. After all that I probably can't afford the chandy with the cool beads hanging. Maybe I'll put them on layaway.
Hope your having a more productive week than
me. I'm starting to get the holiday panic attacks!
