Sooper Sistas booths

I thought I'd show you all a few pics of "The Sooper Sistas" and Sooper Sistas II booths.  This will be the hardest part about moving away but my sister plans to carry on!  I'm sure there will be another "Sissie's Shabby Cottage" booth in my near future. 

For those of you who have spaces in antique shops... you know that it's in your blood and once you've done it you are hooked!

Sister couldn't resist this pretty pink taffeta dress...

 Nothing prettier than vintage nightgowns....they are good sellers too.

 We love vintage tables with patinas like this one....
 Scored this lovely solid wood cabinet by Tale City at the auction...

I know that many of you have lovely spaces and booths and you know what I mean about "being hooked."  It's a great creative outlet as well as a way to make a little extra money.    What's new in your space??

Get out there this week and make, create, sew, photograph, write, bake, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us.



Diane said...'s lovely. Very dreamy. I wish to have a booth one day!

Your booth is lovely. I know how much you will miss it. I would love to do one- we really don't have any places here that rent out space. You will have another one, I know- xo Diana

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Oh man I want that table! It is gorgeous!!

Decorating Lady's Humble Abode said...

Such a pretty space with lovely things for sell. I think that pink ladder would look pretty in a little girls room. Are you closing your both??? I hope not. Thanks for sharing Humble Abode

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I keep telling you I could live in one of your gorgeous. I know you will miss your Sister and doing the booth together~ Hugs, Linda

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Jocelyne said...

Oh so pretty. I've pinned your booth pics on my "booth Inspirations" board. Thank you for sharing such prettiness! I have a booth too and I know what mean about being hooked!

Okio B Designs said...

I can say in all honesty and sincerity that I would probably buy everything in your booth if I was there! Everything is just so beautiful!


Dorthe said...

So many beautiful and wantable pieces in your and your sisters booth.
All the romantic pink and white`s --OH I understand you will miss this Sissie- and hope your sister carries on ,for her to enjoy. I know you will be able to find a new great place for a booth of your own, again.

Judy said...

I would love to know where your booths are. I live in the Huntington - Ashland area and have been following your blog for about a year. Imagine my excitement discovering your pretty things are so close....... I want to SHOP!!!!

Debbie said...

Your booths are always remarkable Sissie! I'm sure you will have another after your move.
LOVE everything you and your sister have displayed.

Char said...

So beautiful Sissy, I have to ask since I have been away for months now, where on earth are you moving to? Would love to know if you will be closer,

Amy Jo said...

Your booth looks beautiful!! I had a booth with my mom several years ago, when I moved I gave it up but... I just signed a contract to do one on my own I am nervous and excited to try it on my own.

Oh Sissie,

It would be hard to leave this! Beautiful items in your shop. I'm glad your sister can continue with the shop.

Shabby chic Sandy said...

Your booth looks great! Are those ruffled angel wings I see? Did you make them? I have been wanting to make some.

Donna said...

What a great space, Sissie! So many pretty treasures. I know you'll find the perfect spot for your own booth when you move:)

Cindy said...

Ohhh, i love vintage nightgowns too. But, what is the deal on the size of women back then! The clothes are so small, with teeny weeny waists! I couldn't fit my leg in some of those waistlines! Your booth looks so delightful... i would have a blast digging around in there. Glad your sista is going to keep it up!


The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh Sissie, it is fabulous! Everything I love, I know you will never be done with having a booth. I went to mine today and I sold tons of stuff, got to get busy!


Katherine Wolak said...

Sooo many pretties! :D So sweet!


ImSoVintage said...

Love your booth. I started one a few months ago, but it just wasn't a good location. I have my online shop which I love and will look for a new booth space next summer when I move to Atlanta.

Gail said...

Your space is beautiful Sissie! I just recently started renting a space at an antique mall. I am having so much fun with it. I was amazed at how well I did my first month there. Now, I've been busy as a bee trying to restock it. Hope you have a wonderful day, Gail

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Makes me want to open one up again. Yours is lovely.
Happy New Year Sissie!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a great space, Sissie! You mean you are moving again?? I have been away for a couple of weeks and I'm just now getting by to see what you've been up to. I must have missed something because I didn't realize you were moving again. Take care and happy hunting!


Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

I too missed your earlier post about moving again! So I just went digging and found your post that explains it. I totally get it and good for you for making the change. We have been in your moving shoes a couple of times. Toughing it out is not the way to go. Good luck to you in making your change and welcome back to NC!

Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

Love your booth!! The pink and white
looks so good in the pictures. And I spy some angel wings!!! So glad you liked my project!

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh dang.... why are all the GOOD shopping spots so darn far away.. So many goodies packed into that 'lil space...

I used to have a space and to be honest....I never want to do it again. Oh yes, I have fleeting thoughts, but then all the memories of all the work involved pop into my head. It was so time consuming.

Happy, HAPPY New Year!


Sares said...

Oh I completely understand! I am sure your sister is going to miss having you as her partner. It is always nice to have someone to share the load with but there are benefits to having a space all to yourself as well. It looks lovely!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

How beautiful! I would be in BIG TROUBLE in your booth. :)

Margie said...

What a great booth...DREAMY
I would like to buy a cermanic lady like the one you have sitting on a vintage table. It looks like she might be a hat stand. Correct?
