Another Southside Booth

Since our new home is only 5 minutes away from my current southside booth and about an hour away from where my northside booth is, I decided it was better if I moved my big northside booth to the southside.  It couldn't have been more perfect timing, because the big back room at the antique shop where my southside booth is had just opened up!

So come along for a tour.  This first picture is me standing inside the booth looking out.

In the below pictures, a lot of things were kind of just placed wherever, without much thought.  Mom and I spent a good 12 hours organizing this space!

I call the cabinet my "little old lady display."  They tend to like to look in the cabinets in this shop.

This area is my red and yellow kitchen area.

More kitchen-y stuff!

This shelf is blocking our little employee kitchen where we have our microwave and mini fridge.

I have to have a "mantiques" section right when you walk in the room.  Gotta draw the men in!

Not quite done.  I started a red, white, and blue display and I didn't get very far.

I tried to do old toys and cameras on this shelf.  I had to put these juice glasses and swanky swigs somewhere, so they ended up here.

This shelf is blocking our sink.  We plan to put up an antique privacy screen between this shelf and the other above that will fully block our little employee area.

Bottles, bottles, bottles (mostly)!  And I've still got more to put out!

I tried to collect my Hazel Atlas and Fire King pieces on the top 2 shelves of this primitive cabinet.  The rest is stuff that didn't necessarily fit anywhere else.

All my cute planters/pottery pieces and some oil lamps!

I wanted to keep this shelving for mostly farmhouse stuff.  Of course, other stuff had to have a place to go in the end.

And... more afterthoughts....

Would you believe it if I told you I still have lots of more stuff to get in this booth that came out of my northside booth?  Not to mention all the spare stuff I have collected.  AND all the decor that came out of my old house that doesn't fit in my new house... It's a never-ending cycle!

Oh... and guess what weekend it is?  One of my favorites of the summer... its's the US 40 (National Road) Yard Sale weekend!  Here's about the trip and my finds from last year.

  1. Perfect location for you, and I believe without doubt all the hours spent, and all the stuff leftover. We always laugh about that, but laugh even harder once we get it all in. Your space looks brighter and packed with fun stuff. You'll have a whole new clientele there, and maybe your old customers will make the trip too - win-win! I like how toure camouflaging the kitchenette. Good job. Kudos to you & your mom!

  2. Having all your wares in one place so close to your beautiful new home is wonderful. I would love to shop your booth! You have so much great stuff. Good luck in your expanded location.
