Shop Talk

This is my favorite time of the year for having a booth. This is actually my second time being at

Crompton Collective

for Christmas. I'm so excited to display Christmas and winter decor.

I really try to bring in a lot of handmade items. I also like to have vintage items. I went in last week to start getting my space ready. Since I can get in until the week after Thanksgiving this is the best time for me to start. Not everyone wants to see Christmas before turkey day but when you have a booth or a shop you need to. This year Christmas is 3 weeks after Thanksgiving. So its coming fast. 

I made some stag head pillows like I did last year. These are handmade by me and the pillow forms are completely made in the USA! I brought in the

fur stool

but it sold fast. I will make more when I find more stools. 

I brought in my twiggy Christmas tree for displaying my newest ornaments for this year...and few from last. I love the way this tree looks...its not to full and its easy to add ornaments. I could have gone bigger. I placed it in a metal tub to make sure it doesn't tip over.

I did do two stag head pillows in Chevron fabric also. 

I brought in a few of my

felt wreaths

in different sizes and one in gray.

I still haven't shared this metal bench make over...

.hopefully soon.

I made some new Christmas flour sack towels and a spoon and fork one. 

a Swiss cross one....and I'm hoping to start selling these towels in my etsy shop. 

Here is the forest mobile I created and a vine wreath with a stag head clay ornament inside. 

I made new cupcake toppers

with wood grain paper on the back for a rustic touch.

This is a very cool rattan set....it didn't fit in my space so I have it in the middle next to me. 

and that's it......for now. I have way to much more I can bring. I have vintage tin toys, bar art, mid century art, old blankets, newly painted furniture including another bench,small decorative moss Christmas trees and much more. Hopefully I can get it all in before Christmas.
