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 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.

Shop Talk: My Booth At Crompton Collective

Its been a while since I shared my booth at Crompton Collective.

These photos were taken a week ago. 

I still need to add items to my for sale page on here and I still have some furniture makeovers to share from the vintage bazaar. 

I brought in my fall display and a few gourds and min pumpkins. 

I painted a typewriter cart in a bright yellow. This was done in early September for the bazaar. 

I found this pretty vanity mirror tray in along with milk glass and floral tea cups and saucers. 

I will be sharing the before and after of the piece that's under the tray next. 

A couple of my large pieces in my booth have special tags on them....a percentage of the sale will go to the Susan G Koman Foundation for the month of October. 

This black sofa table which I haven't shared the makeover yet also sold recently. 

I actually cant wait for thanksgiving to be over with so I can decorate my space with Christmas decor! 

This week I'm working on getting my new winter tags up in my etsy shop. I want to be ahead this year and listing is always time consuming. I managed to get 6 up last night and I'll be adding more tonight. 

My antlers are my new favorite this year. 

Now I need to package orders to mail out and work on new ones. Have a great day.

I'm also excited to share my newest collection of clay arrow jewelry that will be added with in the next week. I have already put some in my shop space but have more that I'm currently working on.

I love arrows and geometrical designs so when I created this necklace I was thrilled with the way they turned out.

I'm using fun colors. I also have a few triangle necklaces.
