Shop Talk: Christmas Time

I love this time of the year. Its my favorite holiday. I really enjoy filling my booth with fun and festive decor.
This is what my booth at Crompton Collective looked like last week. 
I wanted to share photos of my space when I went a week before so I will be sharing those in between. I have been going once a week to re stock.

This was how it looked a week before

I moved some pieces around to make room for this bench I painted. I love the pillows on it. 

This is how it was before. I sold the arrow desk and the blue dresser

I sold all but one of these moss trees. 


I brought in this vintage solid wood ironing board a few weeks ago and I love it as a table. It doesn't wiggle.

Last week I moved it over by my towels and cards to change things up.


I love my twiggy tree....its different then most fake tabletop trees and I like that you can see through it. It makes a great display for my ornaments 


old tin typewriter, counting machine and a wood milk truck

Not the best photo...this little table was recently painted and distressed for a shabby look. 



I brought in this old nightstand with a floral design on the front. Its french. I love the way it is so I brought it in that way. 

And lastly another photo of the bench. The vintage blanket adds warmth. 

I'm heading to the shop tomorrow to bring in some ornaments and my popular Massachusetts ornaments. 

Also my etsy shop is closing at midnight eastern time on the 13th. This way I can finish all my orders and start enjoying family time.

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.

In My Space & Vintage Wedding Weekend

 Friday I hustled to get everything finished, priced and packed in the car to go to Crompton. Technically I've been going crazy for the past two weeks to get everything done. 

But I did and everything I wanted to go is now set up in my space.

This weekend was all about the vintage wedding week

I will be sharing more details on some of my work during the week including a few makeovers.

I worked on signs, chalkboards, my clay buntings and tags

I finished the other armoire to chalkboard. 

 another stenciled mini dresser

 this fun 3 tier shelf, filled with the pots I up-cycled.

I'll be back with details on the signs and the furniture makeovers.
