In November of 2011 I had the awesome opportunity to rent my very own space in an antique and handmade shop. I had added my name to a wait list only a month before and knew my chances to getting into the shop was slim. So needless to say I was very surprised to get the call that there were booths available due to an expansion and even more surprised to get the call in the middle of the crazy holiday rush.
I made a mad dash to create as much as I could so that I had plenty of items for both my new booth and the holiday shows that I had signed up for. The photo above is what things looked like the day I moved in. The photo below is what things looked like those first few weeks after I moved in.
In the next several months my booth changed many many times. Every few weeks and months I would load new items into my booth, carting past holiday items out and new items in.
My family and I will be making the move to Louisiana next month and I am getting things checked off a huge to-do list. One of those steps towards moving was having to say goodbye to my booth. I ended up being in there for a total of 19 months. It was a great run and I learned tons. It was a sad moving day, but it puts us one step closer to moving.
I decided to share a bunch of photos of my booth from different seasons along the way. I have always been curious how other people set up their retail booths so I figured that others may be curious too! So feel free to browse my photos and hopefully get inspired!
Knowing that I was going to be having to move all these goodies back home soon, I put everything in my booth on sale. Here is what my booth looked like right before the sale…..
And in the end my booth was empty again. So since I had to bring all these lovely items back to my home (and I have a stockpile of past holiday items) I decided to have a HUGE liquidation sale in my home. I am putting all my stuff on sale and opening up my home for an all day sale. I mean, I need to lighten my load before the move right??? So far I have 82 people coming for my liquidation event. EEK!!! Stay tuned for fun updates to come!!!
