Red Barn


I must say the Red Barn experience was a fast one! Having only a few hours to set up usually freaks me out! I prefer a 2 day set up, that way you have more time to ponder how the displays have turned out! I never know how things are going to come together, I just set stuff out on a table and let the items speak to me! Silly, I know! But that's how the process works for me!
I love looking at great displays, and when I walk into someones booth and my mouth falls open, I'm captured by all the beauty! You can have great stuff and if it's not displayed in a way that captivates your audience, then you've failed. But you can have so, so stuff and display it in a way that makes people want to buy it all you've succeeded! I love the art of display, yes I think it is an art!
This is not some of my best work, it was a rush job! Hope you enjoy!

You may not have had much time to set up, but everything looked wonderful. I do agree with you it's all in the way you display your merchandise.

Looks good to me! :-)
I had a carport sale with someone a while back, and she had closed her antique booth space right before the sale. A couple of customers wanted to know who owned a business and I would point to the other girl. They said they could tell, because of how everything was displayed. :)

Love your photos and the displays are absolutely outstanding!!!! They are all works of art.

I really love displays that are "decorated" not just a bunch of stuff. You gave your customers ideas on how to use the items at home-that is always helpful! I think your booth turned out really nice!

Miss Gracie's House said...

Gorgeous! I do so get you...I drive others crazy but if I can't do (display/vignette) it right I'd rather not do it at all...maybe someday I'll get to see your treasures (and *art*) in person!

oh these displays are just lovely. This is making me so jealous. I am definitely going to have to visit more often. I signed up as a follower and added you to my blogroll. I am just a beginning blogger, getting back into blogging again.
Have a blessed day.
