Booth Work

I had to go over to the Barn to work on my booth today, it was getting pretty messy looking! It amazes me how somebody can pick something up to look at it and never put it back where it belongs! And I had sold several things this month, so there were some empty spaces! Yah!

There is a chandelier in my booth that I put junk (treasures) on instead of prisms, as I was dusting I realized someone had stolen the little bottles right off the chandelier!! Can you believe this! To top it all off, they had to stand in something to even reach the chandelier! Of all the things they could have taken, it was a couple of 50 cent bottles! Crazy!

I did a major move around, sweep the floors and enjoyed playing for a while! Hope you enjoy the pictures! If you see anything you would like to have just drop me an e-mail.

It all looks so nice and inviting. You really have that 'special' touch I love the assemblages you did in the ornate frames, so cool! Then ofcourse theresa all of the creamy white and silver, perfect. It makes me want to find somewhere nearby where there is a shop like that! ~ Theresa

Everything looks great. I would like to go shopping there! :)
Unfortunately - Yes I can believe someone went to that much trouble to take something.

If you find the thief, I'll hold 'em down while you kick 'em. I hate stealers. Sorry to hear about their visit to your kick booty, beautiful space! It all looks marvelous! ~Mindy

sassytrash said...

Your booth looks wonderful!! (...and that headboard is TDF!!)
Do you and Craig lift all that big stuff? I have to pass up the massive pieces, since I hate to bother my boys to help me, even though they don't mind. You are amazing as always!

Everything looks beautiful! Wish my booths looked like that ~ LOVE the Gilbert clock - but then I have a weakness for clocks, don't ask me why! Sorry to hear about the petty thief - they are just pathetic, pitiful people who would do that. I had someone PRY open my china cabinet, damage the oak wood, to steal some jewelry. We all know where we hope they travel to when the time comes. Beautiful job - awesome items, love your blog!

Your reorganized booth looks wonderful! I can't imagine EVER getting tired of the white/off white look. It's so peaceful,

Frustrating to have stuff taken, isn't it. And it doesn't matter if they are 50 cents or $5 -- it's the principle of the matter! I just hate when that happens.

Thanks for sharing some great pics!

Rebecca said...

Hey,
I love your booth it looks fabulous! Love the silver, can you give me a price on the sugars and the little set up front on the mantel? I could write a book on shop lifters...I had someone walk out with a huge urn once and someone yanked down a 10' French lace curtain I had wired to the ceiling, roll it up and walk out with it...1200 bucks worth. I got so I would only let myself be upset for 15 minutes, when I found something gone...it just isn't worth it.
Hope you have a good night
Blessings

Your booth is amazing...I love so many things! Wonderful whites....I'm trying to control my 'I want ums'!

It's just so sad that customers often just don't respect your hard work and just mess things up..or worse yet, steal! I guess it's just part of the business..just makes me crazy!

Have a great day,
Susie
