Booth Update!!!

It has been a full month since we moved into the new booth and while stuff hasn't been flying off the shelves like I had hoped, items are selling better than they did at the case in my old antique mall.  This what it looked like the first day:

And a few weeks ago in this post I mentioned how The Mom and I did some styling and arranging at the booth. Please excuse the bad phone pics.  I can't seem to get it together enough to remember my camera.  
It made such a huge difference!  The ladies that work at the mall said they get a lot of good comments about it and people love it!  Score one for us!  The Mom and I will change it here in a few weeks with some kind of festive holiday phrase.  So between the above picture and this one, not much sold.  One kitty and a Pyrex bowl were all that moved in 10 days.  It was kind of a bummer, but I wasn't going to give up.

This is the booth a full month later, and things have changed quit a bit.  Three pieces of Pyrex (surprises me it wasn't more) sold.  The cool panther planter, GE clock, and my super mod candle holders, among other things, also went home with happy customers.  I'm really excited to see some of these things selling.  I just have to feel this out for a few more months to see what people like the most and to make sure that the items are priced just right. 


Does anyone do anything different or special to get ready for the holidays?  

I'm going to head over to Sumo's Sweet Stuff for Market Yourself Monday! I will also be joining the party at Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday.  Have a great week everyone!

  2. The chalkboard wall is such a great idea because it gives you so much flexibility! You could even draw arrows to things you want to highlight or do some of that really cool chalk art with all the different fonts that's so popular now. Your booth looks great!
