It is a vintage political/physical map of obviously the US, but South America is sneakily hiding behind there too! I'm kind of a geography dork (kind of a dork in general really) so it totally makes me smile to see it. Not only is it adding color to a naked area, we are learning when we look at it! And The Little Dude is going to grow up looking at it. For that reason, I decided not to get a vintage world map because I didn't want him telling his teacher one day that what she was pointing at is not Russia, but The USSR!
Also, what do you think of my little table display? That tube in the middle is a Pyrex Bake n' Round full of the Shiny Brites that didn't make it to the booth. The candy cane place mats were made by yours truly last year with that stiff felt you can get at the craft store. Everything but the little trains (they came from this etsy shop here) was thrifted.
In other news, my booth is doing really well! I'm selling Christmas ornaments like crazy. And my mall has this great system now that sends out an email at the end of the night with a sales report. This is really cool because now I don't have to go in and figure out what I need to restock, then go back home and get it. I know ahead of time, and that I think is going to be hugely helpful. How is everyone else doing in your booths or online shops? Is the holiday season treating you well?
