This past week has been really rough, but life goes on, and I still had stuff to do. You may have seen on Facebook that Jamie’s dad was in a bad wreck. His truck was t-boned—was spun, then flipped. He’s banged up, bruised and has a broken arm. Since he’s unable to use his left arm, a lot of responsibilities have been added to my plate.
In addition, I am in the process of opening a booth at Vendors’ Village! However, now that I don’t have access to a truck, stocking the booth is going a little slower than I anticipated.
All that being said, I’ve been frequenting the store trying to ready my booth—since I’m there, it only makes sense to look for some good deals, right?
I have no idea why this black lamp grabbed my attention, but I couldn’t help myself. I think it was $6
I saw potential in this small $5 chalkboard. It was in the booth next to mine.
I’m a sucker for a great deal on a picture frame, especially if it’s oddly shaped like this oval frame for $5.
I need another lamp like I need a hole in the head, but for ONE dollar, it was a steal!
While Jamie was in town for my birthday, we ran by Vendors’ Village so she could see my booth and she spied this metal record table on casters. It was only $5, easily under my limit. No additional charge for the rust and nicotine.
Okay, I know you’re curious about my booth. I haven’t been able to do much in the past week, but I’ll show you what I have displayed.
My booth is all the way in the back of the store, on the last wall. My vendor number is 303, but the actual booth # is 169.
You can see the number 169 on the top of the middle wall in the back of the booth.
Here it is—a work in progress on day one.
My cousin Dana made me this wreath a couple of years ago, and I thought it was perfect for the new booth. She sells her wreaths online in her Etsy shop Pink Door Wreaths and Derby Hats.
Every booth has at least one 2×4 brace on the top of the walls. In the day one picture above you can see that I had one piece up to hide the 2×4. I wasn’t wild about how it looked. So, on day two, I tried something different with the drop cloth material.
This is how the booth looks now. I’m hoping to borrow a truck this week to take in some larger pieces to sell.
I think the 2×4 braces will come in handy when I have hanging items to sell.
I’ll be back Wednesday with an easy Thrift Store Décor Challenge project.
