Packing Out

Last Sunday I found out the date I can pack in at the antique mall had moved up to this week so I have been wringing my hands and frantically preparing.  I have my display shelves staged on the patio and have been deciding what to bring, staging and pricing. Sorry the back light makes this photo so hard to see.
The angle on these photos is a little wonky because the patio table is in the way.
Things sitting on the floor will actually go on a shelf that is at the top of the dividing wall on the back of the wall space.  The pillow cases in front of the red plate will be hanging on the side of the shelf.
I hope I have a good variety for different tastes while I find out what goes and what doesn't.
My little wall space is about 7 feet wide, 7 feet high and 10 inches deep so it is all smalls.
I hope it isn't so packed that everything turns invisible but 155 little tags later and I think I'm ready!
Thursday afternoon I can get in to put up the wall covering then pack in on Friday.  I will take photos once I am all set up. Wish me luck!

Oh how exciting! Pack it in, the more you have the more you sell! People love a treasure hunt....I can't wait to see it all set up!

Best wishes!!! I know you will have fun putting all of the goodies in the shop. I wish I could be there, because there are a few things I NEED! Enjoy!

Hi Kathy, it is going to be amazing. Yes, pack it all in and then some. The more you have the more you'll sell. I used to really over stock my spaces because they can empty out quick between visits to restock! You have wonderful treasures there.
Have fun and all the best!! cm

Everything looks great and I'm sure you'll do well. I'd certainly want to shop your space!

One glance at your pictures tells me that your treasures will be flying out of there. You better be ready to restock right away!!!

Everything looks wonderful. I know good lighting will be a must have for your space. And it looks like you will have it. I so look forward to seeing your photos after everything is set up and before it all sells out. I know you are going to do great and that this has been a long time dream of yours. Keep us all posted.

Blessings,
Marrianna

I will echo the other comments in saying I hope you have a good bit of back up because this will empty out quickly! Your display looks great and your diverse merchandise is wonderful. I see many things I would like to buy so keep up the good work and can't wait to see it in person!! (You might think about running by on Sunday to see if you need to restock!)

Looks great, Kathy! Can't wait to see it in person next time I'm at Monticello! I think it's great that you're getting your feet wet with a small space--seems manageable, not so overwhelming as a big booth. I'm sure it's still taking up plenty of real estate in your head, however!! Don't stress too much--stuff is going to fly off your carefully arranged shelves!! Best of luck!

Annette said...

I would definitely stop at your space! You have a good variety of stuff and I have no doubt that you will do well. I can't believe how giddy I am for you!

You have a lot of great stuff. Best of luck!
