The Halls are Decked!

 I have been 100% obsessed focused on getting all of the Christmas priced and staged for the "booth", which is really just a set of shelves.  I am happy to say that I am DONE!
 I went over on Saturday and Sunday mornings and started feeding it in.  I think I have crammed in about two-thirds.
I think this Annalee Santa looks kind of "Grinchie" - LOL!
  I still have some vintage kitchen left to rotate out for the season.  Rotating out the non-seasonal merchandise is my frustration.  Not everyone buys Christmas but the space is so tiny that I really don't have room for both so have to figure out where I'm going to store the off-season stuff.  I think I'm going to throw my name back in the hat for a bigger space before next year.  Anyone else have this issue??
 These are all phone photos and I can't back up far enough to get good pictures so I apologize for the wonky angles and poor quality.
 I held back a few things I still have to list on Etsy but I'm pretty burned out on Christmas at this point and looking forward to a break so I can look at something else for a while and get interested again for my own decorating.
 I can't believe I put some of these ornaments in the booth and might have to snatch a few back for myself!  I am proud to say that I was at The Bins today and found a couple of plain Shiny Brites and I PUT THEM DOWN.  Step away from the ornaments, Kathy.
 I hope the ornaments survive in this wire basket.  I was thinking of putting a wooden bead garland across the back and hanging them from that but they stuck out too far so they made the top shelf kind of unusable.  Fingers crossed.  And toes. These are the good ones.
 The Peanut gallery.
This little knee hugger is my favorite.  He has a bell inside and jingles when you move him.
If you are still here at the end of this long post - thanks for listening!

High five to getting this all priced and out. It looks great! Nice to have it out of your house and hopefully into the hands of buyers!

I did finally get some Christmas to the booth this weekend. Not nearly enough, though! I'll be working on getting more ready over the coming week.

Your booth looks fantastic. For someone who had a tough time finding a little elf for my house, and who didn't but my BFF did at a rummage sale in Henderson NV, I think the peanut gallery of little elves will sell well. Yes, I think it would be a good idea to put in for a larger space and see what happens. If you don't like the space or it is too pricey, you can always say no. Another idea I have is that I wonder if you are on Facebook? Or Instagram? These might be avenues to try for promoting your space where you live. Just an idea.

Enjoy, Marrianna

Kathy, you are more on your shelves than most people get in a big booth. Great job, and great variety!
