~* Our Booth *~

Hello Dear Friends!  Happy Friday to y'all!

There aren't any ~*Friday Finishes*~ to share with you today... but, as promised, I can share our new booth with you.  We worked hard to move it to the shop and set it up this morning.  I am so happy with it... and so excited!  It isn't 'my' store, but I feel like this small space kind of is.

Our booth is at Ellie Lou's Thrift Emporium in Emporia, Kansas.

What do you think?

 I found out after we were there (after Tony built the wood surround for us) that the space is actually 5 by 8 feet. Oh gosh... I felt bad, but Ellie Lou was a great help and we made it work.  Thank goodness!
 We filled our space with handmade, vintage, antique, and all sorts of fun things.
 'We' means... my husband (the boat motor is his), my Mother~In~Law, Father~In~Law, Sister~In~Law, myself... and even my Son put something in it for sale (a vintage cap gun he had us buy at a recent auction).
 My Father~In~Law is our birdhouse builder.  He does a great job & really enjoys making them.
 A little of this and a little of that!
 Remember my dishcloth mania a few weeks ago?  Would you believe I made over 30 of them?!?
 I don't know if you can see it very clear, but this is the barn cabinet I shared in an earlier post.  The fabric on the shelves was put on with liquid starch.  I just LOVE how it turned out.  Unfortunately, I can't offer the cabinets for sale yet...  if they were to sell, all our other things would be sitting on the floor.  So, we are headed to another auction this weekend... maybe I can find more treasures!

I wish I could be a fly on the wall... I'm just so excited!

Wishing you all warm smiles...



  1. Looks like a great booth filled with lots of wonderful things and so much is handmade! Love how your fabric is on the shelves.
    Have fun on your treasure hunt!

  2. I have the same pot bellied oil heater that you have! It was my Husband's Grandmothers, and I re-painted mine in flat black/gold. I might just re-paint it white! Thanks for the great idea!
