Hello Dear Friends! Six by Eight Feet... that is what we have to work with!
This is one of my new adventures. I, along with my SIL Robin, MIL Mary, and FIL Richard are going to fill up six by eight feet of space at a local shop. The store is called Ellie Lou's Thrift Emporium. It is a sweet little shop on the main street here in Emporia. The shop is filled with thrift, vintage, antique, and handmade items. The owners are sweethearts... and I look forward to working with them.
I have rented us a space that is six by eight feet... and my darling husband constructed our 'booth' this weekend. He built it from some fence panels we were saving to use in our yard. (I guess three panels won't be needed here on the property any longer.)Here it is set up in our garage... until we dismantle it and move it downtown on Friday morning.
This smaller cabinet was saved from our barn. It was one Tony was going to through out... until he heard and listened to my screams... NOOOOO!!! I revamped it this past weekend... scrapping it with a wire brush to removed the loose paint, washed it, and then gave it a quick coat of Polyurethane to hold the remainder of the paint in place. I plan to add some fabric to the shelves using liquid starch... to add a little 'punch' of prim pizzazz to it.
This other cabinet was one purchased at a local auction for a mere $5. Tony replaced the back with a scrap piece of plywood he had. I then washed it and added a slash of white house paint we had to the inside to freshen it up. (I let the red on the shelf edge stay red... it is my favorite color ya know!)
The cupboards will be filled with our wares... vintage, antique, and handmade... and hopefully will be over~flowing giving our buyers~to~be lots to choose from.
I'll share more pictures after it is all set up in the shop.
Wishing you warm smiles...
