Finanlly some pictures

I have been so busy I have not had a chance to take pictures of the new items I have completed, and some pictures of my new booth set up, but mostly just because I have a crummy camera and the the person taking the photos (me)  is not so hot at it either. I really like my new space and hope it continues to be successful!

Widow to my booth

Yes that is a sink in my booth. the back of my booth use to be a washroom.

Moving On Up!

That's right I'm moving on up! After a very successful week at my booth site, I have now moved up to a larger booth, and I really love the new spot. I  have a room all to myself it is a small room but once again it is progress. My son, Jordan, and I went down today and moved into the new site. I decorated for fall and it looks really nice. I will post the pictures later this week. As far as new projects go, hmmm... lets see...... I am currently working on a chest of drawers, media table and an end table. I will also post the  pictures of the finished projects later this week. Jack and I are planning on a weekend getaway and I am going to try and squeeze  in a trip to the out of town antique stores as well.

I am feeling really blessed to be able to do what my heart has longed to do. There is nothing better than being able to work for yourself, and the fact that people have come into the shop and have purchased stuff from my site to put in their homes really blows me away.

Booth Update

Well after little to no sleep Friday night. Jack and I loaded up the truck early Saturday morning with some of my inventory for my booth space. We arrived at 7am and started unloading the truck and moving furniture and accessories into my spot. I can't tell you how excited and nervous I was at the same time.
After about 2 1/2 hours later with everything in its place, staged and tagged, we left the shop and hoped for the best. I had bittersweet feelings about leaving the pieces I had worked so hard on. I grew attached to these pieces of furniture after the time I spent working on them. I hoped that someone would  see the beauty in them that I did.

While we were having a late  breakfast, I got a call from the shop owner that my large dresser had sold. I almost dropped my cell phone when he told me because we had just left the shop and  I could not believe that my stuff was going to sell that fast. He also told me that a few more of my items had sold as well. I can't tell you how happy I was that all my hard work was paying off. So we scarfed up our food and back to the shop we went to stock my spot with another large piece of furniture to replace the dresser that had sold.

So as far as a first day goes in my booth spot I think it went very well. My goal is to be able to rent a larger space in the future. I hope it continues this way because  I really  love what I am doing. No more high heels for this gal. I will take sawdust and paint any day!

Sorry for the absence, but I have been working on setting up a booth space. After much hard work, I now have  my tiny piece of pie to showcase some of my items, and when I say tiny I really do mean tiny, but what the heck it's a start and I am really excited about it too. Here are some of the pictures of my booth site.
