Yesterday, I received a call saying my booth was empty if I wanted to set up now rather than wait until July 1st. The first of the month is a busy time, so this worked out well for me. I had been gathering and pricing things getting ready, but once the call came in, I put it in high gear and got everything organized.
So, here it is - only with what I managed to hunt, gather and price by today. As you can see - there is still LOTS of room for little stuff on the shelves, things hanging on the pegboard, things hanging on the hooks on the ceiling, etc. I bought the two big shelves for the booth and found the small skinny one on the right for $4.00 last weekend. I already had the shelf on the left at home. I need to find some TALL skinny shelves that will utilize the upper area more. It will take me a while to tweak it and give it my personality. You know, doiley's under the pottery, old baskets in the rafters, fun vintage kitsch as far as the eye can see... I'm really thinking ahead to the holidays - leaves on the rafters, a Christmas tree in the corner, Shiny Brite encrusted wreaths, lots of fun stuff.
Everyone names their booth or their little shop. I wanted a sign that was me, so I put on my thinking cap. I picked up a very nice (and probably pretty expensive) frame out of a FREE pile last weekend. I spray painted it white and added some aqua glittery paper to it.
Then I broke out the old PROBE cards and spelled out monkeybox.
I like it. It's me. Soon the booth will be me too.
If the Good Lord's Wilin' and the creeks don't rise.
I don't know why I said that.
It just popped into my head.
Do you ever have that happen?
Yea, me too.
