So after loading the van Thursday night until midnight, then finishing up a few projects like the remade sign above, it was off to bed around one, then up again at 5:00 AM ...pardon my yawn. This was my first time to have my own booth at an antique show. In the past I have shared with my former partner, Bruce ... (Yes, another dealer asked us during set up today if it was just a trial separation ... LOL)
But since I missed the last Acorn Sale, as my family was out of town, and Bruce had record sales, I guess he thought it was time to tip the fledgling out of the nest .... ouch .... bump .....
So this is my set up for the Acorn Antique Sale in Ogden at the Weber County Fairgrounds which is going on ... TODAY!! To the left is my collection of white pitchers, since my family room is going a different direction.
Above is a massing of my French Signage, which I have made over the last year. I have a slow and steady sales flow through Treasures Antique Mall, but bringing some of them along to the Antique show should boost my sales.
To the right is the cool new wire shelf that I found at the last flea.o.logy. Definitely my favorite of the sale.
Above is a shot of the whole booth. It took me from 7:30 A.M. until after 4:00 P.M. for set up. OK there was some wandering around and saying hi to old antique dealer friends mixed in.
The yoyo throw to the left is one of my favorite pieces for this show. It is its first time 'out'...
Above are my two latest additions to my French signage group. Of course the designs for both were found on Graphics Fairy.
Then to the left is my one moment of inspiration during set up. I had the fun round deco bird cage, sans a bottom and decided to use it as a cloche for the small cake with bride and groom.
... and last of all is a teaser of my steampunk friend Marci's booth. She was not quite done setting up when I left, but I loved these little picture holders. I will be doing a future blog post about just her booth. She is so amazing. Thanks for coming along and hope to see you at the show today!
