We finished the shop walls today!

Finally! It took longer than I thought it would and got darker than I had envisioned but it sure does have that "Old World" look to it. The quote above the door says: Home Is Where The Heart Is. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
My friend Marilyn was such a huge help! I never would have finished it today if it wasn't for her. Thanks so much Marilyn! Marilyn and I had such a great day today! Yard Saleing till noon and then working on the walls the rest of the day.

See the little rusty wagon that "appeared" in the back room? It was just what I was looking for and will be getting a make-over tomorrow and be sitting just outside the door for our opening.


A little more progress on the walls of the shop.....

These pictures were taken Sunday. Since then I've added a little more script to the walls and painted the trim. Just a few more flourishes to go before I stain. The Antique/ Craft Mall manager says lots of customers are intrigued with the walls...................Lets hope they are intrigued with the items we fill it with enough to buy them!

This is the front of the shop. Isn't it cute?


My Shop Progress.....................

The walls are coming along. I've removed the wallpaper border and painted. Today I started "coloring on the walls" I saw this idea on Tiina's Blog and she was so kind to give me the step-by-step tutorial. Thanks so much Tiina! I love it!

New Booth ~ Help me decide................

I'm opening a booth at The Street of Shops in Lewisburg. They've got 2 empty spots for me to choose from. The first one is a double booth and also twice the monthly rent but it's also in the main area. The second one is smaller and in the back of the building in an out of the way area so I'm not sure how much traffic I'll get back there. Which one would you take?

Above is the double booth. Looking in from just inside the front door. The front of the booth is built like an old store. Hence the name "The Street of Shops"

Above is the double booth looking out onto the Market square.

And this is the smaller booth. It's roughly 8x14. It's in the back of the building and you have to walk through another booth to get there but the price is much more affordable. What to do..............What to do................
