Welcome to our booth at the Shoppes at River's Edge!
I made the linen hand towel from vintage linen and brown velvet ribbon. The English serving tray holds different letters to celebrate the season!
Well, the booth is in progress...I imagine it will always be! We just opened November first!
This driftwood Christmas tree would be perfect for the coast or even in a beach-themed house! I love it and it is hard to part with, but if it sells...great!
My business partner (that makes me sound so important!) Mary found this lovely pitcher and bowl! I think I might like to have it, but I am not here to shop!
I don't much polish anything and I like the look of the tarnished vintage silver...doesn't it look pretty with the cinnamon sticks tied with baker's twine? The details are so much fun!
Mary made the sheet music wreath from antique sheet music...the pages are over 100 years old from an old Diadem book. Her vintage lace pillow cases hang on either side of the window panes.
This is my version of the sheet music wreath! While this is nothing new in blog land, it is new in our little town! It is made with vintage Italian sheet music. I made the 'Noel' banner from drop cloth.
Some burlap pillows inspire us to 'Believe' and are backed with vintage red and white ticking.
Our dear friend made this beautiful burlap tree skirt for our booth! We have more coming...
We have been very busy making things, going to yard sales, getting a business license, pricing, doing inventory...wow...there is a lot that goes into a business!
While it is hard to 'start' a business in the middle of difficult economic times, we have prayed every step of the way! Mary found these shops and asked me, some time ago, about opening a booth. Initially, only a large space was available. We didn't think it was the right move, so we waited and this little space became available!
It has been so much fun, but I am apprehensive. My youngest daughter will start kindergarten in the fall and the plan is for me to return to pharmacy. If our tiny business does not succeed, I am content to return to pharmacy knowing that this little dream of mine was fulfilled, or at least attempted! I have had so much fun and am thankful for the opportunity! Of course, I am praying that it does well!
Thanks to all of you in blog land who have inspired and encouraged me! I would have never tried this without the sweet encouragement that you have given!
I will take more pictures, but my four year old was hanging twine on all the decorations as seen on the driftwood tree...difficult to snap pictures and manage her! She cut these and tied them and said she was 'helping' to decorate the shop!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am linking up to these great sites and blog parties!
