Owl Really: 8 Monthiversary!

Image Map

My booth had very humble beginnings in the strangest-shaped booth of the Tennessee Antique Mall. After doing OK in it for a few months (June-Aug), I moved to the booth next door that has a more traditional booth shape. It has been such a fun 8 months - it really has flown! It doesn't feel like I've been in business that long.

I'm not getting rich from the booth - in all honesty, I'm breaking even. I love being able to shop and thrift and bring home awesome finds but not clutter my house with them. And I love providing a service for people - for making unique items available so they can decorate their house. I love connecting people with items.

If you are reading because you've been by my booth, I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment or email me at and say hello and let me know what you bought (if anything) or just say hello! Truthfully I would love to know if my in-booth marketing is bringing people to the blog and I would love to hear feedback from people who have visited.

Thank you for your support, it means the world to me!

  1. If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I am FOR SURE finding your booth!

  2. Congratulations on eight months! Your booth is a ray of sunshine. I'm going to try and stop by there by there this week.

  3. Jamie--it has flown by! What an improvement! I hope that I get to stop by your booth when I'm there later this month! so happy for you!

  4. Congrats Jamie! I was in last week and bought some cards. I was drawn to the sweet ironing board but had to restrain myself :) I'll visit again soon. Elaine

  5. Wow! Looks amazing! It's looking much better than our booth! Great Job Jamie!

  6. your booth is so cute. i thought that the first time i saw it at the mall (two girls who know you were in there talking about how awesome you are) and i wonder if i missed some blog marketing in there. because i totally would have been excited to check out a blog of someone at the mall! i have been thinking about starting to resell in SOME way because i have SO MUCH STUFF and i don't really have a reason to go looking for pretty vintage anymore.

  7. I visited your booth and took one of your adorable cards. I have had it for a while and just sat down to peek at your blog. So I guess that means it is working!
