Booth Updates: August 2012

Last week, I gave you a peek into my booth mid-reorganizing. It was a total disaster! I stopped back by to take some better "after" photos and discovered that my big yellow/orange armchair sold! I was so happy and thankful - it felt like such a beast sitting in the corner, taking up too much room. I was beginning to question if it would ever sell and even thought about bringing it home and trying to sell it on Craigslist!


I still have those teal canisters - come and get them! I priced them on the higher end at first because they are SO amazing but they haven't moved, so I brought the price down a little. I think it's about $28 now, but I can't remember. I will hold onto them at that price for awhile longer - they are so, so cute. I try to keep my prices pretty low but when I find a real gem, I try to price accordingly.

I tried to centralize the children's items and also the "wearables" - everything from kids' clothes to scarves and neckties to dresses and aprons. I love, love, love the blouse below. I think it would be SUCH a cute fall outfit with a highwaisted pencil skirt or some skinny jeans.

Still have the horse cardigan, too. I can't believe someone hasn't scooped it up yet. Maybe it will find a new home this fall.

I have been trying to highlight crewel work in my booth after the Design*Sponge feature on crewel! I sold a giant piece last week, so I think it's working. :)

I also brought in these really cute blue, industrial/schoolhouse children's chairs. They would look so good in a nursery or child's room! I set the pink royal typewriter atop them - it was a bit hidden previously.

And you can always find great vintage luggage and travel bags in my booth! This is my current selection of shoulder bags. I'm kind of obsessed with bags like these.

  1. What size is that horse cardigan? I LOVE it but it looks tiny! I'll buy it if it's the right size! :)

  2. I can't believe those canisters haven't sold!!! Do scarves sell well for you?

  3. it looks great! i need to go in and add stuff. i have gotten really scared to go in for some reason. i usually make travis go with me, but we haven't been off the same days lately. so silly!

  4. You have some great stuff! I can't believe those canisters haven't sold, either. They're so pretty!

  5. lol just as I was typing I can't believe those canisters haven't sold, I look up and see my friend Suzanne said the same thing! lol They are so cute, as is that sweater. I bet it goes this fall!

  6. Hi there from a new follower. I wish I could find a local antique booth to rent in my neck of the woods. No such luck in Northeast Philadelphia, it seems. I do love those travel bags. I have a few I use to store my vintage cameras and equipment. Durable stuff.

  7. I love your booth - such great variety, and it all goes together :-)

  8. The horse caridgan is for kiddos, unfortunately (or fortunately if someone out there has a stylish kiddo they want to outfit!). Scarves haven't sold that well but I never had them displayed very well before... I'm hoping hanging them up helps! I'm surprised there's not antique malls in NE Philadelphia! PA has been one of my favorite thrifting locations - I love the area around State College.
