Booth Update

It’s been awhile since I’ve shown pictures of my Stars booth.  Since I was just over there on Tuesday, I decided to take a few pictures so I could share what my space is looking like these days.


I just brought in that shabby dresser which resided in my house for a long time until I recently replaced it with another larger shabby dresser.

Got a call just yesterday saying that dresser sold. The day after I brought it in.  Wow!  The coolest thing (other than the fact that it sold so quickly) is that it was bought to be used as a prop in the movie “Gone” being made in Portland.  I need to do a little research to find out more about this movie.


I don’t know if I’ve ever shown this little cabinet before, but I love it.  I think it’s just adorable and wish I had a place for it. I was going to paint it, but I think it has a nice finish on it.


A couple weeks ago, I built this little hanging shelf to house all my vintage clothes for sale.  I had them hanging in several different spots in my booth and I thought it would look nice to have them all together in one spot. The only thing I had to buy for this project was the hanging brackets ($8.00 for the pair at the local re-builder store). I had the wood for the shelf, the dowel, the finials and even the lace already on hand.  I have to say, I was pretty proud of myself after completing this simple project and the best part?  I didn’t even measure the space where I wanted to put it.  Just got lucky.


Not sure if I’m loving this area.  Parts are okay, but I need to do something about those little shelves.  I guess I just got tired and put them there.  They are pretty cute and should be hung up.  Maybe on my next visit.


I like how this little area turned out.  Seeing these pictures is making me realize something though.  I need more smalls. 

The same day that I visited my booth, I also hit a few thrift stores in the area.  So glad I did as I found several vintage lamps.  One of the many things I love, collect and sell.


The one on the front, left was found in the bins. It has no electrical, but I love it’s size and shape. The far right lamp I found at Stars.  The one on the back, right I found at Goodwill and the other two at Value Village.  I think the cream metal with the glass is my favorite.  I have been selling quite a few vintage lamps lately, so I was very happy to find these.

I also found several vintage nighties which will be joining all the others that are quickly filling up the clothing rack that I’m planning on taking to Farm Chicks.  I apologize if I am talking too much about Farm Chicks these days, but that is where my mind is right now. I’m just so glad that I am motivated to work on projects.  I guess I work well under pressure. Hope your Thursday is a happy one!  I’ll be doing a little painting here at Project Central.

Your space looks so good! I love the cabinet with the natural wood. And you did a super job with the clothes rack. I saw many things there could come home with me.

How fun that the dresser will be a movie star! I don't get over to Stars very often but I can see I'm missing out and need to make a point to drive over more often!
