The past few weeks have been a whirl-wind of activity and well honestly, I’m tired, but excited and happy for everything that’s happening.
Two weeks ago, I had my first public sale at my home, and while it wasn’t super successful, I met some really great ladies who pushed me right over the edge to put my work into an antique/consignment mall. So, I filled out the application for my favorite, Buy the Season just in the next town, and sent them some pictures of my work. I got an email the next day that they were very interested in having me join the store and had a space available for me. I met with them last Friday, picked my space and as of July 4, I’m open for business!
As a side note, I was completely flattered that the owner had been talking with the vendor rep last week and showed him some pics she had found on Craigslist and said wouldn’t it be great if we could get her in here? He recognized the items from the email I had sent him, and told her I was coming in on Friday. Doesn’t every girl need a little validation that her work is desirable? It felt really good and made me proud of all the work I have been doing lately to get this going.
So, anyway…Here’s a picture of what my space looked like before I moved in.
Well, this is kinda before. Those are my shelves I picked up at a yard sale this weekend for $5.
And, here it is after bringing some things in.
Since this picture, I’ve brought in a few more things. It seemed like I had so much more at home, but it looks a little bare, especially in the accessories department. I’ve got to get busy on some little projects. And, I’m definitely going to have to paint that pinky looking fence.
I’m excited, and of course a little nervous, about how this will work out. The hardest part about this is pricing stuff. Anybody have any advice on this?
So, if you are in the area, come out to see my space! Buy the Season is located at 1529 Apperson Drive, Salem, Virginia.
