The Competition Is Getting Good Down At The Shag! Yup, There's A New Vendor In The Joint And I'm Pretty Happy About It. Everybody Welcome M For Modern To Booth 27 Green Shag Market. Status: Open For Business.
After I drop anything off in the booth at The Shag I tend to, if I have the time, mosey about the antique mall and check out the other vendors wares. Saturday I was surprised to find a new vendor in booth 27 with a style right up our alley.
Look at that, just a couple of days in and already they've figured out that using the space above the
booth is a good idea! Beyond that, they've got great wares and an excellent sense of style. I bet that
if you stop by tomorrow, at least a few of the items I took pictures of Saturday will be gone. I think
that Michele will be in here a lot bringing in new stock.
As you can see, they've got just about the right mix of smalls and furnishings for an 8 x 6 foot booth.
Figuring this out and maintaining that balance is always a challenge, no matter how much space you
have. It's like owning a boat. You get TwoFoot-Itus...if you have a 13 foot boat you'll want a 15
footer, get that 15 footer and you just can't live without that 17 foot. I'm already looking for more
As you can see, M for Modern / Michele is no part-timer, selling on eBay, etsy and now at The Green
Shag Market. They've even got business card made up! This has been a matter of some contention
between many of my support system (The Girlfriend, Mom-tomic, staff at The Shag) and myself.
I'm of the opinion that business cards are quaint...a single page vanity press relic from the past, while
everybody else seems to think that having these available in the booth and to hand out would be
I just don't see it. I don't have any of the business cards I've ever been handed (well, maybe a few
stuffed in my wallet, but I don't even know what they'd be without looking) and I can't imagine why
anyone would keep one of mine. I might jot down the word "Modtomic" for them to look up later in
order for them to find the blog, but that's about it. What do you think?
