Phew...What A Day! I (Of Course) Didn't Get Up Until The Crack Of Noon, But Have Been Out Of The House Pretty Much Ever Since! This Antique Mall Stuff Is Lot's Of Work! Status: Keeping It Real.
Once out of the house this afternoon we made hay while the making was good. We dropped by The Green Shag Market to drop off some information (propaganda?) concerning the Mr. Modtomic Holiday Gift Registry in the booth. While there I wanted to check on Jeff's booth progress. "Progress" being the key word!
But first, check it out! I'm making a little progress of my own! I found a nice chrome, brass and
smoke glass shelf on craigslist this afternoon and went right out a snapped it up. I think it's perfect
for my new medium sized space at the Creve Coeur Antique Mall.
As you can see, I managed to get a couple of the large items from the shop into the new booth space
today. That is the entire impetus for renting this space after all. I was pleasantly surprised by how
much it looks like I'll be able to fit in here eventually. Hopefully I'll have the wear with all to get
more in here tomorrow. Hey, c'mon...it done got COLD here in St. Lou.
Meanwhile, back at The Shag...Jeff ain't been sitting on his laurels. He took Mr. Modtomic's advice
and built a high shelf to display chairs, lamps and what-not. He's also started bringing in the life
blood of an antique mall booth - smalls. Not sure how I feel about the way he's tagging up his items.
What do you think about the tags? I prefer using tie on tags...but then, if you've ever seen my Home
Made tags you'll probably take my critique of Anybody's tags with a grain of salt!
So it looks like Jeff is about a half a step ahead of me at the moment. I'm just happy as a clam that he
(and all the vintage modern vendors) are in The Shag with me! I think The Green Shag Market really
gives Treasure Aisle (or any of the other St. Louis erea antique malls!) a good run for their money
these days for any buyer looking for Danish Modern, Eames Era, Mid Century Modern or Retro
items. Eventually, I'm hoping to bring the Creve Coeur Antique Mall up to that standard as well!
