I'm FINALLY Taking (More) Advantage Of The "Airspace" Above My Booth. Today I Found An Effective Way To Hang This Trio Of Danish Modern Dining Chairs From The Rafters. Status: More To Come!


See!  Necessity IS the mother of invention!  No more room on the floor of your booth?  Go up!  I'm way behind the curve on this though.  So many of the other vendors have already done this...and done it well.  Well, I'm playing catch up now.


In the mean time, I've been hawking everybody else's wares's high time I pimped my own! 

After getting the chairs hung from the rafters (with care) I decided to take a few minutes to shoot my

both as it sits today.  Since last I shared the space I think the Herman Miller sofa set moved on and

within just a couple of days the Brother Mel crucifix has found a new home as well.


Of course, as soon as something goes I'm right there ready to drop in a replacement!  Doing major

re-arrangements when something goes is lots of fun but time consuming and tiring.  It's good though,

it keeps a Mr. young!  It helps that the staff is eager to give me a hand hauling in heavy and awkward

items or hang a lamp...or three chairs!


The smalls haven't been going like the hot cakes that they are, but I think as Christmas approaches

many of them will find their way into beautifully wrapped boxes under seriously cool folks trees.  I

need to go back through my past sales and see what was picked up last year around this time.  Not

that you can really go by what Has's not so scientific as all that.


A few weeks ago Nick told me he was in The Shag on a particularly busy weekend day and while

poking around heard lots of clangs and crashes.  All that was going through my head was all of these

smalls scattered across the floor in a million little pieces.   Thankfully nothing like that

least to me.  So far so good, knock on wood.  I don't think I've had anything broken, stolen or tag

swapped as of yet.  These were some of my main fears with starting an antique mall booth and it

appears that I was fretting over nothing!
