A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about my flag garlands and promised I'd soon show you where they were going. I'm finally ready for the reveal!
We are now antiques dealers! We decided to take the plunge and try to rid ourselves of some of the excess baggage stored in our attic, basement, and cabinets. While I've been selling vintage goods on Etsy for almost ten months, this is our first brick-and-mortar booth (ok, pegboard and linoleum if you want to be exact). We're a little nervous about making back our booth fee, let alone any profit, but it is certainly an adventure. And a lot of work. It takes a long time to write out price stickers for books!
I used two of the four garlands in the booth, which we opened April 29. The booth still needs some tweaking and definitely more stuff in the display case, but I'm pretty happy with the way it looks so far. That said, I am very open to suggestions from all you sellers and shoppers out there! If you see any areas for improvement in arrangement or anything else, don't be shy about letting me know.
Our booth is on the second floor of On the Square Antique Mall, a three-level mall in Walworth, Wisconsin. The store used to be across the street in a strip mall where, many years ago, we bought the big hutch that is in our living room. The mall is now located in a former department store.
So this new adventure begins. I just hope it is a Sweet Posy Dream, not a Sweet Posy Nightmare!
