My mom rented booth space in an antique/resale store and wanted my help in setting it up.
We worked all day yesterday, hauling in furniture and boxes and bags of vintage 
and household items. We arranged - and did plenty of rearranging - 
and here's what we came up with for starters.

Some of the things are mine, most of which I originally purchased
from Goodwill. Hope they sell! It'd be nice to make a little bit of money.

The picture of the baby is VERY old.
We were helping an elderly woman from church pack her things for moving
a couple of weeks ago. She said we could take whatever we wanted.
She said her mother made this baby picture from real baby hair and
a baby blanket - that this was a popular thing to do way back when.

An assortment of designer purses (all authentic), a "nursing chair",
dolls, vintage bedding and sewing box, and even a Raggedy Ann and Andy quilt.

I arranged everything green on this stand.
I like the way it turned out - and it looks much prettier in person.

Teapots, teacups, plates, and a few other pretties...

 If you're in the area, come and visit booth #39 at
The Resale Connection in Lisle, Illinois!

  5. I love your shop space. I have been wanting to do that for a long time now, there just are no shops renting space in your area. You have some beautiful things collected and displayed and I'll bet you'll do very well.
    Have a great day and best wishes on your booth :)
