It’s Official…I Have A Booth!

I’m so giddy and excited that I just HAD to share!

Yup, I signed the papers last night and dropped off my first month’s rent, which is for April. The owner said I can move in whenever I want, giving me two extra weeks before my official contract starts. I think I am going to move in my first load of stuff on Sunday! YAY! THIS IS SO FREAKIN EXCITING!!! šŸ™‚

I decided on a place called The Carriage Place in Brockport, NY. The owner and other vendors have been SO nice and I my gut tells me this is where my first booth should be. It’s a 6600 square foot craft/antique co-op with about 40 booths. There seems to be more primitives/antiques than there are crafts, but I think that will mean my booth will stand out (I hope!). I have a nice mix of both antiques, folk art, and crafts, and I think it’s gonna fit right in!!!

Here’s the booth as it stands right now…just waiting to be filled up with my goodies!

It’s got that ladder hanging from the ceiling which I can already see inter-twined with grapevines and twinkly lights! I’d like to paint the booth a taupe/brown color as well; I’m not a huge fan of the cream walls….they’re a little too plain for me.

I will keep ya’ll posted and take some more pictures this weekend. The ideas are flowing and I can’t wait to get started. This is the next big step in my craft business and I can’t wait to see what happens!!! šŸ™‚

Oh yeah, by the way, HAPPY ST. PATTIE’S DAY! To all my Irish friends and family…CHEERS! šŸ™‚
