We worked and laughed until 11:30 p.m. in the shop the first night…alone…with lots of really old stuff! Occasionally, we noticed a slight rustling toward the front of the building. It was a bit unsettling until we figured out that the huge fan at the back of the store was causing a flag hanging in another booth to whip around some…at least that’s what we wanted to believe!!!!
I have a lot of photographs of the shop but for today I am sharing a few of our booth in it’s early stages. I will post the other booths in a few days.
The old plaster/brick walls were left in their original condition
with the exception of some sheetrock added at the rear
The building is long and narrow with an aisle down the center – booths on each side
Pendant lights and ceiling fans run down the center of the building
Our main facing wall has incredible texture
A mix of our ‘pretties’ sit atop the old painted mantel
I painted these display cloches in ASCP
Duck Egg – Old White – Antoinette
Jan’s seashell sconce is lovely
More ASCP updated this large hurricane container
Vintage bench and tray freshened up with ASCP
This was my first Union Jack piece…it wasn’t as easy as I thought!!!
I shared this cute baby bed with you in an earlier post
Chicken wire attached to the back makes it perfect for
hanging baby items and some of sisters
incredible handmade pillowcases
We both adore vintage baby dresses
Not positive about these vintage cuties
We decided they must be doll hats
Incredibly adorable, they are!!
Close up of Jan’s beautiful pillowcases
Look at the detailed hand stitching
these sold the first day!
I decided to sell my vintage wicker mannequin
She is wearing antique knickers around her shoulders
I couldn’t let her be nekky above the waist!!!
I decorated this cloche with a vintage half doll pin cushion
and a vintage porcelain puppy
Some BCH Originals
I still have a lot of washed burlap
I made several long runners and a few pillows
This was fun to make
Love my ruffler attachment!!!!
Ending with a little bling today.
