Setting up shop........


Eventually, Vanessa and I will be entering through this doorway beneath the lovely window, into our new booth at SuzAnna's Antiques.


Neutral barn board walls will be the backdrop for the precious treasures (those are not our items shown in the sale) we plan to bring you once we're open for business.


We actually shopped SuzAnna's ourselves on Sunday afternoon, picking through a ton of outdoor stuff in search of very inexpensive tables to use for display.  We bought this white farmhouse table..................


......................and, to add a little quirkiness, this table made from odds and ends re-purposed instead of being tossed on the heap! 


I'm anxious to get all the work completed at the cottage - hopefully this will happen by Friday - DH and are tired of the dust and hammering!  I can hardly wait to start setting up shop.  I love designing vignettes with unusual objects..........mixing antique, vintage and new pieces.   Vanessa and I have some great ideas for our space and I'll be sharing pictures soon!

  12. I just came across your blog and was hoping that shop you are opening was going to be in England. Do you know the Tonque in Cheek blog from France? (American in France) You two have alot in common. Best wishes on your exciting new adventures and if goes well, I hope you open another store in the UK!
