Up, up and away...............

We took a little time to celebrate the opening of the new addition at SuzAnna's Antiques yesterday and pastry, camaraderie and laughs as Vanessa and I added more items to our booth. All the other booths surrounding us are now filled with awesome things, and yes I did a little shopping of my own, hard not to!

Hammered nails and hung things, stacked and rearranged, trying to make everything visible without looking cluttered.

The art of display will be learned as we go.............

................and we'll be ready with new finds to bring in when these treasures are given new homes. 

Since this pic was taken, my antique chair with velvet cushion, and Vanessa's very pretty metal with crystals balloon, perfect for a little girl's room, have been hung from the ceiling..............we can utilize every square inch of space within our booth, up, down and sideways!

Even DH got involved yesterday, hauling heavier items into the booth.......and he thought our space was looking really nice.

...............and so our old metal and tarnished silver, linens, white and transfer ware china, books and jewelery, along with a mix of art, mirrors and decorative pretties, await new homes.  Hope YOU can stop by SuzAnna's day day soon and enjoy our booth and all the others now loaded with treasure.............

...........and yes, I do have one of the French sconces for sale too ~ an amazingly beautiful piece.  With the weather due to start cooling this coming weekend, at long last, it will be a great time to go treasure hunting in North Carolina.

  9. Lovely! I can definitely see things that would draw me in.

  10. So beautiful dear! I apologize one more time for not being my usual self due to this back pain. I'm feeling a ot better today compared to the past few days and I'm really taking it slowly! I found a couple of things I would like to bring in to the shop, perhaps I'll come by tomorrow. Love, Vanessa

  11. Can you post an address for the shop? If I get the chance to travel through there with my husband, I would love to stop in. Carla

  12. Lovely shop, much luck with it! Love those mirrored sconces, I wish I could find a pair like those here!

  13. Your shop just keeps more and more interesting. I love your style and choices of items. Happy shopkeeping...

  14. Miss Mary and Vanessa, what a wonderful job you did! I ran over there today with Alyssa, we had so much fun! Gosh, I wanted to sit and stay there :). I did buy your sweet litte "tea" canister-I'm so excited. You two are so gifted in so many ways. So glad you've "opened shop". hugs, Mary Ann

  15. Bravo! Bravo! Mary, I definitely see touches of Mary and Vanessa, and I see many things I love.

    You already have a flair when it comes to the art of display. I loved seeing all of your pretties.

    Best of luck with your venture.

  16. Hi Mary
    Congratulations on your new adventure! The shop looks wonderful. I know you will have fun and I hope you do well with it.
    Can't wait to see you again at Penny's in a few weeks.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  17. Hi Mary,
    Your new shop looks fabulous. Wish I could shop it! I love how you have staged and merchandised your treasures. Such eye candy! Good luck!

  18. I hope your new venture is a success, your booth looks very appealing. If I lived nearer I'd be buying that pretty Country Diary plate. I've loved The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady ever since it was first published.

  19. Mary, the two of you have done a fantastic job!! So many things to choose from, I know I will have fun when I finally make it there!!
    Take Care!
