Vanessa and I are like kids in a candy shop........playing with our doodads, moving things about, hammering more nails, sweeping up the floor, and making decisions. 'Fluff the booth' day this week. After last weekend's very busy Open House there was lots to do.........we thank the many people who came by, especially those who made a purchase.
We moved the right to the left knowing that items seen from another view sometimes look new and fresh. While I was out of town hobnobbing with the huge bunch of fabulous blogging friends, Vanessa was busy painting more chairs.
We brought in a few new things for the table knowing Holidays are looming closer, cooking, baking and serving loved ones will take up a lot of time.
A child's adorable wicker chair, a baby book, a print of children playing.
The Halloween pumpkins sold. The witch has gone somewhere new to scare the trick or treaters. The ravens are still perched with their not for sale stickers............but perhaps I'll sell them as next year we're certain to come up with something new!
All Autumn decor will be removed from dealers' booths by November 15, then it's time to add Christmas items. We need to get our thinking caps on and decide what to display. This shopkeeping life keeps one busy and there's not much time left to actually play in the candy shop after all!
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR is a fresh version of my former three year blog ACROSS THE POND which can still be accessed by clicking on the title above.
I'm a transplanted Brit enjoying life in North Carolina. 50 years journeying back and forth across the wide Atlantic Ocean have kept me busy.......and made my life very interesting! I'm still traveling often - look forward to sharing many new places during the next couple of years.
