Today we took more new items to the Marietta booth and did a major rearranging of one area there. I know, we did that Saturday too, but this was a different space (I have 3 in Marietta, all close together) and I did not like the way we had blocked the view into that space by the way we placed some furniture. To move it, of course, meant unloading shelves and cabinets--and finding somewhere to put all that stuff while we got things rearranged. The key to a successful booth is to keep it full. To keep it full means there is no empty space to set things down. We managed though, and I am happy with the result.
We also had four big steamboat framed prints to hang and a lot of old tools including a two-man crosscut saw, a hay knife, some singletrees, etc. To get these hung meant doing some more rearranging in another of our spaces. Whew. Lots of moving lifting, stretching, bending, more lifting, more stretching and finally, done.
And yet, not really. We want to move two light fixtures so they have better visibility, and I have this cool big chandelier thing (it has prisms but no lights--go figure) I want to hang. That's going to mean more ladder time for Larry and more extremely careful maneuvering with a very tall ladder, and undoubtedly moving some piece of furniture which will mean unloading it....and on it goes.
But for now, we're done. For this week, anyway. And tonight, I will be in bed by midnight, that's a promise.
