We made some changes at Marietta this month after selling one of the dressers we had there. That opened up space for the two American Chestnut church pews we've had in storage for a while. We had to stand them up against the wall because they're about 8 feet long. I love our space at this mall--actually, our 3 spaces--because we have so much versatility about how to display our wares.
I stacked crates to make more display space on top of the table. Making use of vertical space is critical to getting the most out of a booth.
This is an oops photo, but I wanted to show how the crates and table worked together. I'll have to take another when we get back up there.
This is in one of out other spots at Marietta. Not an ideal area because there is a big door to the left of the photo that we can't block, but the rent is low because of that and we make it work for us.
That's a quick tour of the Marietta booth. Best sellers here are vintage and retro kitchen items and other things from the mid-century up through the 70's, along with primitives and what I call "man" stuff---old tools, rusty stuff. Glassware does reasonably well; I have decided to keep little in the way of fabric items here because this is an old, old building and pretty dusty, which makes it difficult to keep them clean. Unusual items like the African mudcloths I had sell well here, probably due to Marietta being an arts college town.
Next I'll show some Ravenswood Riverbend Antique Mall photos. Things have been changing fast there as we've been having some good turnover and have moved in a lot of new things.
