I've been trying to catch up on work in my booths in between storytelling and travel. Both are doing very well considering how I've neglected them, but I stuffed them full in September, knowing this month was going to be busy.
Here's a look at a few changes we made recently at Marietta:
The amberina and ruby shelf has been a hit lately, with several pieces sold. I've thinned down my personal collection as I've concentrated more on collecting Blenko glass, so I've had a ready-made stockpile.
Weird fish, anyone? These aren't old, but they sure are cool. I bet they won't be in my booth for long.
I'm probably going to bring the breadbox home to be painted, since it's not selling as is.
Kitchen reds, how I love them. And if I had room, I'd probably keep all of these, but...
I found these snowshoes at a thrift store in Buffalo, NY. Pretty cool, aren't they?
Aluminum canisters are good sellers, but not so much the coppertone ones.
Lots of teapots--the brown ones in front are actually quite small, one-cuppers. I'd not seen any that size before. The brown one in the rear is very like one I saw being used in the movie "The Secret of Roan Inish", an Irish movie about a remote island.
Funny story about these shakers--I found one of them about 3 years ago in an auction lot. Last week I found its mate! What are the odds of that happening!
I have not seen violin bottles in these colors before--I've seen clear, cobalt and brown, but not green and amethyst.
I've done a lot of work at Ravenswood recently but forgot to bring my camera so I snapped a couple with my phone of the biggest pieces. I used this large cabinet to display linens for now, as an idea of how it can be used.
This sifter base would sure make a nice kitchen island, wouldn't it? Also great as a baking center or for crafts, since the porcelain top would clean up so easily.
I brought this large desk in a while back, and priced it pretty reasonably. But no takers yet. Sigh.
