Things have been selling so fast at Marietta this month I don't have time to post photos before I have to go back and add new stuff. It's been a very good month so far, and a sale or two tomorrow will make this our best month ever at the location.
Today we had work to do. The two chestnut church pews and the work station we took in a couple weeks ago all sold, along with some chairs and other odds and ends. There were a lot of holes to fill, which is good in this business. Here's what we did today:
This photo is from last weekend. The wrought iron chairs (there were two, one was around the corner) and the jadeite bowl sold this past week.
The green porcelain top table moved across the booth to where the little dresser had been. I really like it here. I'd love it to sell, after all the work it took to restore it, but it makes a great display piece for kitchenware.
The work station we restored was in this space in our new space in the mall. It sold on Saturday so we brought in this small desk/dressing table to replace it. I call this the "man booth." It holds lots of rusty stuff, lunch buckets, coal items, and old tools.
A corner of the man booth. We got the mower yesterday at an auction. People like these for yard ornaments.
One last picture--we found the small telephone table last week. It needed a good scrubbing but nothing else. The three-legged chair is from the estate we bought last year. It's actually a fairly rare piece.
That's a quick tour of highlights of the changes we made at the four space we have in this mall. It was a full day's work to load everything, move all the things that needed to be moved, and then get it all arranged again. It's really an ongoing process; as things sell, we have to add more and rearrange, over and over. It is work, but it sure is fun.
