So meanwhile, I continue to add to the booths, putting in some Christmas items and rearranging a bit to freshen things up. I am relieved I must admit that right now I do not need to be painting furniture because I have no time for projects right now--storytelling takes front and center for a few more weeks as I get ready for the upcoming performances of "Here We Come A-Caroling!" with my sidekick Jeff Seager.
Here's a look at our booth at the Riverbend Antique Mall in Ravenswood, WV:
Larry painted this little red chair, one of his first attempts at distressing. I love it! The big red and green socks hive a Christmas-y look.
Red, green and crystal--the colors I associate with Christmas. The green cake pedestal stand is so pretty, perfect for holiday cakes and cookie displays.
The gas stove in the corner here is lit with tiny lights that can be operated with batteries or plugged into an AC outlet.
Wouldn't this little sled be perfect for a table centerpiece, loaded with cookies, veggie trays or presents?
A vintage Santa shows some "Appalachian repair"--he's been mounted on a board to keep him balanced!
I love this table lamp. It has a spot of something on one side of the shade that I did not try to remove, but who cares? Too pretty as it is.
Ignore that woman in the mirror!
I am surprised that I still have the Wexford punch bowl set. The price is certainly right.
Jars of thread, serving dishes, coin glass vase--variety is the spice of my booths.
Vintage Disney princess ornaments, Pyrex and vintage Christmas living comfortably on the dinette table.
Need china for your holiday table?
Lots of great stuff, all looking for a place in someone's home. I hope some of it finds its way out of the booth so that I can bring in more--because I already have more ready to go!
