A lovely vintage wicker sofa with a coffee table I made out of a dresser top and the bottom of an iron bench.
Another view of the booth.
China Hutch and misc. treasures.
This enamel table went in the first 15 minutes.
Check out the little chairs in the right hand corner that flip into little tables...found these on the way to set up!
The columns I made and an old wood burning laundry stove...made to heat irons.
Still have a bit left
Looking a llittle bare at the end of the first day. Restocked for Sunday and did well too!

Since I showed you all the projects, I thought you might like to see how things turned out for me at the sale. I liked the way everything came togeher at the set up, but since it was such a success it looked a little bare by the end of the day...not that I am complaining!!! It was really nice to see everyone out having a good time and feeling a little more positive about the economy. I know we have a long way to go but there may be a light at the end of this long dark tunnel.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

georgiamoon writes: Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments. I was pretty happy with the way things went but that usually happens at this show. The crowds are amazing and the "Speckled Hens" do a fantastic job to make it fun and profitable for all. Antiquesuzy, I am sorry but I did sell the lightening rod, it was a good one. Jim, you my friend are in luck, I still have the hose reel, so if you want's yours. Email me and we can work something out. Thanks again everyone, Georgia Posted: 4:57 pm on May 11th

texasjunkermom writes: Beautiful views of the great stuff in your booth. I'd love to go shopping there, but would definitely spend too much!! Your booth is so full of so much it's hard to pick out any one thing--you really do have a gift for displaying things to the best advantage. Glad you did well. Posted: 11:34 am on May 11th

JunkArchitect writes: Wow! Georgiamoon…what great merchandising. You definitely know what you’re doing when it comes to putting a booth together. You have so many cool pieces especially the hose reel I see in the background. Do you still have it?
