Just a few things that I had to get painted right before it started to pour. I used vintage Gucci wallpaper that I picked up back East for this wall.
Same area ...different view
Cant have a sale without a white section..right Gioni?
More stuff.
I bought this goreous iron piece from a good friend and it is super heavy but really cool. Love the reddish color.
Great overstuffed chairs that make for a comfy entry to the shop.
I actually went out and cut down the trees on a friends ranch. I am NOT kidding, it was easier to cut them down than to drag them through the store. Never wear shorts while doing this. Im just sayin.
This section is right on target! I used vintage Army Rifle targets to cover the wall and they look like Dominoes from a distance. With one of Jennys Foundry Mold mirrors it hits the spot!
Another wall treatment?...oh my! I used corregated cardboard for this soothing background. Love the texture and color.
Heres my trees all decked out for Valentines day.
We hung fabic hearts hand-made by Melissa, some long crystals for a little sparkle and what I called Key-to-my-heart necklaces on the trees, which may become a permanant fixture here in the shop.

Getting ready for this sale was a huge challenge with the fierce weather we have been having here in California. I know...I've got it easier than most around the country but no matter where you live it's hard to paint in the rain. We got it all together just in time to find out that the roof leaks after about 4 days of straight rain...and it's still leaking. Luckily it was confined mostly to one room..Jenny's room (Sorry 'bout that) So we moved out as much as we could, tarped the rest, and on with the show.

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

MossyLady writes: Thank you, Georgia for sharing your tremendous talents. Those targets used as wall paper were just amazing. I get so many ideas from you and all the other "junk stars" on this site. Thanks so much, and I hope all your sales are sell-outs! Posted: 8:24 am on January 31st
writes: Yes, it was a bit of a challenge but we persevered and had a great time. It was interesting mixing up our things too - I think people seeing them merchandised differently was a big plus as many of the items we'd had for a while sold the first day!

I must say my favorite part of the shop was the bushes with Melissa's hearts and Geo's vintage keys. So cute!

JunkArchitect writes: Georgia, you really do have an incredible shop. I’m sure everyone on JMS would go absolutely NUTS poking around during one of your sales…or anytime for that matter. If anyone is within 1,000 miles of the shop they should stop by and check it out. I’m 3,000 miles away so I won’t be able to before this sale ends.
I have incorporated lots of great things from Georgia Moon into some of my favorite JMS post…so THANKS! And, the store looks amazing.
