Filling up the space

One of the hazards of having booth spaces and a shop , is that when you commit to hit the road and do a show , you tend to half to hoard up some stuff so you'll have awesome things to sell there too.
I recently expanded my booth space in the Sleepy Poet in March.
Since I was in "FULL ON HOARD" mode for Lucketts, the booth space
never really got all the goods it should.
Wellllll, let me just say that
THE SPACE IS PACKED LIKE CRAZY NOW!

I've kinda been like a crazed junk lady filling it up.
Workin on projects....
Actually getting them done...loaded...priced and displayed....
(sometimes all in the same day!!)
Who cares if I have paint in my hair while I'm trying to restock!
Lord knows there's probably more on my arms that I missed when I tried to wash it all off!

It feels great to get caught up on filling up the space.

All of these photos were taken last week and a bunch of the stuff you see here is gone already...

But TRUST ME.....there's more where that came from!!!!
My husband still continues to dream of the day when we can actually park the car
in the garage.
He even brings it up once in awhile like there is a glimmer of hope or something.
Silly Husband....Garage is for JUNK!

One of my favorite pieces is the tall , long aqua table that we covered with antique chippy ceiling tin!
It's a great height for a work table or buffet.
I'll be sad to see this one go. If I only had a bigger house.
HEY...here's a thought...a bigger house means a bigger garage .....sooooo
if we had a three car garage~ TWO could be for junk and ONE for the car!
I'll have to use that one next time!

Old industrial work bench,,,just waiting patiently for someone to take it home and use is as an island!
(Yep...it's even on wheels.)
I made the wire cloche (and didn't cut myself once!) It comes with the old architectural column base too!

This french script bookcase is kind of in limbo. I want to keep it~ I really do have a place it could go, but that would mean getting rid of the piece I have there now.....which I love too.
Decisions Decisions. I figured if someone bought it then that would make up my mind for me!
I have since added more pieces and am loving the additional space!
I will be taking a ROAD TRIP to OHIO this weekend and hope to find some PRIMO JUNK to bring home to help fill
in all my spaces!
See ya when I get back!
P.S. YES.....THE SHOP IS STILL OPEN WHILE I'M GONE! Stop by to see Kim or Mr.OTM!

Ok, two things....First, I love the saying "Silly husband, garage is for junk" and I need one of those checker signs and when someone is bothering me(whether it's my husband, kids or just a random PMSing woman, I'll just hold it up in their face and walk away...hahaha. I crack my self up...can you tell I'm a little overloaded lately...LOL.

Great junk as always Beth and have fun on your road trip:-)

Beth--I'll be taking the usual sojourn to PA to stock up in a couple of weeks--looking forward to selling at your July and August shows! I'm also going to the Sleepy Poet net week to beg for a space. I'm going to use your name as a reference, if that's okay.
