My luck started already!! I am so excited! As my mom and I were getting ready to drive to the shop, I saw a package in front of our door. I went to get it, opened it right away and I was so happy to see this Polish pottery cross sent by my dearest friend, Jane. Isn't that just too sweet and thoughtful? You probably know who Janie is, aka Blondie of Blondie's Journal! Thank you Jane, I will tie a ribbon through it and hang it in the shop but I want to be sure that nobody buys it because it is mine, it is my good luck charm!
Below are before pictures. The walls were an ugly green. The items on the shelves are not mine. The owner still had to empty the space.
I had it painted yellow. This is just one huge room with a smaller enclosed room in that corner and that corner is my shop, at least after I fix it up. The other vendors are just renting small spaces with imaginary walls so I am excited about my little private space.
I am putting a sign above that entrance saying "Christine's Corner" You will see it in the last picture. It's just hand made by me, nothing fancy. I really did not want to spend too much money on this shop yet. I just want to see how it goes first.
My landlady is not done emptying my space yet. Those stuff in front of the door are going and so is the desk inside and all the junk above it.
I thought I would be able to start stocking it today but the landlady said she is gettng the carpet cleaned tomorrow morning, so I might as well wait until it dries. I will go back tomorrow after lunch. I also asked the painter to paint the trims too and he is going to do that tonight.
I am going to sew a curtain for that door so I can replace the existing one.
Do you like the color of the wall? I am pretty happy with it cause I wanted the room to be bright and I think I accomplished that with this color choice.
Here are a few items that I am selling. Yep, I am going to try to sell that magnolia oil painting that I did myself., just to get a feel of what will sell. I have more that are already labeled, the car is packed also, but I still have so much to label. I need to go to our attic too and the walk in closet in the garage to see what else I can let go.
