Baby Booth... Phase One

This weekend marks the beginning of a new adventure at our house... the opening of an antique/vintage/gift booth at KT Antiques.  Mimi (my mom) and I decided on Friday (you read that right) to lease a space... and move in on Sunday.  Yep, from conception to birth in two days... ARE WE CRAZY?  

Here is how the booth looked on Friday... right before the lovely gentleman who had been the proprietor arrived to start clearing out.


I like to call this style Early Clutter.  Not exactly the vibe we are going for... and not really the vibe of most of the rest of the store either, thank goodness.

Here is our little corner of the retail world on Saturday when Dear Daughter and I stopped by to take measurements and steal  glean some set-up ideas from our fellow vendors.

Does it surprise anyone that DD has inherited the junk vintage gene?  I am going to have to keep her out of here or my profits are TOAST.  But I digress...

I should also mention that despite her occasional shopping breaks, she was a GINORMOUS help on MOVE-IN DAY... as were Mimi, Big Daddy, Handsome Hubby, and Sweet Son.   Makes me feel like bustin' out a little "It's a Family Affair"... digressing again.

So here is our Baby Booth at the end of Day One... still so much to add and do, I have three boxes of goodies headed over today.  But we've got a good base, just needs to be fluffed but that's the fun part. 


I found a few blogs that offered tips and tricks to setting up this type of booth.  Tip Number One... put something in the middle to create an "aisle" for your customers to browse... CHECK.

Next I'll show you how I created our very own "vintage" price tags... stay tuned!

You are off to a great start! I agree the "early clutter" makes me cringe a bit.I just got done painting my booth from a former renter's dark terracotta red (eww) to pale creamy white..it looks so much bigger and better!
