More Booth Pictures

I recently gave my second booth a Valentine makeover. Of course in typical Jackie fashion I'm late getting my pictures posted --but here they are.

This is the sweetest little collapsable sewing chest. It's one of the things that I would be tempted to keep for myself.

I'm going to go out on a limb here . . . I think peach is about to make a comeback. I'm hoping the population of Mobile agrees with me and buys all the peach items that I've grouped together! (Ha Ha)

It turns out that my husband is quite the cabinet maker! He repurposed two louvered doors and made this gorgeous corner shelf. It had holes where the door knobs used to be so I had the idea to check the knobs and miscellania at Hobby Lobby to see if anything would work. Look at how cute it turned out!

Cute doggie pillow and bookends:

Aren't these the cutest chalk poodles? Did you have these in your bathroom when you were growing up?

Several items from this shelf have already sold. The mirror and the Syracuse lace platter are gone. Yay!

More peach. I found the mannequin head in the toy section at the Goodwill. Yeah, I'm pretty sure some child was freaked out to find a random head just lying in the toys.

Georgeous ceramic bust. And I do mean BUST! Sister could use a little more lace in certain areas! Another thing I would like to keep . . .

I hope you enjoyed the virtual toor of my booth. I am itching for yard sales to really start up. Our Azaleas are blooming so it shouldn't be long now!

Thanks to Eddie over at Eddie-Torial Comments for the post-gallbladder shout out! Eddie has been writing some excellent posts about reselling in flea malls and antique stores. You should go and check out his blog.

Until next time . . .

Happy Junking!

Out of Commission

This was my view on December 26, 2011. I was admitted to the hospital and scheduled for gallbladder surgery on the next day. I spent most of the week after Christmas in the hospital. I'm almost three weeks post-op and so far have been doing well. I won't go into how I had been having these attacks for years and was repeatedly told it wasn't my gallbladder--even as recent as a month ago when I had to go to the emergency room for the same symptoms. My surgeon told me that the pathology report showed that I my gallbladder had gangrenous changes. Yuck! Sorry if this is TMI -- so let me move on !

Since I was recuperating from surgery I could not work on my booths after Christmas. I had Christmas items in both booths until this past weekend. But I'm happy to report that both booths have been redone and are fully stocked. That is such a good feeling. Sales wise I had a good month at both malls but one was incredible! I love Christmas time!

Below are some pictures of my space at Queen's Attic.

I did my space at Cotton City yesterday. I will be sharing those pictures soon!
