Ready, set.....display!

The floor is set and now it's time to display all the merchandise!! This is the really fun part. Oh, you should see all the boxes and boxes of treasures!! Here is a tiny sample of the goodies from Martha Kohley, Vintage Trifles. Sweet little moppets in peat pots with vintage posies on their heads, baby shoes with nests tucked sweetly inside, mixed media collage boxes and vintage white stacking benches. And this is just a tiny sampling!!

Oh, and about the wall I painted......well, let's just say that after the show it will get a redo. The space is so large that the color disappeared! Note to self: If the color looks great in the house, it needs more saturated color in the shop. (sigh) Oh well!! It's a good thing I love to paint!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
