I became a vendor at Sweeten Creek Antiques on October 10th and have been working like a mad woman to keep my booth full ever since! I guess it’s a good problem to have, but I get it just the way I want it, and I gotta start all over again.
I spent a few hours down there this past Saturday and took the opportunity to take a few pictures of it since it was pretty much packed to the gills!
I’ve been concentrating on Smalls, since I can’t shoehorn another piece of furniture in my little 10 X 10 shop. My most recent find was a great handmade drop leaf dining table.
Here’s the Craig’slist ad
I was in love!
The Shaker style legs were already painted a darker gray, and I really loved the color so I left them as is. I did sand down and refinish the top.
I love how it came out!
So, I had been collecting some pretty china pieces for my booth and this little table was the perfect place to display them.
I found a set of eight of these china plates and they are in perfect condition.
The plates have a silver rim and a silver wreath in the center. It took unbelievable self control to not keep these.
This smaller tureen was a really lucky match to those plates.
Here’s a larger tureen that I also have in my booth.
You can add tureens to my list of problems.
And PILES of pillows!
These photos are exactly how my tiny little shop looked when I left it on Saturday morning. Apparently, that little drop leaf table didn’t last 24 hours.
Good problem to have.
