So far our experience has been wonderful. Its always nice to sell things before you even get them unpacked! The other vendors are knowledgeable and supportive and we absolutely love having a booth among such avid collectors. The "mall" is actually one large room stocked from wall to wall with anything and everything antiques, vintage, or primitive, and now I have added quite a bit of shabby chic and cottage style as well!
We have visited the Catlettsburg Antique Mall many times over the years, but it wasn't until we tried to set up our booth and get some work done that we realized how busy it actually can get. And its no wonder with all of the variety at the store. There really is something for everyone!

I really played up Valentine's Day since we are having a storewide sale next weekend. My husband decoupaged vintage sheet music on a little side table and I have to say I have had hard time parting with it. All of the furniture items are finds that we shabbied up ourselves.
I propped this antique photograph against a wonderful old heart shaped bottle. I imagine this handsome fellow was surely someone's valentine long ago (and those chocolate truffle candles smell good enough to eat).
We stacked this gorgeous side table on top of an antique dresser and crammed the shelves full of romantic-inspired nostalgia. If there was any doubt as to whether I had actually set up this display, the mini-pumpkin in the tarnished urn should be proof! I would use white pumpkins in my decorating all year if they would last.
I particularly love this painting of a young boy. It seems that paintings of females are always much easier to find. I also had to buy the groom doll at an estate sale as soon as I saw him. I am sure some lonley little bride doll will be happy when someone brings him home to her!

from my previous blogs. If I have used something
several times but it doesn't have any real sentimental value, I can let it go more easily for someone else to enjoy.
The robin's egg blue chest in the back was our favorite weekend project (see previous post for before pics).We'll be using a lot more of this color in our makeovers in the future.
The pearls on my little Valentine tree are actually individual necklaces that are for sale. I came up with the idea out of necessity since I didn't really have a place to put all of my pearl necklaces. I love it so much that I am not sure I can sell all of the necklaces now, since I am thinking of how they would look next year on my vintage Christmas tree...
Okay, so maybe letting go of my junk is going to take some getting used to!
Several of my handmade gifts are also in our booth, such as this little garden plaque, ballet slipper ornament, and the vintage valentine ornament tree below.
Have a great weekend!
