Decorating my booth is always fun and although my husband is quite tolerant and appreciative of some shabby chic at home, I get to go overboard with the girlie-girl-vintage-Frenchy look with lots of whites in my booth, while my husband gets to junk and stock his own "Mantiques" booth which has some really cool stuff in it too. Take a look around!
My sweetie made the old-looking "Mantiques" and moustache signs out of salvaged wood from our attic renovation. He's so talented! I have such a great "partner in junk!"
Speaking of romance, let's move on to my "Romantiques" booth.
|Here is the rear wall of my booth back in May.|
|Here is the same view this summer|
Composition doll love.
My back wall was due for a little change so now a shabby console table is hanging as a display. This darling old composition doll is on the bottom shelf awaiting her new home.
Here is the top of the little console table (please excuse the shadows).
More vintage Huldah prints and girly-chic things.
|You can always count on a vintage scarf to add just the right flair!|
As for the beautiful jewelry mannequin bust, I just can't describe how gorgeous she really is. I had noticed her long before I became a vendor at the antiques mall when I used to shop there. She is absolutely amazing and I was lucky enough to buy her from another vendor just before a local historical museum snatched her up. The curator had just purchased six similar antique mannequin head/busts from her other antique store so I bought this one and the one shown below while I had the chance. I had been researching them online and they are getting harder to find and can be quite pricey so I didn't want to hesitate when she offered me two for the price of less than one on ebay.
More vintage luggage for a romantic honeymoon! Why buy new???
|Same view of the booth a couple of weeks ago. I sold the shabby green side table, garden planter screen and garden accessories.|
Repurposed drying rack to accessories display
My absolute favorite display in the booth is this 1950's wedding dress "pictured" in one of my antique chalk painted frames. I think I'll use this as my blog header for a while. Oooo I just realized I have an extra frame that would look awesome on the dress form in my living room. Yay! I'll mess with that right after I finish blogging...
Hope you have enjoyed the booth browsing. Stay cool!
