Here is my booth and the display case I decorated for my jewelry. When I saw this, I had to have it. It has two glass shelves in it for displaying items. We added the bow and bird to the top and placed a flower in the bottom to pretty it up.I have a mix of both vintage pieces and some button jewelry I have made. Here are some new pieces I added today.
These are Czech glass button earrings with vintage turquoise Japanese glass twists.
These are blue glass Czech buttons with glass bead drops. Since opening, I have sold 2 pieces of jewelry and have covered half of my rent so far. It is a start. I have added a few more things to the booth since I took the last picture. I hit an estate sale and flea market this weekend and added a few finds this week. My BFF, Lee also sent me a box full of things to put up in my booth to help with the cause. She rocks!
To make my things stand out and to have a professional look, Amada at Digital Paperie made these custom ordered tags to use in my booth. They came out so pretty.
Here are some more pictures of the shop and what some of the other vendors are selling.
Each vendor is required to work one day a month at the shop. Today, I worked there for the first time and it was fun. The shop is too new to know if it is going to fly, but I am having fun. It is all a learning experience and a branch out. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Until then, wish me luck!
