Carriage House Update

This past May I joined a new business in town called the Carriage House and it has been great fun. I have covered my rent each month and had some left over!! Not bad for my first try at this booth. I have enjoyed sourcing new goodies each month to keep it fresh. Here are the Fall items that I am selling. We are getting ready to have our Grand Opening at the shop so I have stocked up the shelves in hopes for a big crowd.My button jewelry has sold well and all of the vintage bling has been a hit as well.I love these vintage hand towels with the rick rack. They go really well with the perfume bottle and trinket box. My SIL Judy always helps out with the booth and rearranging when we have a new collection. She found the shop for me and I am so glad she did!It always pays to try and spread your wings a little. You never know what you are going to learn and who you are going to meet. Besides making a few bucks and having a good time, I have been lucky enough to meet a great lady and fellow vendor at the Carriage House. Her name is Sherry and she is a fellow blogger, crafter and lover of all things vintage! I can't believe we found each other. She lives right in my own town. Yeah! Sherry's blog is called Sherry's Rose Cottage. It is a lovely site. Please go see her blog and say hi. Sherry is such a southern sweetheart. We instantly clicked with each other. I am so glad to be able to call her my friend. We will have fun antiquing together.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Love,

Tammy

Hi Tammy, wish I lived close enough to visit your place at Carriage House. I used to have a place to and just loved fluffing it up all the time. It's great you met a fellow blogger who loves to antique with you. There is no one around here that loves "junking" like I do so I am usually off by myself. It would be so nice to have someone to go with. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend.

It sounds like your fall is off to a great start! Glad your business is doing well. Would love to do something like that myself but I haven't been able to take the leap yet! You're an inspiration.
