Follow my highs and lows of a small business, working with junk, repurposing, and creating original treasures! Im a Visual Merchandiser, Interior Designer, Junk Artist, Collector, and Daydreamer! My studio is filled with many old and new, shabby and chic, antique and vintage, one-of-a-kind items.... My life, and my home are much the same, 'cluttered and fabulous'! Come and Browse....
The stress melted away the minute I setup, opened the gate, and my first 'old faithful' customers(neighbours) came through!
I was in my element, and smiled the rest of the day!
Many items sold which was quite humbling to me, but my highlight would have to be the chatting, laughing, and reunion of some old neighbours, old and new friends, and family, who came together to support me,oh, and spend some money!!
Judy arrived later in the morning with her cheeses and chocolates, and people swarmed!It was a day of success, and I look forward to next month's sale with more enthusiasm, more stock, and of course, more stress( it keeps me going)!
A big thankyou goes out to all involved, and I hope you had a good day, and look forward to seeing you here again.
Mum was a trooper and was put on lunch and tea duties, and Sue and Jen(and Wayne) helped out with food and packing up, and Judy brought in the customers!
Now, I have my work cut out for me, a couple of big pieces were sold, including the bookcase I showed you, and a corner cupboard.They are getting picked up next week, so I have to empty those, and alot of the new things I made sold....
So, back to the grind-stone,
with a smile!!
A rare photo of me, which you will probably never see again, I like to be on the other side of the camera!
This was one of two chalkboards I finished the night before, the other sold!
