We've rented a flea market booth!

What were we thinking? I was ready to donate all the rest of the stuff in the basement. As a matter of fact the DAV truck was coming to our street in a few weeks! But Mickey said HE was just going to rent a booth and put the stuff in it!
It was quite a wreck when we rented it. The back wall was brick but painted yellow. The floor is concrete, but painted hunter green and sponge painted with white blobs. So we went to work.
We hung burlap on the back walls and white fabric on the sides (to cover the dusty chicken wire!) Then painted the floor a clean white and I stamped these fleur-de-lis on it! Yesterday I filled it up with HALLOWEEN decorations and dress-up supplies!

Wednesday~Noon...

The painted floor



Hung some shutters


And Voila! Yesterday at about 2:30!




Wish us luck. We chose the STD flea market that's close to the MSU campus~ Hopefully the kids will find some costumes for Halloween!

Peace,
Sheri

Sheri, I love what you've done with this booth!
And I like Mickey's idea. This way, while you clean out and de-clutter, you'll also be making some money out of it. How wonderful. And it sounds like fun. Good luck to both of you with this.

Hi Sheri, I'm so glad you found me, and joined in for the give-away. Oh, I just love your blog name (I'm a "sheepaholic") and it looks like your booth at STD is a real winner. I haven't been there for a few weeks, but I always find great stuff there! OK, I'm going to have to go back thru your blog. Thanks again for stopping by. and Yes!!! I spent way too much moolah too!
