Buy Vintage, Save the World

Hello! Just wanted to check in and show off my new space at the antique mall! My new space is located right next to my previous space but this one is about 3 times the size and just at the bottom of the stairs into the basement! My booth is the first space you come to at the bottom of the stairs so I am really trying to make it pop so it is eye catching and inviting. I want people to want to look through my items!

I moved 1/2 way in on Halloween and even sold a piece of furniture on Sunday so I am already almost 1/2 way to making rent for November. (Please God let this have been the right move for me!) I spent 3 hours at the shop first thing Monday morning moving in my furniture and rearranging so it looks fabulous!

Here are some photos of my space!

 Used my old spring from my crib when I was a baby as my new vintage linen display!

 Vintage Rocking Horse from the 50s that was a re-pop of a horse from the 1800s, a great piece!

 Found this chalkboard design on Pintrest, I'm hoping it will help people choose to buy instead of just browse!

 I even added a Christmas Corner! Who doesn't love vintage Christmas items!

This chair will house some homemade scarves starting next week!

What do you all think?!

I'm going to be heading back to the shop again this week to add a few more things before the weekend and will take some more photos! Are you interested in seeing more items that come into the shop and online? I started my very own Facebook page for my resale business today! I'll be featuring my booth space hopefully weekly with new additions, my refinishing projects and also fun thrift store stories and adventures, much like this blog but more often hopefully! I want to generate traffic to the store but also have a place to feature more items that I find!

Happy Hunting!


  1. Your little shop space looks great!

  2. It looks awesome! Seeing your space "almost" makes me want to consider doing it. LOL It's just so pretty!

    1. It's a lot of work but like I said in previous post all sales are final so no worrying about returns and negative feedback, much sounder piece of mind!

  3. It looks great! You put your heart into it and it shows. I love the mattress spring idea! So clever. Also the chalkboard is a good reminder to shoppers that buying vintage is a cool thing. You've got me thinking about a booth too, but I need to find a place that's not restricted to vintage.

    1. Thanks Lorraine! I did a lot of Pintrest research on different displays and how to arrange a shop. The store is more lifestyle than antique so it's a mix of new and old and it's really fun! I hope you find a place, let me know if you do!!
