3 days and counting!

Well...I got an entire booth for the Saturday Open House (and beyond!)  Let the full-blown panic begin!!

I have been working like a madwoman trying to finish projects, create price tags and imagine how this booth was going to look!  Today, I got to take the first load over and start setting up.

Rug and table cloths are mine.

My booth is by one of the two entrances and has a large window on one side.  This is both good and bad.  Good in that it provides a lot of natural light.  Bad, in that it provides A LOT of natural (afternoon) light!  I've been warned that I will need to frequently rotate items near the window to avoid fading.  In fact, the streaming sunlight made it difficult to take clear pictures!

The display unit and the round table belong to the store owner, but she has been kind enough to let me use them until I come up with something else.  The shelving has the name of the previous booth-renter on it, so tomorrow, I'm either going to paint over the name or put up some wallpaper.  I am whipping up a (temporary) sign to go up there too!

 I will try to take better close-ups tomorrow.  The store is only open Thursday through Saturday afternoon, so I have to wait to receive a call that someone is at the store and can let me in.  Eventually, I should be given a key, so I can "fluff" on days the store is closed.

All-in-all, I am quite pleased with how it looks on the first day!  I was having trouble visualizing how the stuff would fit, but it came together pretty quickly.  It will probably change tomorrow, as I bring in more stuff!

I'm really loving my "suitcase table".  Hope someone feels the same and makes a home for it!

So, there is your first peek!  Let the panic continue!
