Many changes have been going on in my house and with my business lately. Those of you who might be new reading my blog, I have a home based business selling silk floral arrangements and accessories. I have recently decided to turn my love of discovering great vintage pieces and decorative items found at market to my inventory.
Several days back I decided it was time to go through my numerous bins of thrifted finds to just see what I had collected in the past several months. Truly I had forgotten some things. Earlier this year my friend Beth and I had decided to open an “Occasional Sale” shop, just planning to open one long weekend out of the month. Because we didn’t want to commit to a shop tying us down 6 days a week we knew in order to be successful our rent would have to be very low. We wanted to stay in our little community. We spent numerous hours searching for a spot to open our dream shop. It was all right there…a vision in our heads of what it would look like and how people were going to see it as a destination location! After searching unsuccessfully for a good six months I have decided to continue doing shows in my home two or three times a year and foregoing a shop at least for the time being.
Being organizationally challenged I was sick of opening up this closet and not being able to find anything!
It was time to uncover my treasures
Now I have my whites together
A green shelf
Hidden before were these little salt and pepper shakers
The colorful birds on the right are a GW find with an Anthropology tag on bottom
My newer fruits are together
A few veggies
A variety of orbs ordered from market
A partial view of my workroom
And a cute little memo holder for ideas and things to remember
I’m pretty sure God knew I had too many other things going on in my life to be a store owner right now.
More organizing in my future but for now it feels good to have this much done.
Thanks for stopping by Designs on 47th Street today!
