Can I fit all that?

Today was a glorious day!
The weather was a bit cool, but the sun was shining all day!
A great day for loading the truck.
I've been a bit worried about how I was gonna fit all the inventory into a 10x14 booth.
So, Craig put down some tape measures to mark out the booth,
and I went to town cramming it all in there.
No place to go but up!
I did it!
Of course I will have extra things on the truck in case we sell something.
It saves so much time when you get to a show if you know where things are going.
I know it's hard to tell anything about what it's gonna look like since there are so walls to stop the eye!
But I think when I get out all the smalls and some fluff stuff it will be fine.

I love this drafting table!
But it was missing it's top, just so happened we had an old top on hand.
It was exact size needed for the base!
Looks like it's always been on there.
Throw in a couple of bar stools and there you have it!

I am so excited about the show!
You don't miss it!
Feb. 2-4
Hendersonville, TN

I had so much fun working today!

You are amazing girl!!!! I just love everything! You're so smart to do a "dry" run on arranging your space, you can tweak it when you get there but the big stuff has it's place. I hope you have a wonderful show Theresa...I know you will! hugs and love, Dawn

Glenda/MidSouth said...

You 2 are pros at this type thing! :-D

I was hoping to get up there for the show, but does not look like it is going to happen.

Oh you work so darn hard TOT! I can't wait to see what your booth with it's walls will look like at the show. I wish I could see it in person though, but your beautiful photos will have to do. It's bound to look awesome with so many awesome pieces to fill it with.
Sending you hugs today from me!!!

OMGoodness Theresa! I see some awesome stuff. This is one of the hard things about blogs. You can't go to all these great shows. Good luck!!

Stephanie said...

GREAT stuff! I hope you have the BEST show - can't wait to hear all about it!

Into Vintage said...

I'm smiling because I too do a 'test' set-up and then photograph my rough layout to use when I set up at the show. Because by then I've forgotten everything. :-)

Wishing I could be in Nashville for Vintage Market Place. Hope you sell a bunch.

Wish I could make it to your show, because I am MAJORLY lusting after 2 wood crates you have in your pictures... :)

Also, just discovered your blog and I love it!

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

Everything looks fantastic!! I am sure you will sell out! Wasn't able to do the show this year cuz I was rearranging the schedule of too many people and it was just nuts. I plan on it for next year though. Best of Luck and take tons of pics.

I spy...tons of great junque! I always mean to do the test run set-up but wimp out. Besides, if I set it up I usually find out that it will not all fit in the car so I stuff the car and wing it at the show!Looking forward to the show.I'm sure I will have a blast.

Just came across your blog and love, love, love all the things that you have for the show. I especially love the suitcases. They are great for so many things...stacked for tables and storage galore. I'm now hoping I can come to Hendersonville to check out the rest of the show.
