A New Venture

Happy Wednesday Friends! As I'm writing this it is late Wednesday evening so that means the weekend is just a little bit closer; and that is always a good thing.

For a few weeks now I've been hinting around at something- I mentioned that the yellow chairs I redid are for sale. And if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen this picture:

Those my friends would be price tags for the furniture I'm going to sell!

People having been telling me for quite some time I should try and sell my creations. I've been hesitant because once a hobby becomes more of a job sometimes the fun is taken out of it. And of course- people like my creations but do they like them enough to buy them? But a booth space happened to open up in one of my favorite junk shops and I am taking it as a sign that maybe I should try this out.

If you live around here I'm going to be in Abby Lane. My booth is called C & S Finds (named for Con and Saw-Man!).  

For right now I'm just hoping to break even on my rent for the space. But I would love to fix up my little nook to look something like this:

I need to scavenge a bunch of pallets for the back wall. I'd use my wine bottle pendant lights for accent lighting. I think the half roof helps give it feel more like a separate room. But this will probably come down the road.

For now I'm still getting things set up and will hopefully have some installation pictures to share soon! And hopefully sell a few things along the way.
