Booth Space ~ A Work In Progress!

Hey everyone, hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It’s Saturday evening and we just returned from our church service.  We attend CCV (Christ Church of the Valley) in Peoria, AZ.  It’s one of the fastest growing churches in the U.S.  My husband and I were so excited when we found it after moving here.  I just started volunteering tonight at the Information Center while my husband drives around a golf cart offering rides to and from the parking lots.  What a great group of people I get to work with.  Such a blessing!

Anyway, I thought I would write a quick post before leaving for Market tomorrow morning.  I’m excited for days of endless shopping in Vegas.  Our bags are packed and we’re ready for the short drive tomorrow.  It will be a few days before I write again but I plan on taking lots of pictures to share with you when we return.  My husband (Mr. Organization) has our little pull-along travel bag with all the necessities for shopping and meeting with vendors.  It’s always exciting when our badges arrive in the mail.  It makes us feel so official.

We recently moved into a new, larger space at our location in Historic Downtown Glendale ~ A Mad Hatter’s Antiques and Collectibles.  We’re still not completely moved in but we finally have our two side walls built.SAM_0336We took a trip to our favorite salvage yard ~ Porter Barn Wood and picked up these three vintage doors.   Brought them home, hosed them down and knocked off all the loose paint.  I was thinking about brushing on a white wash or something onto the middle door but for now I think I’ll just leave it natural.  It’s kind of growing on me!SAM_0339And here’s the hubs securing the shelving to the wall before I start filling them.  Do you remember these?  They are Ethan Allen and used to be in their Dandelion Yellow finish from the 80’s.  I finished them with CeCe Caldwell’s Paints to match the buffet below.  For now, these items are not for sale since I NEED them for display.SAM_0340Here’s the other side of the booth.  We extended the wall to the ceiling using peg board.  It wouldn’t be my first design choice but it does make it easier to hang mirrors, picture frames, chalkboards, etc… I’m not allowed to hang anything from the ceiling so we’ve got to be as creative as possible.  At-least the color I painted the wall is pretty!!!  When I return next week, I’ll fill the booth full of treasures.  I’ve just had no time to merchandise this space and I can’t wait to make it beautiful.  Once it’s complete I’ll share more photos.

So what are we going to find this year at Market???

Here’s a few photos from past markets…jkd_buildingb_02_w580_h387source

My feet are already hurting just thinking about it (but in a good way).  What an AMAZING complex!


Something for everyone!


Sweet vignettes!


Bold colors!


So many choices!


Now THIS looks like my kind of stuff!  Oooo… Ahhh…

See you when I get home!  Until then, may you have a blessed week! ~ Judy

  1. I love, love, love the idea of using doors as a backdrop to a booth. The side wall in my booth was the back of bookcases that the vendor next door uses for his thousands and thousands of books. I hung muslin curtains to hide the ugliness and it softens the area so beautifully. But the other side needs something and I may just have to follow your lead.

    Have fun at market.
