I’m excited to tell you about a new endeavor I’ve been working on for several weeks. I’m opening a booth in the local antique mall I blogged about here. I have four weeks to get this little spot ready to go. I’ll be painting walls, painting the floor and removing the existing metal and awning:
I’ve always dreamed of opening a shop, but felt like I’d be way in over my head at this point in my life. But, you know how I love the thrill of the hunt. So, the booth is the perfect solution. As for what I’ll be selling, it’ll be things that I like. I’m trying to be careful that every piece I choose is something I would want to put in my own home. I’m excited about sharing my finds and reviving furniture. I’ve never done anything like this before, and I’m sure there will be lots to learn as I go. For now, I’ve signed a six-month lease so we’ll see what happens.
My booth will be located just inside the back room, right by the new café. The aisles are named like streets, and I have a Park Avenue address :)
Of course, you know the best part of this is the actual treasure hunting. Few things make me happier.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing some of the furniture makeovers and items I’ll be selling. (Unfortunately, I won’t be doing any shipping, but I hope my non-local readers will still enjoy hearing about the process!)
If you haven’t visited yet, the Catawba River Antique Mall is located in Belmont, NC. I’ll be officially opened for business on May 1st. Hope to see some of you there!
