Rats. It sold.

I put out some new pretty things in my booth that Mother bought at garage sales through the months. It all made my booth look really pretty. I was very pleased.
That pretty aqua-blue glass canister set just looked delightful on those shelves. It got me inspired to get all the blue and green stuff together... and make it look coordinated. I must have walked by my booth 5 times after I displayed all that. "People are going to be so impressed with how my booth looks," I thought. I liked the look so much that I took some pictures. Fortunately. Because the very next day... the blue canister set was sold!! I was complaining about this to another dealer, and he said, "Uh, Nancy, uh, I hate to break it to you, but the whole idea is to sell the stuff."
I guess he was right.

Well, definitely we priced that canister set way too low.

Here's the old chair I put out - and that thing on the wall with the flowers.
And here is the little doll high chair. (You can click the picture to make bigger.)
I guess I must have put out 15 new things from Mother this week.

It's a fun life.

I love all that pretty blue! Of course it wouldn't go in my red kitchen, but that color -- WOW! I can see why you were sad it sold so fast. It did make me laugh though -- I wold have done the same thing after putting together such a nice display. Obviously selling things isn't what you enjoy most about your booth.

I agree -- life IS fun!

That would've been a great canister set to put in a light yellow kitchen with blue accents. Too bad that's not my kitchen.

I wish I knew you had those cannisters... I would have loved those... If you see anymore.... :) :) :)

You do such a great job with your booth! It's a wonder you can keep anything on the shelves.

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
