~ Booth Redo ~




Things are a little slower now in the selling department-so when the no-sale blues hit off I go to redo my space. Sorry if you are getting tired of looking at my space, but it is the one thing I am trying to be consistent with at least once a week. It really makes ALL the difference in selling. Even if something has sat for a decade-redoing will surely get it sold....Found another gauze canopy cover-sold one last week. I love it because it is not cheap but made extremely well and with creamy gauze (what more could you want.) I also decided to do the Japanese lantern white papery ball lights (without the lights). I suspended them from the new old gate piece that I laid across the top part of my space. This is the cheapest way to create a roof if you dont have one. Everyone knows that a successful booth is always one which has alot of chandeliers and lighting. Whoops!! I am a little short on those 2 things and one of my lightbulbs blew but I promise I will work on that. Flip flopped the furniture and brought in my dress forms and the little candles from the previous post. Not bad if I do say so myself. Rule of thumb is to try and not take out anything. Replace it and stack it and decorate it-you wont be disappointed!......

  5. Tiina,

    I never tire of seeing your beautifully decorated booth! Your decorating style is eye candy and inspiring! Still think you need to create a magazine of your style called 'Dream in Cream'. I think it would be a great success!

    Blessings,

  7. You are right about moving things around. Gives the illusion you've brought something new in and keeps it looking fresh! Now, if we just convince more dealers in the biz to do this, maybe their shops would be more interesting!!

  8. That grate is a great idea! I've tried a ladder, but it isn't quite right. And DO keep showing pix of the booth, since it ROCKS.

  9. Amen to everything you said about the re-arranging, its a must do, love what you have done. My husband always encourages me to mark down the stuff that is not moving and go onto the next thing, eventually it will sell if the price is right...get it gone and move onto the things that really generate a nice profit, then you'll make money.

  11. I love the booth redo! your shelf with the silver looks beautiful! I am learning this about moving things around..I am also amazed as to What actually sells!! things I would not even look twice at...and things I love take longer..also pricing is still tricky sometimes...I'm new at it so I am still learning...

  17. Good job on the redo. I am interested to know how you did the walls. I guess I will a little research (you mentioned you show the booth a lot)maybe you have already shared about that.

    Cheers,
