More bones...

How do you build a booth...well, you take 3 blonds, two screw guns and a heap of wood...and this is what you get...VOILA...a gazebo...Piper, Lorie and myself crawled around on the floor, up and down ladders wrapping poor man's linen(burlap) 'round the beams, pushing this cute lil' structure to fruition...Friend's Candle Shed!

Today Piper is working away in the shop producing candles for her new location. We thought the 'GREEN' theme would be perfect for her space, since her candles are soy from farmers in the USA and her candle tins are made of recycled metal, all made in the USA by a family in New Jersey for over 100 years.

I don't know about you guys, but I feel change in the economy, us Americans don't stand around long and let 'em beat us down...we get up, dust ourselves off and head out for a little retail therapy!!!

Lorie and I have been amazed at the interest in the new location. People are emailing from all over the area, many drive by, stretching necks to see what's going on inside their mini-mall that's been vacant for quite some time...dealers are scrambling to get a space, two more yesterday, word is traveling fast!

So call us up if you want to be a part of the new look in antique malls, or as we like to call it...SHOPS IN A SHOP...as everyone will be hanging their own shingle, advertising their own shops...dealer helping dealer...

You can't BELEIVE how excited I am! I LIVE in park View, and I LOVE to hunt for the unique!
I WORK on Saturday (I work at the scrapbooking store in Davenport)), and only have 30 minutes to hunt and peck that day, but I plan to be a regular haunt!

First Sharon, the booth looks phenomenal. No one will be able to pass it by. Your header picture is terrifyingly beautiful, if you know what I mean. Are those Sharkey's footprints I see in the pic?
