Where The Sell Pile Went

Riverfront Anitque Mall, booth space
Where did all that stuff go I have been showing you the past few weeks?

Well, I rented a small booth at Riverfront Antique Mall.

Down two aisles from my W-10 booth.

Ten by ten with a two-foot space out into the aisle.

I named it:  
Distressed Donna

I do not spend time or money decorating a booth.

You will see the transformation over the next couple of weeks.

Things are selling fast.

The trellis and the iron porch span have sold.

The gray dresser has sold.

I used some Graphics Fairy images to create EYE- CATCHING tags.

The dolls have sold.

The rocker in the corner has sold.

Several of the old books have sold.

I had a display of cake pedestals - gone before I could take a photo!

I plan to keep this booth sparse.

However, other dealers have a betting pool going as to how long it takes before I load it to the ceiling.

I only have plans - no promises!


See y'all!

  1. Loving that sparse display. It makes each item really stand out. Sweet!

  2. Wow! Keeping it sparse may be a great strategy for selling. People grab what they can before it is all gone!

  3. Haha, your friends know you well! You're amazing, and in an amazingly blessed area. I think people would grab your stuff from the back of your truck if you'd let them.

  4. Donna ... congratulations on your new booth. I love the sparse look ... each item gets attention as you have displayed it so well with the large tags. No digging through piles of stuff. Some people love that and some (like me), love to dig for treasures.

  5. Wow, I think it helps to really move larger items but you will fill it up I think! :)

  6. I love a sparse display as well! You somehow get the feeling that it is almost all gone and you have to act quickly :-)

  7. Sparse! Love it! Keep just ahead of your customers. They will keep coming back to the "sell out" booth. I know I would be a regular customer if you were down here in Cajun Country. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  8. Glad to see everything is selling so well! To be expected as all so nice.

  9. I bit the bullet and took 2 items of furniture to the local antiques mall and I have them for sale on consignment. I used the tags you made me for my price tags. They look so cute!

  10. Oh don't you love it when things sell really makes you think you just may be doing something right...Love love your style...

  11. Oh Donna, that is wonderful! I'm so happy for you!! I know you are excited to have a new booth and to have everything selling so quickly! Chucks should be tickled pink! ;-)

  12. Donna this is so great that you sold so much. Your re loves are beautiful so no surprise to see they are selling quickly. You go girl!

  13. It look's great Donna !! I'm keeping the faith you'll keep it "tidy". Lol TT

  14. Wow, I wish my booth sold that fast! Two go girl! I always get excited when things move and bummed when they don't. So happy for you!

  15. I'm not surprised that your great stuff is selling so well. It's a great idea to have one booth full up for the buyers who like to search for treasures, and one sparse with focal pieces for the buyers who don't.

  16. Loks nice! I'll gladly take the blame for this one. By the way, I've got two weeks, three days, six hours and 34 minutes in the "when will she pile it up?" pool. All the other slots were taken!

  17. Just getting caught up on all your posts Donna. I love your other booths but I think this is a great idea. It appeals to the hoity toity's who go for the art gallery type setting. Your pieces really shine when they can stand alone like that. Hope your having a great summer :)
