TRYING SOMETHING NEW - HOW QUAINT

I am trying something new....I am renting space at a cute home that has monthly sales..HOW QUAINT is the name of the sale. This is the room that has my treasures in. It's a 4 day sale.
It was a bathroom. It has a window that I have placed aprons and have hung hankies that people can buy. This has been my "job" for the last 2 weeks, getting treasures marked and decorating my space. It will be open this Thursday-Sunday. I hope lots of items sell. A girl needs her own "pin" money and I hope this is the way I'll have mine.


Guess who lost her 1st tooth today while eating spaghetti at her Grandma's house...yes..it was Kailee. You can see the new tooth already. She's hoping the "tooth fairy" will leave her some money tonight :) Tomorrow I'm off to a great craft sale in an old, huge barn.They sell lots of unique items as well as antiques and real pumpkins. I'm looking for white ones and maybe some bittersweet if it isn't too expensive. I 'll also try to do some Christmas shopping there. It's a little drive and the leaves are turning, so maybe I'll get to take some nice photos. I'll post a little before and after soon. Just a mirror in a new color. Happy Wednesday. Warmly, Deb

How Quaint...it's cute!! All of your "pretties" look so nice. I hope you have much success.

We have an Antique Mall that is in a house...a Ranch-style house, probably built in the 40's/50's...maybe 4 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and a Family Room. Very nicely done. One of our favorite places.

~Blessings,
Jan

I hope you sell out ! Is the sell just for the 4 days ? Then do you have to move your stuff out? Or is this a special sale for 4 days only ? Inquiring mind wants to know ! Ha !

I think a bathroom would be a wonderful space for someone who just has a few things to sell, sweetpea! I'd kinda like that one myself. Good luck with your sale. Ooooh, and the tooth fairy better NOT forget!!!! ;-)

Smooches,
Connie

I love that idea!!! I can't wait to hear how you do. Your things look nice. I hope it is successful for you.

It is so cute when those little teeth come out. Waiting to see what the tooth fairy leaves is a highlight for sure!!

Hi Sis!!! That is tooo cute...how quaint! Hope you sell lots! Wish I could go with you to the craft show...I love looking around. Now that the kids are older, I end up having to go by myself, which can be kinda boring!

Yup...new banner...just trying something new!

Hi Deb,

Thanks for the visit....paperwork is going okay. Few more little things for the mortgage guy and just earn more money to pay downpayment. Sellers want to move UP closing (ACK). We may or may not go for it depending on how business goes the next few weeks. Keep praying!

:-D Yours, Chez

I wish you lots of good luck with your new venture. I can remember when our Granddaughter lost her first tooth. It was such a fun time with the tooth Fairy coming!

Sounds like a fun trip and with Fall on it's way I hope you see lots of pretty colors...m...

What did the tooth fairy bring???? I remember my sister one year didn't have her glasses on and gave her daughter a $10 bill...yikes! She thought that's what she would get for each one of her teeth!!

Stop by...I tagged you!

How fun!! My mom and I rent a space in a boutique too. We have so much fun with it. You can see it here: http://www.onawhimantiques.com

Love the picture of the tooth! My son just lost his first tooth too a couple of days ago. He was so excited when the tooth fairy came!

I just found your blog and have enjoyed reading it. Good luck with your selling at "How Quaint"

Hugs,
