Christmas at the Booth

 Went to the booth today and loaded up with some Christmas goodies and will go again later this week. The shop owner said the customers are looking for Christmas things! GOOD! I must admit that it is Hard to "let go" of the Christmas goodies, even though I have A LOT!

I'm loving my one day a week job! I almost feel guilty accepting money! That's a great job!

Had a craft day last week with my girlfriend. She made a wreath and I finished my PUTZ house for a swap. I had to make a couple "extra" ones! I'll show them soon as I don't want to "spoil" it for my partner. I'm mailing it later this week.

Thank you so MUCH for your kinds words about my wreath.  If you have wanted to make one, do it! Start with the inside of the wreath, then the outside and fill inside after that!

Can't believe that Thanksgiving is 18 days away. Not sure on the plans here! I must get going on my Christmas cards. ..busy like the rest of you guys! Take Care!

Warmly,
deb

I wish you were closer so I could shop in your shop.
I finshed my house today as well. Glad I made a second one for me....I love it. I can't wait to see all of them. It was fun.
Have a good week.

I love your sweet shop and wish I could see it in person. I can't believe it is so close to Thanksgiving already either- xo Diana

Your booth is just fabulous. I'm sure I'd be standing there for hours. I can't wait to get my Halloween part treasures put away (it's going to take forever) so that I can start Christmas crafting and decorating.

After I get home I'm going to have to visit a few of my favorite antique malls and see what Christmas goodies I can find...not that I need any more!

hugs, Linda

I feel the same way -- hard to let go of vintage Christmas but it does feel good to sell some it. The antique mall where I sell is packed with Christmas items already ... it's as though it happened overnight!

Vintage Christmas decorations are fairly hard to come.by. I collect Lefton Christmas angels.

Deb, The booth is wonderful. I wish I lived nearby so I could check all those goodies out. You're getting me inspired to get out there and do some early shopping.

Susie said...

Deb, That is the kind of booth where I have to touch everything. Gaaa...I can't help it. Hope you make lots of sales. Smiles, Susie

I HAVE to visit your booth! When I get healed up and can get out I'll have to get in touch with you and make sure I go when you are working. Your booth looks great and I can't wait to shop! You are making another thing that I have wanted to do for at least 2 years now!!! Those putz houses! I found the patterns, have the supplies but just haven't gotten around to it...I can't wait to see yours! I know I will like them. I loved your wreath! Have a sweet day!

Linda said...

I love looking at all of your Christmas things. I love decorating for Christmas, even tho I have drastically cut back in recent years. I have a vintage wreath of my mom's that I will have to post later. I can't wait to see the Putz....guess I have not been reading enough to know what it is. :-)

Creative Breathing said...

Deb, I have always wondered how you resist keeping all of the wonderful vintage things you purchase for your shop. But Christmas! You must have wonderful willpower!
PS. Catching up on visiting. Your wreath is fabulous!!!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Love your Christmas goodies, Deb...and your wreath is gorgeous! Congrats on your new job, too!

✿Carol✿ said...

Deb, your booth looks so Holly Jolly! The antique and thrift stores around here are so slow to get Christmas stuff in, once Halloween is over. I think I'm going to start decorating this week, because for some reason I'm so excited and just can't wait til after Thanksgiving!

Old Fashioned Gal said...

No, I wish those were my Christmas goodies. They were just some inspiration photos! I didn't find some bubble lights yesterday. However, I broke 1 and found out that only 5 of the 14 work :(
Oh well, they'll still look cute.
I would definitely shop at your booth! :)
