Workin' the Littles

As a certified "booth owner" for more than six months now (ha!)....I've learned a few things. One of them happens to be the importance of the 'littles'. I know I've said this before, but when the big items like furniture take a while to sell, it's imperative that my booth be filled with enough 'little' items to make me 1) be able to pay rent and 2) keep being encouraged with sales. Those littles also draw interest to your booth......they make people wander in, which often times, results in buying.

I scout for 'littles' everywhere I go. I'm drawn to anything metal that could be used for displays....anything with texture....real wood.....unusual items of interest. Things you can't find just anywhere. And I usually never leave them alone.....I almost always do a little drybrush of white, or paint the metal a fun color....something to make it pop.

There are definite times when I wonder about if I should have done that or not, but when they are up and displayed, I usually am always glad I did. Just something different.....

The 'littles' with some white & green. Ready to be tagged & delivered!

Hi Flo!
I hope your trip was wonderful. I'm glad you made it back safely (and forever changed, No doubt) I'm sure summer is wrapping up quickly for y'all with everyone in your family going back to school soon. I love all your "littles" and now I get it...I love the big furniture transformations but sometimes it's the little things in life that getcha by :)
Take care,
