I have been busy setting up trees, marking items and making Christmas folk art for my two booths. When I had my shop open on the farm, I met many wonderful customers. I know what they like and on occasion, I will set up a “private sale” for just for them. This gives them a chance to “pick” first and buy before I stock my booths or go to a show.
So, I am showing you what I did. Fortunately, this past year, as I dug in a box of stuff I put all the Christmas items in pile – so I could find it later.
I started out with the –bones- you might say. I carried in a table, all the extras I wanted for the display and the boxes and tubs of items for sale.
I did this right in my entry….kinda tight – but it worked.
I had an idea in my head of how I wanted it to look, I put the display items in place first and moved it around till I liked it. My regular furniture helped with the backdrop and display.
Once that was done, I could do the fun part and decorate.
I bought this neat old primitive cranberry scoop this past summer at a little auction “in town” – I’ve always wanted one, but they seem to go too high – not this one. I am using it for my decorations when I host Thanksgiving here.
When she came in the house, she said “are you all ready for Christmas?” I said “No, I did all of this for you…” I think she liked it. Well, I enjoyed the company, conversation and sales.
I will have some of these items on Ebay next week. I hope to list Monday and Tuesday. So, if you want, check it out. I have a link at the top that goes to my seller page.
