Be sure to check out our new showcase at the Antique Society — these pictures aren’t very good but they’ll give you some idea what it looks like:
The risers I planned to use didn’t work — having a little trouble setting up displays lately — so I used the wire locker baskets temporarily. Need to figure out something better by next month . . . Marilyn
Remnants Show Booth

We sold really good at the Remnants of the Past Antique Show last weekend despite my disappointment with the way our space turned out. The other booths at the show were outstanding and I have to admit I was a little intimidated when we first arrived. We had outstanding merchandise — just too much duplication and too much clutter. Oh well: live and learn, right? We’re hoping to do it again in November and I think — I know, I can do a better job.
We took all littles to the show and set up five tables around the perimeter with two floating islands in the middle. Hung scrim from the piping surrounding the booth and draped the tables with lace and crochet table cloths, layered with linen runners. Reluctantly, I am posting some pictures:
See what I mean? Cluttered vs. vignetted.
We’re in Sebastopol now working on our spaces at the Antique Society. I added an incredible zinc fixture in the center of the large space that will hold linens and silverplate. Doing the Remnants Show in San Luis Obispo tired me out so the unloading at Sebastopol was delayed a little — but it’s coming together and I’ll post pictures in a day or two for you, including our new 8′ long showcase display and the new zinc baker’s rack display.
