Well...I'm finally getting around to showing you some pictures of my new A Gathering Place Booth at Serendipity Market in Edmond, Oklahoma! With the addition of some amazing pieces of vintage furniture I'm happy to say she's pretty well stocked for now...(we won't talk about my AGP WEBSITE...EEEEK!)!
Here's a picture again of the space before we moved in! I know it's really hard to tell (photo at the top) with the light coming through the windows, but the store's windows (above) were accented with vintage doors and lots and lots of vintage shutters to diffuse the light. My Mr. AGPMan really outdid himself this time. He worked so hard on everything and somehow created this amazing wall/window area fashioned with only fabulous vintage architectural finds and a few pieces of new wood! What a man!
WHAT A MAN!
My guy was able to tie into the existing triangle pergola and thankfully it was possible to use almost all the previous pieces of framework used in my former space!
Here's another picture that shows the vintage crochet lace pieces used to decorate the pergola. They help to hide the sometimes harsh florescent lighting on the ceiling while also adding a bit of romantic interest.
This booth space has large terracotta colored tiles for the flooring and I absolutely LOVE how easy it is to move things around.
We were so tired after moving in a couple of large pieces today that I only managed to snap a few pictures...I hope to share more with you soon. I've had the busiest month I think I've ever had since April 1st...at least since my daughter married in 2007!
Owning a Booth, even a small one, is WORK!
WORK! WORK! WORK!
I'm finding out that I need to have something 'in the wings' at all times to replace large pieces of furniture at any given moment.
Since I needed to be out of my previous Booth by April 30th it proved to be difficult to finish the pergola with all my STUFF around...somehow we did it! Exciting...but tiring!
Here my guy is hard at work! I'm so blessed to have him as a husband, lover, business-partner and friend.
Here's a better shot of the wall before all the product was put into place!
I was so sick of painting trim-work and slats of wood I could have screamed! I'm sooo glad it's DONE!
Here's a picture of my first Booth at Serendipity when I opened it March 1st of this year. A sweet little space but it proved to be wayyyy tooo small!
I hope to show you more photos as the months go along. Of all the places I've ever had a shoppe (and I've had several!), Serendipity Market in Edmond, Oklahoma, is by far my favorite. The owners are wonderful (more than I could ask for) and my co-vendors are friendly and hard working! It's a very eclectic place to visit and a fabulous place to shop for home decor and fashions, too!
Thank you for visiting and hanging with me while I've been MIA!
Storms are ragging here in Oklahoma so I'm off until things clear up and the hail goes away.
Love to you...
