 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!

 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 least since my daughter married in 2007!
 Owning a Booth, even a small one, is 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...

Dearest Rebecca,
Those windows are quite a contrast with that previous booth. Even if you had to make the bright light a bit more diffuse, with all those vintage windows and shutters, it is now showing off your furniture and treasures FAR better. Hard work indeed but now you got Pentecost weekend for relaxing just a bit...
Hugs to you both,

Stacey said...

Rebecca, your booth is amazing! I wish you great success there.

BrushedByAnAngel said...

Well, you have done a simply marvelous job!! I love how much more open it feels. Yep, you are one lucky lady to have such a great hubby. Now, one question....where did you find such pretty items for your booth....and when did you find the time??

Okay I'm just sick now. SERIOUSLY? A black sweater while using white paint... are you kidding me? Hehe. You crack me up. I'm so happy for you and wish you nothing but joy and success with your not new, new venture. I pray God watches over this new venue of business & brings you nothing but positive! Hugs. Tammy

It looks so beautiful! So worth all the work. People are going to love shopping there!
I hope the storms stay away and there isn't any damage. Storms can be so scarey!

Oh, Becky! To day that I'm impressed is an understatement. I am awed. This space looks gorgeous, and I can't imagine all the work that went into it. You two really knocked yourselves out. it is just breathtaking. Now, sit back and take a bow and enjoy your beautiful new shop space. I hope you can hear me applauding you all the way from Florida. I'm in the middle of mortar dust this morning (more on my blog), but things are moving along. Hopefully, they will finish replacing the bricks this week??? Pray for me! :-)

Love you,


Unknown said...

It is absolutely fabulous! I was thinking of you (and praying for you) last night when on the news I heard about tornadoes in and around OK. Stay safe, my friend and may God richly bless your business!

All your hard work paid off, it is beautiful. The small place was wonderful but you outdid yourself now.
Lots of blessing, sit back and relax.

Ginger said...

Your booth looks awesome. I'm planning on coming down sometime this week if the weather permits. We had 71 mph winds last night! I love your crochet ceiling, just beautiful. Can't wait to see it.

One Shabby Old House said...

What a beautiful space Rebecca! You and your hubby are a wonderful team. It's a blessing to have that in your life. I share the same blessing of a hubby that is so supportive of me. We are lucky girls!
God Bless your new place.

Judy Ann Lincicum said...

Rebecca, your space is absolutely beautiful! I especially love the crochet to cover the top of your area. The whole space just draws you in and says comfort, creativity and Home! My eye is missing your beautiful hand painted train cases and your altered bottles, two of my favorite items. I so wish I were there in Edmonton so I could see each and every item in person. So pretty; you have outdone yourself this time. You and your AGP man. Can't forget him. Hugs, Judy from Arizona

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

It's so pretty and feminine, how I wish I could shop at your booth Rebecca.
Good luck in your new location and way bigger space.

Cathy said...

Absolutely heavenly! I love the lace ceiling! You have such gorgeous vision!

Marilyn said...

The window wall with the doors and shutters is amazIng!!I need one of those transporter things from Star Trek to zip into your town! Without it, I'll be happy going to the city to see my girl and let my sweet SIL be my chauffeur. Doesn't that word sound like one of those fancy French words I can't read?! But, you know if the opportunity for a road trip pops up, I'll be coming your way to see all these lovelies in person.♥♫

Lady Pamela said...

I have never seen so much beauty in one spot. (even the one with the paint roller :)
What a work of heart you and your hubby do. I could seriously buy one of everything in your booth. Wish I could be closer to shop.
