Last Weekend and the Evolving Booth

Last weekend, after a busy week, we decided that we needed to go treasure hunting.  We started out a bit late for where we were going... we wanted to try to hit a store that we are always missing in order to find some more furniture for me to paint for the booth.  We started out in Leiper's Fork.  It is such a cute, tiny little town... maybe smaller than Bell Buckle.  It has a few galleries and it is a great place to go hear live music.  They keep the town small and quaint on purpose.  I have heard that quite a few country music stars live out there.

All of the little houses that line the main part of town are beautifully restored.  Not my taste in colors, but still very cute.

This store is one of my favorite in the world.  Lots of goodies!  Like jaw dropping goodies... too bad I can only afford some French soap.  I didn't think that they would let us take photos inside, but next time I will ask... 
I also wish we would have gotten a photo of the owners cute black 50s model Ford with her logo on the side... adorable.  I am thinking Vintage Junky needs one of those *wink*  I will settle for anything bigger than our Honda for now... not so good for hauling furniture.

We then moved on to Dickson where we went to a ton of shops and took no photos... bad blogger!

We did find a few pieces though that are drying as we speak.  And, good thing too... I need some furniture!!

 We went out to the booth on Wednesday and added the Holly chairs and the Emilie table.

Then, I got a call Thursday afternoon that the table sold... well, that means most things would be on the floor.  So, I stayed up late and got some stuff together which I took out Friday morning and did a quick little makeover.

I added a fun flash card garland and just fluffed a bit.  I didn't have a table finished, so I stacked up some crates for the time being. 

I stenciled a crate for my flower pins and added some moss...

 The next day while we were in Dickson, I got the call that the Holly chairs sold and that someone wanted another pair of them (I only have one more chair like that, but it is in the process of getting Hollified... that may actually be a real word with a very different meaning....) So the next day, we went out to take a table and a stool and fluff a little more (no photos, we were in a rush for our company coming over)

Well, wouldn't you know it, that table sold yesterday.  So, I have a nearly empty booth until I can get back out there on Friday... a good problem to have, but a little overwhelming at the same time. So, thanks again for all your Vintage Junky love.  I love doing this.  I hope to show you a bedroom update later this week.  I am also hoping we get started on the stairs, but I am not holding my breath.... I am also planning a fabulous owl birthday party for my favorite 2 year old (and person in general!)

Bye for now!
