This month, I will officially join the ranks of the nation's antiques dealers. I just rented a little 6' x 10' booth at an antiques mall near my home town. Since I specialize in vintage linens and kitchenware, hopefully my space will feature a lot of Pyrex, Lustroware, melamine dishes...you get the idea. Apparently, I will have free reign to decorate what is basically a little room all to itself. I was thinking of going with a red and white kitchen theme, or with a tropical barkcloth theme. I am so excited and a little nervous, I can't wait to get started!
Do any veteran antiques dealers, retro decorators, or any of my dear readers have sage words of advice for someone just starting out? You know, what to do, what not to do, what you typically like to see when you go antiques shopping? Any fun booth decorating ideas? Thanks, guys and gals!
