I somehow missed getting a photo of the full back wall of the booth, which I wanted to show you because my Dad was in with me one day a couple weeks ago, measuring it. He is going to help me make a new, taller pegboard wall that will hide all of my neighbors stuff! I can't wait - I can definitely use more pegboard room!
I am also still on the hunt for new shelves - I found a small all wood shelf to replace my small white one, so I'm hoping to find one or two tall wood shelves (or at least shelves that look like wood) to go with it. I've been surfing for ideas on how to add some character to my shelves once I've got them - what do you all do to spice up your plain Jane antique mall shelving?
I'm a little torn as far as what I want the booth to be for in the long run - so far I've stocked it with a lot of smalls, but really the main reason I wanted a booth to begin with was to sell larger items that I find that would be too much of a pain to sell online. So, if I want to have room for some larger items, I will have to reduce the space I've got available for smalls... I'm still thinking about it, I'll keep you all posted...
Anyway, here is the very short breakdown of what I sold in January:
Candy Tin - $6.00
Farm Cookbook - $5.00
Kroehler Chair - $40.00
Total Commission / Credit Card Fees - $5.04
Total Profit (not including cost of items / time spent working) - $45.96
Rent is $72.00, so I had to cut them a check for $26.04. Here's hoping February is better!!
