Antique Mall Booth Update - March and April 2014

I know, I'm very, very late posting a booth update - I'm sorry, things have been crazy lately! But here I am now, ready to dish... :) First up, photos of my booth from April:

The short story is March was OK, and April sucked - even though I ran a two week 25% off sale at the end of the month.

There is some good news... my neighbor behind me installed new shelves, effectively creating a back wall for me, just like the shelf wall I have on the right side of my booth. So I don't need to go through the trouble and expense of building a new pegboard wall, like I had planned. Yay!

The other good news is that the mall is extending their hours until 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays for the summer. Here's hoping it helps... I need all the help I can get at this point... :P
