On Decorating My Space - 3 Days Before the Sale

I hate my space at the Porch. It has no cohesion or sense of direction. It looks like I filled the trailer from the garage and dumped it in a heap at the shop. The Shabbies are there wonderfully decorating and tieing their spaces together. Their merchandise is all coordinated in the color du jour and the presentation is spectacular. (Damn I must have missed the meeting where they decided that aquas, teals and turquoise were in and old car rusty primer was out).

They are merchandisers with a flair for decorating. I am a stacker piling the boxes of Wheaties on the metal shelves. They are presenters offering the customers a cozy pink nest. I am the junk man wondering if I should have washed that mirror after only 20 years in the garage.

Think of it this way.....your space will stand out and be noticed....thus bringing in MORE shoppers! :) And then you have to think about the husbands of the women who shop in all the "roses" just know THEY will migrate to your space. Hope you sell lots and lots!

Wow, I haven't been on your blog since first checking it out - what fun! I'll be back more often. Your display at The Porch looks absolutely awesome - you did wonders with your display, it makes you want to look at everything - and your pieces are great - they feel very fresh from their new outlook. Your planning and work getting it all together was worth it - too great! I have alot of catching up to do if I'm going to keep up with your blog!
