We had a special sale for a bus load of women on a ladies' weekend adventure. This meant that we had to have our spaces ready more than a week early from the normal monthly market at Second Hand Rose in Buffalo, Minnesota. I am almost never ready early and often am the last one setting up on the Sunday evening before the normal event. I have been bringing items in since the last sale. I brought a load from my soon to be abandoned storage building on Friday and finshed my set up by 10 PM. And I wasn't the last dealer to complete my set up.
I will probably bring in a few more items and maybe do a little bit of rearranging, but I am now ready for the October market.
|The north wall of my space.|
|A piece of church fretwork, lantern, arts and crafts umbrella stand, silverplate tray and knick-knack shelf, just sort of stacked together.|
|Silverplate tray sits on the umbrella stand making a small table.|
|1907 3-D (high relief) Atlas School Map of Africa. Decorative wood fragments sit on a table in front.|
|1907 map of South America.|
|The pile on the east wall. The table is a narrow drop leaf with only one leaf and a small drawer in the end.|
|Appears to be a heavy antique vest from India.|
|Tamborines, 3 vintage Franch berets, a marjong set.|
|Rolled up antique runner, Doctor's bag and big bucket.|
|Fancy wood finial|
|Mid-Century Modern double desk lamp.|
|Ten Girls by Dickens|
|Early Minnesota Stories|
|The west wall. The table is a vintage small harvest table that will make a great sofa table or TV stand.|
|And it's orange.|
|Vintage stained glass window|
|1920's woman's coat. Seal with minl collar and wonderful blue and gold liner.|
|Tall Mid Century Modern Italian art glass lamp.|
I like the variety of items that I have this month. Let's hope that the buyers feel the same way.
