Why I Haven't Been Listing

I mentioned a few days ago that I decided to rent a booth at Orange Circle Antique Mall in the city of Orange.  I'm excited, nervous, anxious, and extremely tired from hunting for furniture for the booth and just renovating it.  Here are some of the before pictures.

I don't like peg boards and I really don't prefer the flooring right now.

More peg boards...sigh.

I have a lot of work to do.

So, I took down the peg boards.  I think I unscrewed about 100 screws by hand and now am suffering from carpal tunnel.

Those are the peg boards on the floor.  I feel so much better already having them taken off.  Still need to paint the walls and do something about the flooring.

I think I will be all moved in by this Saturday and my Etsy listings will be back to normal by then, also.  Hopefully, I will be able to list several pieces before the end of the week, but please be patient with me while I venture on this new project.  Thank goodness my sister is here to watch my son while I tear the booth apart!  Otherwise, I think I would pass out from exhaustion and there is no way I could take my son to the booth.  More pictures to come soon and a great special interview with one of my favorite vintage shops tomorrow!
