Banner Fun

 Still selling lots of banners... burlap and shipping tag banners.

Found this shop on Etsy with great photos using her banners..... Such cute ideas!  And a real photographer took this photo FOR SURE... read on to see why I say that...
I tried this with my kids on Sunday. I made a "thank you" banner for the booth, but held it back to try this out. We were all dressed ready for church so I said, "Come on kids... Follow me to the back yard so we can take this quick picture... It will be a piece of cake." Yeah, right!
 Taking one picture with three kids is never a piece of cake... And then I added a banner made of paper on a breezy morning! This is why I am NOT a photographer!

Big Brother and Sister were willing to make it work... but it was quite comical as we were waiting for the perfect moment to take the picture without the "thank you" flapping in the wind.... and at that point Little Mr. 58 had lost complete interest and was driving his tractor around the yard.....

 Oh well, I will try again another time... We all got a great laugh out of it.

Merry Monday at the Mall

Hope you all are having a Merry Monday!

Here are a few snapshots of Booth 58 today and some other Christmas goodies around Antique Company Mall.

Look at the sheet music stars mom dropped scattered on the floor!

Eileen's booth looks great.  Love this snowy birdhouse.

Beautiful vintage nativity.... Sure is prettier than the Fisher Price version my kids are playing with this month... But not quite as "kid friendly!" 

Carolyn's cute red metal high chair... and I love her Christmas flashcards all around her booth.

Stay Warm!  Thankful for cooler temps finally around here.  Maybe we will get to use our Booth 58 sleds soon?  My kids are hoping for that!

Real people buy our stuff!

Many times, Mom and I have conversations about our sweet customers:

What do you think someone will do with this?
Not sure what this is... but someone will love it!
This is going to find a perfect home in just the right spot in someone's house.

It is so fun to get to meet them in person.  I got to meet a new friend this week while Sister and I fluffed a bit.  (Hi "V"!)  She was so sweet to compliment us on our space and tell me that she loves coming to ACM to shop our booth.  She told me about several of the items she has purchased from us, and she was excited when I told her about this blog and our Facebook page... A real person... buying our stuff for her real home!

Last weekend, on the annual McKinney Home Tour, we experienced something we never dreamed of... We got to see some of our merchandise displayed in some real homes. That was crazy!  Not what we expected!

We met Anna of Craft Away Studios in her gorgeous new home.  She had one of our burlap banners hung in her kitchen window... and one of Mr. 58's mini chalkboards over her fridge.  We were able to introduce ourselves and tell her thank you for shopping Booth 58.  It was a joy to get to chat with her for a bit about her unique crafting business.  Another homeowner had one of our silver chalkboards displayed in her kitchen cabinets.  It looked great.

From Booth 58 to its new home... in Anna's spectacular kitchen...
I would rather live over Anna's sink too!
This whole Booth 58 journey has been so much fun.... God has truly blessed us around every corner.  On a whim, we jumped into this world and have been delighted more and more as we get deeper in.  When we get to see the real people that are loving our stuff... and then see it in their real homes, it makes it even more fun for us.  It is wonderful to know that things that make us smile bring other people joy too!
Big Thanks to all of you "Real" Customers that make this so much fun!

Monday at the Mall

Sister and I spent a bit of time this warm afternoon at Antique Company Mall .... fluffin' a bit.  We both wore our flip flops, turned the a/c way down, and enjoyed the sunshine... We do wish it felt a little more like Christmas though.

At Booth 58 we are trying to help you feel the season too.... We added 3 sleds, lots more ice skates, and our first set of snow shoes last week!  Wishful thinking... right?

We "shook things up" Wednesday afternoon and "flipped" the booth.  Mr. 58 did some babysitting during Little Mr. 58's naptime, so that we could get a lot of work done... Thanks Dad!

Still lots of silver... and we added more from our most recent junkin' trip last week.

Sister found the perfect little flocked deer in Nancy's booth.  They were pink!
Happy Monday... Even though it doesn't feel a lot like Christmas, it is in our hearts... So...
Crank up the Christmas music and the a/c, Friends.  This is Texas!
