I have an ambitious plan for a bold new antique store booth revamp, but my latest temporary solution is working nicely until my new sign is complete. Like the last sign it didn't cost one cent, I used what I had around the house to craft a new look.
First I removed the letters from my old sign, then added hooks to the back of it so I could hand the letters however I want on the wall and rearrange them when desired.
Then I painted the back of the old sign with one layer of chalkboard paint so I could use it to write messages to shoppers and further connect my online and offline branding.
I spent six hours one day arranging and rearranging to fit in as much merchandise as possible and hanging new signage. I'm not completely satisfied yet, but I like how it makes me stand out from the other booths.
I've made some interesting connections with local designers, bloggers, resellers, and vintage buyers in just a couple of days lingering at the booth and trying to perfect the display. I'll admit there have been times I've wanted to give up keeping up and pursuing brick and mortar spaces and keep my brand online, but making that local connection takes it another level. I'm hoping to move up to a larger space at Southern Crossing really soon; can't wait!
