Future Antique Mall Space - A New Chapter for the Little Vintage Cottage

I don't have a Treasure Trove Tuesday post to share today... not because I don't have any treasures to share... but because I'm in semi-panic mode! If you follow me on Facebook then you probably already know that I just got approved for a space in one of my local antique stores! It's called the Uptown Antique Mall. It's been around quite a long time and is a pretty popular place... I've been on the waiting list for almost a year!

So why am I panicking? Well... because I move in on the 28th of THIS month! Eeek! I've been scrounging around trying to come up with some ways to display things... shelving and such.

Here are a few pictures of the space now... this is the other vendor's stuff.
my future antique mall space
I'm planning on painting it a creamy white to better reflect what little overhead lighting there is.

I'm right on a corner so I only have the 2 walls in an L-shape. It's a smaller space to start. I didn't know if I could handle a regular size booth since I work full time and already have several Etsy shops to manage so this smaller one feels right to me.
You can see down the aisle a little bit in this picture. The unfinished door behind the white frame is a permanent fixture that belongs to the mall owners but she said I could paint it too.

I'm going to hang a light of some sort from that cross-bar up in the corner and I think a pretty rug to further define my space would be nice.

I've been obsessing in my head about how I can decorate it and display things, I'm so excited! Today I painted an old bookcase that used to be in my craft studio. It's been sitting in the garage not doing anything and I need shelves so I pulled it out and gave it a makeover. I also made some large wall-hanging arrows out of some old fence boards along with several other things.

Wish me luck! I'll be excited to share it when I'm all moved in.
