Elizabeth Ann's New Home in Consigning Interiors

This move was like staying in a neighborhood you love but just moving to a larger house.
As you can see this new home has lots of wall space and I have electricity! I have a sign in the works that will go high up on the back wall, which is great because it is seen immediately upon walking in the store.  The blue wall color was already there and is actually a pretty color so I decided to live with it.

I love this small black shell back chair. 

This dressing mirror is one of my favorite pieces in my booth.  Wouldn't it be great in an entry or foyer?  It actually belongs to the owners of the store.  I wanted it in my booth because of the mirror and the shelves. 
Wish I could find a place at home for it! (I'm still trying to figure it out!)
LOVE this wine bottle in a basket.  I assure you it is no where near the price of the ones at Pottery Barn.  

Any golfers out there?

 This is a corner desk and matching chair!  It needs some love, so I have it priced at a "you fix it up" price. 
If I get around to doing it I'll have to increase the price a little bit.   

It's kind of hard to tell but that is a HUGE Chianti bottle.  Everyone at the auction thought it was funny that I wanted that out of the lot that we were bidding on.  I think it was a display piece, because it is still sealed, sorry nothing inside, and it doesn't have the state tax stickers on it. 

I should have gotten a better picture of this mahogany drop leaf table.  It has three leaves and a center leg; at its fullest extension it is six feet long.  It is made by a well known furniture manufacturer that totally escapes me right now.  (What's that stuff you can take to help with your memory?)

Well there you have it, thanks so much for coming along on the tour.  I still have plans for my new home, but somehow my plans and actions don't always seem to go together.  :-)  But I'm working on that too!

I know, I know, it's been almost a MONTH!

In my last post...almost a MONTH ago...I mentioned that Elizabeth Ann's has a second home. 

It is in a shop called ELIZABETH'S!  The owner's name is Elizabeth and there is another Elizabeth with a booth...LOVE it!  Elizabeth's is located at 4208 Dolly Ridge Road, Cahaba Heights, AL.  
Cahaba Heights, which is located behind the Summit, is a neighborhood of Vestavia Hills, with some cute shops and restaurants.  Right next door to Elizabeth's is a fruit market, they have some beautiful mums and pumpkins right now.  There's a great nursery/plant store called Leaf n Petal.  When I passed it Thursday they were getting in mums, what looked like boxwood topiaries and other beauties.  Also the Lamb's Ear is a must see and if you like Mediterranean food you have to try The Olive Branch...YUMMY! 
If you go tell Jennifer, my beautiful niece,  Aunt Elizabeth sent you!

I'm moved in but still learning what will fit and how much will fit, plus I have to get some more light in there. 
Because Elizabeth's is located in an old house this space is a little awkward so it will tax my creativity, but that's what makes this so much FUN!  It is also very difficult to photograph.  I can't get a full view of the booth all at once.

The longest wall has wires and pipes on it in several places so I decided to cover it with a drop cloth.   

Boy do I need to add more to that shelf!

I can still hang stuff on the walls I just have to be very CAREFUL where I'm putting the nails!

You know I can't have an empty jar!

I have lots more goodies to add now that I know more will fit than I thought, woo hoo!
Tomorrow I'll post pictures of Elizabeth Ann's new home in Consigning Interiors and Antiques.
