I'm moved in, but not settled!

But that's a good thing.  I moved and got set up in my new home at Encore Resales, then I had to restock, then I expanded, now I need to restock again.  Of course in this kind of business one can never be settled, things always need to be moving and changing.  Maybe that's why I like it so much, I get to merchandise, stage, fluff, and arrange on a regular basis.  Plus I LOVE the hunt.

Today I'm showing my booth and over the next few days I'll show you several other booths at Encore.  You can also go to their website and see what's new and what has sold.

Okay, here we go, I must warn you there are lots of pictures!

Boy do I need a picture hanging next to that column!  Funny how spaces look different in photos.
 There are no walls in the area of the store I'm in so Mr. EA and I created a back wall by attaching shutters to a china cabinet with metal braces.  I'm not selling the cabinet because it's in really bad shape but it works great for display and to anchor the shutters.  I took the door off and plan to take the side glass panels out also. I can also store supplies I need in the lower half.  This also created a wall for the person next to me.

I wanted to show you a close up of the trumpet on the luggage cart.  It has U.S.O. M.C. engraved on it!  It was used by the Marine Corp USO and was made in 1913! It's not in the best of shape and I'm not sure if it can be restored but it makes a great display piece. 

Need a French style side table?

As you can see my taste ranges from rustic, to shabby chic to a little more refined.

I like mantiques but I also love the more feminine things.

I like to tell a story or set a scene when I create vignettes. 
Of course I might be the only one that gets it! ;-)

This dining table is a drop leaf and has an extra leaf along with six chairs.  I really like the French style lines.  The chairs need reupholstering and the whole set could probably use a paint job. 
So I priced it with all that in mind.

One more picture!  Here's a glimpse at the beginning of my Easter/Spring decor.  Don't you love this handmade wheel barrow?  Boy my taste really does run the gamut!
I'll be adding eggs to this and other springy touches around Elizabeth Ann's very soon.

Hope to see you in Encore sometime soon!

P.S. Don't forget your 20% off coupon!  You'll find it on my sidebar.


  1. Your space looks fantastic .... I love that wood wheelbarrow!! If I lived by you, I would make it mine!!

  2.'s the truth. You have the most fabulous, bestest ever booth at Encore. I was in awe of your display abilities...and so many pretties! They should seriously put you on staff (or discount your rent)and have you fluff some of the other areas. are that good. So many things I wanted...but I had to come home and think on them. I don't have alot of space so it's hard to chose. I hope to use the coupon and make a purchase soon. I know you will be sorely missed at C.I. but glad you are not far away.

  3. I am still trying to get over to Pelham to see your new booth...The pics are great. Visit me...The Cranky Queen

  4. I MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love your set up and I am so excited for you. Your taste and your style is amazing and I can't wait to see where the talent God gave you takes you.
