Exciting News!

Hi friends! How was your weekend? Ours was only slightly productive as my husband and I spent most of ours recuperating from the cold/flu that hit us pretty hard last week. The days we started to feel better were spent getting ready for something really exciting I'm going to share with you today.

Last Sunday, my bloggy friend, Dee, from My Painted Stuff sent me an email asking if I had seen the ad in our local paper about a new antique mall opening up on March 1. I hadn't so I dug through my recycle bin, found the paper and checked it out.

The antique mall opening up is 10,000 sq. ft. of open space that will house about 150 antique vendors. There's an additional 40,000 sq. ft. in the back of the building that will be used for local vendors who can rent space by the day.

Why am I telling you all this? Because Shabby Love is now the proud owner of an 8 x 8 space!!!!!!!!!! After months of dreaming and planning I finally have an antique booth of my very own!! And it's all thanks to Dee. If it wasn't for her email, I never would have known about it.

Here's my little 8 x 8 space marked off with tape. I'll be sure to take pictures after I get it all set up this week.

 When you walk in the front doors, my booth is the front corner booth on the right, right next to the check out counter. So, it's an excellent location!

Here's a shot of the rest of the building so you can get an idea of how huge this place is!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:
