Spreading My Wings
I’ve been spreading my wings this week, my antique wings, that is!
My favorite thing to do in the entire world, is to go antiquing! Since I was a child, I’ve had a passion for finding treasure, which is what lead me to open my antiques business years ago.
For quite awhile I’ve wanted to expand my online antiques business by opening a small booth somewhere. I’m always finding fabulous pieces of furniture, swoon worthy statues, and heart stopping french chairs. But many times they are just too large, heavy, or bulky to ship in my online store.
I wanted a space that I could sell those gorgeous pieces that I’ve previously had to pass up, but finding the right place was important to me.
The ideal shop would not only be aesthetically beautiful, but would also carry unique products from highly curated vendors.
I found such a place at Antiques at the Loop in Mobile, AL.
Antiques at the Loop is a gorgeous store with a wide variety of beautiful items and distinctive collections.
I was so excited when I was accepted as a vendor in this delightful and charming store!
We moved a lot of items into our space on Tuesday, and then returned the next day to finish arranging pieces and hanging mirrors.
When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see that many pieces had already sold!
As we were shifting things around to fill in some of the holes, the store owner offered us the opportunity to move to a different space that I felt was a better location. So we ended up moving the entire booth!
Here are a few pictures of the new space.
I’m still rearranging and tweaking, and I have more things to bring in.
There’s still a lot of blank spaces on the walls that I need to fill, but it’s finally all coming together!
I’ve had an online antiques shop for nine years and have loved every minute of it!
If you are one my customers, don’t worry, my online presence isn’t going anywhere. We have some plans in the works to actually grow our online business this year!
But if you’re ever in the Mobile, AL area, I hope you will have an opportunity to stop by Antiques at the Loop and see this beautiful store, and visit the E&E booth!
Who knows, maybe I will see you there!
If you see anything you like in the photos, you can call Antiques at the Loop at 251-476-0309, tell them what you’re interested in, and that it’s in the Edith & Evelyn booth. They will take care of you, and they can arrange shipping as well!
Today is French Country Friday!
I hope you will stick around and visit my friend’s homes to see what they are sharing this week!
