Oh! The places you’ll go…. to the Shop!

Books ETC is now selling out of a “shop”!  The Lazy Daisy in Chester is my new selling location.  The owner rents booths, but my booth is a tiny L shaped room with 6 walls!

This little room has so much personality – there is 4 inch baseboard, chair rail & a window!  D-I-L, daughter-in-law, Heather helped plan & execute the space.  We hung chicken wire on three of the walls, old book page wall paper on another wall, made by D-I-L, and we topped off the room with old book page crown molding. (you understand what I mean, I hope.)

Shutters from my parents’ house were hung for use as the shelves, and the nail holes now in the 6 walls are innumerable!

I painted an old table to create an additional flat space for display.

A paper globe light hangs in one corner; this is made from a gift of piano teacher music books from the 1950s.  Colorful and interesting.

There is a place for Giggle, Pot Luck, and other embellished words.  The novelty of my inventory has generated many sales. Hoping  this continues.
