Charity Horse Show Booth, 2011

As some may recall I am renting a stall for the day at the Charity horse show this weekend, and setting up a 'shop' of my 'stuff'.

To that end I have been frantically working the last 2 days to finish things up and get them labeled and packed.

Here are some highlights:

^used the Arrow Stapler on this!

I found a swatch of fabric that fit the seat and just quickly upholstered the one chair.  I figure it gives me a seat to sit on, and maybe I'll sell the set.   Will sell the set with upholstery in buyers choice of fabrics [Fabric extra].

Here they are before:

This dog bed w/bedding
^used the Arrow Stapler on this!

It was previously the bottom of a dresser that had no drawer

This dog/doll crib w/bedding

I looked like this when I got it

It was a shame to paint it but it was rusty and not in good shape.

This Doll/dog bed

^used the Arrow Stapler on this!

Formerly looked like this

The second one of these and the dresser that goes with it I am saving to pretty up for my neighbors daughter who just got her first American Girl Doll

Canister set

Chicken wire and Waverly Memo Board
featuring stories about the rescue and the horses they've helped

^used the Arrow Stapler on this!

And other bibs and bobs

These are each getting Fall Floral in them

I need one large piece to sell and display many of these items, so I think I am cleaning out the Hutch in the kitchen and dragging that along

I have several small tables to take as well,

It's going to be a fun day with lots of friends who we see only a few times a year, good food, and horses!
Lets hope we raise a bundle of money for the rescue too!

Update, I only sold the one dog bed, and for half of what I normally charge... I dunno what I did wrong and would love input from more seasoned sellers.

I linked up to show-and-tell-friday

Wow, you have some lovely pieces to carry. I love them all. But, the doggie bed caught my eye! Wish I was near, I could use it for my babies. Hope you have a good day! Love Loretta
