With the clock ticking down to d-day, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather yesterday to set up the tent and configure our layout.  We wanted to see just how much, or little, we would be able to effectively stuff into our space and still allow movement through the space.

Fortunately Karen owns a nice white 10 x 10 tent.

Karen and hubby setting up the tent.  Glad I designated myself the “official” photographer for this part.

The tent has sides which will help if it rains, however, the extended forecast is for mid 70’s and no rain. Whew!  Keep your fingers crossed.

First couple pieces of furniture and our sign in place.  That wasn’t too bad.

The hardest part was deciding what should be put out the first day.  We thought about size, colors, style and stacking ability for height.  We need to get as much in and still have our booth looking appealing and inviting.  I don’t believe we have the option of restocking during the day.

Where should this go?

Mom flew in on Tuesday to help with the show.  We put her to work as soon as her plane landed.  Here she is making hang tags.

We fit more than I expected.  Several neighbors stopped by and were awed & amazed at what we have collected – hopefully the Luckett’s shoppers will be too!

Seven hours later it’s all tagged and tucked away.

On Friday afternoon we will be setting up our space at Luckett’s.  Hopefully today’s exercise will make that go a lot smoother and easier.

Thank you for joining us on our journey.  Five days to Luckett’s.

Next post will be a few more pieces of furniture.
