First Month in Bizzz

It's funny what sells_ not always what I think. I had a 6"high chicken, covered with tiny shells. I am not sure why I bought it, but I obviously did. As I was pricing items for my shop, I picked it up and said to my sister, "I don't think I'll even price this. Who would want it??" What do you think the very first thing that I sold in my shop was??? Yes, the 6 inch shelled chicken. . . . . .

My fourth week in business.  I am having fun! Sold a lot, had to go shopping.

New things.

Love the vintage Schiaparelli hatbox.

Great Regency table.

Interesting vintage .

Sold lots of antlers. Found a jackpot of antlers.
I'm selling loads of pearls!

My almost-21 yr old son would salivate over this lamp in his frat house! Would make a great 21st bday gift.

My sister is getting cozy with the help.

Fabulous flowers from wonderful friends in Omaha. Thank you!

Thank you MJ! The mini cupcakes with pearls were a big hit!

Thank you Julie! Can't wait to see you on Monday.

Sarah and Neal, I cried when this wonderful orchid was delivered!

Feeling about 12 in my little dress.

Ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce. Those are BIG scissors.

It really was a great night! Lots of people, lots of sales, music, wine, cupcakes. . . .

A Few Days Away!

My sister, Tish and I are working nonstop to get the shop ready for Friday, the grand opening. She is a slave driver, but I don't know what I would have done without her. There is SOOO much to do!! So here's a few pics. I am not there yet, still kinda messy and boxes around and not totally foofed. . . .
xxxx Wish me luck!
