Summer Booth Updates 2018

Today I'm sharing some of the updates we've made to our Panoply booth spaces in the antique mall since my last post of our booths in March. Instead of making before and after comparisons, I'll leave the link for you to see how things looked previously and just focus on current vignettes.

For summer, we generally like to showcase a few themes: garden/kitchen, outdoor living, and patriotism/Americana. Below is the corner of garden/kitchen and outdoor living.
With a nod to days of porch sittin' and tending crops, we've brought in several new vintage items.

Small planter containers and other garden finds are just as fine today as they were in yesteryear.
Kitchen and picnic items featured.....
Another utility table that could just as easily be used indoors as a protected outdoor setting.
Crates and hardware are popular with guys and gals.
Our patriotic corner....
The photo below shows a long view of all the space detail shown so far. It is all space rented by my sisters and me, just divided with separate vignettes.
The other space we rent has not changed a whole lot since March. We've simply shuffled items from the other spaces and added a few more. One way we manage that is to continuously go vertically in displays. It's hard to see in the photo below, but just to the left of the linen rack, there is a chair stacked upon a coffee table. That's just one example of what I mean by going vertical.
Below is another angle of the same space. Not only can you see the vertical display concept, but just across the aisle (on the far right) you catch a glimpse of  the edge of the patriotic corner of our other rented space.
Panoply is located in the South Charleston Antique Mall at 617 D Street, South Charleston, WV.  It is an easy on/off from I-64 at Exit 56. If you're traveling this summer, we hope you'll stop in and browse/shop. We are just three dealers among approximately 70, situated on the first of three floors (and a mezzanine) in an 18,000 square foot former department store.

As always, your virtual visit is appreciated!
