Farmers market season has arrived and that means no rest for the weary in this house. I have been busy making earrings, sewing headbands, and designing my new booth.
As hard as it may be try to look past the wrinkled table clothe...the white one is actually a twin bed sheet that I got on clearance for three bones.
I wanted something catchy for the headbands to sit on. However, there was a dilemma. I didn't want to spend lots of money for a stand, and I didn't want anything that would be super bulky, because this chick has to haul around all her crap in the Suby while also carrying around the Punk.
I decided to make my own headband stands. I took candlestick holders and glued them to plastic square plates.
For the necklaces I took an old rake and cut it off about a foot-and-a-half down the handle. I then screwed the handle to board to make it into a stand.
I am also planning on using two more rakes so I can have the necklaces spread out across the back of the table.
The picture above is of sister #2, she looks so stoic and sophisticated....don't be deceived though, the picture I snapped right after this one she was sticking her finger up her nose. ewwwwwww.
The picture is clipped to an old frame that I given the good ole' primer and spray paint treatment. I then stapled chicken wire to the frame and used clothes pin to hold the picture in place.
As some added flare to the booth, Sister #3 found an old kiddo typewriter that I use to elevate the discounted items--the typewriter also attracts a lot of kids. all. the. time. tink. tink. tink. tink. click. click. click. zinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggg.....
Finally, I used old pie tins to display the rings and hair clips, and my Momo found an old school wooden jewelry stand to display the earrings.
As you can tell we are big connoisseurs of finding random junk and then repurposing it....hence, Spunky Junky.
Over the next week I will be showcasing tutorials on how I made each of my displays!
Hope ya'll are having a great weekend and thanks for stopping in!
