My Antique Booth Update

I have been really busy with the antique booths at Antiques et Cetera in Benton, Kentucky the past few months.  Yes, I said booths!  What started out as one booth a little over a year ago has blossomed into three separate booths.  Want to take a look?

This is the original booth.  2 weeks after we took this booth the small booth next to it opened up, so we combined them into one larger booth.  We built 4 sets of shelves backed with burlap, hung a banner and made money every month after the first month...











The second booth we opened was our "Mantiques" booth.  This one is more geared towards guy stuff and it's been doing really well.

Albums are a big hit as is bar ware...


Books, magazines and camping equipment...



Tools...



And lots of fishing equipment...



And then we got a third booth.  This one has more furniture in it, kitchen ware, beachy stuff, kids items and a Christmas section...






We have a lot of inventory across the 3 booths.  Furniture has been a slow mover in this area, which disappoints me to no end.  We really like finding and redoing furniture and I was hoping it would sell better.  So far we've sold more furniture out of our garage, so I may be rethinking the marketing of the furniture.  Any suggestions?

In the meantime, if you're in the western Kentucky area, visit us at Antiques et Cetera on Main street in Benton.

  2. It seems such a short time ago that this was only a dream, and look how you've grown already! Amazing! The only thing I can think of with the furniture, which is beautiful, is that many shoppers might be just passing through while traveling, and not have space to take larger items with them. I hopeI will get there to see it, but I'll be in that same sad situation, traveling through with a packed car, lol.

  4. Hi Kim! Wow, time does fly. I didn't realize you had moved. You probably have a little milder winters in Kentucky. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
