A Jazzy Christmas!

Jazz is all decked out for the holidays! We had a slight hitch in our giddy~up. Or should I say a major hitch. Due to unseemly weather, you know, the freezing snowing icy icky messiness we had last week? Yep, THAT nastiness put a crimp in our plans. Michelle's travel plans had to make some adjustments due to the road conditions and by the time she got here we only had a little over an hour to work on things. I know. How in the cotton pickin' world are you supposed to completely transform your booth in an hour. You don't.

Since the following day was Thanksgiving and the shop was closed, it was left to me and me ALONE to get the job done on Friday. Everyone else had prior commitments. The down side~it was slightly lonely without anyone to work with. The upside~I got to do whatever I wanted!

The little tree has all the little ornaments Michelle made on it. If you were eying those boots from a previous post, you're too late, they're gone already!

We love this little white shabby table that sits atop the bigger table. It works great for display purposes. Today I got the dreaded, yet highly anticipated call~the little white shabby table has sold. 
And your stuff is all over the place and needs fixed.

Man that's a call I love and hate at the same time.

Especially when you've just spent hours designing a vignette around it.

Now if the BIG table under all this stuff sells, we're in BIG trouble. 
We may have to display stuff on the floor.
That could be attractive.

There's me. Where oh where are you Michelle?  Mom?  Auntie?  Nana...Anyone?

Just kidding! My Mom actually took this picture on Sunday. She and I worked in the shop for a few hours to help get a commission discount. Every bit helps and it's fun for a few hours to play shopkeeper.

The only downside to running the shop? During the downtime you have time to shop in the other booths. Now strictly speaking, I actually only took one thing from our own booth so it doesn't really count. No Michelle, it wasn't something or yours! However dear old Mom spent a good chunk of change. She's dangerous that way. She's also Michelle's best repeat customer.

Most of this spectacular merchandise will still be there on Saturday. We're having a Christmas Open House/Sale on December 4th from 3-7. Everything in Painted Lady Vintage will be on sale, from 10% off all the way up to 50%. I do hope some of you can make it, we would love to meet you and have you join us!

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and are ready to get all geared up for the 
Christmas season, I know I am!

Have a great week~Tara
