Metis Booth Style

On Sunday, our first sales day, all the finery was on parade~

We were honored to have several distinguished visitors...Brooke & Steve Giannetti came by early in the morning; we thank Brooke for her purchases and her mention on Velvet & Linen today~
Bev from the Willows also came by and will show our merchandise in her lovely store in Phoenix~ here she is holding the harvest basket from Champagne, full of rolled linens~
Brooke & Steve had the best shot of the booth in their post today, so be sure to check their post HERE if you don't follow Brooke already; Andrea was very into the detailed shots; but here is a wider view~

The vintage men's shirts & a vintage apron were hung on the walls, which were enclosed in washed drop cloths on three sides~
The religious medals were displayed on the pillows Laura designed, the display was a brilliant Laura idea; an example of the partnership; this was a fantastic idea to show the merch this way~
The rosaries and brooches and crosses and other pieces on a second pillow.....
The tables were skirted in metis sheets and burlap, Andrea's norm~
The showstopper was the floor, a painted drop cloth that Laura will show you shortly; another great partnership; Andrea had the concept, colors decided jointly, and Laura executed it to perfection; here she is, proudly in the booth~

People came by all day and said "This is different!" Read: you didn't throw a blanket on the pavement and pile your goods on top. We took pride in our booth, and considered it a creative exercise; the floor was fantastic!!

You both, together, have put together a wonderful space. Wish I could have been there and I can't wait to see Laura's "how to" on that floor! Tres Manifique! (Sorry haven't taken French since junior high - hope that was right)

Mr. Decor thinks that someone might like a black and white version for her Farmer's Market booth. :)

Love this floor! What a grand idea... Years ago I saw a booth utilizing a similar idea, but they used the backside of a piece of carpet. WOW.... Loved that idea.


Warm blessings,
