Morning Glory's at Key City Antiques and Shops

Hello and Good Day!  It is absolutely beautiful here, a perfect Fall day.  Hope it's gorgeous where you are and you're able to get out and enjoy it.  Fall is my favorite season and I'm a little (a lot) behind in getting decorated for it, but I plan to Fall-ify my house this weekend.  I love to sit on my porch in the crisp air and sip hot chocolate while the pups play in the leaves.  Another favorite Fall thing I love to do is drive through the mountains and check out the glorious colors.  The Hub and I usually do this for our anniversary on the 15th.  Romantic and awe inspiring!  What are your favorite Fall activities?

Now, as I mentioned in my last post, my friend and I have opened a booth at an antique mall in North Wilkesboro, NC.  Together we call ourselves Morning Glory's.  We have some antiques, but mostly upcycled and repurposed vintage-inspired items.  Really cute stuff!  The mall is in an old furniture factory and the place is so unique and awesome - we're really happy to be a part of it. The "soft opening" was this past Wednesday, but a grand opening will be held very soon. It's now open to the public Mon - Sat 10am to 7pm and Sun 1 to 6pm. In addition to all of the amazing booths that are open daily for shopping, they'll have wine tastings and music events, artisan showcases, and eventually some furniture painting classes. I took some shots of our booth and am so excited to show them off...

We still have some "tweaking" to do to get it just perfect, but for now we like it.  I'm sure the space will evolve as we sell certain pieces and smaller items and as we determine which things are good sellers and which ones are not.  Being our first booth, it will be trial and error for us for a while.  One thing we do have to take care of ASAP is that ugly yellow natural gas pipe that was installed after we chose this booth.  We've been told we can cover it with paper or white duct tape, but we can't paint it.  It really sticks out and we hate it.  We'll make the best of it and try to make it blend in a little better.  So, what do y'all think?  Let me know in the comments - we're open to any and all suggestions!  Oh, and of course, if you're in the neighborhood stop by and visit our booth.  Key City Antique Mall and Shops - 502 Main Street, North Wilkesboro, NC. - a great place to stop and stretch your legs on your way to the mountains to see the Fall leaves!
