Fall Booth ReSet

This post shares the fall booth reset that was done at Stone Soup Antiques and highlights some of the more unique pieces.

In my world, September marks the beginning of fall. In the northeast, fall only lasts for about 8 weeks – September and October. By November, the leaves are gone and the daily temperature is dropping fast. Two weeks into November, many people are already starting to think about snow and the holidays.

So with that in mind, I decided to do a little booth reset for the fall season. If you read my post on 5 affordable ways to decorate for fall, then you know I am not a fan of the colors yellow, orange or red. When it comes to fall, I have to find other ways to embrace the season without incorporating those colors. Here is a quick summary of some of the fall inventory I put into the booth.

Fall Booth ReSet

Brown Transferware

Brown Transferware platters

If you have been reading this blog for more than a minute, you know that I personally love brown transferware. I use it in my own home and I sell it. Autumn is the perfect time to bring out the brown transferware pieces since they can be used to decorate homes and Thanksgiving table.

Antique Ironstone

Truth be told, antique ironstone can be used year round. However, it always plays well with other decor items and never goes out of the style. As a result, with this fall booth reset, I added a few more pieces of all white ironstone.

Ironstone Pitcher

This kitchen pantry from the 1920s-1930s holds a collection of large ironstone pitchers.

Smaller ironstone pieces

While this little cupboard holds some of the smaller ironstone pieces including sugar jars, serving dishes and platters.

Unique Furniture

As part of the reset, I also wanted to highlight some of the unique furniture pieces in the booth.

This beautiful antique pine table from England is one of my favorite finds.

This summer, I finally brought the reupholstered Victorian sofa into the booth.

You can read about the reupholstery process, part 1HERE, part 2 HERE and part 3 HERE.

You can see the Before photo HERE. I put the faux fur rug on the sofa to protect the cushions. This allows people to sit on the sofa and test it out for comfort while keeping the cushions clean.

As you can tell, I am not a big fan of the usual fall colors – red, orange and yellow. Instead I use dried grasses, wood tones, and pale colored pumpkis. In the next few weeks, I will bring in some pale colored pumpkins since they are not yet available at the produce stands.

Summary

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. It’s crazy to think that fall is already here! It’s such a fleeting season here in the Northeast where winter generally takes 6 months of the year. I am trying to make a conscious effort to be outside and enjoy the sunlight, warmth and foliage. Of course, holding a hot cup of apple cider always helps to put me in the mood for autumn.

  2. I seriously don’t know how you let some of these pieces go, Anna! They are all just gorgeous and I know they’re going to make all your customers happy. I would be shopping there every day if I lived closer. Hugs, CoCo

    1. Hi CoCo – One of my secrets to letting stuff go is that Mr. SLH really likes a clean and orderly basement.🙃

  3. Hi Anna! This year I’m leaning toward using more neutrals in my fall decor! You have added so many fabulous treasures to your shop, I wish I lived close to you so I could see them in person! You have so many of my favorite things, and you styled them beautifully! Take care, Donna

  4. Oh wow, Anna! Your booth is full of beauties. Like everyone else says, how do you let it all go? I’d be hoarding it all, lol. Good thing I do not live near you or I would be broke. I love using brown transfer ware and organics this time of year and you have some beautiful pieces. Yikes. I’m actually doing a brown transfer ware post for the thrifted goodies post this month and I would love to have some of your pieces. I’m with you- I like the muted, neutral colors best.
