Hello! If you are new around here, you probably aren’t aware that I recently obtained a booth at Stone Soup Antiques Gallery in Ballston Spa, New York. While I had an online shop and I was doing shows, I felt that I needed a more permanent presence year-round. With the online shop, shipping costs really limit the items that I can list for sale. While doing shows a couple times per year was great and successful they were too far apart.
So, I decided to take the plunge and get a booth at a reputable antique store in a nearby town. Stone Soup Antiques has been around for about 13 years. It is a group shop comprised of different dealers, whom have different styles and wares for sale. In my opinion, it is one of the best and most curated antique stores in the New York Capitol Region. They are located at 19 Low Street, Ballston Spa. Sky Lark House is located on the second floor on the left handmade of the building.
I moved into my booth one week before the big Holiday Open House. I didn’t get a chance to stock my booth with as much inventory as I wanted but I was pretty content with the inventory I could add given the time I had.
The purpose of this post is to give you a sneak peek of my updated booth, which is located on the second floor. Lighting was a bit of a challenge so the photos aren’t the best but they will give you a good idea.
You will see that there is a variety of ironstone and architectural salvage pieces as well. The cupboard shown here was an amazing find. It was in the same family for four generations and was built by hand. Originally, it was used in the kitchen of a farmhouse primarily to store food. See those shelves? They are all adjustable.
I also added some of my antique French linens. You can see them peeking out from under the table. You can see more French linens hanging up in the photos below as well as more ironstone.
Finally, here is a closer view of some of the architectural salvage pieces.
I love the chippy character they have. You might also recognize the little mustard color washstand in this photo.
Finally, here is photo showing a really cute enamel top table, which is such a generous size, and some of the Christmas items I have on it.
If you have a chance, definitely stop by Stone Soup for a visit. We would love to see you and while you are there you can meet some of the dealers who have booths in the gallery. Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I hope you found some inspiration.
