All That Jazz!!!

FINALLY! I got my act together and am ready to show you our jazzy
new booth! The reason it took so long... camera issues. I just can not get
my camera to take good indoor pictures and the flash was being weird.
So if you see any pictures that are dark and grainy, you know why.

My Mom and I.
Yes, we wore aprons, we thought they were jazzy!

My Mom (A Cowgirl's Grace) and my Auntie (Dusty Devoe)
business partners in crime, twins divine.

Now lets get jazzy, shall we.

Let's start at the VERY beginning.
This is what the booth looked like BEFORE we got our mitts on it.

The booth, all cleaned out and ready for us to slap some paint on it.
I did most of the slapping, the TWINS went down the street to find
some mochas. They brought me a hot cocoa though so all was forgiven.
I actually like to paint anyway and their bones are a bit creakier than
mine so I figured I could more easily do the bending and twisting
to paint amongst the low shelving. Hee Hee!
We whipped it out in about 45 minutes.

Post paint.
Pre Merchandise.

It always looks WORSE before it gets better! It took 4 of us nearly 45
minutes to haul everything up here. For a moment we were
overwhelmed and had NO idea where to start.

Thanks Dad and Uncle Cowboy for your help with the unloading,
even though Uncle Cowboy's bad knees put him in a purely
supervisory roll. Kicked back and relaxing on a park bench soaking
up the sun as we marched back and forth and back and forth.

Just kiddin' Uncle Cowboy! You've been a big help doing
extra little things we needed done. Make sure Auntie cuts you in
on her share of the profits.

Now just to recap... before

and after.

All That Jazz!

We couldn't believe how much STUFF we actually had once we
started unpacking everything. We were worried we wouldn't have
room but we made it work.

Yep, the Bloggers in us coming out. I told you we were geeks.
Rock on Bloggers!

See the tray in the top right corner? I got this idea from Marsha of
Sassy Mini Dolls. The shop owner actually bought it for herself and
hung it behind her desk!

Meet Fifi. Our mascot. She's a rough and tough cowgirl who will kick
the crud out of anyone that tries to steal our merchandise. Seriously,
she's been highly trained. I wouldn't mess with her, she's already given
me the evil eye once.

BOO! It's me sneakin' up on you.

I hope you enjoyed your tour. We're thrilled to finally be done and

rather proud of ourselves for accomplishing such a big thing. It was
less than 2 months from the time we decided to do this until the time
it became a reality. We're excited to see where it takes us!

Thank you for all your support, encouragement, kind words and advice.
It has been so much fun to share All That Jazz With with you!

Ahhhhh! It looks fab. I blew the photos up so I could really study them. What a great job you all did. And the twins? Well they look so much alike are they identical?

I hope that you are having fun!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Sares Sweetie...
I love your booth. Gosh I wish I could come shopping. If all your blogger friends came by your booth would be empty in no time at all, and you would be back out there searching again. I love your mascot sweetie. She is in the "Pink" for sure. You could use her for your pink post, and introduce your beautiful booth again. So precious.

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for the kind words about our sweet Angel. We are going to miss her. She was family.

Good luck again on this wonderful adventure. I love the pictures of you Sares. Your hair is absolutely stunning, and you have the face of an Angel.

Have a beautiful Wednesday sweetie. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Sares~This was truly a labor of love. You are soo "adorable". I always like when I can see the friends I visit.
All your activities reminds me of what we go through in transporting and setting up for the holiday Bazaar we particulate in.
I would love to spend some shopping time and money in your booth.
