August at All That Jazz

I took a couple new pieces into the space last weekend!

This nightstand/dresser was a piece my Mom had and it got a makeover with AS Chalk Paint in the Duck Egg Blue color. It's a pretty little piece with a lot of character.

The little round end table on the right is the second piece I took in. I forgot to get a good picture. I hate it when that happens!  It was originally and ugly shade of green with brown undertones. I painted it the same color as the previous piece, the Duck Egg Blue, then stenciled a fleur de lis pattern on all 3 shelves. It really made the piece pop and it looks oh so much better.

There are more changes than just the new furniture. My Nana has left Jazz. She wasn't making enough sales to make it worth keeping her spot. Michelle has also "officially" left but her stuff remains behind. A hectic Summer has prevented her from packing it all up but we're thinking by the end of the month she'll be able to get it all boxed up. Then I'm REALLY on my own.  The twins (my Mom and Michelle's Mom) will still be my partners but truth be told I do 95% of the work. It's basically MY addiction. I just drag them along for the ride most of the time!

Also on the new changes front, the shop we have All That Jazz in has sold. The owners have moved on to a new opportunity within the space of a month and a half  and we now have a new owner. Our previous owners will be greatly missed, they are wonderful people and were a tremendous help to us as new vendors but I am also excited about the new direction I think our shop may be taking!

I'll keep you updated. I have new stuff stacked up in the shed at home and have been working on some new projects. I've just been waiting for Michelle's things to fly the coop to make room. I think September will be a great time to make a fresh start.  Happy Sunday and have a wonderful week!

Saras what a wonderful little shop you have. Beautiful little finds and treasures I see.
What a fun way to have treasures and make some money at the same time.
What a joy that would be.
Sprucing them up as well.

I loved seeing all the new things you have in the shop. You have done wonders with the paintwork on the furniture.
Best of luck with going out on your own, sounds like it is going to be exciting for you.

Happy week

Your shop looks really good, Sares. The cabinet is so pretty painted in Duck Blue. I just love that color! Sorry some of your partners have left but I know you will conitnue to do good pretty much on your own. You are so talented. Good luck!..Christine

Golly! There have been lots of changes going on and you are still standing! Yeah! I really miss our booth and the fun of filling it and seeing what others loved plus the extra cash each month was nice. I'm hoping the new owners will allow you to bloom, just as you are planted. A good buying season is just around the corner for you.
Sending prayers for contentment and success! Love your booth, it's really inviting and pretty Sares.

I love your space...I love it all. So many neat things. Hang in there. I've had some things changing where I have my booth too and my sales haven't been the best. I'm trying to hang in there because I know the holiday season is coming!

Everything looks beautiful!
