My Booth At The Little Deer Market (finally!)


December 19, 2015 by Terry

So today I thought I’d finally share some pictures from my booth at The Little Deer Market that took place waaaaay back on December 5th!

I have been a bit of a scatterbrain since then trying to catch up on all those things I neglected in preparation for the market that I just never got around to sharing them.

Better late than never I guess and looking back on these I realize just how much I love doing what I do!


I had a very large booth,  12 feet by 20 feet and I’m so glad I went with the larger size.  It was cozy but not overfilled.  I wanted people to be able to have room to view my work without being crowded.  It also allowed people with wheelchairs or walkers to come all the way in to take a better look and shop.

My dear, sweet husband listened to my vision and helped create the ambiance by building me the backdrops.

I asked for rustic walls on castors and that is exactly what I got!  He built me four walls on wheels out of 1×8 rough cut spruce.

I originally was going to whitewash them but decided that they were perfect exactly as they were.


He even wired the walls for lighting!  On the backside of this wall is a light switch with a dimmer and an outlet so I could hang up my chandeliers and plug them in!! What a great idea!  … and the dimmer … perfect for not ‘overlighting’ the booth as I did have 2 of them hanging!


It was so much work setting everything up for just one day but it was so worth it!  I met so many new people and reaquainted with a few old friends.  I was disappointed that it didn’t last longer :)


I sold mostly small items and 3 large pieces, but even if I didn’t sell anything I would’ve still had a great day!


The chippy corner antique cabinet went right away and I could’ve sold it at least 5 times over.  I even got an email from someone asking if I could let them know if I ever do another one as they would like to have one too!  On the right, hanging on the wall is an antique footboard from a bed that I turned into a coat rack.  I wish I could’ve found the headboard as it would’ve been a beautiful bed!  I do love it as a coat rack too :)


The little round table beside the chair  says “Cookies For Santa” on it.  I thought it was perfect size to make into a special ‘cookie’ table.  I can just see a little one setting up milk and cookies on it for Santa beside the tree ….  :)  (it sold right away!  It was priced at $19)

So after an overwhelming day at the market, I am pleased to say that I reserved the same spot for the next market in the spring!!!

I was also excited when I read the local paper this past week to find that I was featured in it as a vendor at the market! There were so many talented vendors there and I am honored to have been singled out!

Thank you to all those who came out and supported our local market!  And thank you for a great day!

I can hardly wait until the next one!

    Job well done, Terry! Looks great, and I’m glad you had fun. I’ve thought about doing a booth at a fair sometime. I suppose this is fuel for the fire.

    And I love your rough plank walls! Such a great idea! I’m thinking it could be a very stylish way to do dividers too! Well done!



  3. You do beautiful work. Plus you displayed everything so nice. I’m glad it was a success for you.


  4. Oh My…’s so beautiful. You are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Congratulations on the feature – that is awesome Terry! Your booth is lovely and filled with loads of beautiful treasures. It’s no surprise you had a successful day. Love the backdrops your husband made too! How lucky to have an indoor venue like that to sell your goods a few times a year. I haven’t found anything like that here in the Edmonton area. From one Alberta gal to another, wishing you a Merry Christmas!

    You did a beautiful job…hubby too! I am all about wheels. I put them on most furniture but wheel-able walls is brilliant!


  8. T! Amazebombs! I commented on your pom pom post that hubs is a lucky man – well, you are well matched – the walls are fantastic and I had to sit down when I read he had wired them too. OH MY!! And you should have charged more than $19.00 for that table…

      Awe! You’re sweet! I have to admit I am very lucky to have him! All I need is a roof and I’d have my own little shack! ha ha. The feet on the table were out of molded plastic so I didn’t think it was really worth more than that? Plus I found it for waaaaaaaay less too. I still made quite a bit off of it. Have a happy New year my friend! I’m off to read your latest and greatest!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
