I Opened a Booth in an Antique Mall

I have exciting news to share with you today! I just opened up a White Cottage Home booth in a local Cincinnati Antique Mall.

It's been a dream of mine for years to have my very own store, but as a mom of 3, it just never felt like the right time.  With my White Cottage Home online shop (LINK), I could be flexible with the days and times that I worked on it.  As much as I love the shop, I've been having an itch lately to set up shop again.

The most logical step seemed to rent a booth, so that's what I have done!  Just this week, I scouted out locations, put down a deposit, and filled up my brand new booth (# M19) at Westchester Antique Center (LINK).  I love how I can now mix in big items and furniture along with the cottage decor I was selling online.  I will continue to have the online store available, but I hope you will come visit my booth if you're a local reader or if you happen to be passing by Cincinnati!

So today, I thought it would be fun to give you a preview of my new space.


Ugly walls needed to be covered! 


Moving in!

I used old curtains stapled up to cover the walls.  Not sure that I will keep that long term. You can still see some of it at the bottom also which I don't like.  I have some better ideas for the walls, but wanted to get something up quickly, so I went with the curtains.

I have so much excitement for this new little business venture!  I plan to spend a day a week refreshing and shushing my little booth!  I will keep you posted on my progress.  Let me know if you'd like more specific posts in the future on running an antique booth.  I am by no means an expert, but we can learn together!

    Your booth contains exactly what my booth and every other booth in any antique mall USA contains. A load of crap.. Facts are, the only one truly profiting is the owner. My owner has a Tesla and a BMW station wagon. They get guaranteed rent and a 10% cut. Go figure.
