On&On

Opening soon! I've got a little spot in a new shop opening in Scranton. My husband did so much work to help me revitalize some old garage doors and boxes to create my space.

No new materials used in the making of this booth! Except for an extension cord, light bulb, and a handful of brass screws to hang some vintage knobs.

With all the dark wood, and no light directly overhead, I snagged a vintage lamp at the flea market this past Sunday.

Prepping for First Outdoor Spring Show

Spring weather has finally arrived. My first outdoor craft show of the year is in less than two weeks, so I took the opportunity to waterproof the canopy. Last fall I stupidly tried a spray can of waterproofing. That was an utter waster of time, but I did return it, since it sprayed for less than a minute. Then I did some research.

This is what I ended up buying. One gallon cost almost $50. Worth it if it keeps me dry. Plus it was super easy to apply with the roller on a long stick and only took about 20 minutes.  And I only used about half the bottle.

Here's where I'm headed.  I hope the weather is as nice as it was today. You know what they say...April showers. But...I'm prepared.
