Apparently, our readers love seeing makeovers. Our post last night was a success. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read it. We received a lot of questions about different things that were discussed, but the most asked question was about build-outs. I wanted to do a follow-up today and talk a little bit about that and share some photos.
If you are just stopping by for the first time, we did a post yesterday on one of my old booth makeovers. You can click here to read it. A lot of you were wanting to know more about build-outs. So for those of you that weren’t sure a build-out is any type of development or improvement to your booth. This can also include adding walls, a roof, or an expansion.
I’m going to show some examples below, but let me preface this by saying I don’t do this to booth shame, anyone. I realize not all stores allow build-outs, or maybe you do not have the financial or DIY resources to accomplish something like this. Unfortunately, I, too, have been in all three of these situations.
Here is a pic from one of my 2018 shopping trips at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors. This was taken in the Marietta store. I swear they are not paying me for all this advertising, lol. This was my booth home for a while and I just happen to have a lot of store pics. Anyway, this booth is a good example. It reminds me of a little front door cottage. It has a tin roof, sides, lots of architectural salvage like the stained glass window hanging over the doorway and the weathered picket fence on the sides. This is one of the smaller booths at the Queen, but it is so welcoming and charming that everyone steps inside for a closer look.
