This is sort of how I feel right now.
Five months ago I filled out an application to rent a vendor space at a wonderful and busy consignment shop. Today, I signed a contract and the 7' x 10' space is all mine come May 1st.
I already have a very long "to do" list, I complain about having little time to paint, and now I've added this major undertaking. I checked the space out today and it needs a major overhaul. So...... I need to build walls, paint them, decorate the space, and fill it with items that must sell so I will have enough money to pay the rent next month + extra. Then, I have to continue finding spectacular items to sell in order to keep the space fresh and inviting. What WAS I thinking???
I have very little time to get this all put together. Thank the stars, several weeks ago I started listing the items I have to sell and boxing them. So, I have most of that ready. The big job is preparing the space and filling it. It will require some grunt work, but to be truthful, I am excited about it. Once things get going, I will have fun hunting for more items to sell. This will require going to tag sales, estate sales, garage sales, flea markets, etc. Such torture I have to look forward to. (:
The contract is on a month to month basis, so if it doesn't work out, I can always leave. But, I have high hopes and plans to make this a worthwhile adventure that will be fun and profitable.
I can't get in there to work until May 2nd, so I will take photos when the space is empty and then again when I fill it with my "stuff" (I mean "treasures"). Once I do all that, I will post the results. Wish me luck!!
