Moving on....

One of the biggest perks of throwing a
Megapalooza Giveaway as I'm doing right now
is that you get the opportunity to discover
so many wonderful new bloggers through their comments.
One such blogger is the insanely talented Polly of


(all photos courtesy of Sassafras Stuff)

Just a few peeks at her Holiday 2009 vignettes.

The gracious and talented Polly agreed to let me 
showcase her and her incredible blog and booth, 
which can be found in The Olde Shoe Factory Antique Mall  
at 301 Forest Rose Ave. Lancaster, OH.
She has dubbed her space The Sassafras Shop. So cute!
Polly calls her style 
" funky. shabby. farm. imperfect. cottage. french. industrial. rusty. cute. junk. repurposed. simple."
Sounds good to me.

So why the title Booth Envy?

Quite simple actually, when I see the sheer artistry at work 
in her sublimely gorgeous space, I see my booth the way I imagine it to be fully realized.
 Yes, I am suffering from 
a baaaaaad case of booth envy here, folks. 





And if you think Polly does Christmas beautifully (she does!), 
then sneak a peek at some of her other handiwork, 
all from her stunning space at The Olde Shoe Factory....




One-stop shoppong for all your booth lettering needs! 
Polly, I am forever losing scrabble tile letters for my vignettes, 
I sooooo need a local supplier like you!




Quite honestly, I could spend the rest of the day 
cribbing Polly's gorgeous photos, but hopefully I've whet your appetite enough 
to send y'all scurrying over to her luminous blog to see for yourself!

In  closing, I'd be remiss if I didn't include this not-to-be-believed pic of Polly's loo.....
This is her BATHROOM, folks!
I'm speechless, and readers of this blog know that practically NEVER happens.

Polly, I hope that this shout-out to you translates 
into a plethora of new followers 
which turns into a boon in booth business, 
which in turn results in all your dreams coming true!

Giveaway winner to be announced on All Hallow's Eve.

The Feathered Nest said...

My goodness woman!!!!! You are a shooting star!!! You have the best taste and don't worry, your space will "evolve" into what you want it to be ~ I love yours now though! Seems like when you first start out you have a lot of things that you're getting rid of as your tastes have changed. But now as you bring more items in, they will have the "look" that you love ~ you GO girl! xxoo, Dawn (ps, hope you're feeling better!)

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

Wow, 300 followers! Cool Beans girl. Your booth looks great. One of the most fun aspects of being a dealer is that your booth and inventory constantly change and evolve. When I was a dealer back in the day, one of the best pieces of advice was this..."Even if you don't have new inventory, every so often, take everything out and rearrange it". This keeps things fresh! You got what it takes, don't ever doubt yourself!

sweetpea said...

wow~~you are really rackin' up the followers! I hope I win this as Anthropologie is my all time fav store! Fingers crossed,

Congratulations on 300 followers.

Love the booth with the yellow open cabinet/shelving, wire baskets, and scrabble tile. What a great idea to use scrabble tiles for lettering. I need to keep that in mind - can I "borrow" your idea?

Hugs & Smiles
