I’m not sure if fluffing is a universal dealer term, or just something said around my mall.  But that’s what we call it when we do a little rearranging of our booth inventory.  If things sit around in the same place for too long, they tend to become cemented to that spot and never wind up selling.  Changing things around every few weeks, or even more often, is a simple way to keep your inventory looking fresh.

So last night was my fluffin’ night.  One night a month our mall stays open late so dealers can make as big of a mess as they want rearranging their booths without having to worry about blocking the aisles for customers. It is soooooo nice to be able to do your work while the mall is closed for business.  The stress level decreases dramatically, and I find myself really enjoying just playing around with my cute things.

The main goal of last night was to find a spot for my new dining table.

It ended up fitting in the corner quite nicely and adding a great pop of color to my space.  To make room for it, I moved my garden vignette to the center of my booth and the hand-painted waterfall chest out of the corner (I think it needed a more prominent spot anyway).

I rearranged most of my silver plate on top of the waterfall chest, and I like how the display turned out.

I am especially happy with my fresh lot of unbound book bundles displayed with some great vintage photos.

And see that cool pewter vase?  I loved its shape and thought it was so unique.  Also, it’s marked “Made in Occupation Japan” on the base, which I just thought was cool.  I’m kind of a history nerd.

I did some work on my shelving display too, just changing up some little things here and there.  I’m sorry for the terrible lighting of these pictures, those fluorescent lights are really unforgiving.

I love this little collection of children’s text books.

And isn’t that little guy in the photo cute?  I also love this sweet enamel creamer. I have had it for awhile now, it needs to find its new home.

A little taste of repeating red, white, and blue, to hint at the approach of July 4th.

I put in a fresh re-stock of vintage sheet music bundles too. They always go so quickly, I have a hard time keeping them in stock. I wonder what sort of crafty things people are doing with all that old sheet music?

I hope you like the new look.  The mall is filled to the brim right now with fantastic things, so if you’re local be sure to come by soon!
