Fall at the Booth plus Finding Fall Link Party Features

Sharing is caring!

The weather has been teasing me a little over the past few days . . . offering a tiny hint of coolness in the morning and only getting up to the mid 80’s in the afternoons.  But according to the weatherman, the mid 90’s will be back by the middle of this week, so I’m not quite ready to declare the arrival of fall yet.

But in the retail world, Fall showed up several weeks ago!  I am usually late to the game in getting my Antique Company Mall booth space transitioned to the different seasons (really I’m usually late on most things in life), so I was in a hurry last week to bring in some fall-themed pieces.  Pretty much every other dealer around me seemed to be several weeks into their fall inventory already.

Luckily I found two great ladders and several large apple baskets on my recent trip to Canton, and they anchor the fall display really well.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen a few of these photos, but for the rest of you here is a little peak of fall at Lost & Found.

I apologize for the kind of grainy pics–just had my phone on me while I was working up at my space.

A subdued red and green wound up being the colors in my scheme, and I think it works pretty well. Aren’t those giant apple baskets awesome though?  I think they shout “Farmhouse Style” loud and clear.

Now for some more fall inspiration . . . I am excited to share a few features from last week’s Finding Fall Link Party!


Thank you so much to everyone who linked up and to my 8 co-hostesses.


Each hostess will be picking their own favorites, by the way, so be sure to stop in and see what projects they chose to feature.

I was in love with the beautiful photography of different fall scenes captured by Sandi at Old New Green Redo.  Be sure to visit and look at all of her gorgeous photos.


This Roasted Butternut Squash Bacon Soup shared by Jill at The Party Fetti Blog looks absolutely delicious.  I have a butternut squash hanging out in my refrigerator as we speak, and thanks to Jill now I have a plan for it!


Heather at The Heathered Nest shared her Halloween decked out foyer, but the star of the show is this DIY reupholstered settee.


And lastly, I am so craft-ily challenged . . . These Starbucks Inspired Gift Cards shared by Stacey at Glued to My Crafts completely amazed me.  Who would not feel so incredibly loved if one of these showed up in your mailbox?



Thanks so much again to everyone who participated in the Finding Fall Party.  I enjoyed the opportunity to be a hostess and to pick a few of my favorite posts to pass along to you all.

And here are the links to my co-hostesses, be sure to stop in and see if you were picked as a feature on any of their sites!

Thank you Shirley. I really enjoy my booth space, every so often I wonder if it may be time to let it go and focus on other things as well, but it always seems to pull me back in. I appreciate you stopping by :)
