|New Mini Bag Display|
I like to change my show display every so often, mix things up,
try to look fresh, go with the season....
With that in mind, I've been busy re-doing/ inventing new show props.
Keep in mind, I'm in a 10 x 10 area with a canopy, table space is limited,
I need to take advantage of up space.
that I made about eight years ago.
I intended to wear it to The Ren Fest but just didn't like it.
I pulled it out of the "gone wrong" trunk, ironed it and then pondered.
I pinned the bags to it, but didn't like the see-through aspect of the lace.
It needed some contrast, I dug through my closet and after trying several
things, came up with a long, black sweater coat.
I pinned a vintage veiled, black velvet hat to the hanger
and added a vintage sweater pin thingy.
Next was the large bag/purse display.
I've tried several things and didn't like any.
I had an idea that involved large dowel rods.
Favorite daughter (inside joke) did the Home Depot
run for me and came back with two 1" diameter x 48" long dowel rods.
I had a lace curtain panel, some black fabric, the dowel rods,
spray paint, drawer knobs, ribbon and imagination.
I spray painted the dowel rods gold and added the drawer knobs to the ends.
Then slipped on the lace panel,
added ribbon to hang it from....
Then I pinned on the bags/purses.

I added a ribbon to the center of the bottom so
I can roll it up and tie it off for easy transport.
I also made a garment bag for transporting the aprons, that trash bag I was using....
A little tacky to say the least!
Several other things got a re-do/coat of paint.
Hopefully, once everything is set up we'll look better than ever.
I don't know if the weather is going to cooperate.
Show is tomorrow and there's rain in the forecast.
Wish me luck!
Till next time,
That "gone wrong" jelly?
I used a jar of the orange
to flavor a pot of beans, pretty good!
