For the last three weeks or so, I have been working on getting items ready to set up a re-sale booth at Old Bank Antiques and Collectibles. It’s an awesome shop filled with very unique and beautiful things. On Thursday night, we started loading the truck and realized that we would have about three truck loads of stuff. That’s not a good thing considering that it takes us a little over 4 hours to drive there. Needless to say, after much discussion, we decided that it would be best to try and find a place closer. Another thought we had, was that Lake Martin is our fun, vacation spot for weekends and we’d be tied down trying to keep booth filled and fluffed.
Friday morning, I call and cancel my space. A little sad and discouraged, I told Mr. reFresh, well I need to get rid of some of this stuff. Who knows when I’ll find a place to sell it. We loaded up the truck and he took it to Habitat Restore. He called me twice while he was there, because Mrs. Restore said, is she crazy??? This is some great stuff! (Remember one of my goals was to give back, by helping Habitat)~done.
Friday night, I get an email and then a phone call. Something I would not have imagined would happen for months. There’s a spot available in Pooler, about a 45 minute drive for me. This first thing that went through my mind was my stuff that I had just donated to Habitat 🙂 Saturday morning I go to Habitat to try and buy it back…LOL…Mrs. Restore hugged my neck and said Thank YOU! I sold all your stuff, the same day Mr. reFresh delivered it. AWESOME!
Remember I said I had about 3 truckloads, so I did have a little left!
I moved in to a sweet spot at Two Women and A Warehouse, Tuesday! This is my first venture in doing something like this. I’m very excited and hopefully I’ll stay excited!
I’ll just show you the pictures now, since I’ve been talking so much!
This store is filled with awesome stuff. Some old, some new, and most all refreshed 🙂
I’ve been neglecting my email, Facebook, twitter, Friends, housework…no telling what else.
I hope to be getting back on track very soon.
But, I am going to see my Mama and family for Easter.
So you may not see me much until next week!
PS I have an awesome friend to tell you about next week, it’s all because of her, that all this was possible!

We visited Two Women and a Warehouse last month while in Hilton Head for vacation. Loved the place!
That’s fantastic! I love that story! You really do gat what you give – this is just another example. Your space looks great and I’m so glad you sold well on your first step out!
Wow!! Your space looks adorable. Good luck to you 🙂 I just began a similar venture. You can find the link on my blog!!
Woot!Woot! Hooray 🙂 I want a booth 🙂 Looks great Debbie.
You go Debbie – what a fun shop and I see you’re already a raging success (sale every day in your first week)!!
Hope you continue to have fun in this great new venture!
OK, NOW YOU COME DECORATE MY BOOTH!! AMAZING!! It looks like a magazine…You are incredible!
Debbie! This is so exciting! I’m sure a lot of work, but how fun to be doing something new and adventurous. Your booth looks awesome…it will be fun to hear all about the journey. And good on you for donating to the restore…what a fun chain of events. Enjoy the holiday with your mother. 🙂
Congratulations and how very exciting for you! While we miss you as you get your new venture up and running, just know that we are out here and rooting you on!
Congratulations! Way to go for it! I wish you huge success!
How wonderfully that all worked out! I just opened a booth too…my very first time and I am SO excited! Your’s looks wonderful! I am hoping to get mine up and running next week….the place is old and I had to do some fixing up before I could move my stuff in. It’s so much fun though!
Blessings…..and a Joyful Easter
I’m drooling over the teal lamp in the corner. So happy it worked out for you.
Congrats, Debbie! I am loving my little booth and I know you will, too! Love the scenic route you took to get there. Good luck!
Gosh isn’t that just typical, anyway all the best with the new venue.
YAY! That is just so exciting Debbie! Probably good I don’t live closer to you or I would just go and buy up everything in your shop! 🙂 Congrats on your new adventure friend!
Its funny how things work out sometimes. You got to giveback and get a space! Good luck , I hope you have a great time and huge success.
Wow Debbie!! That is AWESOME!! Everything looks fabulous. Man, God works in mysterious ways. So glad you’re closer to home and you get to sell your amazing creations 🙂 GOOD LUCK!!
Oh Debbie! I just knew when we talked that you made the right choice. I am so thrilled for you that something else came about so soon. Habitat scored when Mr Fresh showed up, odd karma that the phone ran the next day? HUGS and best wishes on your business venture!! I am tickled for you!!!! =)
Debbie, It’s beautiful! I’m thrilled for you! Can’t wait to see how successful you will be and how much FUN you will have! 🙂
Congratulations Debbie! This is so exciting! It looks like your booth is filled with some really fantastic items!
Happy Easter to you & your family!
Debbie, I almost emailed you this weekend! Two of my friends and are getting a booth at The Peddler’s Mall close to our home, and I was trying to tell her all about what you do, and how you keep talking about styling your booth. We really want to come up with a name, start with a booth, and then eventually move to a store (the rent in the little town they live in is dirt cheap!) I am so glad you posted this so I can show her how you styled yours. I have been keeping back antiques and furniture redos with the dream of doing something like this…thanks so much for posting this at just the right time!

Looks great and I’m sure you will enjoy it. Much work is involved, but at least you will have some place to put all your “stuff” and people will love being able to buy it. Have a great Easter.
How exciting Debbie, CONGRATS on your new booth!! Love your sign!
Congrats on your new booth!!! I will tell ya…I was so excited when I was reading that you were going in at Old Banks at Lake Martin since I do spend some time there (will be there on the 13-16). Believe me…you would be working a lot while there and not soaking up all the fun at the lake. Your booth looks charming….LOVE your sign…did you make it? I wish you lots and lots of luck my friend. Happy Easter!!
oh i love your sign!!!! it’s amazing and the space looks awesome!
How exciting! I’m so happy for you, Debbie. This is great news.

I’m thinking you gave back and it came back to you in the way of having a space open up closer. One good turn deserves another type thing. I’m also thinking some REstore shoppers got some cool stuff!
Thanks for sharing this — Good luck in your endeavor. I hope to be doing this within the next year after I relocate to FL…. 🙂
Debbie…you know what they say…when God closes a door, he opens a window! He opened that window in record time for you! Congrats on the new space! 🙂
Oh my Debbie. What a trial but how generous of you to donate some of your things. I am so glad though that you found a space.It is hard to find one close to home here too. With my little guys I can’t really travel 45 min to an hour away every week. I like being close to home in case something happens. Love your space!!
I’m so excited for you Debbie! Your space looks great and no doubt you will do well. Easter Blessings to you and your family, Gail
Congratulations! Your space looks awesome and the store sounds fabulous! Have fun!
Congrats to you! What a story huh It was just meant to be that way Deb! Best wishes to you.
I am so excited for you! I do agree that a four hour drive to restock a booth would get old quickly! Your area looks very fresh and pretty and if they wanted to buy your stuff so quickly at Restore, I bet they buy it quickly here also. Have a great Easter!
How fun! Looks like you have a great spot. I bet you are Habitats hero 🙂
