"to think about something unceasingly or persistently; dwell obsessively upon something"

Yes, it's true, I've been obsessed the last couple of weeks.
Not with a piece of jewelry. 
My Booth.

Some observations from the last show.

The name of my blog? etsy shop?
romantic decay

When we attached the sides to the booth what did i see?
It screams decay doesn't it?!

I used tags to display my earrings.
Did I mention the heat index was 105 degrees with 999% humidity

They were folded over in a couple of hours.

And then there is attracting people to your booth.
I use a dressmakers form on the outside which people would stop and look at, but not wander in.


20 yards of tulle to drape and soften the plastic.

5 lbs. of rebar wire
6 days of twisting, bending, looping, wrapping
36" of quirky
my husband calling me "obsessed"

My earring chandelier.
(indoor pictures are awful)

This will be hanging in the back.
I hope it works.
I would hate to have to grab people by the ear and drag them in :)

Now back to the jewelry obsession!

I hear ya! I do the same thing...I have learned to take pictures at each show so I can critique them and improve my display each time.

Excellent! Looks like you are on the right track for sure. It's tough to make that white plastic look old! I use tuule (sp) curtains I picked up at Ikea, to soften the back drop. Lots of old lace, books, silver trays. Looks pretty good. You'll get it, and people will notice it! Riki
