Getting there ~ Preparations for additional space at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre

 Well I am slowly getting there with the prepartions for my expanded space at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre. This is the pile of trunks that I have emptied of their contents and cleaned and priced.
  The shelving has been painted...............
         and estapoled....I like the shabby paint on this old shelf and the low sheen estapol just seals the  paint and stops it from flaking more. It is on its side beacuse it is too tall to fit under my house.

The suitcases and boxes, which are full of the clean and priced stock, are starting to pile up in my dining room.  

We are set to move in, all going well, on Monday and I am excited to get in and get it all looking fab. The expanded space will mean I will have more room to display items and there will be some room for some furniture items too. The new space is right next to my existing space, SHOP 17, for those of you who are familiar with the wonderful WAC. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
