~~~~The Ottawa Vintage Clothing Sale is exactly one month away. It is on November 9, 2008 at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, Ontario. I decided the best way to prepare, as a vendor, is to take a detailed inventory of my stash :) Each booth is a generous 150 square feet ~ 10 x 15 feet in size. More like a room than a booth.
I decided that I have about 25 categories of items (I know, I know) and I do think I can provide about 25 items of each type. That is a whopping 625 items to organize, price and pack. Whew! It's a good thing I still have a full month left! Yikes.
I shall bring items that will cover all of the following categories:
Vintage Ladies Clothing
Shoes and Stockings
Hats and Bonnets
Scarves and Stoles
Jewelry and Purses
Collars and Shawls
Pincushions and Sachets
Table Toppers and Runners
Tablecloths and Napkins
Tatted Doilies and Irish Crochet
Pillowcases and Bedding
It will certainly be a busy weekend. I (well . . . . my husband ~ thanks hun) made me a spreadsheet to document the best selections for each category. I printed it out and it is 12 pages long ! That certainly puts my workload in perspective. I think a few new rubbermaid storage bins may also be required, LOL. I also have to fit this all in my car.
