Time to unveil my new surprise. Holly Hills Primitives has decided to expand and open a booth at the Livington Antique Outlet in Howell, Michigan. My good friend and antique buddy Carol and I decided to join forces and resources and take the plunge. We have had so much fun painting, planning, making and more. We have started moving in and it's all coming together with each load we take.
We have a nice corner booth and are on the waiting list for the booth next to us - if it ever comes available.

We have LOTS more work to do, more goodies to haul and things to make, but at least this is the beginning.
Our booth is a little unique. We have antique, new and handmade wares for sale.
Still looking a little empty, but it will all finish coming together soon.
Have you ever seen one of these? It's an OLD wire hoop to go under a skirt with the spring "bustles" attached. So unique.
This child's stepback is adorable. Could be used in any room and not just for children!

This little make-do chair is another cutie.
The best ever are these old children's canvas boots. Wouldn't they be great in just the right spring arrangement?
Mama's Reading Chair and Listen' Stool.
Great, large blanket crane with old (never used - still with label) muslin sheets.
Hope you stop by when you're in the area. I think I'm going to love having a booth along with the shop and the antique mall is HUGE!
Now it's back to reorganizing the shop, sewing and ordering lots of new spring goodies.
Mark you calendars for Saturday, February 26 from 8 a.m. until noon. We are doing a shop-hop with Wren In The Willow (Goodrich, Michigan) and you have to wear your p.j.'s for any discounts. More to follow!
Have a good Sunday evening my friends.
Until next time...

  11. Hi Dawn, I just came across your blog. I love your booth at the mall. I have had one for the last three years. My father opened up a antique shop when I was little and had it for forty years. Antiquing runs in my blood. So I love seeing other peoples shops and booths. I started my blog last fall and have met so many nice people who love primitives. Thanks for sharing your photos. Vicky
