In a word, I was making it my own. After all, I'm going to be spending quality time there so it has to feel just right. I decided that paint wouldn't fix the walls to my taste and decided to use the drop cloths to cover the walls photoshoot style. We staplegunned them into place. There is some space still uncovered but I got another drop cloth tonight and will cut it in half to fill in the empty space.
It was late in the afternoon when we were wrapping it up and our vendor neighbors stopped by. You never know who you'll meet at Renningers Flea Market. It turns out that the tool shop guy next door to us used to live on our street 5 houses down. Everyone is very friendly. Of course they want to know what I'm going to sell. How do you explain that you sell vintage decor, props and curiosities?

I think I have them throughly perplexed with the drop cloths. After all, everyone else has pegboard paneling or something similar. No worries, the vendors at Treasure Cove were perplexed too, but not for long. Soon some were starting to copy me!
There's still work to be done, but I'm feeling really good about it. It's going to work out okay ; )
