Huckleberry Row | Bricks and Clicks

I have a dream.

A dream where one day, we can all live together in a world harmoniously united.

A world where no one uses my E-6000 and leaves the cap off {gasp!}, and where my workspace "mess" can be left at day's end by simply turning off the light and turning the neon OPEN sign off.  Sigh..... I know.... Dream big or go home.

Many handmade artisans who are self-employed "share" some of their workspaces with the rest of their family from time to time, be it the dining room table which offers a large span of flat space or the garage floor which works very nicely for spray painting objects.  And yes, this means the vehicles and many other valuables sit on the driveway in the meantime {insert favorite family member's patience here}.

So understandably, when an opportunity presents itself for a handmade artisan to secure a small piece of their own real estate, we jump on it!  Recently, I had the same thing happen at my house.  Although, I guess depending on who you ask, there may have been more furniture manipulation and creative reorganization than true "opportunity."  The fact remains, I now have a room of my house {well.... mostly one wall in a room} devoted to the display and glory of all things Huckleberry Row.  

What better way to start a showcase than a huge shelf unit from IKEA?  Even though my shelf unit was made at IKEA, I actually bought it on Craigslist for $75 from a woman on the University of Minnesota campus who swears the shelf unit would fit out the door completely assembled.  An hour and a half later... we took the completely disassembled shelf unit home.

The shelf unit holds wood signs from my Quote Chick Etsy shop, premium photo prints from my Red Barn Photograph Etsy Shop, and lots of upcycled jewelry from my Wild Apple Design Etsy Shop.  Having all of these goodies displayed really clears up some space in my office, and will also make preparing for art festivals and craft fairs much simpler.  

All of the items displayed are priced and listed for sale, and occasionally throughout the year I have open houses and invite friends and family to come and shop.  As a matter of fact, it's about time for a holiday open house - I'd better get that on the calendar!

Please let me know what you think, and if you're in my neck of the woods, stop in and shop!
