I don't say it enough on here, but I really love what I do. My business, The Mad Mod Shop, is so much fun and has become pretty successful and it hasn't even been a year yet (it will in June)! It's Spring Break for me right now, so I've been working almost every day at the antique mall, Conroe Central Market. Partly because I love working there and also because most of my friends are too busy having fun with my other friends without me. But whatever, I got my vintage clothing business (insert hairflip emoji)~ Any-who the photos below are from today while some friends visited me and it was just a slow day so I had time to photograph a lot of things I've been meaning to.
I don't know if I've mentioned the awkwardness of my booth's location...The building it's in used to be a JCPenny in the 1970s, so naturally I picked the old dressing room as my spot (free clothing racks woohoo!). My dad and I struggled to think of the perfect idea of getting the crowd inside, but we finally decided on this totally bitchin' marquee light we found on Etsy.
I'm currently having a $5.00 everything over $12 sale! I made the sign out of an old record sleeve and cut-outs from a vintage LIFE magazine.
The $5 clothing trunk I always bring to Pop Shops has finally made it to my booth!
I just sold that butterfly clock (that was my great-grandmothers') today to a friend!
Today I dressed as if I was a Wes Anderson character. In the back of mind I always like to think I'm living in one of his nostalgic stories!

If you're asking yourself, "Is that a Bill Murray necklace???" You are 100% correct! Cass got it for me for Christmas and it's basically the best thing EVER.
The moment I have $325 I am buying this bobcat.
Most of these items are my boss' but that beautiful glass dome/globe thing is mine! It's super cool and rotates at the same speed the actual Earth does. It's basically a time machine (no really it's a clock though).
One of our newest vendors sells BEAUTIFUL stones and gems (and I want to buy them all).
The lovely LM Strange and Marcie came to visit and brought me lunch today!
From now on I plan on keeping you lovely readers up to date with my shop and the festivals I do, because it's soooo much fun! I'm in the middle of creating new things for my Etsy shop and all I can say right now is that it involves yarn pom poms! I'm super excited to finish my craft project and I hope you guys love it as much as I do~
Hope everyone is having a super, fantastic, safe week!
