What Graffiti?

Business has been moribund at my antiques
booth at Somerville Center Antiques.

Now there's a perfectly good word that I don't think I have ever used before.

This slump is probably the fault of a slow post-holiday economy,
and my totally ignoring maintenance and updating at the booth.
Probably more the latter.

Daughter Anne says she'll give me a hand this week,
moving some no-sellers back home, and bringing in new items.

And - because she is both an artist and a good soul -
she has agreed to help me do something with the
walls of the booth, which currently are a dull and dreary,
scuffed and worn-looking cream color.  Ick.

What will we do?
I'll let you know after we do it.
I probably should ask the landlord first . . . .
