Changes for the New Year

BIG NEWS!! I'm moving out of my building at Canton. But I won't be far -- just moving into the heated and air conditioned Civic Center. I'll be setting up close to Lillie of Junk Palace and Donna of Curious Goods. So be sure to come by and see all of us next Canton!!

Just come in the door on the left and look for me!

See you there!!

Closing the Palace

It's official.
My friend Lillie has decided that her shop,
Junk Palace,
is closing.
I'm bummed....
She had the best shop ever.

But, if you want a heck of a deal with prices slashed to the bone, her sale starts this Saturday at 11:00.

See you there!

Show Pictures

I made it back from Round Top only a bit waterlogged! My rain boots are finally drying out. It was a great show and I can't wait to do it again. It was so good to see all my friends and meet new ones.

Here are some pictures of my booth at the Texas Rose Antique Show in Round Top. Please ignore the little plastic cups under the legs of all the furniture. We had lots of rain and this is the best way to keep the moisture from wicking up the wood.


Thanks to everyone who came by to say hello. Hope you had a great time and found lots of wonderful treasures! See you at the next show....

Am I coming or going??

I know! I know!! This month is almost gone and I haven't posted anything about last Canton. I've been busy!! I did take a few pictures, but must apologize for the quality -- I guess I had my camera on the wrong setting....

If you see anything you want me to pack for Round Top, let me know. It might still be available.... and I'm still packing. It took two trips with a van & trailer to get everything down there for the last show and I have doubled my booth size for this show!! I know I have at least 20 totes of vintage Christmas ready to go. And then there is that fantastic 7 piece French set. And I'm hoping there's room for the bigger than king-size OLD metal 4-poster bed..... Did I mention that I'm stressing a little??

This is one busy time of year! Everyone I know --including me-- is getting ready for the big show at Round Top/Warrenton. I'll be setting up this Tuesday. Should already be there, but first I have to do the Antique Elegance show this weekend at the Richardson Civic Center. This is one fantastic show with beautiful antiques. Then I'm off to Round Top to set up at the Texas Rose show -- right across from Marburger. Right after that I'll be at Market in the Meadow in Dallas and then at the Pacesetters Bazaar in Richardson.

Here are a few little creations I've been working on. They are packed up and ready to go to the holiday shows. This is just a little sample, mind you. Have to keep some things a surprise!!

Hope to see you soon!

P.S. I'll have to wait to celebrate my 100th post until after Round Top.

I'll keep in touch!!

Just a peek.....

Here's a little peek at one of the projects I've been busy creating. I'm trying to get lots of things ready for Round Top and a couple of holiday shows that occur the following two weekends after Round Top. Who knows.... I might just have to take this to the next Canton.

So much to do -- so little time.
I better get back to work!

* * * * *

P.S. This is my 98th post!
Do you want me to have some sort of fun giveaway to celebrate my 100th post?

Any ideas??
Let me know!!!

I'm not kidding you -- it was HOT! And then the big rain and wind came in late Saturday afternoon and cooled everyone off for a little while. Unfortunately, it flooded some of the dealers out and messed up quite a few tents. Then the storm passed on and it was nice and sunny and everyone went back to shopping. I do want to send a big 'thank you' to one of my new favorite customers -- Harley -- who sought shelter in our building and ended up helping us lift up furniture and squeegie water out of the bulding. Come by next time you are at Canton and get a cold one -- and I don't mean water!

Here are a few pictures from the show.....

Very tall full-size wooden spool bed.

Close-up of bed pillow tied with paper flowers.

Pretty tole trays.

Comfy vintage porch glider and heavy metal grate table.

Wonderful gilded mirror.

Great old chippy frames.

Small old doll dresser.

Even smaller doll furniture.

Fantastic pair of old fabric covered valances.

Close-up of memory jug.

Best pair of gilded chairs ever!!

Love little domes. And big ones....
Everything looks great under a dome!

Great tall wire shirt transporter!
Would look great in bath holding towels.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Buchanan's Vintage Market

I'm heading back to Buchanan's Vintage Market today to do some more selling and a bit of shopping. Had a good day yesterday and will deliver the big patio set today. Stop by and say hello. The show is at Fair Park in Dallas -- inside the Automobile Building where it's nice and cool. There is some good stuff here!! Here are a few pictures from my booth for you to enjoy.....

Love this pair of chairs!

Doesn't India look cute in her new pink boots?

One more happy customer!!
