HOT TIME AT CANTON

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.



Close-up of treasures in one of the cubby holes.


Black chandelier found a new home.


Love the ironstone!


Pair of great old heavy metal gates.

Wonderful detail!



Hope you enjoyed the pictures.
Did you see anything you liked?

SEE YOU NEXT MONTH!

Oh My it looks like I missed a good one but I don't think I could have stood the heat. I am waiting for fall so I can at least stay for the day and not worry about heat stroke.
See you then!!

Hi, I saw a great steel rusty cabinet painted turquoise on Theresas blog. Might it still be available and possibly going to Warrenton? Let's talk :)

Beautiful treasures! We hit the "Floods" all the way that day from Houston to Burnet to all points in-between. But, did it stop this "junkin' yaya"??? NO WAY!

Take care...xo...deb
