25 Days Until Round Top/Warrenton Starts

Can you believe we are 25 days away from the Round Top/Warrenton Antique Shows starting.  Actually, since each show starts on a different day it's actually less than 25 days for some of you.  For me, it's exactly 25 days until I'll be in beautiful Warrenton Texas unloading.  I'll be at Renck Hall starting on September 21-Oct 4, on the outside field, alley way as it's called before you enter into Zapp Hall.



It will be such a super busy time for me this weekend since I'll be at Fredericksburg Trade Days the few days prior to leaving for Warrenton, from September 19-20.  So if you won't be able to come to the "big shows" and you are near Fredericksburg Tx please stop by.



There is a show every weekend that you can attend in Texas in September, including Canton Flea Market starting this Thursday.

Here are the September Shows:



Sep 6-7: City Wide Garage Sale, Austin Tx
Sep 13-14:  Cat Spring Tx Garden Antique Show by Rural Texas

Sep 20-21: Huntsville Tx Antique Show
Sep 20-Oct 4: Round Top/Warrenton Texas Antique Week

Hope to see you down one of the junkin roads!

My Son's Birthday & Other Things

Where does the time go?  It's been over a month since I blogged.  I seem to be Facebooking more these days because it's so quick.

August 20th was my son's birthday and because life just keeps us all so busy I'm several days late in showing you some of my fav pics of him:



He always had a binky.  It's still one of my fav pics of him.

Last week we were in beautiful Fredericksburg Texas for Trade Days and here are pics of my space:








I change up my space each month.

I had the best time going to new places in Fredericksburg and laughing and hanging out with my friends.  Thanks for the customers that came out to trade days.

It won't be long before it's time for the Round Top/Warrenton Antique Show but before then we do have one more Fredericksburg Trade Days to do.

I hope you are staying cool from the heat.  I'll try to be a better blogger.  Hope you have a great weekend

July Show

Hello all.  Hope you are having a great week.  Can you believe we are already into July, where has the year gone.  It's already so hot in Texas and we haven't really gotten to the good part of the heat yet.

I wanted to wish you a Happy July 4th weekend!  Here is one display in my home.  I love flags, trophy's, platform mirrors, and so much more:




Don't forget we'll be back at Fredericksburg Trade Days on July 18-20.  I'm so excited to announce that within the next upcoming months I'm going to be building a permanent shop there.  Stay tuned as I share more about this with you.

I've been gathering all kinds of ideas how to build the shop, using vintage wood and thankfully due to a great friend I've come across all that I'll need to do this.  Here's an idea of what I have in mind:

Be safe this weekend.

This Month's Fredericksburg Trade Days

I am so excited to be hitting the road soon because it's time for another Fredericksburg Trade Days. Here are my finds from the past few weeks that I'm bringing to trade days, plus a lot more.


I normally don't do a lot of color, like the pink or red chairs, but these chairs were too cute to pass up.  I hope you're making plans to be there.  There's just so much to do in Fredericksburg Tx that you'd have a great time.

The Red Potato Market

For those that may not have heard of this market, I wanted to introduce to you the Red Potato Market.  They are a fairly new vintage/re-purposed/handmade artisan market that is held in Simonton Texas.  This will be their second market, the first being held in March.  Market Days will feature Antiques, Vintage, Handcrafted and Farmer’s Market with vendors that will have a variety of items to sell.  They are still looking for vendors, so if you are interested, please contact them directly via their website: RED POTATO MARKET.

This years market will be held on Friday June 13 and Saturday June 14 in an outdoor covered arena.  Vendors and dealers, artists and artisans will come from all over, including several local area artists and crafters.   Items in the 63 booths will include architectural salvage, vintage, garden, Re-purposed items, French Country, Rustic Farmhouse, Shabby Furniture, Vintage Garden, Decor, and vintage jewelry, handmade soap, bath goods and some crafts will be offered among the many items available.

 
Their vision is to have a mini-Round Top and Canton, Pinterest, Instagram and other flea market finds all rolled up into one event in Simonton Texas!!!



Mark your calendars for their next event and again if you are interested in becoming a vendor, please contact them directly.  They are also on Facebook, click HERE for more info.

This Last Weekend's Show in Fredericksburg

We had a great time this past weekend at the Fredericksburg Trade Days.  It turned out to be almost one of the best shows we've had there.  Lots of customers were there, I had a birthday to celebrate my upcoming birthday and Trade Days celebrated their Anniversary.  It was all around good time with friends and customers.

Here's a pic of my booth during one of the late nights I was working on my space.



I had been inspired by Ralph Lauren and used lots of flags and blue colors.



Here's more pics:


The last pic showed a stool I made using vintage fabrics.  I included a bible verse on love and the funny thing was when I was looking back at the vintage papers I used on the white piece of paper it had "infidelity" penciled very lightly on it and I thought how appropriate with the bible verse.

 It did find a new home as did several other things in these pics.  I so appreciate everyone that came out and supported us.  See you in June.

May Fredericksburg Trade Days

The Fredericksburg Trade Days Anniversary show is this Friday to Sunday.  They are having their Anniversary Show and debuting the opening of their newest barn.  It should be a great show with awesome vendors and great weather too.   If you haven't been in a while to trade days, you should come and check out what's been happening there. 

Here's part of the load that I've gathered for this show. 













We are set up outside, right beside Barn 1.  Hope to see you in gorgeous Fredericksburg Texas.

April Fredericksburg Trade Days

This upcoming weekend is time for another Fredericksburg Trade Days.  I know it's also Easter Sunday but you can always come early and shop on Friday or Saturday.

I know I haven't had time to show my space during this past show at Renck Hall or even the Blog Party.  As soon as I return I'll show you more.

In the meantime, I hope you come to Trade Days to see what I'm going to do with the Pink Awning:



I've got big ideas for it.  Hope to see you there.

Inspiration from Judy Hill

I've said many times just how much Judy Hill inspires me and I know that she inspires so many of you out there.  She just has her own style and the way she combines architectural items with industrial items and when she throws in a mix of plants, flowers, and her vignettes well I can't help but love her things. 

Take a look and tell me what you think:




Judy and Billy always include arbors they make.  Each one is unique and different.  This one was just so inspirational and loved the chandy too.



Here's one side of their booth.






 Loved the display cabinet.  Before her I would have never thought to include one and she's even used them in her home.  Her booth was at the Marburger Farm show where she's at each season.  Hope you enjoyed seeing her booth.  If you want to see more of her style, you can find her on Facebook at J Hill Designs.

Don't forget this coming up weekend is not only Easter Sunday but it's also time for another Fredericksburg Trade Days.  There's lots of changes going on here, a new Barn is being built.  Hope to see you there.  Have a great week.

Antique Show Inspiration

There were so many creative and inspiring booths at the Round Top Antique Show that I just didn't know where to start.  It took me a few days to wind down and take care of all that needed to be taken of while I was gone to the shows, but I could't wait to show you what all I saw there that inspired me. So I thought I'd start with Donald's booth.  He always inspires me with all he creates.  You have to stand there a while and just stare at all his vignettes, there's just so much to see.

Here's Donald Sparks' booth at Marburger Farm:


He had a little bit of everything, Architectural,  Americana, Primitives, Garden Items, French and so much more:











 All the awnings he used was probably my favorite since I just love using awnings.  If you can't get enough of his displays, he'll be at the Sugar Moon Antique Show in Hico Tx at the end of April. I'm already planning a trip there. 

I have so much more to show you and tell you about my time at Antique Week.

Let's Meet @ Renck Hall on Tuesday

Just a quick reminder that we'll be unloading on Tuesday morning at Renck Hall in downtown Warrenton Texas.  We are located by the alley way (that's what we call it) as you either enter into Zapp Hall or exit from that field.  We're bringing an awesome load of treasures.  Hope to see you during the show:



One quick reminder, we are having a BLOG PARTY.  It's going to be on Friday March 28 at 6pm.  Food is being provided for a small donation, walking taco's.  It's going to be at a new venue, The Rendezvous down from Marburger Farm.

 It's going to be a fun time at the shows and can't wait to see everyone!

Marburger Farm Roll Call

I love this time of year, when you can attend other shows and get so many ideas and inspirations from other fellow vendors.  This Spring I'm really looking forward to seeing what is new at the Marburger Farm Antique Show.

Marburger Farm has well over 300 vendors that set up in tents and out buildings and there's just so much to see.  They also have several places that you can pick up breakfast from or stay and have lunch too.  I'll head over on early Tuesday morning, hoping to beat the crowd, because you know they'll be a line of cars for miles if you don't go early.

I'm really looking forward to seeing these friends and new spaces too that I haven't seen before.  Take a look:


Theresa of Time Worn Interiors

Next is Judy Hill of JHill Designs:


Then I can't wait to see and meet the Perspective Design Crew:


Also looking forward to seeing Mike and Nancy of House Wren:


And I can't wait to see what Agnes has done to her outdoor space:


 and of course I'll probably run to Donald's space, he's so creative:


And of course I can't wait to get the best hug ever from this pretty girl and see her creativity too:



as well as seeing Shelly of Sweet Pea and Lauri of Lauri Evans Designs and so many others.  It's going to be a fun time there.  Maybe I'll see you there too.  Remember they open on April 1st.

Thank you so much for following:
