I needed to take a load of things to the store in Sulfur Springs to refill my booth after the Christmas rush, I had a good month I was very pleasantly surprised. The owners of the Town Square Antique Mall in quaint downtown Sulphur Springs ; Tony and Marjorie Martin, said that December was a good month for antiques. The dealers I spoke with were very happy with their sales. I try to go to the mall once a month, to restock, and have a long weekend with, my friends in the area, I lived up that way for a short time, and made many good friends. On my way I stopped in at Curious Goods in Malakoff, a favorite place with some really clever ideas for using vintage items! To see Donna and pick up a purchase for my friend Patti of A Delighted Heart. Please check out Donna's neat stuff.
When I finished there, I went down the street to where Junk Palace is opening her new shop, I can't give away any secrets, and my camera, was lost in my truck, buried under my latest load of bird nest's still on limbs that my sweet husband risked life and limb for (really) to fetch, for me. He was a top a 6 ft ladder in the back of his 250 ford, reaching with a limb lopper, while the wind was gusting around 25 miles an hour, he was scratched and bruised, and not a happy camper, while he was perched atop this ladder risking his neck for me. During this a woman approched him to come see, why her car would not start, she had the key in upside down, it was a rental. I forgot to add my husband is 6ft4in and not a small boy, he did climb up in one tree for a prize specimen that I spotted just a little higher.
Back to my travels, it is really hard to keep on track, with my attention span of a gnat. I entered the soon to be fabulous shop of Junk Palace, introduced myself as AJUNKQUEEN and the rest is history, not quite so dramatic you see, I always name drop THERESA CANO sent me, that opens most door's wide! Lillie the lovely, owner invited me in and gave me a tour of the upcoming treasure chest, I said my good byes and met up with Tony Martin and we headed to Jo Harmons of Imagine located in Hunt County Trade Days in Quinlin Texas, she has an amazing eye for design, and has fabulous finds using creams whites, and rusty crusty things. Liz from Lone Oak is also in same trade area give these girls a look see.
Tony and I also made some other visits and fun finds at The PinK Flamingo on the main route thru town, and Chic and Tique, the room style arrangements, and color groupings were a treat to look at! There are more shops on this strip through town it is a worth while stop, we were on our way again this time to Primitives in Poetry, owned by Mindy of same blog title it was a treat, she has a wide selection on of varied inventory, I noticed three clocks, checked her blog after arriving home, she said some one bought them from the blog site Mindy is located in Jacks Feedstore in Terrell, go see her..
I will show what few pictures of my booth once I got it arranged two times, just finished, stood back and a lady said I really dont want to upset you but I want to buy your Harvest table, I had found my camera, snapped a few shots and had to borrow a table from Tony and start again, but that's what we do!
