Mondays Posting

This last week brought in a new load of antiques. My favorite this week was a fabulous and unusual Mid-Century Hans Olsen Danish Modern dining room table and chair set. I also found a wonderful signed Louis C. Tiffany bud vase, an incredible LARGE and Old Shabby Gilt mirror, several old Wedgewood pieces, a great 19th Century slave tintype, chandelier, art pottery, several nice frames, two Florentine pieces, several pieces of fine jewelry and Florentine jewelry box and shabby chic style painted chair.

I wish I could have photos of these items but due to a death in the family I needed to leave town for a few days and hope to be able to return for the coming Saturday's Trinity District Antique Street Sale. I will try and post photos at a later date. Our store will be open this week.

!!!New Load!!!

With the return from the semi-annual Warrenton/Roundtop Antique Show we are still in the long process of putting the store back together. We've had... lots of fun.. getting ready for the local Industrial Trinity Antiques Street SALE which will be occurring on Saturday,October 31st. We've had a few dealers interested in setting up in front of the store but unfortunately (as seen in Warrenton) I can't predict the weather. But neither can the Weather man.
I ran to Kansas last week and brought back a full load. It's a toss up but I do have a few favorites, the albino coyote, the turn of the century Muskie, the pyrography table, the white dresser and white desk, the 19th century gilt / lacquered pedestal, the yard long florals and the Acoma vase.

Roundtop?? Just a Little Muddy!!

With conditions like this it's amazing anyone showed up. Big Daddy and family from LA, Cat Daddy and family from Seagoville, Tx, Heidi Chapman and Portia, Cody Foster from Nebraska and Gina (Peacock Park) from Michigan were all there for the party. The newcomer this year was Mindy and Dave (Primitives n' Poetry). The rain held out for the most important event... Prom Night at Royers/ Zapp Hall - Warrenton, Texas. Look close.. is that Rachel A??? Theresa's blog party and book signing "The Find" by Stan Williams was also a big hit. Shopping was great as always and it is soooo hard to stay in the booth and not drag more inventory back to the point customers can't get in,,, it's a storage space,, sorry, this stuff is not for sale!!! Pack up is coming in few days and the weatherman is predicting more rain. It has been great to see everyone again... 17 years now!!
