Just in time for Christmas / New Year's we are displaying our extensive vintage costume jewelry collection. We have an ABFAB selection of rhinestones in many colors, but especially clear. Young and old love rhinestones this year. (Have you seen how they stack the bracelets?) Most of ours are cheaper than new, and they'll increase in value because they are quality! Pieces start at just $5.00 but non-vintage costume jewelry starts at just $2.00! Mention this blog and get 20% off your jewelry purchase.

AND......don't forget: We have the LARGEST and COOLEST selection of vintage Xmas in Dallas- literally thousands of ornaments. (Gift for yourself or someone else)

The Winning Goose

The last week has brought out a rash of comments concerning our drama duck. It seems that an obvious separation of male/female preferences has occured. Women have made their voices heard for the princess goose. Men have all voted for the "South of the Border" goose. Unfortunately "Princess Goose" votes have allowed her to win hands down. Thanks go out to everyone both on the net and in our store who have taken the time to vote.

Hot Christmas Colors

Christmas is soon upon us with bright and vivid colorful chartreuse / orange combination along with the soft and mild silver and turquoise. These colors could not be better displayed than with a large assortment of Christmas ornaments. You can even feel the Holiday spirit in the air with a fall arrangement of ornaments, pine cones, greenery and colorful Fiesta ware.


Turquoise and silver ornament places
in colorful bowls or even large clear glass jars make a wonderful touch.

This season we have been lucky enough to be able to acquire a huge collection of vintage mirrors.

Country Garden Antiques now has it's new shipment of Vintage Christmas ornaments displayed and ready for sale. We also have Shiny Brights, Antique Feather Trees, vintage Santa's and Snowmen, Putz houses, indents, bottle brush trees, pine cone ornaments, wreaths and even vintage stockings.

We're back from the Warrenton/Roundtop Antique Show and on the road to recovery. We have to be because we're preparing for the semi-annual street fair in the Riverfront Antique District, otherwise known as Trinity Antique District. In case you haven't heard of this there's about 10 city blocks involved, full of antiques and collectible dealers out on the streets and inside shops and malls selling their wares at great price points. All in all there are a couple hundred dealers participating. It runs from about the 900 to 1200 blocks of Riverfront, plus some of the side streets. Come to our store @ 147 Parkhouse for a map of participating vendors.

We're all spiffed up for the street sale and have brand new displays for you to peruse. We also have incredible markdowns on many items just for the sale. The sale is Sat. October 23, from 9-5. See you there!

The 36th Roundtop Connection

As time may have it, it has now been 36 wonderful shows. I will remember that always since our son was in a bassinet and is now a freshman at UT.
We are about to complete this seasons Semi-Annual Warrenton Antique show. Without a glitch, the show has been quite a success. The weather has cooperated , hurricanes and floods have stayed away and with one day remaining it looks as though the tornadoes have left us alone.
Despite the claims by the experts, sales have been great and our favorite times are about to start. REPLENISHING INVENTORY TIME!!!
We have manages to pick up a few pieces of furniture. The sweet chimney cupboard will make someone a perfect bathroom linen storage or kitchen cabinet.
Last night was prom night at Zapp Hall in Warrenton Texas and I feel we have the BEST seat in the house being the first booth in front of Royers. This year was overwhelming with the sheer numbers of participants at the party. The outfits were over the top with Mark Dooley leading the pack with his team of period dressed pirate's. The four lovely indian maidens were quite a sight as well as the many cross/dressers.
Our wine and cheese spread was destroyed withing a few hours. I think my favorite Dallas customer costume was Betty Bells Japanese geisha girl outfit. Just a little scary since I almost didn't recognize her.
Pack up will start tomorrow night and we will begin setting the store up for the Riverfront Antique District sale with will be on October 23rd from 9-5. The Country Garden Antique store will be set-up and ready to go.
