Dallas Vintage Market

We are set up at the Dallas Vintage Market in Market Hall in Dallas. I found out about this section of the Dallas Market show while at Round Top. Me and my friend Tara took a road trip in June to check it out and upon entering the Vintage Home building Tara clearly said, "oh, you are so doing this". I was encourage by that and quickly told the show coordinator I would like a booth. Then...I got nauseous, nervous  and wondered what the heck I was thinking!!! But now it is January and we have traveled to Dallas and are set up in our little 10x20 booth, ready to show our refurbished and non refurbished vintage items. Here is a photo show of what we have created in 1 and 1/2 days.....probably a little photo heavy ;)

While at Round Top Antiques Week in the Spring the cutest girl with the nicest personality popped in my booth and said she loved some pillows I had made. She told me she had a shop in Cypress and asked if there was any way we could talk wholesale. We came to an easy agreement and she bought a few pillows. She came back this fall and we talked about a few other items, made an order list and she was off to scour the fabulous fields of  vintage/antique heaven of Round Top.

I started working on her order as soon as we unpacked and got settled back at home. Today I had the privilege of delivering these items to her shop and oh what a treat that was!!! Her shop is called Little Eclectic House in Cypress, Tx. Talk about some serious eye candy...ok let's stop talking...enjoy the pictures!

This little cutie on the front porch is Gus....Shellie, the owner, said he showed up a few weeks ago and decided he had found a new home. When she closes up at night he curls up and sleeps by the front sweet is that?

On Saturday's one of Shellie's girlfriends bakes a special treat to serve at the store and there is always coffee. This is a definite road trip worthy place to visit. Here is some info for you...

Little Eclectic House

15515 Mueschke Road
Cypress, TX  77433
Open:  Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Also, I believe she mentioned that the first Saturday of every month a local farmer's market sets up on the lawn!!!

We're back...Whew!!!!

We have been back from Round Top Antiques Week at LaBahia for almost a week now. Everything has been unloaded, cleaned, wiped down, repaired (if needed) Eeks! and new projects started. We had a fabulous time, as usual, but are glad to be back in our own bed. I love camping, but camper mattresses, well, lets just say, are not tempurpedic !!! This is how we roll.....None of this is possible without the muscle you see in the picture...not sure why he works so hard to make this happen but I am so happy he does!!! 

And where we start...Troy and our son Corey drove up a day early and put down the floor in the cow pasture. The ground is quite uneven and this sure helps furniture to sit know what I mean with that word!!!

And here we are at the end of day one....

And here are just a few pics of the booth as the week went on....

Coming soon....just some fun happenings during the week....
