Ms. T's Famous Blog Party

I am always so late getting news to you all, but I am on my way to Warrenton / Round Top of the BIG Texas Antique Fair and I wanted to let you know about Ms. T's Famous Blog Party!

First of all, this event is hosted by Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage. You honestly can't go ANYWHERE here in Texas in the Antique World without people knowing who she is. I would call her the reporter of all things Vintage. She knows everyone and everyone knows her. If you want to know where the best places are to shop or what events are coming up you MUST follow her blog. I owe her much gratitude. She has covered Bloom & Bee Swanky on many postings and I have had many new customers and made new friends due to her wonderful reporting. We were blessed with her presence at last Fall's Open House and I am hoping to entice her to come set up with again sometime in the future.

A Blog Party is a party to bring all of us Bloggers who love old Junk as much as the next together. You never know who you might meet. Unfortunately, I missed the last event and died when I saw this photo. Here she is with Debbie of Curious Sofa and Elizabeth from Elizabeth House -my 2 all time favorite retailers who have been the most influence on Bloom & Bee Swanky. I have had the opportunity to meet with Debbie on a couple of occasions. She was kind enough to even meet with me personally for a couple of hours to talk shop while we were in Round Top. I can't say enough about how kind and generous she is. Before we opened the shop downtown, Bev and I headed all the way to KC just to shop her wonderful store and turned around and drove straight back. I know we are a little crazy, but that is how fabulous she Really IS! We were going to head over to St. Louis to see my other favorite designer Elizabeth, but sadly this was the week she was closing shop to move on to better things (read her blog and you'll learn why). I have never had the pleasure to meet her in person; hopefully one day. However, she did call me on the phone once and I thought I was going to DIE. This is how generous these 3 Super Stars Are. One of the reasons I continue to work so hard during these tough times is the people that you meet. Antiquers are quite honestly the nicest people you will ever come across and I hope you will get a chance to come to the Blog Party to find out for yourself.

At the last Blog Party Sue of JunkMarket held a Book Signing.
Here is our Very Own Susan Skinner in Line!
We are having a rocking good time!

This Year Stan Williams will be there signing his New Book The Find.

While you are there head on over to our Waco's own Kettle Korn brought to you by Mark and Susan Skinner. They truly have the best snack food there. Careful it is quite addictive. Right behind their trailer they have a booth of some of the most fabulous finds you won't want to miss. They are located in Warrenton. Turn like you are going into the Diamond Shamrock and drive to the back parking lot. You can't miss it. Tell them Bee Swanky sent ya!

  1. You were so sweet to do this post. You my friend are the talented one, yes you, just look at the awesome displays that are in your store. And yes, I'd love to come back and set up again. Had a blast. Sorry you didn't get to make it out to the shows, maybe in the Spring. I'll save you a seat, ok!
