What's New this week & Homestead Antique Show Photos from Hico!

I was not on my game with photo taking. By the time I even remembered to get my camera out the booth had already been picked over. I am not a photographer and when ever Gina is not by my side you won't get quality photos. However, as promised here are a few shots of our booth. To see more photos, please Click here to read Theresa's blog.

Wonderful old galvanized bathtub with oak trim and Pig hoofed feet
At the entrance, we placed a branch in the center of an old patio table (where the umbrella would go) and simply hung "glittery" snowflakes and ferns all over it. It sparkled brilliantly in the sunlight.

Furniture made from vintage wine barrels and a wonderful matching set of old luggage

I didn't get to photograph all of our new bedding. Please stop by the store to see what we have gotten in NEW! It never displays properly as our bedding is queen on Antique Full Size Beds.
Tons of Vintage Ribbon piled up all $5.00 or less

Our Antique French Daybed has SOLD but we still have a few of these wonderful pillows made from Old French Grain Sacks complete with down inserts. Excuse the shadows and tent strap - I am not a photographer
Did you know that we custom make tables and other furniture out of reclaimed wood? We made both of these shown stacked here.

We piled up a gathering of old ironstone, pattern flowers, silver plate, old ledger books, sheet music, etc. in these over-sized large vintage chicken feeders on legs and sold every one of them. Who Knew?

A wonderful Antique Door with Wavy Glass - Vintage Basket full of Ostrich Eggs adorned with vintage men's shirt collars displayed on this Antique Rolling Cart

I wanted to Thank our gracious hosts Mike and Brenda James of Homestead who made this event super spectacular. I also enjoyed each and every other vendor and made some great new friends. I look forward to seeing you all again next year! I also was shocked by the support of our loyal Waco Customers who made the drive out to see us. Thank-you!

What's New this Week!

A few new vintage chandeliers, this one being all original. Check out those swans. The larger of the two is a vintage TV light but would make a beautiful nightlight.

We got in a HUGE and I mean HUGE assortment of vintage ties and scarves for you to shuffle through. At only $1.50 each you can purchase one for everyday of the week. I love seeing how all the girls are wearing these NOW and these wonderful vintage 1940's wing tip, sling back pumps are just waiting for their Cinderella to walk in and fit them.

Found an assortment of old cosmetics that just make me smile

New old alter style mirror (not sure where it came from or original purpose ~ but so awesome) and this tin display stand (SOLD) great for petifores or small treats at your next party

Lots of pristinely white painted vintage frames and these great old round mirrors...
