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!

A few things New this Week...
There won't bee many more photo updates until after our Open House. You will just have to come in and see for yourself. We are busy bees getting ready for the Waco Jr. League Show followed by our Holiday Preview Party Nov. 12. Check back for more details soon!

We just got in another beautiful table (if I say so myself made by my incredibly talented husband) with a matching bench that has antique ball and claw feet. We can custom make you any table to any dimensions and style you desire. Call or stop by for details.
Reupholstered, Tufted, Ticking -Vintage Chair, Fabulous Collection of Lafco's Newest Candles that come from World Travels and a wonderful old crusty Locker
Remember we put out new things in the store each and every day and only share a sampling of them here on the blog!


  1. Wonderful merchandising as always!

  2. I am super psyched about coming out to see you even though I know you'll be at the Junior Leaque show, just might have to stop there too, if I have time to make all the rounds that I have planned!

  3. Your stuff is beautiful. I wanted to come so bad, but couldn't make it. I'm hoping I can set up at it next year with my vintage jewelry.

  4. I hate it that we missed going to HICO to see you at Homestead's Show. Glad you did well. Hope to come down for the Open House but, I do have company(I think they will leave by then). Have a great weekend.

  5. DANG, I wish I lived closer! That display of frames is just to die for as is EVERY other thing on your blog!
