Just back from a little family Mom was visiting for awhile and we hit the Fredericksburg Trade Days for some great 'fleaing' with the kids.  We scored lots of great old shutters, doors, window panes, statues and architectural pieces. After that we revamped our space at the antique mall. And when that was done, we took the kids and headed to San Antonio for a girls -get-away with my Grandmother and Aunt, who were visiting from Colorado.  It was such a great time, yet it feels like it was over in the blink of an eye. We stayed at the J.W. Marriott which is this amazing water park within a hotel.  Sea World and Knotts Berry Farm are minutes away but we couldn't pull ourselves out of the pool long enough to was the best of everything for the whole family!  Highly recommend :)  Anyhow, back to shop talk!

Here is what the space looked like when we first opened back in April:

Our first day. I was so proud-and a little exhausted!
We are down to our last two pairs of wings....act fast!

Loved this hutch, French Grey with a glaze-Sold.

And here is what the space looks like as of now:

Sorry for the blurry pic-only had my iphone.
I'll be getting back to some furniture make-overs in the next post.  A few of them are in the above pic, peeking out :) And I am almost done with my first upholstery project too, if I can get over my fear of the glue gun!  I've come so far with these chairs that this last step is a bit intimidating.  For now I'm gonna take a few days to do nothing-then I'll unpack us, and get back to business.  It appears I've got an apprentice in the making as well ;)  My daughter recently refurbished this side table for herself (with face mask, shower cap, gloves and ALL the protective gear carefully removed for this photo opp)  I don't know who was more proud, me or her!!
Till next time :)


  1. Your booth is very enticing and welcoming. And you should be so proud of your daughter. These are skills that she will keep with her the rest of her life...thanks to you!

  2. Hi!

    Do you have any wings left and how much are they, I just love them!!


  3. Hi Cindy,
    The wings are sold as a pair for $225, we have one pair left in the store at The Antique Gallery of Round Rock, 1601 South I-35, Round Rock, TX
    They don't do shipping unfortunately so would have to be picked up in person.
    Thanks for the inquiry!
