Can someone give me a hand?



Yes, I know it’s been weeks since my last post, but it couldn’t be helped...I’ve been attending gift markets!! And, you know what that means...new stuff!! Tons of cool new things, like the antique glove molds pictured above. They are large, ceramic, mounted to a metal rack, and they are mine! The photo from my i-phone is terrible but they are such fun and quite the conversation piece! I can't wait for you to see them!

This Spring will offer lots of fabulous things and the unveiling will be an event! I've been planning the Spring displays since September. Subsequently, I’ve been scouring flea markets and sales for months now, slowly gathering just the right antiques and bone structure, I get goose bumps everytime I walk into the warehouse!

The fabulous finds were already stretching the walls of the warehouse to maximum capacity before the trucks began arriving this week, all with BIG deliveries! So many deliveries have been arriving, and so many more are slated for next week, that I've had to secure another facility for the overload!! It's only temporary, just until the Spring unveiling....I can hardly wait!

This is my favorite part of this business, opening everything when it comes in, finally seeing how it all works together. I’m very pleased, and it’s so hard not to share...but I’ll wait...just a little longer!

Be ready! Because this Spring we are planning a very special event to reveal the new goodies...very special! I will share all the details with you over the next couple days. Until then...focus on February 20!!

I stopped by to see you today on my way back from the Junk Palace grand opening in Malakoff. Sorry you weren't there. Sounds like you've been busy. You know how to find my extra hands if you need them. :-) Can't wait to see all your great new stuff! How's the grandbaby?
Blessings!

I gotta smile! I know exactly how you be feeling...in Houston we have what is called an "inventory tax" so we have to wait to bring in new product until after the 1st of the year. We stop ordering in mid/late October and can't bring anything new in until after Christmas. Now all of a sudden the first part of January is like an "over load" of stuff coming in along with new shopping...that you almost forget what you ordered! :)

It is fun...but, I also know as you do...that it is A LOT OF HARD labor to unpack, inventory, tag (the part I can't stand) and arranging (the fun part). Have fun and can't wait to see all your goodies.

One of these days, we need to talk about some of these shows down here in Houston...xo...deb

I was in Canton on 17th and missed you. Can't wait for 2/20 now! I know you found some treasures!
