Oh, sweet April!




Yikes! It's been weeks since my last post.....how time flies! Our time spent began with a buying trip at the pre-Roundtop show, I found some incredible pieces! Then we rolled in the Canton First Monday show which positively consumed us! In fact, it was the best April we've ever had, every show gets better and better! I've never seen a crowd like that at the Canton show....absolutely amazing! I'm certain the abundant sunshine and 70s temps had something to do with it! We were sold out of many things by Friday!

Another sweet surprise has been the popularity of the on-line store. It continues to grow every month and I hope to add more things this month. Most especially our lighting/lamps which have been so popular over the past couple of years!

This month marks our 4th year in this business....I can't believe how quickly we've grown in that short time, and continue to be astounded by the loyalty of our clients! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Oh man, was it ever crazy at Canton. We went on Friday and just could not get over how many people were there. Glad Round Top was good. Oh and the booth looked FAB btw (at Canton). Congrats on #4! Many more!

Congrats on all your shop success...I wish I lived closer...I was wondering if you wouldn't consider posting lamps on your site...I love both lamps shown on this post and would snatch them up quickly if for sale on line!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Congrats on your success with the on-line store. Love your blog and photos!

Yes, I know where Andrews is... I grew up in Alpine. We played Andrews in sports, and - well, when you live in Alpine you have to drive through Andrews if you're going anywhere north.
