Upcoming Event: Texas Antique Shows

Pin It

If you are not at the Texas Antique shows this weekend, you should be! It's mile after mile, town after town of junking goodness! I sooooo wish I could be there this year!!





If you're close and need a little incentive, I have 59 reasons that you should hop in your car truck van moving van and go. Sit back and enjoy dozens of photos of my last trip there in 2009. Just hit the play button!


If that's not enough, here are some goodies found there...

Vintage Metal Lab Stand
Doesn't it look great with some flower pots added?

Porcelain Knobs & Pocket Watch
The perfect filler for one of those flower pots.

Stamp Holder & Stamps
Are your ideas flowing for how to repurpose this stamp holder?

U.S. Medical Cot/Mattress Covers
I don't know if these are official, but they are absolutely wonderful!

Ship's Keys & Fobs
I think this is one my favorite finds ever! Labeled leather fobs...each with a key ring and key.

Enamelware Tray
I stacked it atop my other one in the master bath.


Cricket Mallet
Something about it spoke to me. I know nothing about the game!
Don't you love the markings? *sigh*

Metal Medical Stool
It found its perfect home in the entry way.


Texas is full of great junk and even greater junkers! Love all y'all in Texas!! Bless your junkin' hearts! :)
