When I first started selling antiques in the 90's, we all kept secrets from each other. You know what I'm talking about. We'd find a wonderful source (not the curb, in this case) and we would get our goodies there and never tell a soul where we got 'em. Then one day, our source was gone. Quit. Closed down. Know why? No business. We, alone, were the only one shopping with them!
I see absolutely no reason not to share good stores with you, my friends. Sure, one day you might pick up something I'd have liked. But, those stores and those good people will still be there, due to good business, the next time I wanna go visit! It's a win/win situation.
The post below this one is for Ethel's in Tyler. Some folks commented that they will check her out. I am thrilled for her and for the buyers! I, alone, cannot pay Ethel's rent and bills.
Do y'all know Rodney White, the artist? You ought to. I emailed him in September of the year Two Thousand and Seven. Bless his heart, he emailed me back today. Check out his gallery on his website here. And he also has a blog here. Cool stuff! I am not about to copy and paste his artwork. I might have to pay him a royalty or something. Once you've seen his stuff, you'll just love him like I do! Talent out the wazoo.
And that, my blogging friends, is all my sharing for today.
