(On a side note: I have been blogging for over a year now, and I know I am supposed to use my camera and make you feel a part of the adventure. But, I didn't use my camera on the trip. I'll try and write really well today to make up for no pics.)
Back to the story...So, we drove to Waco without even one stop. We visited with Troy and Rod and put a small dent in their inventory. Here's a pic (after the fact) of some of my goodies.
You might know, there are a lot of great places to shop in Waco. We had discussed going to those places. But, a lady diverted us with stories of wonderful antiques in Hubbard, Texas. We head that direction, with excitement in our hearts.
The first place we hit had some lovely items. And then a bee or wasp or demon from you-know-where bit, stung, left it's mark on my hand. Did I mention it hurt? Mayron and the shop lady asked what they could do for me and I told them to pour on the sympathy cuz I was hurting!
Next stop? A lovely antique mall in Hubbard. And would you believe? I spotted Daphne's goodies! Daphne is a dealer at Winnie & Tulula's. Apparently, she is a franchise. Great stuff. Anywho...yes, I put a small dent in their inventory, too.
Then, on to Malakoff. Lillie of Winnie & Tulula's has a shop in Malakoff called Junk Palace, and she is closing the doors of business there. Do you know what that means? Sale! I love sales. Don't you? Yes. My hand still hurt. But, it was a nice salve, the great, sale prices.
My favorite purchase from Lillie? This kick booty, love it, love it, love it desk from the Cisco, Texas depot. Not the Home Depot. The train depot. History. Gotta love it.
Green, turned legs. Be still my heart. I had just the place for it in my very own home. I thought. But, it doesn't work. Dad gummit. This might have hurt more than the insect incident. It is now for sale at Primitiques. Come and get it and love it!
Saturday night was Date Night. Yee haw! Time with my honey. Now that was a great Saturday!
