Hey, Y'all! 
We're just back from JUNK Hippy ROADSHOW WACO where we had a GREAT time selling, buying, and visitin' with lots of other fabulous vendors, customers, and JUNKERS, including the good folks from Junk Exchange, Junk Palace, Paper and Lace, Texas Trash and Treasures, Flash and Trash, and Fiddlesticks Emporium of Elgin to name but a few of the inspiring vendors there. Thanks to Kristen and Shawn for bringing their awesome JUNK Hippy ROADSHOW to Waco! 
A special shout-out also to my sweet Momma for working so hard and helping out. Thanks, MoM!! :D
Paper and Lace always has beautiful vignettes 
and needful things.
Fiddlesticks of Elgin brought lots of funky vintage items.
I was pleasantly surprised to look up and see 
this beautiful lady, Holli Schmitz Myers, one of 
my sweet Facebook and Blog friends.
 It was awesome to get to finally meet her in person!

Here's a few peeks at our Garden Cat Vintage booth at JUNK Hippy. 

I thought it was most appropriate that after we got all packed up, I looked down and saw this...sparkly Garden Cat tag
That's my new mantra, 
"always leave a trail of glitter"...
Until next time,
Peace, love, and all the
 good stuff, sweet friends!

This old canning ring full of mason jars of fresh roses 
was one of the first things we sold Friday night.
Hey, Y'all! We're just back from the Rusted Gingham Barn Sale in Gonzales, TX where there was an abundance of creative, handmade, vintage, and antique items all under one big metal roof! We had a lot of FUN visiting with many old friends and making new friends. THANKS to Suzanne and her team for putting on such a wonderful show and transforming the barn into a market full of great goods, beauty, and inspiration!
Here's a few peeks at what 
Garden Cat Vintage had for sell.

Florals, crazi quilts, and velvet...oh, my!

All kinds of JUNK for sale!

Fun with pink petticoats!
The vintage insulators with battery tea lights were a big hit.

Somehow I managed to collect several vintage hat boxes--love the patterns!
This little princess found a new home Friday evening. 
She has the sweetest little face.
