Hey, Y'all! Well, I can now say I've done a show at Zapp Hall Antiques Show and it was nothing short of INCREDIBLE!!
Being the storyteller I am, I like to come up with a story for every show we set up at. For Zapp, I imagined an old forgotten garden shed full of decades of interesting items--Victorian whimsies to white chippy tables and chairs. I even began a secret Pinterest board to collect images of what I had in mind. Finally, the day came to load up for this most important antiques show. I felt as nervous as a kid on the first day of school, but as we unloaded and began to fill our booth the jitters went away and the story unfolded. 

Opening day was a swirl of customers, new friends, and lots of stuff going out the door. A lovely California couple purchased this pink screen door and 

white columns to use in their booth at Remnants of the Past Vintage Show. A nice man purchased our old bicycle because he had one similar to it as a kid. Great stories for this storyteller

This awesome lady went home with Lori of Timeless Menagerie in Fredericksburg. 

What I kept hearing from customers was how enchanting and magical Zapp Hall looked. It was true! Wisps of muslin draped from the rafters and accented with thousands of lights looked like a Texas star filled night. 
Incredible finds and abundant inspiration seeped through the entire building from Maggie's space

to Deb and Cat Daddy's

 to Joel's

to Steven and Eileen's 
and Chuck, Vida, and Cathy's 

and all points in between--

And this was just inside Zapp Hall. Of course, there were bountiful treasures all over at Zapp Hall Antiques Show and beyond! 

A GIGANTIC THANKS to everyone who came out and especially to friends who stopped by our booth to visit. 

I'll be taking a break from doing vintage markets until JUNK HIPPY Roadshow at Round Top in July. However, I'll be keeping our GARDEN CAT booth at Hermann Antique Mall in Brenham, TX filled with fresh finds and pretties. 

In addition, I'll be preparing our home for a month of celebrations in May as our kids have BIG birthdays coming up, as well as PROM and GRADUATION for our SWEET GIRL.  
Until next time,
Peace, love, and all 
the good stuff, sweet friends.
