BEFORE Pictures of my sweet Trailer

The following are 'BEFORE' pictures of the trailer I'm redoing to use at Flea Markets and Shows (a work in progress):

The process is slow due to the heat but the following are now gone:  mattress, stove, kitchen cabinets, table and benches, toilet, water tank to make as light as possible and make room for the items I will sell.  I will sell both inside and out but this will help when it rains as I don't do tents.  I caulked and hopefully have found all the water leaks then secured the ceilings.  I have added beadboard and trim and will start painting the interior next.  That leaves adding flooring (which I have picked out), painting the exterior (decided on aqua) then adding all the last minute details.  If everything goes as planned, I should be ready by September and plan to take it to Canton for its initial run.  I am looking forward to it and posting the AFTER pictures. So far, so good!

Gypsy Chicks Road Show Trailer

My little trailer is now stripped and I'm working on a plan with my daughter on design inside and out.  I'd like to use a lot of the items such as trim and decor that I already have which believe me is a lot.  My daughter would like a theme inside and out but I'm a little more eclectic.  I'm trying hard with the heat and all to stay hooked up and get it done so I can be ready for the Lavender Ridge Fall Festival Oct. 4-6 out in the boonies near Gainesville.  If you haven't ever been, mark your calenders and check out their website for more info.  Plus I've wanted to do the Fredericksburg Trade Days since my daughter took me there last year on vacation .  I'm aiming for October 18-20th.  Then the plan is to do Canton at Pavillion 6000 where I'm on a waiting list (fingers crossed).  Pictures and more info coming soon!

New Old Kenskill

Mom bought a new (old) trailer for flea marketing, antique shows, festivals, etc. It is a sweet, little vintage Kenskill. She is in the process of stripping the interior so there will be more pictures to come I am sure!
Cute, huh?
It looks like my job this summer will be to paint the exterior, which I have never done before. Shouldn't be too hard, right? ^_^;; If only it were as easy as Photoshop! Speaking of, I have made a few quick recolors to see if there is one she likes.
Kind of reminds me of Andy Warhol...
I tend to gravitate toward the mint green and the turquoise one. What do you think?

NEW Spring Sale!

I started our New Spring Sale at our 2 window booths on the 2nd Floor at Touch of Class Mall in Sherman, TX (the only 3 story mall around--open 7 days a week except major holidays).  Our current sale is 25% off old Radio Tubes and old Glass Lamp Shades which I have a ton of since I bought out an Estate.  If you happen to need radio tubes or an odd size lamp shade/globe and are near Sherman, check out our new sale.  (If you are a dealer and would like all tubes or globes, I'm open to an offer.)  I also have many old lamps and party dresses which are all priced to sell plus a shabby Lane cedar chest marked down to $75!  Plus LOTS, LOTS More!!  We need to downsize to make room for even more. 

P.S.  Our worst garage sale ever sold a LOT of junk much to our surprise, leaving only a pile to pack up and take to auction IF it ever quits raining...  More later.  Happy Hunting!!  Sheri & Angela

Vintage Radio Tubes - HAPPY HUNTING!!

I came across a big stash of vintage mixed size RADIO TUBES at an estate sale recently so I bagged them and took them to my primitive booth (left 2nd floor window) at Touch of Class in Sherman, TX.  I wanted to post this on my blog in case anyone who collects old radios and looking for parts might see this.  We have people ask for them at the booth from time to time.  My daughter has my camera so I'll post pictures later. 

I'm continuing my 25% off vintage lamps and lamp globes for now.  I have quite a few nice lamps and globes and they are priced to sell!  Plus I marked down my Mantle, Cedar Chest, Electric Logs Heater, 2 Tables, Pecans, Holiday items plus LOTS MORE!!  If you are in the area and like primitives, shabby chic and BARGAINS, we hope you'll check out our 3 booths.
