Monday at the Mall

  Just a few of the things in the Booth today that we think are pretty cool ....
this rusty old stool almost found a home in my kitchen...

this great old mirror ...and lots of books as usual

lots of new banner phrases...for grads, mommies to be, and newlyweds... And we recently added a bunch of mason jars...

we always have a couple kitchen scales and old windows in the booth... and this 15th Street sign is cool

 
Have a Happy Monday!

Here Come the Brides...

Wedding season is around the corner.  The Brides are out strong. We saw several Mother-of-the-Brides scooping up good stuff for reception d├ęcor....


We decided to honor all the spring and summer brides with our window display this month.

With a bit of a "twist",  our fictional B58 couple is getting hitched on the beach....  A vintage destination wedding!  Silver, Pearls, and Seashells...

Guess who has a birthday???

Booth 58 turns 4 today! 

 
We are excited to celebrate 4 great years of our little business.  Hard to believe it was only 4 years ago that on a whim Mom and Dad and I decided to jump in... head first!  Little did we know all the good things that would come.... good people especially.

 I wrote a short summary of our story here two years ago... Since then, our booth has grown and we continue to have a blast together. 

"And Many More....."

We've created a new B58 Banner to add to our collection....Come by soon for its debut!  It's perfect for  your next celebration....  We had plans to have them ready for our birthday, but we have been out junkin' too much to stay home and get them made!

All for you.....

We dug through piles and piles... 















Loaded our junkin' wagons...and unloaded them several times.....


























Cleaned up all of the treasures....


Found the perfect spot for each new item in Booth 58....

All so that you can find the perfect thing for that spot at home!
 
Come by soon to see what we brought in from Roundtop and several other recent trips

It's Black and White

I recently bought a bundle of old black and white photos.  All the scenes include the same family with their beloved pets and new automobile from the turn of the century.  Mom and I love looking at them imagining their story....


 We like to tuck black and white photos throughout our store vignettes.  For some reason, they add something to the scenes we set up with our old junk... a softness... a realness... a story.... 

Some of the pictures that we use are our own old family photos...from my grandparents' era.  When we fluff the booth and move things around, they make us smile and chuckle a little as we move Grandmother Theodosia or Uncle Park from spot to spot... They seem to smile back at us and say, "this is fun...isn't it?"

Even though we don't know the full story behind all these pictures, there is a story.  It makes us happy to think these folks' stories live on..... in the midst of our funny Booth 58 junk.... History in black and white...

Monday at the Mall

Make plans to join us next Saturday, April 12th in Downtown McKinney for Arts in Bloom 2014...


 More than 150 local and regional artists showcase their talents, lining the streets and store fronts throughout the twelve-block downtown area.

I'm eager to see the Chalk Walk: Sidewalks spring to life with color and creativity when artists' imaginations run wild at Chalk Walk on the sidewalks surrounding McKinney Performing Arts Center. 

Stop by Antique Company Mall too.... There is always something new to see!  We plan to change  out our window display this week to welcome you Art Walkers.

Happy Monday!

March Days

Hello this Thursday.  I love March... but it can be confusing... is it spring or winter?
 Still not ready to pack away the sweaters... but the flip flops aren't too far away.

 
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade." 
Charles Dickens
