Monday at the Mall

Big Brother will be the "new kid" today on his first day of school at a new school.  He is excited ... I'm a little bit anxious... All you mamas out there know that feeling - right?

To honor all you "new kids" today on this Day One of another school year, I want to highlight a "new kid" in the center aisle of ACM....

Great look!  Love what you have done with your space already.

Happy 1st Monday of School at the Mall!  Here's to being the "new kid!"

Fall is here...

Fall is officially here.. in the retail world at least.  After Mom and I decked the Booth out for fall, I was ready to come home and do the same... Then I realized August is just too soon.  The neighbors will think I've gone nuts.

Sis-in-law surprised Mom and me with a "Happy Early Fall" goody last week... so fun!
 I think I will enjoy my soap over the next month as I anticipate the rest of the pumpkin brigade!  I don't think the neighbors will even notice.

Monday at the Mall

Seeing lots of Fall at the Mall this Monday!  Every day more and more fall is appearing... come see!

This is our "58" take on the back half of the booth... silver and burlap galore! 

Don't forget to look in the glass display cases

Come back by the blog later this week to see what else we've done to say
"Hello Fall!"  We are ready!!!

What's new?

A few new things we put in Booth 58 recently:
 Some new framed prints... some owls and some other vintage images... like these french chairs

Some more books... Some bundled together...
(we were inspired by Pottery barn below...ours are much cheaper!)

Mom found these old printers' numbers... perfect for our back to school theme.

Monday at the Mall

It is almost a new school year.... Lots of new stuff coming our way... new clothes... new teachers... new freinds.  The school bells can't be heard at ACM... but that doesn't mean there aren't new things happening here too!  I noticed several new vendors downstairs at ACM this week...

Martha recently set the tone for fall in Antique Company Mall when she got to expand her booth in the center aisle.  I've always admired her look and today as her space is doubled, it looks as good as ever... along with the touches of fall - which we all are eagerly anticipating her in North Texas!
 I noticed a few new vendors in the back left corner of the store.  They look great!
 And here is our old Booth 58 corner... Mom got to visit with the 4 girlfriends who are making this their new home.  We love the way they painted the brick wall.  Now, we can't wait to see what they fill the cute spot with.

Heading to the farm to spend a few last summer moments with the Booth 58 Cousins down there.  We have plans to bring fall to our space when we return at then end of the week.  Can't wait to pull out our pumpkins... We are ready for something new ... aren't you?

Here comes the bride

We've been meeting lots of young brides in ACM over the past year... all coming in looking for special one-of-a-kind pieces for their weddings... Mom helped several sweet girls this past weekend as they picked out things for their receptions.  One bought a typewriter, another couple bought old boxes and a chalkboard, and another mason jars.  Mom sold her "Oh Happy Day" banner to another blushing bride. 
All this talk of vintage weddings sent me out looking to see more about this trend... Here are a few of the things I found:

Great site for wedding ideas!  ""  This glamorous barn wedding was beautiful.
Love the cake on the old crate.... Clever!
Found this image here...  the mason jars are so pretty with tea lights.. elegant.

Sharpen your pencils

Don't you love fresh new pencils?

So Long Summer... almost

Well, the count down to the end of summer is on.  Can't believe it has already flown by.  We're planning to squeeze as much into these final weeks as we possibly can!

My family is on our way to spend a weekend on the lake with more family.  We have our bags packed and we are hitting the road.

Here is a Booth 58 So Long Summer Special ...  our homemade canvas Destination McKinney Tote ... Sport the compass directions for Downtown Mckinney all year long! 

Happy Counting Down!
