Make it Merry Tip of the Day

Before you head up to Home for the Holidays, are you pulling out all the Christmas boxes?  Have you put up the tree yet?  Have you been dreading it?  How about Making it Merry this year by keeping things a bit more simple than you did last year?
Make it Merry Tip of the Day: Christmas Balls in Ball Jars

A pretty pop of color in an unexpected vessel... an old ball jar.  Festive.  Simple.
We think a grouping of different shaped jars like these are pretty.  We are even selling some of our jars already filled with balls.  And we also have some individual vintage balls.
Tip of the Day Checklist for Booth58 Shopping:
Ball Jars of many sizes
vintage Christmas balls
 Remember:  Simple is great!

Enjoying His Goodness Today...
Much Love from the Booth 58 Family

Leftovers anyone?

 The turkey is still frozen in the fridge, but I am already salivating thinking about it.  Anyone else's mouth watering thinking about eatin' some good food this week?

How many times can you eat leftover Thanksgiving dinner?  One, Two, Three times? 

I've heard two different takes on leftovers recently... "Leftovers are the best part.".... and..."No thank you...once is more than enough for me."
By Friday or Saturday afternoon, will you be ready to taste something new? 
We have just the thing for you....

And new tastes of the season are just part of the fun! 
Make plans Friday or Saturday to come up to McKinney ... and plan to stop by Antique Company Mall while you are up.  Booth 58 is filled to the brim!

We snagged these two old McKinney street signs on our most recent junkin' trip.  They will be the perfect Christmas gift this year for someone who calls McKinney home!

Make it Merry Tip of the Day

Make it Merry Tip of the Day: Unique Package Ties
Add a little more "merry" to your gifts this year by adding something unique to your packages.   The wrapping can be just as amazing as the gift itself! Mom's Christmas wrapping is always part of the treat.
Just a few pretty examples:

Add a bit of nature with a pinecone, piece of evergreen, or feather.

Add a bit of shiny with an German glass glittered snowflake ornament

Add a key to your package tie... A unique one-of-a-kind extra.

My personal favorite: a piece of silver plate - a spoon, fork, or knife... Sometimes Mom finds engraved pieces with the special someone's initial.  Such a sweet addition to a package.
Booth 58 has lots of options to help you make your gifts feel that little extra love.
Tip of the Day Checklist for Booth58 Shopping:
German glass glittered snowflakes
rusty keys
silver plate pieces
other various ornaments

Bundled Up for You

We've done a lot of junkin' over the past 4 1/2 years for Booth 58.   In Texas, we spend most of the year braving the heat, but this wasn't the case last week.  Friday, we traded our sunscreen for our gloves.  All bundled up, we headed out to dig for cool treasures for you.  And we didn't come home empty handed! 

After defrosting a bit and warming up with a hot bowl of soup, we added some new handmade goodies to the booth..... just in time for a busy shopping weekend at the ACM! 

Happy Monday .... Stay Warm

What are you doing today?  How about this weekend?  Make a trip up to see what all the fuss is about up here in Downtown McKinnney... you won't be disappointed!

Winter Whimsy

Remember when I talked about adding a little "whimsy" to your d├ęcor back in the fall?
Booth 58 is full of whimsy this wintery season...   
Look for small items that are playfully quaint... things that make you look twice!  
What "whimsy" can you add to your Christmas collection this year?

 We think he is kind of fun ...pokin' out of the corner in the front window... like he is watching you as you window shop.

Going, Going...

GONE!  Fall is gone from Booth 58...  Just when fall finally arrived here in Texas, there are few signs of it in the shop.  
We headed up to the mall early Saturday morning to move Christmas in.  With Scare on the Square behind us, the pumpkins have left the building... and the tinsel has set up shop.  Lots of fellow ACM vendors had the same idea ... Christmas is here, friends!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
PS - We still have Thanksgiving bits and pieces in Booth 58.  Our Give Thanks banners and a handful of turkeys can still be spotted if you look close!
