Santa's Last Stop

We saw one of Santa's reindeer hanging out with the fellows on our last junkin trip. 

 Word on the street is that Santa makes one last stop at Antique Company Mall and Booth 58 before Christmas Eve.

Make sure he knows what is on your list!

The gift of "Remember When"

 Are you down to the last few people on your list by now? 
Think about giving the gift of "Remember When..."

Buy something that will remind someone of a special memory .... or a special someone.  Something that would make someone say:
 "Grandma had one just like this!" or
 "Remember when we used to play with these?"  or
"This makes me think of the time when Dad....."

By giving vintage, you aren't just giving an item... You are giving a memory. 

 Keep your eyes open while you shop ACM and the perfect gift will jump right out at you.  Who can you give a "Remember When" to this year?

Are we merry yet?

Hey B58 Friends!  We hope you are embracing the Christmas season fully by now.

 Take a break from the shopping frenzy and lines in all the big box stores.  Head up to Downtown McKinney for an extra old fashioned jolt of Christmas this week.

 Stroll the sidewalks, window shop the charming displays, gobble up some delicious eats.  Take in all the merry  that our favorite downtown has to offer.  You will be glad you did!

Choose and Cut

Our latest window display was one that Mom and I have been dreaming up for a while now.  We found a stack of old rusty saws recently, and our idea was born.... Choose and Cut...

Cutting down our tree each year was a highlight growing up.  We always visited the same tree farm run by the sweetest German couple.  After much debate, we'd finally decide on the perfect tree (Mom always got the final vote).   My brother and I really just wanted to run up and down the rows of trees the whole time.

 My blog posts are a little old.... We just changed out our window already last night.  I'll update you with the new look soon....

Best Start to Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving from Booth 58

Eat an extra helping for us and then waddle on up to McKinney for Home for the Holidays this weekend.

The Little Things

Many of the finds we snag out  junkin' are never seen by our Booth 58 shoppers. 
Isn't it always the littlest things that bring you the biggest joy?
 Big Brother has become the family baker.  My plastic measuring spoons have given him some trouble since the measurements have worn off.  I found this vintage set this fall.... He thinks he's the Iron Chef now...
 little thing... big joy
Found this doorstop... perfect for my annoying pantry door...and for Sister who loves kitties.  No real felines here due to allergies... but these cuties make her smile.
little thing... big joy

In September, Dad took Little Mr. 58 "to look for treasures" while Mom and I were neck deep in some shopping.  They came back with smiles from ear to ear.  This Ziploc bag full of legos made that little guy's day.  And Granddaddy was the hero "treasure hunter"...
little thing...big joy

Thanksgiving Always

I love Thanksgiving... I love the everything that leads up to Thanksgiving...  November is bliss!

The retail world doesn't embrace Thanksgiving quite like I wish it did.  The ceramic turkeys, fall foliage, and "Give Thanks" are mostly gone from shelves now making room for Santa, poinsettias, and "Be Merry."

I want to make sure our day-in-and-day-out lives are decorated with Thanksgiving.  Not the kind of décor that you can pick up at Target... But the decorations that come from our mouths and are seen on our faces...

"Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."  Ephesians 5:20

No Tricks...Just Treats at Scare on the Square this Friday!

Make sure you come up to McKinney Downtown for Scare on the Square THIS FRIDAY! 

We always costume up and join tons of other McKinney folks for this safe and secure family event.  As a mama who isn't a big fan of scary Halloween, this is the perfect venue.

 Lots of candy and lots of people watching.
My Mermaid, Ninja, and Batman take a candy break to check out Booth 58

 It wouldn't be Halloween without Scare on the Square for our gang!

Mustard in the Window

Moved some things around recently.  Put this mustard colored buffet in the window.

 I'm a big fan of this little piece.  It adds the perfect pop of color to any small space.  We think it looks rather welcoming for fall.

Pinterest Fail

I poke around Pinterest some.  A great place to get some inspiration... or a great place to get some laughs.

I stumbled across a pin that showed bleached pinecones...

We decided to follow the directions on the link and bleach up some too.  They suggested soaking the pinecones for a few hours.

After 3 DAYS, the pinecones still weren't what Pinterest promised.  More gray than white.

Oh well.  Great lesson in "You can't believe everything you see on Pinterest."

Naturally Fall

Natural elements are always the perfect fall decorations.

 Pinecones, wheat bunches, bright leaves, antlers, and seed pods are a few we have added to Booth 58.  What can you add to your home this season to say "Welcome Fall?"

Hello October

 Yay for October!  Lots of fun to come this month.  Booth 58 is full of new fall items. 

 Hurry in before Christmas takes over!
