At Home with Booth 58 - Issue 2

Hello, my name is Elizabeth, and I am a plate addict.  I have inherited my plate addiction from Mom.  She inherited it from her mom.  Scientists are working on the genetic mapping for this disease right now.
A corner in Mom's dining room
It began for me with my first apartment in college.  We hung three small transferware dessert plates next to my twin bed... And my dear roommates watched and wondered "What is up with the plates?"

Then, I got married and began making my newlywed nest a home.  On move-in day, Mom and I promptly hung several plates on my red dining room wall... then three platters along the kitchen wall.   And my sweet Hubby watched and wondered "What is up with the plates?"

My master bedroom plate wall
As I started making this home my own, my first big project was to hang 15 transferware pieces over the headboard of my bed.  And then I continued on in Sister's girly vintage room with there china dinner plates hung over her desk with pink satin ribbon.  And my sweet girl watched and wondered "Mama, What is up with the plates?"  Chances are, she too has inherited this trait.
Sister's nursery ... She didn't have a chance...

Another cozy corner at Mom's ... and she couldn't help but add a couple of plates.
You too could be at risk for developing this addiction.  If you aren't quite at the "hanging plates on the walls" stage yet... there is still hope for you.  But watch out... it will sneak up on you, and before you know it, you will be hearing the same words from your loved ones..."What is up with the plates?"

Mom's red and white guest room
 Just remember:
When in doubt, put a plate on it

New Things

A couple new things in the booth....

Mr. and Mrs. 58 brought in this beautiful chest straight from their own bedroom.... It is a great piece that has been well taken care of.  Now it is lonely and needs a new home!

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun... We hope!

 Booth 58's latest window display.... waiting for the sunshine!

 We have gotten our fair share of winter in North Texas.  Us Texans aren't good "winterers".  We are ready for the sun.
We even went junkin in the snow for you all last week.... A first for us!!!  Our trip was very different from every other time we have been on a huntin' trip. 
 The vendors were far and few between.... and there was snow on the ground....but that didn't stop us.  We came home with lots of great treasures.

At Home with Booth 58 - Issue 1

As we welcome you into our homes with this series At Home with Booth 58 it seems appropriate to reintroduce ourselves..... 

We are Peggy and John and Elizabeth...
Peggy and John are "Mom and Dad" aka "Mrs. and Mr. 58" and they live in Central Texas most of the time...when they aren't in McKinney at the Antique Company Mall. 
I am Elizabeth - "the Daughter".... the one who does the posting here.  I live in Fairview (just 8 minutes away from Downtown McKinney) with Hubby (Sean) and three little ones (Big Brother, Sister, and Little Mr. 58). 

We've been at this Booth 58 gig for almost 5 years now...and still lovin' it.  So many blessings have come out of this little "whim" .... amazing people and places and stuff!

So, speaking of stuff.... onto the "meat" of our first issue... 
Architectural Pieces

 Does the phrase architectural pieces make you think of  Greek columns and ornate statutes?  Remember, we are JUNK dealers... so think more along the lines of crusty old doors, windows, and ladders.

My home has tall ceilings in the main living areas... much like many of the two story homes here in the Metroplex.  Tall ceilings need tall stuff.  Instead of going with large wall art, I  used vintage architectural pieces ... shutters, ladders, stair railings, and decorative corner pieces.  All of these add a nice texture and they can be great conversation starters too... "What is behind those doors?" and "Did you forget to put your ladder away?"

We try to keep a stash of shutters, doors, and ladders in the booth.  Right now, we have several white shutters and black screen doors.  

In our next issue of At Home with Booth 58, I promise to highlight some of Mom and Dad's cozy house.
