New Items for Sale In The Booths.....

My new headboard and wall decor.

I sold our bedroom suite on craigslist 2 months ago, and seen this style on Pinterest. I told my wonderful husband that I wanted this headboard, and dresser and he built it all. Of course, I LOVE decorating with antique windows.

This is over flow for my booths. It is in one of the other booths near mine. I have marked this Haywood bed down to make room. It will go fast, so hurry over, and get your neat, 1950's bed. It is all in excellent shape, and bed rails are attached to show you that it all works properly.

We had a vendor at the show that was selling only these antique malt mixers. I was so impressed with these. I think this booth did better than anyone there.  I am hoping that they will be back in January.

Trying to arrange the booths to get ready for the show.

We had 4 booths, and had to make 3 trips. If there would have been more booths, I could have brought more.

This is just a corner I made with my primitive signs, wreaths, and antique windows.

If you have not been able to attend the antique show in Conway Arkansas today, you do not want to miss tomorrow. It is amazing the items that are being sold! 

We have 9 states that are participating, and you can see any type of primitive, vintage, antique item that you can think of! I will be posting clips in the next 2 days to display what all we had.  Please come and see us at Conway Expo on Hwy 64.

Finally got a seat added to this garden bench. This is to sit in the flower bed to place plants, or grow a vine on. 

Hey folks, remember the old cabinet? 

I do not recommend this unless you have lots of time on your hands! And lots of patience!

Busy day in store for us around here. Show is in 3 days, and we still have around 10 items that are not ready. My oldest daughter is here and is helping.  So much to do, so little of time. But we do have a great time.

Well, I spent today painting, trying to restock my 2 booths in Cabot, at Flea Bitten Flea Market and Antiques. I started my inventory list for next weekend for the show. So tomorrow is MINE! I am getting out in my Model A, and taking a drive! Arkansas has the most beautiful land there is to cover. Here I come!!!

 Well, this day has ended. THANK YOU LORD! Here is my last projects. I love working on all of my items, but today, I was beginning to think, "let's go to bed, get up again, and try this again." 

I didn't get the barn wood put in the one on the bottom, but that's tomorrows agenda. It is an outdoor garden bench for your flower bed, or back porch. 

I have let this day get ALL out of wack so far! I am working on the antique beds, trying to prepare them, when mail runs. Forgot that I ordered these a month ago to make a table. So now I am side tracked! Beds are on hold. But that's not all.

My neighbor calls wanting to know if I have any shutters to close off her rooms. I tell her Yes. I go to the shop, pick them up, and they fall apart. They don't get the best of me! I cut them up and make a cabinet

Okay, so I got the beds that I bought,l welded today, so tomorrow I will get them painted and all dressed up, and a picture on here to show you. They look great. I decided to put a cushion in one, and make a garden bench out of the other. I have the hardest time getting rid of these when I make them! 

Some pieces you just want to throw your hands up, and say "Let's make a burn pile!" As much time as I am putting into this, no one will be able to afford it!

It has been raining off and on all day, so today, I went to the Dr., and have spent the rest of the day watching Netflix movies on TV. That is the best money we spend every month. I would turn Satelite off if Ken would agree. Nothing better than 40's and 50's movies all day.

I put a some buttons in below so that we could talk a spell. So pull up a chair and let me know what you have to say. My ears are always ringing for a good conversation. That is when folks has got some things important to 'em.

Here are two of my ice cream freezers that are just sitting on the porch, that the new one will fit perfect with. I really need to get rid of 2, but I love history.

Well, Cleaning up pieces, and working on getting them in shape for the show that is coming up the 19th and 20th. These 2 pieces are so pretty. Thankfully, these do not have a lot of scratches  and scuffs. 
 I met a couple in Branson that said that they had several windows from their family, but did not know what you could do with them. I went through old pictures of what either I did, or pictures I saved to make later, so that they could see. 

This is a Cabinet with shelves, that all your windows need to be cleaned to be same size.  These make great aquariums for indoor or outdoor.
 This window was found with no glass. Just frame. It had been in a fire. Frame was in pretty bad shape.  So I just put a flower box on the front, added some chain, painted it, and added my ivy.  This is a simple way if you have a window that is pretty bad shape.
 These Cabinets are great, because you can display your favorite heir looms, or flea market finds. Mine, I put legs on, and made it for the bathroom for toiletry items. But you need a large bath for that. 

 This is another one like it. It is just larger. This one is for outdoor. 

 This is another one that was without glass. So I put chicken wire on the back, and I use it in one of my booths for selling things. As you can see, right now my daughter has use of it for bows.
 The next two pictures are tables that are hinged so that you can store things. The one below is made for a coffee table. It is so you can put magazines, remotes, etc. inside and not lose them.  The one next to us here is just smaller.

This was a great bed that I found in a 
little antique mall in Branson. It is in 
great shape, and I have decided to not make a bed bench out of this one because it looks so great, and just set it up at my show this month like it is.

Old faithful metal beds. These were found with out metal bed rails.

 Bed Benches being made out of these.

I love Heywood Furniture. It reminds me of my aunt
in Levy Arkansas.  Her house was full of it. Aunt Inez babysat me, so I climbed on it all.

 Well, this is one group of my finds. More windows, crates, and a really neat metal roll cart. I loved  these. I think every family member of mine had one of these.
 This pile grew so big that I thought we would get to buy a new trailer to get it home. Inside this box is individually wrapped antique tea sets.
I just had to give you a closer look. Junk buy anytime that you can! I love cast irons, and #5 pails. I already have 2 of these 1920's ice cream hand cranks, but you can never get enough of them either.  Inside one of the white bags is 200 wooden spools of thread, and about 50-60 paper bobbins.

I would have turned my ole' cart wheels if I wasn't 50 lbs. heavier.

Thursday, May 3, 2012

I am heading out today, starting in Conway, and heading north, in search of those finds for my antique show. I plan on going all the way to the Missouri line. If you have a shop, I am coming your way. I will post my finds when I finish my journey. If you have nothing to do, there is some great Estate sales going on this weekend.
