The Tour Continues

I'm going to conclude my Central Texas Antiquing tour today with multiple stops, all over the map.
I learned a lot about documenting this type of thing, like, Take a picture of the sign when you go in a store, then take a picture of everything you bought just before leaving. Because it is impossible to remember a week or even a couple of days later. :) That said, I'm going to post some pictures from several different stores, and there is a list at the bottom. the truth is I can't seem to remember which pictures are of which store.
The picture above is from a store pretty close to my home, and on Hwy 31, Just drive s on 31 from Tyler through Chandler and you can't miss it. It's either Wagon Wheel in Murchison, or Lindy in Malakoff.

I loved the color of this table, and how it looked with the bed

The pictures above are of a coffee table made out of an old wheat thrasher. Good thing it has that glass top on it. Those blades look dangerous.

This is an interesting way to display gloves and hankies.

I love different ways to use old locker baskets

and bird cages

Here's some of what I got, see something you like? It's probably for sale.

Love these French flash cards.
here's the list of stores
Wagon Wheel, in Murchison TX
2nd Street Emporium, Temple TX
Rough & Ready, Georgetown
Cobblestone Upstairs Downstairs, Georgetown, TX
If you are ever in these cities, be sure to stop by.
Lessons Learned.
1) It doesn't matter how cute my new bag is, it's a hassle to carry. Use Hip Bag instead. Leave cute bag in the car.
2)I already mentioned the picture taking strategy
3) Leave Husband behind (sorry dear)

Looks like you had a great time. I have to agree with the last suggestion, well sometimes. My honey does like junk as much as I as long as they have what he's looking for, old toy, bikes, etc. So when they don't he's bored and ready to go. The tags I think were from Rough and Ready in Georgetown, I bought some real similar.

I love the bed! I want one of those so bad! Are those letterpress letters any B's, L's or M's?

I love that table with the blades, that was clever. I would be afraid to own it though. I like the way they are hanging the hankies and gloves too. That is different.
Love the green table and the old tins. It all is a great collection of things.
I wear an ugly old fanny pack when I shop. It might not be pretty but it keeps my hands free. I don't mind hubby coming along but he does tend to look and be ready to go, before I am.

Hubby has a long weekend coming up and I'm hoping we can take a drive into N Carolina for a good ol' junkin' trip. Wish me luck!
