Texas Antique Weekend: Fri., April 3, 2009, Part 2

Pin It
My last day of Texas Antique Weekend ended like this...

EXCESS FIELD

I had time for one stop at the Excess Field in Warrenton. This is what drew me in...




And here's Clark Gauthier of Barn Boy Antiques. This is all his great stuff! He is out of Grand Island, Nebraska, but sets up here every year...right under the Excess sign. A MUST visit for any hardcore junker!!



THE OTHER SIDE OF WARRENTON

Beyond Excess and beyond Zapp Hall are a kazillion (yes, I counted!) more fab vendors. All you can see is tents, tents, tents.



JILL@JILLSUZANNE.COM

What can I say...her booth draws you in like a magnet!


And here she is...the beautiful Suzanne!...


Aren't her business cards beautiful?...


And here she is with her sweet cowboy husband...

She was wearing this amazing necklace...


Great idea for old sheet music...


Great Clark's spool storage piece...


Hat pins!!...




MYLISSA'S GARDEN ANTIQUES

I didn't see any flowers at Mylissa's booth, but here is what was growing! Holy moly, right? If you like smalls, you've got to experience Mylissa's place!







Mylissa (photo below) & her husband Dennis run this booth. They are out of Arkansas City, Kansas. If you can't find it at their booth, it probably doesn't exist!


A FEW MISCELLANEOUS SHOTS AT ROUND TOP



Well, that wraps up the final post of my trip to the Spring 2009 Texas Antique Weekend. I hope you enjoyed the tour! My recommendation? Get it on your calendar for next fall or next spring. The experience in person is such an adventure!

  1. Girl, you must have been pickin' 'em up and layin' 'em down to cover as much as you did. I'm tired just looking at all the shows you managed to hit in such a short time!
    If you think Mylissa has a lot at Warrenton, you ought to see her store in Arkansas City...Holy Moly Indeed!!!
    Thank you for being such a wonderful friend! I am one lucky little fat girl!
