Our junk pumpin (Morgan and Paige helped)

Here are a few shots from this year's Super Saturday in Cherokee. We didn't have as big of crowd as we did last year, but we all had a good time and made the best of it!

This wicker bassonette is wonderful.

Great zebra hide

I have commited to a space at the Texas Presentations Antique Show in Fredericksburg on November 14 & 15. I haven't ever been to this show. Have any of you? I'm a bit nervous after yesterday's crowd. I plan on making Texas star ornaments and cater to the tourists. Maybe the smalls will pull me through! If you are in that area, be sure and come see us. Also, November 7th is the city wide sale in Lampasas on the courthouse square. We have found this to be a good place to buy and sell. Maybe we'll see you there. Soon.....Susan

Isn't she just gorgeous!

She was my big purchase at the auction. The little lady told me she (the mannequin) was in a display window downtown (Brownwood) when she was a teenager. Years later she bought her at an auction. She's so lovely and graceful.

Look at those sexy legs! She stands approx 30"tall.

But darn, she's missing an arm!
The hat she's dressed with covers up the amputation quite gracefully.
As much as I would love to keep her, she is for sale. If interest just send me an e-mail


Andy hit a fantastic auction this weekend. After 3 pick-up and one trailer load, we finally just had to call it quits. His favorite thing is to purchase the contents of out buildings. You never know what you're gonna end up with. Most of the time it's a home run! He was just so tired and worn out, we left quite a bit behind. This sign is one of many items he snatched. Stay tuned for more photos, I haven't even seen all of it yet.

Meet my friend Cynthia. Back in the early 70's she and her husband ordered matching custom boots from Ray Jones in Lampasas, TX. She has worn them only a few times. We (the girls at work) have finally convinced her to drag them out and wear them. She found them in the top of her closet still in the original box. Doesn't she look great!
Here's a closer look. Soon....Susan

Home safe and sound

Well, it was a hard weekend, but we got it done. After the 5" or more of rain it was definitely LOAD time. Andy left out on Friday so he and Colt could attend the annual Boot and Saddle Makers Round up in Wichita Falls. He took one trailer load home with him. After slashing prices, I moved a lot of merchandise and was able to get it all packed up. We went with 4 pick-up and trailer loads and came home with just 2. YES 2. I think that means we did well. I'm off to work on the pile of stuff we dumped in the floor! Soon.....Susan
