Oktoberfest in McKinney

Oktoberfest in Mckinney is actually in September . The Antique Company Mall on E. Virginia is having a sidewalk and parking lot sale this weekend, the 27th. Just down the street from the square, this Mall has around 100 vendors. My booth is up the front stairs, third booth on the right(#1010c). I like to brag we have the best prices around.

If you are within driving distance, you should take a weekend roadtrip.
Yee Haw!

Door Knob Bob

I am going to let you in on one of my secrets. Door Knob Bob. Okay, some of you that go to Canton and McKinney Trade Days have seen and heard of DKB. He has an old brown pick-up truck he drives down from Ardmore, OK full of tubs of junk, or through my eyes "junque".
He just dumps everything out on tables in piles.

This is not a place to be wearing white or a new manicure. Dig you must.

Below are a few of the items I have made with these treasures.

I used an architectural piece and antique china to create this piece.

An old bent purse handle and vintage earring found a home on this frame.

I made this cute pink frame for my great- niece.

Add a little TLC, ribbon and imagination and Door Knob Bob would be proud!
