The Big Reveal

It is time to let you in on the secret .

Do you really want to know?

The new dealer is the one and only....

MR. ELLA!

Yepper, this is the man who wouldn't even get out of the car when we stopped at an antique shop while we were on our honeymoon. I vowed to myself then that I would have to teach this man to love the thrill of the hunt.

This was not an easy task though. It took almost 30 years of the Ella influence and determination to get to this point.
He is one of us now. A little scary, but fun.

About a month ago, Mr. Ella told me he wanted to have a booth downstairs at the ACM.
The only space available was a 5' x 10' booth.
Not too small, not too big. It was just right.
I helped him pick out the paint color (a muddy grayish brown) and the building of a booth began.

Framing the area with architectural pieces was like adding needed jewelry.

I will say Mr. Ella must have been paying attention to my quirky ways over the years...

The space is filled with a tasteful collection carefully selected by Mr. Ella.


Not too shabby, right?


Our shopping adventures will never be the same.




Way to go Honey!!!

Garden Antqs at Warrenton

My trip to Warrenton just would not have been complete until I spent time with Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage.

Her booth was filled with a dreamy vanilla palette with her classic touch of robin egg blue.


Enjoy browsing!

Theresa is also set up in the Antique Company Mall in McKinney, Texas.



Just up the aisle from Ella's corner booth.
