Antique Season Is OPEN

Hi Everyone!

Today is the start of our “Antique Season” with our show in the Expo Building at the Dickinson County Fairgrounds.  A whole bunch of old friends stopped by.  And we know of a few more that will be coming tomorrow and Monday too.  We’re excited to see you all!  And those that can’t make it this weekend know that we are thinking of you and miss you.

We also made some new friends!  We dearly hope that you keep stopping by to see us so we can hear more about your collections, the cool things you’ve found, and the adventures that you’ve had.

The show continues tomorrow and Monday, so stop out and see us.



Pie, Pie & More Pie


You gotta LOVE Texas!

Michael and I were going through our pictures and ran across this picture of Dad and I in Round Top last fall.  We’d been driving all day and made it to Royer’s just in time for our 7pm reservation.  Dinner was awesome — But the fun started when we topped it off with the PIE SAMPLER. What’s that you ask?  It’s four, yes I said FOUR slices of pie topped off with ice cream!

Yep, You gotta LOVE Texas!



Time for my every-once-in-awhile update of the website!  🙂  Many of the ‘New!’ items have sold, so I moved them to the ‘Past Treasures’ page.  I also updated the ‘New!’ page with pictures of just some of the new treasures we have found this past fall and winter in preparation for the coming antique season.  Come in, look around, and enjoy!

Tammy’s Knee Surgery

Hi Everyone!

Tammy had her full knee replacement surgery in the middle of October.  It was done as an outpatient.  She hobbled home that day at about 5pm.  Her recovery is going very well!  She has been at or beyond the doctor’s and physical therapist’s expectations at every visit.  She is still cautious/a little unsure going down steps, but going up and everything else is good.  She is SOOO happy to be without pain!  And she is looking forward to having more energy and being back to her normal self for our shows next year.  Thank you EVERYONE for your concern, your prayers and your well wishes.  They mean a lot to us and we appreciate them VERY much.  Have a great Holiday season!

Oronoco 2016 Is Just Around The Corner!

Are you getting ready?  We are!  We have new stuff for you to ooh and aah over, and maybe even some things you might like to take home with you… 😉

So, do you think it will be hotter than blazes this year?  Then bring sunscreen, a sun hat or umbrella, and plenty of water.

Do you think it will be wet?  Then bring an umbrella.

Do you think it will be lovely?  Then bring your good walking shoes and comfortable clothes.

But regardless of the weather, be sure to bring your big smiles and hugs ’cause we will!!
