My roots in Arkansas and Texas take me to some of the best antiquing in the south.  I’ve spent many a day working the New Orleans shops and bargaining with dealers all over the Dallas and Houston areas to name a few.

Buying a vintage or antique item is fun!  There is almost always a story or history to share.  If not, there is the intrigue of wanting to know more.  One of the best ways to infuse a space with some character is with a vintage/ antique artifact or piece of furniture.  The reuse or repurposing of pieces from the past can also feel very satisfying.

In early October, Roundtop, Texas will host its bi- annual flea market and antiques show.  It’s HUGE with dealers from all over the country. For more information on this event visit
