{you had me at chippy peely concrete lovebirds…}

 this is our macy’s…our happy place…

{excess field}

our junk therapy…

{vintage boots on the cheap at dead people’s stuff at ZaPP}


{awesome old green jars & olive buckets at ‘more than antiques’ in northgate field}

{more good stuff at ExCESS}

and look at the AweSOME, amazing, GIaNT, love-em-forever, sconces we scored for our new store…

{seriously…you could travel the world for this stuff…orrrrr just come to texas}

Only made it through front to back from the RV/Creek field in Warrenton down to Zapp Hall. Good thing I’m going back next week with my forever friend for FOUR DAYS! See you there fellow junkers.

    I am so interested to learn about the correlation of junk gypsies and the Saints. I see Mary and the Rosary often in your works and would love to know how this came about. I have a friend who owns a store in Dallas (The Gypsy Wagon), and have noticed the same tchotchkes in her store. Thank you!
