Shopping for Antiques in the area...

We had the best time this past weekend, just driving around and shopping locally! We started out HWY 190 toward Livingston, stopped at Kate's Guilded Lilly and bought a lot of Christmas stuff, really affordable. Then we went to livingston and shopped downtown and bought a few things, had some lunch at the Mexican resteraunt, just a little south of Downtown, it was a pleasant surprise. We headed back to Huntsville through the Cold Spring area and very surprised.... there was a new owner of one of the downtown stores and they were making deals! We had to go to the "ATM" twice, we just kept finding stuff. Each store had some really hard to find items and some unusual items, we can't wait to get them in our booths in downtown Huntsville Texas. We had the back of the truck full and the back seating area was flowing over with good deals. I found an old mission shelf for $65.00, an old cast iron baby bed for $40.00 and an entire set of 50's dishes, over 100 peices for $50.00! These are just a few examples, it is definately a trip worth taking. The New Waverly Auction is this Saturday, the 20th at 6:00, viewing is at 4:00. I always pick up items there, for about one fifth their value. I last bought a head Vase for twelve bucks! You have to get on their mailing list! They are just getting back from a trip up north, I can't wait to see what they are bringing back. In short, it really pays to shop locally, come and see for yourself! Love and God Bless!
