We bought this wonderful trailer this morning on our way to Round Top. If I fill it up, I should have PLENTY of cool stuff to put in my booth at Third Coast Antiques, won't I?
My brother-in-law talked us into going to the lake today instead of hitting Round Top this afternoon. He is probably right. I wouldn't have much shopping time today. Besides, he promised to throw something tasty on the grill for us. Who could pass that up?

I feel so dusty and dirty after this morning's treasure hunt, but BOY did I find some goodies!!! I wasn't even sure I was going to bother this morning. It had been raining most of the week and there were very few sales to choose from. In fact, I wasn't even going to go to the one that I found all of the goodies but a friend of mine said, "Let's go", so I did.
The cedar jewelry box is from Dallas. The front of it is stamped - Texas Centennial 1836 - 1936. It's a neat little box. I didn't get everything photographed, but this gives you a pretty good idea of today's score.
Fortunately, the guy I bought all this from also delivered it. After he told me he would deliver it, he asked me where I lived. I joked with him and told him that I lived about 25 miles south of town. I couldn't resist.

I had my DH pressure wash all the windows then I gave them a good sanding after I removed the glass. Instead of spraypainting the glass with chalkboard paint, I spraypainted some brown hardboard. It takes a couple of coats to get a nice finish, but I really like the results.
