Sunday at the Market

We headed out early this morning to attend The Urban Market in Houston and what a great time we had visiting with everyone and seeing all the awesome treasures. We first met up with Melanie and Brian of The Seed Box Antiques, then it was on to see Peg and Jon of French Vanilla, and Linda and Ludmil of Willow Nest Farms were next to them. We ran into Susie and Hector, who were also set up there and saw Cheryl of Stash Studio's in their booth. Of course meeting Joanne of Sweet Finds was a pleasure, just like her blog name, sweet is exactly how she is! And, last but not least we saw Kim working and selling gumbo, which was absolutely delicious, I might add.

Okay, I know you are anxiously awaiting the pics of everything we saw.

Here was Peg and Jon's booth:

This cute white cabinet was filled with ironstone, numbers and letters.

Chairs on the wall with nests, what works of art!

Look at this beautiful architectural piece.

This entire display was just beautiful, loved the chairs.

And wouldn't that architectural header be cute as a headboard.

Next, we were on to see Linda and Ludmil's booth:

Look at all the pretty violet colored things, perfect with ironstone.

And that pink cabinet next to the table was so pretty!

Linda always makes the cutest works of art. These bottles with crepe paper would be just perfect anywhere.

And of course with Valentine's right around the corner, you might email Linda if you are interested in any of these pretties. If she sold out I'm sure she'll take special orders.

More views of her space.

The French chairs and table SOLD!!

Don't you just love the pink buggy. Can you see it on a porch with flowers, ready for Spring.

Here's is Melonie and Brian's space. They have the coolest things, look at that great table and what an awesome top:

Of course I found treasures with them, they always bring such a mix of things for you to choose from and all the way from Missouri!!

Loved the mannequin in the corner, but it had already SOLD!!

This was Susie and Hector's space and if my camera's battery wouldn't have been so low you would have seen more of their great things. If you are looking for unique items shop with them.

Here were pictures of other dealers things that caught my eye:

You know when you get my husband and Ludmil together, there's going to be trouble. Just kidding, but look how handsome they looked. Everyone was loving my husband's boots, so...

I took a close up shot so you could see his boots:

After we left the Market, we headed over to The Antique Gallery in Spring. I always love their displays when you walk in. Those columns were calling my name, but again SOLD!!

Being so close to Anthropologie, I couldn't resist stopping and eyeing their displays. Most people go in for their clothes, but here I am looking at their props over and over. They have the best ideas!! Don't you love these weathered umbrellas. They were all over the store. I can imagine what people where thinking when they were putting these displays together, but I just loved them.

I really liked the chairs piled up high. They had these huge light bulbs in the cages and hanging; they really intrigued me:

Our last stop was at Maggie's in The Woodlands. They were ready for Valentine's and had the best smelling candles burning:

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing where we went today. Wow, I'm pretty tired. Until next time...
