Today, we ran down to Tyler (as if this is just down the street, it's actually about 2 1/2 hrs. from my home) to see Ethel and find treasures for our upcoming show at Amy's shop, Bloom and Bee Swanky on April 23. Ethel has a shop in Tyler Texas, Ethel's Treasure Quest, and she's located in Winnie and Tulula's in Athens AND... she also sets up in Canton. I've featured Ethel several times from when we've seen her in Canton and in W&T, but I've don't think I've ever featured her at her shop.
Many would like to keep her a secret and several I'm sure have found her and shopped with her but never told a soul about her, but you know what. Ethel works really super hard in this business and I just feel it a great honor to not only call her a friend but be able to share her great treasures with you. She told me the last time I featured her someone contacted her from the pictures they saw on my blog and she shipped the item to them, now that's a happy day.
I have shared Ethel's place with several friends and she told me that after the show she saw Laurie and TOT, who found some things to take back home with them. Okay, I hear you, I know you want to see pics:
There's Ethel standing in front of her shop.
Her shop is filled from top to bottom full of wonderful things.
This is only a small sample of what you will find here and come next week, it might be sold.
Loved these three planters:
I thought they were made of heavy concrete, but they are actually very light weight. No, I didn't buy them, but maybe I should have, they were cool.
Just an array of wonderful things:
Loved the girl in the planter, so many possibilities.
I hope if you are in Tyler, you'll stop by and see her, she's located at 731 N. Bois D'Arc in Tyler, or call her if you are headed that way 903/830-8173. You can also find her at Winnie & Tulula's or look for her in Canton. She said she's moving back out to the Pavillians. I'll show you tomorrow what we saw at the Barn Sale in Deer Park and I'll resume my Warrenton/Round Top posts on Monday. Happy weekend to you all!
