White Wednesday in Tyler

It's time for another one of Kathleen's White Wednesday so I thought I'd feature a great shop in Tyler Tx that I've featured before.  When I was there last week for the HEAP Show, I couldn't resist stopping at Ethel's Shop, Ethel's Treasure Quest.  I found a few treasures with her and she had this really pretty garden statue that I almost wish I'd have gotten:

You just never know what you'll find there.  Her displays and merchandise change consistently.  Look at this great couch:

You can find lamps, small columns, tables, garden ornaments, a bit of it all:

You can also find chandeliars:

She has dishes, birdbaths, and just about anything you are looking for:

Be sure and check her out the next time you are in Tyler.  I'm sure you'll find a treasure or two.

  You can find Ethel's shop at 731 N. Bois D'Arc in Tyler, or call her at 903/830-8173
☼  You can also find her at Winnie & Tulula's
  Or look for her in Canton in the Pavilians

I had to show one of the things I bought from her, this awesome wood column with ornate detail:

See what I mean:

I think for now this one is a keeper.

You can see the table full of things I've found during my road trips.  I'll do a post on these things later this week.  Happy Wednesday to you all.


  1. I like your background {wink} {wink}

  2. Oh, what a great place to visit. And, what yummmy finds Theresa...
    I do love the column!!

  3. GREAT COLUMNS... ~ Especially the middle one on the table next to the lamp!!! Perfect size for displaying anywhere... I can see why you're keeping your Larger FiNd-JUST FAB!!! Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  4. What a gorgeous shop! I love the column you found!

  5. I would love to work in a place like that. I enjoy constantly changing and rearranging.

  6. I have got to get by there for a visit....blessings

  7. I remember when you did a post that great shop! Loved all the eye candy then, and now. I think you chose a "good" keeper. I have this love affair with architectural pieces!!

    Take care, Sue

  8. What a place, my kind of place to get lost in! Great column, yeah, I'd keep it too!

  9. You do get to go to the best shops. I one of everything, please. Great colunm! I would hold onto that one. They are so hard to find anymore especially with the detailing.

    Take care,


  10. That is a most wonderful column!! I was only in Ethel's shop once and I loved it. I've moved farther away now or I'd run on over.
    Do you ever go to Gladewater? I used to have booths there. There are some great places to shop there. I think you would especially love Country Girl Collection. If you go, tell Diana that Angela says hello.

  11. Oh, I love to shop in Ethel's store, she has the best stuff!!! I love your column, that's a great find! Blessings~~~Daphne

  12. What an amazing shop!!!!

  13. Hi Theresa, Ive got to agree with you that is a keeper. Great pic's of the shop also...Julian

  14. Just beautiful, Theresa!
    I'm crazy about that awesome column, great find!


  15. I am sooooooooooo glad you told me about her! Hubby & I were in Tyler about a week ago & only found the Antique Stores downtown. I found a few things but, I wish I had found this before. NOW I WILL KNOW! I love the colum!!!!! DIVINE! Do you have plans for it? We plan on going to Tyler in June to look at trailers/RV's so I will print out her address & when I see her I will tell her you sent me. THANKS

  16. wow! such great things, beautifully displayed. love the column. where are you going to use it? cool-


  17. Oh, I am so loving that column...too cool! This one would definitely be hard to let go. Thanks again for sharing all of your great shopping spots.

  18. ethel has such great goodies and she's a doll too! that column is fabulous! definitely a keeper!

  19. I love Ethel's, Glad you had time to stop by her place. Love your column too.

  20. Great looking shop! I used to visit Tyler frequently, but haven't been there shopping in a long time so I have not seen her shop before.

  21. I'm so glad i found your blog. So many amazing pictures of so many amazing things. We don't seem to have as many awesome shabby chic items in Canada :( I really think i need to plan a road trip to the US, hmmm i may never come back. I'm a new blogger of about a month and would love it if you popped in to say hi when you have some free time. I'm off to take a look at the rest of your blog!

  22. Ethel is just the best. Love the columns.

  23. Morning! I am so loving that column you bought! Are you going to just display it or make a lamp out of it? I ask as I am wanting to try my hand at making a floor lamp out of one.

    Thank you for liking my bed bench.

    Cheers, cindykay

  24. This looks like the kind of shop I could get lost in for hours. I live down here in San Antonio, TX and I haven't found any great shops like this around here.
    Patricia :o)

  25. Oh, WHY can't I be a Texas girl?? I can take the heat... really... ok, maybe not but still... I NEED to be a Texas girl!! You get to visit the most fun places. I'm so jealous.

    Blessings... Polly

  26. This looks like a great shop! I'm going to Tyler next week...betcha I stop by! Did you see how Laura & Kay changed up the lay-out of the booths? I'm in part of your space~Have a wonderful weekend~XO, Ann
