September City Wide

The sale at the City Wide Garage Sale in Austin was a bit different this month.  Last month was my first time back selling at this show in probably over 2 years.  I had a great show last month.  Furniture just seemed to fly out the door and I had to raid my booth at Binky LaFaye's just to have something to put my things on.  Now this past show the things that sold were mainly smalls, but some how I seemed to have a better show this time even though I sold very little furniture, go figure, right?  I'm not complaining it was just an observation of what was selling.

Of course in the show biz, you just never know what will sell or who you will meet up for that matter. I'll explain further down what I'm talking about.

I wanted to show my booth this month at the show:


I was really in the Fall mood and had lots of pumpkins to get in the mood.

I thought the iron bed would sell, but it didn't so it's going to be at Zapp Hall:


The canvas newspaper carrying bag and canvas golf bag both sold to a special lady.  It was Ann from Hill Country House.  It was so nice to finally meet her.  Check out her blog for a great picture she took of the both of us.  It's the best pic I've ever taken *wink*  She's also a great photographer.

Here are more pics:







Here's our truck before we unloaded:

our load

Here's our son and his girlfriend.  So glad they came out to see us:

Aren't they a cute couple!

Charyl Coleman had this awesome zinc top table with blue legs:


She'll be at the Red Barn Antique Show this Fall.  I can't wait to check out her booth there.

This was Maggie's booth:


Maggie has a space in the Austin Antique Mall and she's in a shop in Dallas.  She'll be helping Charyl at the shows. 

And finally, Nancy and Mike of House Wren had a fab booth too:


Be sure to look for them at the Marburger Farm Antique Show this Fall.

I have a post of the Uncommon Objects Antique Shop that I'll be showing probably next.  When we were in UO we saw Drew Barrymore.  I would have asked to take a picture of her but she was preoccupied.  She also came out to City Wide.  It was fun seeing her.


For those that have asked about the Texas wild fires, please pray that they will be fully contained before the shows start. We are in desperate need of rain in Texas and I sure hope there is some relief soon.  Of course those that have lost homes and the firefighters also need our prayers.  I've been consistently watching the Texas Forest Service website for updates and you can you follow the link too, just click HERE.  

Hope you all have a great weekend. 


  1. How handsome a couple they do make. You know how I feel about not being able to come to Texas it seems so much great stuff is in Texas. Enjoy looking at all the wonderful things you all have. I feel teased, in a good way.
    Everyone I talk too has Texas on their mind, the awful drought and fires, hope ya'll see some rain soon.

  2. Hope you sold out. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  3. It's always amazing to see what sales and what doesn't in retail. Like the pumpkins in your display; sure it put folks in a fall mood. Your son and girlfriend make a cute couple.
