Antique Alley, Here I Come

Have you ever bought stuff and had no where to put it, and then had to just leave it in your car? I did.

I scored these five chairs on Craig's List.  They're not exactly what I wanted, but the price was right and after I refinish them, they'll be fine.  The problem is that I didn't want to bring them in the house in this condition, and if I put them in the garage, I couldn't get the car in.  So I just left them in the car for a week. 

But I had to find a place for this stuff because today I'm going to Antique Alley. It starts in Cleburne, Texas and goes through Mansfield and Itasca. Lots of garage sales, antique shops, and flea markets. The weather is going to be mild and I'm going with a good friend so I'll have a good time even if I don't buy anything.



  1. Looks like you bought my kitchen chairs!

  2. That sounds like a lot of fun. Wish I could be there too!

  3. You mean there are people who do not have furniture in their cars!?! I am with you - I clean mine out when I plan on a shopping trip. That trip of yours sounds awesome. Show us your treasures later!

  4. So how did your shopping trip go? Did you find some treasures? And while I don't have furniture in the car or the garage, our extra storage room is starting to overflow...time to start painting!! Hope you've had a great week!
