Ever had one of those magical trips where the moon and the stars aligned…and not only did everything exceed your expectations to the point where you are almost giddy anyway…but then oh, say, country singer MIRANDA LAMBERT stops by and falls in love with one of your necklaces?!? And the amazingly talented and bona fide JUNK GYPSIES are your neighbors…who stop by to ask how ya’ll are doin! And the famous local Royer’s Cafe, puts on a spaghetti and disco night! (Really, is there a better combo?)
Well that’s how our trip to Antique Week at Zapp Hall in Warrenton, TX went down.
My dear friend and fabulous artist Meg Harper and I hooked up the Paris Montana Blacktop Boudoir and headed to Warrenton, TX, for Antique Week on a glorious AZ mornin’ two weeks ago.
If you’ve never been, it’s truly like a designer/shopper/dreamer/gypsy fantasy land with acres of fabulous finds from reclaimed barn wood to $50,000 Persian rugs. I used to complain that we didn’t have anything stateside that could compete with the Parisian fleas. We do. It’s called Antique Week and it stretches from Roundtop to Warrenton, TX and many points in between!
During our 10-day visit we met all kind of characters, made great new friends, and ate Texas Caviar (black eyed peas with some delicious sauce) like it was going out of style. We danced and sang and laughed and held onto our hats in the wind. It was a most wonderful glorious adventure and I can’t hardly wait for the fall show!
On the horizon…During the show we developed a concept for a whole new vintage reclaimed salvage line, which will be a series of statement pieces made from vintage jewelry molds that I can’t wait to share with ya’ll. For a sneak peak, check out the piece I am wearing in the pic next to Miranda Lambert.
See you down the road!
