Farewell to Antiques and More

With mixed emotions, Elaine and I decided to pull out of Antiques and More in Castroville this past weekend, so we can concentrate on Fredericksburg Trade Days and our new space at Blue Hills Antique Mall in Geronimo, Texas.
It's hard to leave nice people and the two sisters who own Antiques and More, Debbie and Phyllis, are great and are doing their best to make their antique store a success in a tough economy.  We wish them well and will definitely go back and shop and recommend you, our readers, go by when you're in Castroville, Tx.
        The "misadventures "of tearing down a space filling a trailer and two vehicles and then transporting them almost a hundred miles to a new location are crazy to say the least.  The funniest part we didn't take pictures of which was trying to tie down a tarp over our "treasures" on a flat bed truck and then "rigging it" as only daughters of Dan Herrmann could do!  Daddy would have been proud of our "get us by" methods!!  After four stops to retie the tarp we finally made it to Geronimo, but only had about an hour and fifteen minutes to transform our booth with all the NEW items we brought over!!  WELL, that didn't happen, so I stayed the night in Geronimo at my nephew's place (thank you, Dan and Jennifer) and the next day, Elaine and I worked from opening until closing to work our Magic (or at least some pretty creative ways to cram two loads of stuff into one booth)!
