Fredericksburg Trade Days AKA--- Hotter Than Blazes August Show

Two weekends ago, Elaine and I celebrated our second anniversary at Fredericksburg Trade Days and our first anniversary at our Sisters Treasures Cottage.
It was definitely the hottest show we've done and I'm not talking sales! ha! We did have a great show despite the heat and want to thank everyone who braved the 100 plus temps to attend the show and for supporting our business.
Now you know you love this business when you have surgery on your foot the Friday before and still not only attend the show but work like crazy to make it a success!! Way to go big Sis! Elaine was a super "trooper" and hobbled around on her walking boot assisting customer and moving way more than I'm sure her doctor intended her to do! We give thanks to our Mom for giving us that "keep on keeping on attitude"! Love you, Mom!
We redid the kitchen area to showcase Elaine's great 50's formica table and the neat retro Coca Cola menu board with lots of fun retro kitchen accessories.
Since there's a big trend with men now to set up a "Man Cave",
we thought it would be fun to set up a scenario to give the guys some ideas of what we carry that would work in their "Cave". Here's just one pic of a fun retro Man chair with a great Tabasco shirt to keep his "KOOL"!
Our cover picture is a vinette of some crusty, chippy garden and architectural items available. Come see us next month (third weekend) for more great treasures. In between that time you can shop with us at the Blue Hills Antique Mall in Geronimo. We just did a little "foofing" today.
