Red Baron Mall... our newest "home"

   Elaine and I decided that Sisters' Treasures needed a place to sell our wares besides Fredericksburg Trade Days, and since we were already coming to Fredericksburg once a month, we signed up to rent a space at the Red Baron Antique Mall on Hwy 290 (Main St) just past downtown.  The owners, Henry and Shawn Umphreys and Shawn's mother, Margaret are the dearest people and extremely friendly and helpful.
       We officially started September 1, but they allowed us to move in the week before and thankfully we already had a few sales that first week.  We have to work 2 days a month at the mall which is a good thing, because it allows us to see what is trending there and we get to "fluff" and add to our booth.
      I did the first month last week, Thursday and Friday and took some pictures with my I Phone of some of the booths and items among the 50 plus vendors and wanted to share with you, what the mall has to offer. They have a facebook page Red Baron Antiques with more pictures of items for sale.
   I put together this collage but I apologize for the poor quality ( I think my camera lens is warped).
  I'll add some close ups Elaine took of some our our vignettes.

   I put together some collages of some of the vendors items that I particularly liked.

 I wanted to show this clever display separatelly because I loved the way this vendor, Paula (she doesn't have a name for her booth) used a dress form to display her collection of doilies and lace for sale. Isn't this clever?  (the picture doesn't do it justice).
  If you are in Fredericksburg, Tx either as a visitor or a resident and haven't been by the Red Baron, I strongly encourage you to stop by. 
     Plus for everyone in the Texas area, we will be at Fredericksburg Trade Days this weekend for our monthly show.  Come out and enjoy what is suppose to be nice weather and shop for some great finds.
   Until next time,
