Getting closer

We are getting excited. Our vendors are working their rooms and starting to move items in.  Cindy and I have to get our rooms set.  We are having the garage sale March 26 so it is a chance to clear out the junk and make sure we only have the best.  We have some wonderful ideas of how to get the traffic coming to our end of 6th.  We are going to have parking lot Paris Flea Markets once a month for the summer months.  Can't wait!  We already have people asking to be included.  We will rent sections of the parking lot.  It should be so much fun. I will post before the event because people from the surrounding area may want to come shop that weekend.  We are shooting for the first weekend of May to begin this exciting event.

Garage sale coming up Saturday

We have gone through so much merchandise that we have decided that we need to have a garage sale.  We want to have really nice product in our store so we are clearing out the items that do not make the cut.  I can not believe how  busy we have been.  Things are shaping up.  Jamie and her husband put wood beams in her room, sooooo cute.  Can't wait to get pictures posted.

My son has worked hard to get a computer going for me.  It is great to have someone that can custom design a computer just for the business.  I could start a whole new blog just bragging about my kids.

Window Treatment - Maryland House Original

It took almost five hours to make.  Antique footboard modified with this beautiful lace that we purchased at an estate sale.  Next pictures I get I will try to get closer.  The wood has great character.  The lamps are for sale on either end.  Can't wait to open.

Amarillo Pickers

I added the American Pickers link because we are the Amarillo Pickers.  This week I went to a lady's front porch and asked if she wanted to sale her bistro set, she didn't, but Cindy went to a lady's front porch and the lady sold her the item Cindy wanted.


Thought I had finally got this blog to show up when looking for Route 66 and Amarillo, Texas, but it only shows up on mine.

I did it!!!

You can now search for Maryland House Antiques in Amarillo, Texas and it will now appear in the search line.  I want to thank Lisa Turner for helping me so much!

Check out the hangers on the mirrors. Old homes had a picture hanging molding. Cindy found the hangers on ebay.

Told you we had a mess. This is why we are so busy.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Beautiful Hutch! New piece we added today. It isn't full yet.

Vintage 1940s candy machine

Cindy and I bought a 1940s art deco candy machine today.  It still works.  We are going to fill it with gum and candy which will be for sale, but ultimately the machine is for sale.  It is so cute.  I will post a picture once it is delivered tomorrow.
