Dr. York's Traveling Medicine Show

Here I am with my checkbook and cell phone in hand fixing to(btw, that's Texas lingo)hit the road with Cat Daddy once again. Sometimes I think I must have been born with wheels on my rear the way that man keeps me on the road. Check out the necklace thanks to The Laurie of 2Chippys fame. It is a "gotta have it" if I ever saw one. But, once again my ADD kicks in and I digress. Anyway, we headed out the door Saturday morning to Buchanan's Antique Fair at Market Hall with other destinations waiting.
Now before you start thinking I hit the liquor cabinet early, I wanted to give you a peek and a hint of where we ended. I'm doing another long post on that destination later, but I thought I would set y'all to guessing as to where else we went. And n-o-o, that's not me above on a bad hair day and n-o-o, that's not my tricked out Cadillac Escalade. Those are my hints. I just wanted to see if anybody really reads what I write or if everyone just looks at the pictures.
So back to Buchanan's. We have a dear friend here in Dallas, June Willis, who finds the most amazing things. She is a true antique dealer and is known for miles around. She always does Buchanan's and is usually set up in Zapp Hall at Warrenton. In fact, this will be the first show she has missed in 12+ years due to unforeseen reasons. She is also at Lost on Industrial Blvd. in Dallas. Like I said, her things are just beautiful as you can see from the pictures.
Do you not just absolutely love this turquoise table?
This is a flip flop table(kinda like some politicians). It is papier mache with mother of pearl inlay. Wow!
She always has an eclectic look that the decorators in Dallas just love.
She, like most of us girls, loves feminine things. When we got there, she had already sold a lot.
Check out that fabulous, green magazine rack. To die for.
Open sesame!
I did buy a few things at this show and I'll show y'all later. We have several friends who do this show and it's always fun to go out and see them. After Cat Daddy rounded me up, we headed out to the truck to load and head on down the road. I think I'll leave y'all guessing as to who my mystery guest is. If you guess it, don't give it away. What fun!
