Cabin Fever Relievers...

If you're anything like me, you've had it up to HERE with this weather.  These images were taken this past Saturday as we were driving to Canton for First Monday.  It took us 2 1/2 hours to drive what I've made in 50 minutes many times.  The line of vehicles stacked up on both the eastbound and westbound sides of 1-20 was anything but encouraging! 

Cars, trucks and 18 wheelers were all in need of assistance.
I hope you were smarter than we were and stayed home!

Once in Canton the void of the outside vendors could only be
described as stark.  Many who had braved the cold on Thursday and
survived the snow of Friday were taking advantage of the sun and packing up!

The news from LHO was not much better, we were closed most of the week and several of our consignment delayed due to interference from Mother Nature.  Therefore, What's New Wednesday is a little sparse this week, but never fear we have deliveries scheduled over the next few days.  Also, if you or someone you know has furniture/furnishings they want to sell send them our way!  Have them email photos and brief descriptions to:

Here's what's new along with some spring inspiration below.  Enjoy!

The Lake Art (maps) in our Vintage Sign Collection have recently become a big seller for us in Canton. 
 New this month is the Lake Palestine Map

between Canton and Tyler in the Piney Woods of East Texas
Sizes:  17x23, 23x31 and 28x38
Maps Available in Wood or Metal

East Texas is such a beautiful part of the state and there are several great lake candidates
for weekend lake houses if you happen to be in the market. 
(it's fun to look even if you are not in the market!)
We found this great Lake Palestine lake house for sale on like a good value
Priced at  $285,000.00 For Sale By Owner

Another charming east Texas lake just to the east of Lake Palestine is Lake Tyler.
Couldn't you just stare at this all day long?  I think I might!!

Enjoy dreaming with us.
