Yelling and Screaming. . .

If you happened NOT to be within a five mile radius of the store this past week you may not have heard us yelling and screaming and squealing and  jumping up and down and all around in celebration as Lakehouse Outfitters was recognized by Southern Living magazine as one of their Top Five Picks from thousands of vendors at First Monday Trade Days in Canton.

Yep.  It's true.  Here's a little peak at the article which resides in the Texas Living section of the June Issue.

Look!  There we are - two photos no less.  Jodi and I standing next to our boat sign at the entrance of our booth and the other of our sign wall!

Here's a little taste of what the Editors at Southern Living had to say about us "Their well-editied selection of eclectic decor has grown into a full-scale retail operation, with a permanent store in Dallas that supplements their Canton spread.  The pair has an eye for good-looking rustic and 
refurbished furniture. . .

Pick up your copy of Southern Living to read the full story.  

Congratulations also to the other four picks:

Girls Gone Junkin'
Row 46, Booth 19-20 (our neighbors on Row 46)

Laurie Anna's Vintage Home
Hiway 19, Canton

Lone Cedar
Arbor 1, Booth 23-24

The Lonesome Doves
The Porch (located at the end of Row 46)

Row 46 has some kickin' vendors.  Hope to see you next weekend as First Monday runs Thursday, June 2nd through Sunday, June 5th.
