I'm dreaming of a White Vintage Christmas

Yes, and we are Still dreaming! Once in a blue moon we might have a White Christmas in Texas, but usually it is 50 degrees or higher. Unfortunately when we set up for our December sale, thunderstorms were looming. With our expansive grounds unusable for presentation or cuteness, we crammed merchandised all of the extra inventory in the Shed, and tried to think of a wind and rain worthy Christmas display for the front yard. 
Val had a crazy idea to use tomato cages (and a wire dress form) and by the Grace of God, Gigi just happen to have some in her yard. We turned the tomato cages upside down and wired the stakes together,covered them with twinkle lights and yards of tulle to create the illusion of flowing white trees. Added a few interesting weather tolerable objects and Viola!.....

 A weather worthy montage that looked as great at night as during the day!
Here are more pictures from the rest of the sale..


We still have lots of great, unique Christmas Gifts at the Red Shed. Visit HERE to see just a few!
Merry Christmas and Thank You from the bottom of our Hearts! Michele, Valarie & Gigi, The Red Shed Girls.

Thanksgiving Turkey Dogs!

Nope, not a post about my love of genetically modified hotdogs, but about the creativity of our own Gigi Ewbank..
A Dallas Thanksgiving tradition is the YMCA Turkey Trot. Huge crowds pour into Dallas early Thanksgiving  morning to run a 5K or 8K to earn money for the Y. This year they were also trying to set a record for the most runners dressed like TURKEYS (!?!).

Well, trust a Red Shed Girl, to want to get in on the fun. Cleverly creative Gigi headed to the Dollar Store....

To make sure that Bandit and Scooter (known as "the Boys") didn't miss out on the festivities!

Looks like Mom and Dad had fun too!
How did you spend your Thanksgiving?

Join us December 3rd for a Joyeux Noel Celebration at the Red Shed.

French Market Sale Photos

Last month was just a little crazy for us. We took 24 ladies in two back to back trips to shop the wonderful Flea Markets of Provence (more posts to come). The very next week we brought our fabulous French finds home to share with out dear customers at the French Market Sale. We are taking a couple of deep breaths before we dive into Christmas, but here are a few photos from The French Market.
Two tents full of fabulous!
 French Kitchenware
 Wonderful monogramed French linens...
 Lavender bouquets, sachets, soaps and oils....
 French Jewelry, dishware, hatboxes, apothocary jars and more...

Inside the cottage the fun continued...
This wonderful French crown was gone in less than 30 seconds....


 And our favorite display that started with..."I was thinking about using some garden chairs for a valance"...and the response was "?????????????"

Thank you so much to all of our dear past and new customers (who we consider family) for your support and patronage!
We have brought out even more French baubles since the sale, so please drop by!
