Pivot and change... we’ve all heard and lived those words a lot this spring...and it isn't always a terrible thing.
When we signed off in March, from our show at the Mineola Antique Fair, we really thought we’d be back in April. Oh, how things have changed!
Since then, Angea aka Rooster Tails (IG @roostertails55) and I pondered the future and both felt led to close this chapter out. We can’t thank all of you enough for your friendship and support over the last two years at MAF! We’ve enjoyed getting to meet all of you and share stories and talk about junk, antiques, and vintage finds. The 80s ladies inspired a fun design when they told us their motto was to live life in the fast lane - really, they were 87 and 89 at the time, still shopping the vintage markets! Kelli surprised us and drove 1/2 way across the state of Texas to come meet us... Linda from Iowa planned her TX trip to coincide with our show (Sorry Linda, I can’t find the picture) And there were so many more friends we met and stories.
We will carry the stories and friendships with us, always!
We will still be around and go junkin’ when we can (our favorite junkin’ and pickin’ places are still closed). Angea and I both have a booth at Kickin’ K Cattle Co. Boutique in Quitman (just a few miles north of Mineola) and I’ll be even more involved online. I’m working on some virtual junkin’ ideas, so everyone can participate and we will see where the road takes us from here. Who knows, we may be back in the fall. We set out to do one show in 2015 together and it’s been a fun journey ever since, with invitations to various shows and events.
Until we meet again, stay safe, stay well, we thank you, and happy trails. We are excited to see what's around the next curve in the road!
P. S. The Mineola Antique Fair will be open in June 12-13 - go see our friends there and tell them we said hi!
