AN UNDISCOVERED GEM....


....that would be the divine Christie.

During Antique Week in Warrenton, she can be found between Zapp and Renck Hall, in an ethereal, cottage-y tent, an oasis of white and whimsy where she has created a little shop of wonder.

And the singularly talented Christie is only undiscovered in the blogging realm, as she isn't a blogger herself. Those who have shopped the fields of Warrenton, more often than not, are well acquainted with the charming lass, and she has developed a loyal following of those who head to her tent, day after day during the shows, to see what magic she'll be conjuring up that day. 

I purchased quite a bit from Christie during my week in Warrenton, and came to think of her as a friend.
I hope you will, too!

Here's her space...don't forget to click pics to enlarge...













































Take a bow, Christie!




You can find her at The County Line Market in Huffman, Texas, or in Warrenton next Fall.

And speaking of, I still have more Warrenton pics and posts in the pipeline, hang in there sports fans!

Have a great night!

That's a lot of smalls. She must also possess the patience of a saint to gather and display so many things! Pretty...Pretty!

You HAD to know that I'd instantly gravitate to the silk ribbon roses...especially those lovely grey/green ones. YUM! You're so right...she has a wonderful place to visit. Thanks for sharing.

I visited with her a few times and never made it to her space. I'm with Debbie. That is a whole lotta smalls! I'm sure she had lots of fun decorating and putting it all together for our viewing/buying pleasure! I will HAVE to go see her space next time! Thanks for taking all these great pics! ~Mindy (ps. The vertebrae buyers told me about buying it from y'all! Love it!)

Debra@Common Ground said...

She and I possess the "smalls" gene. except hers are much better than mine! LOL! She had some great stuff, what fun to browse her space. And what? no blog? you'll have to talk to her about that!
OK, times up, girlfriend. I'm calling tomorrow.

debsea said...

oh more creepy dolls! i love it. the one in the yellow cherub dish appears to be a little concerned at being too close to those two lightbulbs...or perhaps she just had a really great idea?! i am sad to be stranded on this island where no one appreciates a good doll head....

Lululiz said...

Oh paleeeeeeeeeeeze, let me at it, I wanna spend days working my way through all those fabulous things and fondle them and ooh and aaah over them. Sob sob, alas I can only dream about it.

Junk Exchange said...

HEY!!! I know her .. She is just as lovely as her displays - a TRUE gem .. junker through and through .. would walk to the edge for her .. we met her last fall .. set up right at the corner and could see one anothers booths and visited off and on and just the month before Warrenton, she traveled with a friend to Canton .. what a surprise! ..did she tell you the one about the bridal wreath under glass? .. she is as full of stories about her wares as her booth is full of wares ..yes, love her space .. it is like she transports a little cottage to warrenton each time complete with opening and closing doors ..
love you Christie!!
