Beautiful Blends

I've had the pleasure of getting to know
so many wonderful dealers at
Fredericksburg Trade Days
over the past few years.

I consider most of these fines folks to be
good friends now,
and two of the finest are
Diane Schwartz and Roger Gallamore
BLENDS in Georgetown, Texas.

I paid a visit to their dreamy shop recently,
and although I knew it would be stunning,
 it truly blew me away.

The lovely Diane, ever the gracious hostess!

 And Roger...what a character!
He knew full well I was snapping his photo,
and carried right on with lunch. Attaboy!

In addition to visiting my good friends Diane and Roger,
I was so happy to get to meet one of their customers Dana,
who is also a follower of my blog.
She brought along her sweet grandbaby, Ryan!

 Ryan posed handsomely for me
after we became buds.
Those eyes!

The great thing about Blends is that not only
do Diane and Roger have a marvelous collection
of vintage wares, but they also carry an absolutely
fabulous array of romantic clothing.

One of their most popular items are 
what Diane refers to as "dance pants"...

 Here I am in the photos above and below
sporting my dance pants / bloomers in white
from Blends.

They come in many different colors,
and are truly flattering on every body type.
And so affordable, too!

But back to the shop itself...

You can visit Blends in their brick and mortar store
4230 Williams Drive, Georgetown, TX
Open Wednesday-Saturday 10-5 

or at
third weekend of every month
next up... August 17th-19th.

 I'll be there next go-round...
see you there?

Oh Anne your photos are absolutely gorgeous. I met Diane & Roger at Canton when I use to set up there, they are really sweet and their booth is always beautiful. I didn't know they had a store in Georgetown. I have to go for a visit.

Hi Anne, Your pictures are stunning as always. Ryan is such a little cutie and posed beautifully for you.
The picture of the clocks reminded me of my childhood. You would make a good model in your dance pants. They really looked comfortable. Have a great weekend. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.
