Hi there Howdy and Hey Yall

YeeHaw. So happy to be sending reinforcements today down to Roundtop,Texas for the big Marburger Antique Show they have going on down there.

We've been stitching,pinning,draping and SHIPPING our little hearts away down by de rusty bayou. So hoping people love our stuff. And it is truly exciting to see how it translates off line and out of town.

It looks like everyone is buying lace, lace and more lace this year, probably before the world runs out of doilies.

It may be hard to believe, but there was a legitimate doily shortage here at the Salvages and we had to make-do.

Once the doilies ran out, it was time to get these scarves finished anyway as they've been sold out for a while and the orders for them were backing up on Etsy. Now I have about 20 or so. Yay!

So dont forget, if you are in Texas, head over to Hillcrest Inn, the side porch to check out the rustmobile and get you some bayousalvage in person!

See yall there!

Getting Ready for Round Top Texas, Antique Show Here We Come

Its getting a little crazy here in salvage land. Once again we have the rustle of tafetta in the breeze,scraps of lace to and fro and the whir of the cast iron 1930s Singer. We're getting ready for Marburger, the grandaddy of Southern Antique Fairs and bayousalvage will be there!

Just like Jazz fest, doing this event is a dream come true. It wouldnt have been possible if we hadnt had an online shop on ETSY! for reals. Hallelujah!

We're going to be in front of Hillcrest Inn, at the Reborn Rubbish Booth skillfully manned by Donna Fussell, a handmade pioneer from around these parts. She's been selling at the event for years and she has great style and taste for the salvage life.

So dont forget to check us out salvagistas on your way to the Junk Gypsy Prom or as you load your carpetbags to go see Magnolia Pearl.
Follow the rusty, dusty trail and look for the lace!

We'll be there preview weekend until closing at October 3.xoxoxo,the salvages
