Vintage Formals

More photos from the Lone Star Antique Mall in Haltom City, Texas (near Ft. Worth).

Probably early 60s

Just inside the door to the right. I think the code on the tag for this booth says HO.

Mid to Late 60s

The dress above, as well as the pale green with the shawl, and the blue one are from Ruby Grace’s booth. Their website has more prom dresses and formals.

1960s Formal

Late 50s or early 60s - Front

The Back

40s

I didn’t get the name or code of this booth, but it’s a bit farther toward the boutique, when leaving Ruby Grace’s.

40s

Oh, that I would fit into one of these lovely dresses …

A Day Out

A lovely day today – my friend Mo (also from Tulsa) and I went to the Lone Star Antique Mall in Haltom City. It was really nice getting out of the house – even though the winds were terrific.

First we had lunch in the tea room.

The handmade chocolates in the case are by Sweet Shop USA, Mount Pleasant, Texas. (Isn’t that a nice name for a town?)

The nice lady who provides live music was there today, and played the grand piano.

Several girls were having special lunches with their mothers or grandmothers. This sweet little girl rather timidly went up to talk to the pianist.

I thought it was very kind of her to play tunes today that the children would recognize, like the theme from Sleeping Beauty.

Our waitress (who was showing me her vintage apron) was excellent. (Sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy; I only took one, so it was this one or nothing.)

Next Time – the Formals.
