Category Archives: Lone Star Antique Mall
Towards the far left center (as you enter through the front door) at the LoneStar Antique Mall, there sits a beautiful example of American engineering – an 1931 Ford pickup truck.
It’s displayed with some vintage looking Mobil oil signs, oil cans, etc.
Remember when they were called “service stations” and they really were full service?
“Check your oil for you?” the uniformed man would say as he was cleaning the windshield.
I digress. You can go here for the Wikipedia article on the 1927-1931 Ford Model A.
Because of so many other items surrounding it, I couldn’t get a good photograph of the whole truck.
If you can’t go to the LoneStar Antique Mall in Haltom City, Texas, you can go here to see a nicely restored one.
This vehicle is on my fantasy wish list.
My sister asked about the closeup photograph of the daisy in my last post. It was taken during our recent visit to the LoneStar Antique Mall’s tea room, Simpliciteas.
As you can see, I ordered the half veggie sandwich/half fruit salad; Joe had the soup of the day and a roast beef sandwich.
Their fruit salad is the best I’ve ever had – anywhere. Everything fresh, nothing overripe and much more than an ordinary honeydew/cantelope mixture. There are usually 7 or more varieties of fruit served with a poppyseed dressing on the side.
Dessert for me is almost always the orange cake; can’t remember the proper name. It’s a sponge cake base with a zesty orange filling and frothy topping. The serving is large enough to share, and a bit of a stretch for just one person, unless you’re still quite hungry. (This photo was taken during a previous lunch, when I was eating alone.)
Passed this booth as we were leaving. Wish I knew the owner’s name to share with you. It’s one of my favorite booths there; she always sets up her display as a fully decorated room and it’s lovely, isn’t it?
