More photos from the Lone Star Antique Mall in Haltom City, Texas (near Ft. Worth).
Just inside the door to the right. I think the code on the tag for this booth says HO.
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.
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.
Oh, that I would fit into one of these lovely dresses …
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.
On New Year’s Eve, Joe and I shopped for a bit in Lone Star Antique Mall and I decided to focus my picture taking on hats.
Isn’t it charming? This little number reminds me of one that Lucy might’ve worn; maybe with that navy blue dotted suit of hers.
With little organza flowers covering it, this one reminds me of ones that ladies wore to Sheridan Road Baptist Church in Tulsa in the early 1960’s.
Although most of them were vintage, one booth featured new hats.
Some of them were quite lovely.
How perfect for a wedding or a Sunday morning church service in the spring. It needs a white linen suit and a turquoise rhinestone brooch on the shoulder.
These are probably from the 1940’s, all made in the U.S.A.
This one is outlined in shiny silver (not glittery).
The green background is crinkled foil, the gold is shiny and the ribbon is embossed.
All these cards came from Dealer 033 at the Lone Star Antiques, Haltom City, Texas. As I’ve said before, this is one of my favorite places in North Texas. The booths are beautifully decorated, there’s a wide variety of antiques, the staff is very pleasant and the tea room is nice. It’s not as lacy and frilly as some others, but that’s good because my husband is willing to take me there. He’s not so happy about going to the really feminine ones.
My sister was surprised the first time I took her there. She said it just looks like this large metal building (it was built as a Sutherland’s Lumber Store). But when you walk in, it’s completely different. A real delight. I guess you can’t judge an antique store by its metal cover.
Just walking through the store is a real treat for me, especially when they decorate for the next season or Holiday.
This booth is the first one seen as you enter the front door, and it’s one of my favorites. The dealer is a friendly man. He gave me a discount for buying several of the cards. Also available are lovely handmade cards by his wife.
