Country Girl Collections of Gladewater

Ethels Just Junk
Ethel Grimes
731 N Bois D’arc
Tyler Tx 75702

“Ethels’s Treasure Quest has become “Ethel’s Just Junk” after 17 years..people would ask what kind of things
Do you like?…what kinds of things to you carry? I found myself almost always answering "oh..just junk".

I take rusty things..used,abused that would appear to have no value and then I’s kind of what Jesus does with us and makes all things beautiful in its time. I would like to think it’s a time for a Piece of junk to be made into a jewel in your home.”

Country Girl Collections
Diane Taylor
124 S Main St
Gladewater Tx 75647

“I feel so blessed that I get to do something I really enjoy and along the way friendships made…"
Country Girl Collections has a verse written on the wall…” Thou art a Retailer of Phrases and dost deal in Remnents of Remnents like a maker of PinCushions”….
"that pretty much sums up what I’m about".

Making pillows and signs with meaningful words and birdhouses and crosses out of mosaic pieces. And spare parts…all of this surrounded by handpicked antiques in a old building in the antique District of Gladewater”

You can see both of these talented ladies collections at Winnie and Tulula's

Saturday was a busy day at Winnie and Tulula's, not even the heat could keep them away. There was a steady flow of customers coming in, some drove quite a distance to come and see the shop and we thank you for this. Also, thanks to all the customers that have stopped in since opening day last Saturday. Dealers were redoing their spaces and bringing in new merchandise and Gloria was finally able to take a small break. If you haven't made it out to the shop, please make plans to come out really soon.

Dealer of the Week-Monochromatic Home, Liz Caudle

We are going to be featuring one of our wonderful dealers every week and this week it's Liz of Monochromatic Home. Liz doesn't have a blog up yet, but she's working on it.

Simplistic living spills over into the backyard. Hollyhocks and Victorian ladies stroll through swaying moss hanging from the cypresses. Browse through vintage, picturesque statues, concrete bird baths and artful garden signs, along with many other unusual furniture pieces and home accessories. Become inspired to reinvent your concept of design following a soul searching meander through "Monochromatic Home".

Liz has a great way of bringing the outdoors inside.
You can see more of Liz's great finds, at the Hunt County Trade Center in Quinlan Texas, every weekend.

In a stylish modern quirky way. Her booth is stunning and inspiring.
