I Wish It Was Sunday.


'Cause that's my fun day. Ha! A gold star for anyone who remembers those lyrics. I really did have fun on Sunday at the Urban Market, but Monday I spent feeling sick...not fun. So, I'm going to keep the writing short and sweet, but I will share my favorite photos. (I guess that isn't very different).




These two lovely ladies are Sally Wheat and Jackie Sharbrough. Jackie took ownership of organizing the Market this year and is an antique dealer herself! Sally is also an antique dealer and designer who refurbished the amazing set of white chairs above. Some of Cote de Texas readers, may remember seeing her amazing house here. I've become a fan of her mid-century furniture and driftwood pieces. Both of their items can be found here.

So, most of my shopping trips consist of walking around and taking photos. I am happy to say that this trip actually turned up a treasure I had to have. This table is will work perfectly for a small project for my house. I need my husband to adjust it a little, so I'm not going to promise photos of the finished product. Sorry, Mark. I love him to death, but projects often take longer than I like.

Oh all of you lovely Texan ladies are making me completely jealous that I don't live in TX. The Urban Market looks amazing. I loved your pics.

Annie said...

Darn! Wish I had gone. But your photos are great fun to view. Get well!

Courtney said...

Oh are Jackie and Sally not the cutest things ever?! These pics look great!

And I love your table. Is it normal table height? What a fab find.

Got to make it out to it.

Yes, who could forget the cutest of Susanna Hoffs and the Bangles...but does anyone remember that Prince wrote the song for them?

Looks like amazing place.

Carolina Eclectic said...

Chris, you are right!! You get two gold stars. Perhaps you like trivia as much as I do:)

HHFD: Come on down!

Annie: Thanks so much. It was fun.

Courtney: I thought Sally and Jackie were very cute too...w/ the cool shades and the Heidi braids:)
The table is actually more like a small bench. Its only about 18"H. I'm planning on making it into a floating shelf.

Viera: Its still so warm here in Houston, its nice to be able to shop under the sun!
