Dreams Can Come True
I'm catching a plane in 6 hours to Provence, France to meet Tim and Carol Bolton on an antique buying trip. If that isn't a dream come true, I don't know what is.
When Smoot and I decided to open a small storefront on our proprety in Round Top, we were thinking mostly reclaimed furniture and objects either made or acquired from estate sales, flea markets, etc... We had a chance meeting with Tim Bolton of Carol Hicks Bolton Antiquities that opened our eyes to a completely different realm of the market. He and his wife Carol and their 2 children travel to Europe two to four times a year searching for truly unique one-of-a-kind pieces for their amazing store in Fredericksburg, Texas.
After our meeting, we decided to hire Tim as a business consultant/mentor and learn from the masters!! It just so happened that he, Carol, his children, as well as a small group of shopping enthusiasts were scheduled to go on a buying trip with Mary Baskin of Vagabond. I signed on the dotted line and the rest they say is history!

I thank God first and foremost for health, for Smoot, our children and our family, and for this amazing opportunity! My dream is coming true!!
Stay tuned for details on our new and exciting journey!!
