Marta’s Room–First Antique Show!


Friday, I drove through the beautiful Texas

countryside over to Marta’s Room on FM 439,

between Belton and Nolanville. Marta has a beautiful

shabby chic boutique, that’s worth the drive any day

of the week but last Friday and Saturday, even more so.

Marta and 20 plus, junk lovin’ gal pals put on they’re

first ever outdoor Antique Show! It was a big success!

Great people, good stuff, amazing prices, in a gorgeous

setting. Everyone had a wonderful time and can hardly

wait to do it again, the first weekend in November. I

won’t be a bit surprised if it double’s it’s size in

vendor’s and quadruple's in buyers. It’s a homerun!!!


There's treasures a plenty and I bought quite a few!

A big thanks to Marta and all her friends for making

this show a reality. It’s easy to talk

and dream

and wish

and hope

but few take action and make it happen. I know a lot of

hard work went into this and I just wanted to pat you all

on the back and say ‘it was great!’ You did a beautiful

job! It was a treat to walk under the big trees and shop.

Thanks for posting this! I loved Marta's shop when it was off of G. Wilson Road on 190 and had no idea where she had moved! I'm so excited to find her again... just sad I missed the show.

Roxanne, thank you for such kind words and for a beautiful post about the show. I always feel very honored when a talented and gifted artist like yourself received my shop in such a positive manner. I will love to meet you personally. Is your house by any chance Ms Delisi's old house? It seems so familiar. It is beautiful and your art and repurposing is just fantastic. Most importantly I love the fact that you are a believer, isn't our God an awesome God? You mention u are new to the area but somehow both you and your husband seem so familiar. Again thank you, be blessed and come visit sometime.
