Happenings at Rustic Star Antiques

Hi everyone, 
It is Memorial Day weekend and my youngest Grandson, Austin is visiting. Today he wanted to set up a table outside Rustic Star Antiques, where I have a booth, and sell his rubber band jewelry and  ice cold lemonade. So being a softie, I said that of course I would help him and got permission from Melinda, the owner of Rustic Star Antiques. Above is a photo of Austin with his wares! He had a fun day and sold some of his beautiful bracelets, as well as some cold lemonade.  While he was selling, I worked in my booth and did a bit of cleaning and organizing and took some photos of things in the shop.

Above is his jewelry display. They really are very cute!

Melinda is making a lot of up-cycled  (new word!) things. Check out the tier of objects in the center made  into a bird feeder or server. It is so pretty that I would definitely use it as a server for fruit or other tidbits. It would be great for tea time!

Here is Sally, one of the store's stuffed mascots. She is dressed for a Spring tea, no doubt. I love the lamp shade covered with lace and check out the hanging candle holder made with clear glass teacups and saucers. That Periwinkle color is gorgeous, too.

In my booth, I have some blue Granite ware on a tea card. Even blue gloves!!

More of my booth, where I have some of my own paintings and other art work on display.
The live mascot, Shamus.

Another of Melinda's creations. It was made to be a bird bath, but honestly I would use it on a buffet, I think. Hope you enjoyed the little antique tour and have a good weekend!


  1. Some lovely things there Egretta - though Shamus looks a little bored! I agree that the bird-bath is far too good to be used as a bird-bath.

  2. Very a beautiful antique tour for me! The bird bath is just so awesome!

  3. Looks like you had a fun and busy weekend. Your booth looks really pretty and I like the bracelets Austin is selling - a little entrepreneur in the making.
