We spent the better part of the past week washing and packing dishes in preparation for Artpace’s 7th annual circus themed gala. This event hosted by San Antonio’s premier arts non-profit honored advocates of the organization while showcasing the art of some of the newest artists-in-residence. We were not only tickled to be selected as one of the event vendors, but we were also proud sponsors.
After delivering our loot to the venue in the morning, we enjoyed spending the day in San Antonio. Of course a weekend for us would not be complete without hitting a few yard sales. The King William district (the state’s first historic district) represented well in this department. We were happy to capture some finds that we’ll be adding to our inventory.
This week’s new loot was not found in San Antonio, but we wanted to share before summer got too close. Feast your eyes on our new selection of chippies: rustic farm tables. These little babies would serve perfectly lined up for a head table (seat 14), or scattered throughout the venue to hold food stations. Not only did the lively colors capture our love, but we couldn’t get enough of the red gingham contact paper permanently plastered to the surface. Charming. We imagine the tables covered in mason jars, oil lamps, and wild flowers and surrounded by fire flies and laughter.
We’ll be spending the next week washing, packing, and storing our china for the next event. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in for some tea! And bring some rubber gloves because we might be putting you to work.
With unending love and dishpan hands,
Rhoda and Anna
