Okay, let me get this out there before people start running into the streets screaming.
Folks, I have always wanted to come back and open in some form in the DFW area, but in the five years (in another month) that we've been closed, lots of things that I had hoped to have fixed haven't been and with Covid and inflation and this and that, well, I've had to tone down my dreams a little.
In the meantime, I decided to at least dip my toes back into the water before cannonballing. Most of you probably don't know, but the Kid and I had moved out about an hour east of the Metroplex to the little town of Winnsboro. It's an agriculture-meets-the-arts kind of town of only 3500 people. In fact, several friends have property out here and several have visited.
We have a few little antique stores that rent booths to vendors and I took the leap and got a very small space to test the waters. I'll be selling mostly books though I'll also be selling pop culture items and toys and will try to expand my space. The idea is to take over a very large corner of the building and sell out of there. If business booms and I can do it affordably, then I will look for a store front of my own, but for now, I will take this spot and make it mine.
These photos are just a few things that I dropped off today. The Kid and I will be bringing more stuff tomorrow to fill the shelves. New and used everything from genre books, graphic novels, comics, statues, figures, toys, etc. I may even experiment with things that I've never carried before. That sounds fun!
If you happen to be traveling through East Texas, stop by Finder's Keepers Antiques on Mainstreet in Winnsboro. Winnsboro is approximately 22 miles southeast of Sulphur Springs. The store is open Monday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm. Let me know that you're coming and we can visit.
