Petticoats on the Prairie Vintage Market

Saturday,     H and I drove over to Levelland  Texas for the Prairie Vintage Market  Christmas show.     I always look forward to this show and am never disappointed! 

Sorry I could 't take a photo of's a big show.......but I did manage to take a few photo's of the booths that caught my eye.     

  They have area's at the show where you can stack your purchases until you're thru shopping and I saw quite a few rusty wagons stacked up...... they seemed to be a popular item.

This was my favorite booth.

  H was visiting with the ladies at this booth while he paid out and found out that they are from Hobbs,  New Mexico.    Hobbs is about 120 miles south of where we live. and we've traveled down there many times.     I plan to visit their shop next time we go.      

The show was so crowded it was hard to get photo's and still be respectful of people that don't like to be in the picture.    I had to delete several of my pics because of catching someone from "behind"!

I loved the metal Christmas ornaments......

Saw Christmas tree' um!

More metal Christmas ornaments......

The Christmas tree's potted in a mail box were all sold out or I would have bought one.     Maybe I can make one!

Flocked tree potted in a chair......

I am always attracted to the booths with farm animal paintings      Painting on car parts is very popular in my area and I loved the white horse on a rusty old car door.

These paintings were larger than most I've seen......

Three cows on a well used water tank.......look at all the lime on it!

The event center that hosts the show is really big.      The vendors just park their vintage trailers inside and sell out of and around them..

The trailers are all decked out......

Some of the bigger trailers have clothing boutiques inside

I would love to have an old airstream.......

Leather Southwest style outfit with bell bottoms 

I had never seen a chest of drawers pull out bed before.....have any of you?

Wind mill blade sections are a popular decorating item around here......
