Broome Closet Booths {CeCe Caldwell Visits}

Hello friends.

The Broome Closet booths at Ridge Antiques
 in Ridge Spring, South Carolina have been more exciting than usual. 

The French gentlemen's chest above, painted by Beth, with CeCe Caldwell paint sold to an unexpected person. 

CeCe Caldwell came into the shop and bought it. 
She also purchased other furniture pieces from us and throughout the store.
 She is taking them back to Arizona where she has a store.
Beth and I were quite happy about that.

Edit: Beth tells me the French gentlemen's chest is painted in Young Kansas Wheat.

The twig wreaths are handmade by my brother in law from his Georgia creek vines.

We have a good bit of transferware.
We love it.
Don't you?

Our garden booth has many fall items. 
We love pumpkins. 
Don't you?

We are  restocking the booths today and tomorrow. 
The Ridge Spring merchants are having a sidewalk sale on Saturday.

We truly appreciate all our customers. 
It is always thrilling to have sales.

Thank you all for your many well wishes for Joe.
 He returned to work yesterday.

peace and joy


  1. Is the blue transferware the "Lochs of Scotland" pattern? I have a set like it in my antiques booth in Mobile! I'm hoping it doesn't sell because I love it so much, but do I need more dishes? NO!
    So excited about the CeCe connection! That is amazing!

  2. Your booths look so enticing...always great to sell large pieces!
