Waiting for Pretty


waiting-for-pretty2

And so we’re waiting for Pretty to get home…at least we know she’ll be here before too long. It’s not like she’s in Florida or anywhere like that.

She’s always so busy – going thither and yon – with her business mogul self…and her empire of three antique booths scattered around the area in West Columbia, Prosperity, and Little Mountain.

Plus today she took some of her treasures to another exotic place called Roundabouts which is way, way out in the northeast side of Columbia. Honestly, Pretty has plenty of irons in the fire at all times.

No wonder we have to wait for her to settle down and come home. Sigh.

She’s worth the wait, though.

    They do look impatient. I wonder who is most impatient of all: the one behind the camera and those in front haha. Wow, 3 booths. She must love it. Does she specialize in certain types of things or doodads in general?

    • She has furniture, “smalls” as they say in the business – and whatever else strikes her fancy…which is easily struck!! 🙂

        What exactly does “smalls” mean? Does she like household stuff like china or knicknacks or does she like old snuff cans or tools? You know what I mean? Does she just choose from all the categories of whatever she likes? Other than dolls haha I like the stuff that people really used more so than little Chinese or Dutch children figurines, if that makes sense. I do remember that my grandmother had a salt and pepper shaker collection years ago. I wonder if those pieces are all split up and part of other collections today.

      • “Smalls” are apparently everything under the sun except furniture and books which she also sells out of her personal collection which numbers in the “large” range! 🙂
        She always has salt and pepper shakers available, too!!

        Wow, she collects everything!!! I guess she figures she will find a buyer for anything that appeals to her. I love the large range haha. I know what that is like (the gardener collects, of course). I am always wanting to dump my collections.

      • Please, please, please never tell Pretty you are interested in dumping your collections!! 🙂

        The gardener would freak if I tried to unload so much as a doll.
