FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

Awesome store in town

I introduce you to Gracen's. If you love whimsical, elegant and just downright inspiring then you must come to Belton and visit with Ms.Willie Dean Bradford.
This lady is not aware of her immense talent so if you drop by let her have it. Maybe if we repeat it enough she will be able to accept the fact that she is immensely gifted. She offers estate sales services and let me tell you she is the one you want. She will clean, decorate and merchandise your stuff and believe me she will make it appealing to the buyers. I think I have been to estate sales were she have merchandise the pantry!.


Something else, her prices are so reasonable and her merchandise is unique and beautiful, no junk folks. She also have a booth @ Nellies, our local antique mall.


SOOO dreamy.

OK, I'm fortunate enough to do business in this little town called Belton. We are in the heart of Texas, 1 hour from Austin, 2.5 from Dallas and SA. It doesn't get more convenient than this. The shopping in town is really great. We have a lot of beautiful Victorian homes and a really pretty square of Main St. The shops in town keep springing everywhere and the economy doesn't seem to slow down many. We are really close to Fort Hood . The feel is cozy, down home country, simple life and very family oriented town. Being friendly is a requisite around here. We have some of the best barbecue (SHOEPPS) and Mexican restaurants.
I attribute the success of my business to this town and it's people. I have met some of the most amazing folks thru our business and the love of junking for most of us. Tomorrow I will introduce you to Hosanna House and As Time Goes By.

Hey, Marta, I think I will make a trip back soon and see some of the shops you are talking about. And I need to go to Schoeps to eat. They bought one of my paintings to hang in their restaurant. It is the black and white antlers painting and I have never been there, but would love to see it hanging in their establishment! Love the little doll I bought from you today.
