Take a Quick Tour of the Shop

Today's blog has no central theme, just a hodgepodge of ideas. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Who Fixes What


Valerie has this
set of tables for sale.
They wold benefit from
some refurbishing or updating.
One of the advantages of being a part of a group of antique dealers is knowing who repairs and who repurposes the furniture that is inherited, has been owned forever, or just found at a shop like Mertie's This and That. Visit these Facebook pages to see what can be done to these vintage items.
Casey of Sellers Mercantile will now be displaying some of her products at Mertie's This and That. Come by the shop and find out more.

Need a Jacket for Winter?


Woman's jacket at Mertie's This and That
Now at  Mertie's This and That are denim jackets, sweaters, and coats for women. Valerie just added some fantastic barely-used denim jackets in plus sizes. Get them for just $15.00. Mertie has this "fur" jacket hanging amidst the party dresses. 

And there are quilted bedspreads and actual quilts for sale here, too.

Stay warm!

Miniature Horses


I have long been intrigued by the idea of therapy horses. This Facebook page belongs to a group of miniature horse trainers and owners. Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses  These horses are used with ill children, handicapped of all ages, vets, and others. The picture below is taken from the Facebook page.

I have seen a few miniature horses and goats in the Wild Peach Community that is in the Brazoria, TX, postal area. One horse is used to entertain children at birthday parties.
