Grapevine Texas Antique Shopping – Beverly Riley’s Rusty Relics
Don’t forget to stop at Beverly Riley’s Rusty Relics booth – the name says it all – you will see a rusty tinged 1934 Ford fender positioned on a barge board to create a unique, one-of-a-kind table. This was a 1800s barge board that once floated the Mississippi river – it started at the top of the river, and floated down with the goods on it. Beverly said the boards are emerging again and being sold at high prices. “If you looked on the wood from the bottom side you would see all kinds of little bug tunnels – these boards have a lot of character.”
Grapevine Texas Antique Shopping: Full-service Guitar Shop
Leaving the Rusty Relics booth, there are two staircases to get to the full-service guitar shop, a booth with over 10,000 albums. Kenny said they have some very young people who are interested in the guitar loft. He said the younger clientele are getting into the old vinyl records and record players. He said they will soon have a booth featuring vintage video games and they are getting ready to open a consignment shop with furniture. “There may some antiques, but some will not be – this is going to reach a different demographic for us.”
