Adventures at the Round Top Antique Fair!

My mom and I recently took a trip to Round Top, Tx. Here they have the largest flea market in the country, which can span about ten miles in different areas. With a small town vibe and plethora of vintage, this antique fair was reminiscent of Brimfield in many ways. Make no mistake though, we were definitely in TEXAS. From Miranda Lambert wine to a crowd of cowboy boots, it was charming, quintessential Texas, different from where I come from, which is quintessential Tex-Mex. We spent three days walking around, enjoying delicious Southern fare and shopping till we could shop no more. I didn't buy much, but I found a lovely hat and purse I'm obsessed with. Take a look at some of the photos I took of this little adventure!

I would totally display this giant detergent bottle in my house. ha!

This festive house is actually an elaborate boutique inside. Hi mom!

There's an indoor "hotel" where you can "glamp" in a variety of adorable retro campers. We took a little tour. Next time, we'll have to stay there!

Here are some hilariously creepy oddities I came across!

Overall, a really wonderful trip!

Restaurant Week in San Antonio

Restaurant week gave me an excuse to wear this fabulous dress from Gwynnie Bee. I paired it with my new obsession: a pom pom crown. I felt wonderfully fancy!

Hello Tallulah Update

I've been having a fantastic time finding and sharing treasures for my business, Hello Tallulah. I'm eager to find a location and officially start a store, but the fast growth of San Antonio makes it difficult to find the right deal. Thankfully I have a strong support system and it'll happen when it's meant to. In the meantime, I'm looking for an everyday gig. Holler if you have an idea! I'd love to contribute to the community through a new job. I miss the camaraderie of Trader Joe's, but unfortunately there's no room for transfers (shout-out to the Brooklyn crew, I miss you!). 

This week, I took a refresher course on business and digital marketing, which has helped keep my focus. I have a pop-up next week at Brick Blue Star. The last event was fabulous and I loved meeting so many new people. Here are a few customers from the events I've done. Keep track of Hello Tallulah and my slow and steady journey on the business blog!


San Antonio's First Friday!

I set up a pop-up shop at First Friday this month! I hadn't been in ten years so it was a thrill to be part of the festivities. After we set up, my mom and I went to a perfectly pink restaurant called Liberty Bar, where I struck a pose and ate some deliciously crafted pasta. I wore my silly pom pom crown and a new dress from Gwynnie Bee by Rachel Antonoff. If you're in San Antonio on August 25th, stop by my next event!

Kristina'a New Life in Texas!

I've officially been in San Antonio, Tx a few weeks. Coming from New York, it's quite an adjustment. Living at home and learning to drive are just a few ways my life is totally different. I'm full of anxiety and excitement for so many reasons. My transfer to Trader Joe's fell through, but lots of doors have opened! Old friends welcomed me with open arms and surprisingly, I'm dating someone new. It's a welcome I couldn't have anticipated. Of course, I miss Brooklyn and I miss my old apartment, but things are happening here. I hope this moving momentum keeps going.

On that note, I'm happy to share that I will be a vendor at this year's San Antonio Vintage Expo, happening this weekend. If you live in San Antonio, please stop by! The event should be a blast. There will be swing dancing, vintage cars and a variety of retro treasures. I've worked at nearly every vintage store in NYC, not to mentioned acting as vendor for a Brooklyn designer. This event is right in my wheelhouse, but it's the first time I'm doing something real for me and my brand. Hopefully it's just the beginning! I'm making my dreams come true one step at a time. I'm super excited and want to share it with everyone I know. I hope to see your gorgeous face there. Learn more about the event here.

On a side note, I have a super exciting project coming up that I will talk more about soon. Let's just say.....it involves travel!
