Binky La Fey


After a bad week last week (Hubby’s Dad passed away) we decided to take off as planned with friends visiting from Tennessee (service is next week so it was sort of a limbo week & this took his mind off “stuff”). JoAnn & Mike came to the house & we hooked up the RV heading to The Hill Country in Central Texas. On Tuesday we woke to a beautiful day & headed to Llano. Theresa (at Garden Antiques Vintage) had told me about a shop there that is soooooooooo much fun. Binkey La Fey what a name for a shop but, it’s cute, fun & full of all kinds of goodies. They had Halloween to the max! Click on the orange writing above & link to the sites to see more.

A fun bottle display out front. LOVE the Two Witches Brew. WHY didn’t I buy that? Below is for Lulu, Cindy, & all of you who like spooky doll heads & parts……..

Heads  collage

I LOVE YA but, don’t get ya! I think they’re spooky booky! Lulu, does the one below make your heart go pitter patter?


A bit more “normal” displays.


Of course “normal” to some is sooooo not to others (my Hubby thinks we’re all wacky)Those bed springs hanging with dyed crocheted doilies made him shake his head for sure.

Display collage

I LOVED the idea of the suitcase on the wall to display the jewelry. Don’t YOU?


And the leggings below with the ruffles are cute (whose legs are really that short?). I would love this made MY SIZE! Just peeking out under a skirt or pair of pantaloons. Cute boots & apron (or is it a skirt?)

Pantaloons collage

In another shop in Llano we found some cute altered lampshades (& a couple of linen tops popped into our bags).

Hope you enjoyed the trip to Llano & all the treasures we found. Also, hope you have a wonderful weekend & a Happy Halloween on Monday. The GRANDS will be here for burgers & chips to be followed up with TRICK OR TREATING! Always looking for a reason to “SUGAR THEM UP & SEND THEM HOME”!

HUGS! Charlene

Sorry to hear about the death in your family...

I've seen a lot done with bed springs but not like that.

Hi Charlene,
So hubs thinks we are all a little wacky!!! LOL! I guess bedsprings hanging on the ceiling, doll heads in jars and funny bloomers might seem a bit odd, but hey, not for us!

Great shop and my guess is that LuLu would love it.
