This week we shot a TV segment showcasing cowboy boots, with ABC 13’s “Stretch Your Dollar” in the lobby of the gorgeous historic Lancaster Hotel.  The setting couldn’t have been more perfect!  We filmed in front of their huge mural of a horse named Phantom, who was photographed standing inside of their lobby in 1927!   Make sure you check out The Lancaster’s special Rodeo Packages and make a weekend out of your rodeo visit.  For more information, click HERE.

This beautiful fringe leather purse we found at Family Thrift Outlet, for only $2, had a stain on the front that we could not get off.  Perfect solution was to paint right over the fabric!

The rain was coming in sideways and hitting our face with sharp points.  Houston got more than 5 inches of rain that day, there was lightening, thunder, high water, road closures, power outages and playing havoc on the Houston area.  Here we are at the ungodly time of  6:30am, all ready with hair and make-up for our ABC, Stretch your Dollar, TV shoot, at the Family Thrift Outlet.

Jen and Pippa are dedicated thrift store shoppers!

Here is the line to get into Family Thrift Outlet Store @ 6:30am (opens at 7am on Thursdays)

I was thinking “most people do this once a year on Black Friday, NOT Jen and I  … we are out here braving the elements to be at a Thrift Store for the 7am opening.”   Regardless of our preparing to be ready for TV , the weather didn’t cooperate with our hair, as you will see, just a warning!

 

The doors open @ 7am on Thursday mornings .... LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN!
