Mary Sitting Head Shot


Hey, y’all! I’m Mary Meier-Evans, a Native Texan, Travel Addict, Antiques and Vintage Collector and Dealer, and crazed needle-pointer who lets my curiosity chart my path.

I’m also a wife and mom of four amazing people, and I gratefully embrace the twists and turns of life, because really…LIFE is an amazing gift!

I have an undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University, with particular focus on English, Education and Art History, and a Masters degree from The University of Texas at Dallas in Humanities, I love all things Art, Music, History and Literature!

My favorite travel-partner-in-crime is my darling husband Will, whose voracious affinity for collecting everything from American Folk Art to Military artifacts, photography to turn-of-the-century Flash Art, has led us to to explore many deeply interesting places around the world.

As a Travel Writer and Podcast Host, I love to share my travel experiences and tips with my audiences. You will find me mapping out a plan for the next adventure.

With an eye toward Empty Nester Travel, and will lead you to unexpected places, introduce you to fascinating people, and hopefully spark a little curiosity within you! I am a Travel Writer who brings thoroughly researched and curated information on travel, restaurants, art and culture, shopping, History and much more.

For me, Travel and Antiquing go hand-in-hand, and we are always gathering treasures along the way.  Some we keep, and others find their way to our Antique Booth at Benny Jack Antiques on Riverfront Blvd. in Dallas, our booth at Forestwood Antique Mall in Dallas, or right here on my website….in my Living With Vintage Shop.

I’ve enjoyed helping many clients in the Antiques & Needlepoint Industries learn to better utilize Social Media to market their businesses.

And I love to help clients find the best avenues to sell their Antiques & Vintage, whether they are downsizing, selling an Estate, or simply selling one or two pieces of their own.

If you need a little help (or a lot) don’t hesitate to reach out!  I can always be reached via email at marythecuriouscowgirl@gmail.com

I’m a modern-day Cowgirl, inviting you to spend some time with me, exploring together.

Giddy up ya’ll! Let’s enjoy the journey together!
