Antiques & Vintage | Travel

Hey Y’all!

I’m Mary, The Curious Cowgirl. Welcome! I wear a LOT of hats around here. Travel is my passion, and I share my insights, tips and experiences through my Travel Blog Posts and The Curious Cowgirl Travel Podcast.

In addition, I’m an Antique Dealer. As I travel, I’m always on the hunt for amazing Antiques & Vintage, and showcase my finds right here in my Living With Vintage Shop as well as my Instagram Page @thecuriouscowgirl.

My husband and I are dealers at Benny Jack Antiques on Riverfront and at Forestwood Antique Mall. Both are in Dallas. We hope you will stop by and shop with us!

I also source Antique & Vintage Textiles for Needlepoint Finishing.  Here is where you can shop my latest finds, and wholesale pricing is available to the trade.

Glad you are here!

Getting Social With The Curious Cowgirl

One thing I hear over and over again from the entire Antique and Vintage community is this:  I KNOW I need to be using Social Media to market my business and attract new customers and clients.  But I just don’t know HOW. Well, worry no more.  Because I do!  And I’m excited to show you!!!

The Podcasts

Raise your hand if you also think that podcasts should be more than a way to simply “pass the time.”  I agree!  Both Podcasts aim to do one thing:  offer meaningful teaching, education, tips and guidance for my listeners.  So, if Antiques and Vintage are your passions, check out the Getting Social With The Curious Cowgirl Podcast.  If travel is your bag, then head over to The Curious Cowgirl Podcast.
