    Texas Light through our front window

    Nah! Just Joking — But Featured So grateful to be interviewed for Bold Journey Magazine/Website. Many thanks for the opportunity to tell my story (Bold Journey is a space to share stories and learn from each other’s experiences.) I went into it thinking that it would be similar to the article we did on Canvas Rebel last October, but it a was a quite different format. To tell the truth, it got me a little out of my comfort zone on several levels, and it’s always good, in my opinion, to shake things up every…

    Happy New Year from Over the Rainbow TX. Make Time for...

    Instead of Resolutions~ I have nothing against New Year’s Resolutions— except that I seldom Keep one in the long run. I do start every year with certain Goals in mind though. However, I don’t kick myself if I fall short or am unable to fulfill my sometimes too ambitious plans. If I have discovered anything in Life, it is that it has to be an organic process, that we each evolve and transform at our own speed, and sometimes in directions that we never anticipated. I have written on this Website during these last three…

The store is running a Sale for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. (Sale…

    Anticipating the Holidays

    Happy Holidays

    At Over the Rainbow, we have a very nice selection of gift ideas, holiday cards and some wrapping paper, Christmas décor, both new and vintage, that you won’t find anywhere else around here, and much more. We are small but we pack a mighty amount of merchandise into this space. We’d love for you to visit and shop. We’re decorated inside for the holidays already, and by next week we’ll be lighting up the night [though always mindful of the Dark Sky Initiative that is keeping our area one of the most beautiful for stargazing…

    The Big Re-Brand

    OTRTX Rebrand 2023

    Changing it Up Besides a Name Change and some design decisions, we are also leaning more toward a circular economy model. We already carry both some vintage and quality used clothing and accessories (belts, scarves and jewelry, etc.). We also have always had an eclectic selection of vintage goods, household wares and decor items. I have dealt in vintage goods through my Etsy shop (recently closed) and other outlets for a number of years. I’ve been a collector since I was a teenager, as was my Dad. It believe it is in the blood.
