Using the fresh lavender grown on their own ranch, Craig and Dana Stewart share the aroma therapeutic benefits of their favorite scent with a line of lavender-infused household products. Each handmade bar of soap, jar of culinary rub, and soy candle boasts a generous helping of lavender oil or the raw herb itself, allowing the calming aroma to permeate homes.
Founded in 1964, Houston Antiques Dealers Association is just shy of antique status itself. The organization tirelessly promotes the exchange of beautiful, storied goods through its biannual shows, which gather many international antiques dealers and designers together and provide a portion of proceeds to many local charities.
Because the vendors sell thousands of wares—everything from vintage jewelry to heirloom china to antique robot vacuum cleaners—the show can be somewhat overwhelming. That's why the association encourages visitors to attend shows held throughout the year to learn more about antiques and gain the confidence to make informed purchases. Of course, HADA also makes sure its vendors possess a suitable level of expertise, display plenty of enthusiasm, and regularly don a thick coat of dust.
