Today we headed out to Warrenton Texas to check out the scenery. We loved driving through Brenham and Burton and seeing all the pretty blue bonnets that are already blooming, even the dog wood trees are budding. Isn't it too early for these, but maybe they think it's already Spring with the crazy Texas weather we've had. Once we hit La Bahia, Carmine and Round Top it's a really different place minus all the people and stuff that you would normally see during Antiques Week. Where were all the bumper to bumper cars and crazy women passing in no passing lanes to hurry and get to a show before all the goods are gone. Yes, one season a girl in a black Suburban was in such a hurry to get to Marburger she was passing in no passing zones just to wait in line for the show to open. Crazy, but I've seen so much more I could tell you, but I'm sworn to secrecy because what happens in Texas stays in Texas (ha ha)!!
You could tell the show promoters are getting their fields ready to welcome the crowds that will start arriving in less than two weeks. I have several friends that will already start heading that way around March 15, so it'll be here before you know it.
Here's what the show grounds look like during the year, without the shows going on:
Zapp Hall right where the Junk Gypsy's normally are, where's the suburban:
Marburger Farms looks really different, no people, tents, or cars lined up blocking the traffic:
Here's Clutter, minus the clutter of people and stuff. You can see Ex-Cess and Cole's in the distance:
Last but not least was Bar-W. No Renee or Susan could be found, but wait a few weeks and this place will be transformed as well.
Are you getting excited about these shows. I sure hope so, there will be lots of cool things I'm sure and there are always great people that come out. In one of my future posts I'll be showing a map where all the places not to be missed are. Happy trails!!
