One Heck of A Time

I can't even begin to tell you what a great 10 days I had at the shows. Well, let me start by saying that after meeting Ms. E and visiting with the awesome bloggers that showed up at the blog party, I was one happy person. There was more junk to fulfill your hearts desire, more weather than you could ever experience in a lifetime, and the parties just continued into the wee hours and that was only the first few days at Warrenton!!

We had a great show. We took two trailers packed to the max and only brought back one trailer and yes it was filled to the brim.

I met a lot of great people at the shows, but I want to go ahead and apologize because I am really really bad with remembering names and maybe by the time I post I will have remembered them. I did find a few treasures, I kept some and sold some of them. I have probably at least 30 days of posts to do, so it will take me a while to show you what all I saw there. After all you know Texas is big, right, and the shows are even bigger.

I also had the pleasure of meeting and being interviewed by the Junk Mafia guys (what a treat that was--thanks Aimee and Jolie), more on this later. And, to be featured in the Show Daily magazine, well...I am on cloud 50 (I'll do a post on this later too)!! See I have lots to tell you so hang on for the ride.

Let me start by showing you some of the awesome booths that caught my eye:

Judy Hill at Marburger

Magnolia Pearl-Marburger

Mel and Brian's things-La Bahia show

Shelley's Booth-Marburger

Willow Nest-Marburger

Leftover's Antiques

TOT's booth-Marburger

My booth at Zapp Hall

Donnie's Booth at Gone to Texas Show

Deb's space at Zapp Hall

Peg's Booth-Marburger

This is only a small portion of what I saw. I'll do many posts on all the great things that were there. Stay tuned for a lot more.
