30 Days Until The Shows Start

Can you believe it!  That we are 30 days from being at one of the WORLD'S BEST PLACES TO SHOP, the Zapp Hall Antique Show opening day that is.  I can't believe time has flown by so fast from the last show.  Of course you know not all the shows start on the same day and some of the shows open even earlier, so for some of you it's less than 30 days.  And some of the shows open later, like the Marburger Farms Antique Show (more on that in a bit).

There is always an excitement in the air, for me at least, as we near the shows.  I'm always glad as we near the end of September each year (or March in the Spring) because I'll get to see and visit with friends that I only get to see twice a year.  There's also field after field of the coolest stuff this side of Texas, so shopping is another great benefit as well.  That's why I like setting up at Zapp Hall because I am literally in the middle of shopping the fields.

Then, there's the parties that you can go to like the Clutter Opening Day Party (Friday, Sept. 24) and the Leftover's Antique Shop Opening Party (Saturday, Sept. 25) and of course My Blog Party (Sunday, Sept. 26)-I so hope to see your smiling faces there.  Please RSVP here.

If this is your first time to the shows, you have to check out this website to get an idea just how many towns and shows and miles of shopping there is for you.  If you've never been, you're in for such a great surprise.  There are no many places to go to which covers many towns and if you didn't realize how many shows there are, you should check them all out here.

Now speaking of other shows.  This is one place that I never miss going to and it's the Marburger Farm Antique Show.  Just take a look at all these fabulous booths, you will definately want to make plans to attend:
And, here's one more treat for you. If you will blog about your upcoming plans to attend the Marburger Farm Antique Show and let Fancy of Cactus Creek know about it, they will comp your admission to this show (which by the way is $25 a pop AND... yes there's more, you'll get another surprise gift) just for blogging about it. Now hurry on over and sign up, tickets are limited!

In the next few weeks, until the shows start, I hope to highlight shows, vendors, and places for you to see while you are in Round Top/Warrenton Texas area.  You'll need at least two weeks to see it all.  Make sure you bring your cowboy boots and prom dress (these are two items you don't want to leave home without them~you'll understand why later if you don't now)!  See you all in a few weeks, if not before.
