November is a Busy Month

There are so many events going on for November that as you can see you can shop somewhere every single weekend of this month at one of these events.  Here's what happening in our great state.

Nov. 4-6: HEAP show in Tyler Tx. See Janet's Blog for details.  I went to their first one and it was a great show with wonderful vendors.  The show opens at 9am each day and you'll have three days to shop with your favorite vendors, Jana Jamison, Mo McSwane of Rubbish, Terri Squyres of Gardenworthy, and Stephanie Talley of Fluff.  Wish I were going this time but I'll be out of town. 

Nov. 6: Ann Perry's Open House @ her shop The Tin Rabbit, Melrose Tx. Check her blog for details.  If you don't attend any event this month, this is one place you most definately want to check out.  Ann is one of the most talented person's I know.  She not only creates beautiful works of altered arts items, but she finds some of the best vintage items I've seen.  Just check out these posts here and here that I've previously done on her open houses and you'll see what I mean:

Be sure and check out Ann's Flickr page for more great pics of her home, shop, and what she makes.
