The life of a junker can be interesting (you never know what you will find):
The garden chairs have since sold, but this cool looking metal tree bench is at the show waiting on you!
And it can be challanging, especially if you are dealing with things like flat tires (the last show we had three blowouts and literally drove into Round Top on three tires!),
Then there's the weather, (if you are setting up at an outdoor show), it could be Hot, Cold, Raining, Sleeting or all of the above. Just take a look at the rain we had during a previous show:

And it's never boring,
Sometimes a little tiresome after you've unloaded, but then you are ready to do it again the next day.
We hit the roads as much as we can can looking for cool things to buy,
(Canton Tx Flea Market)
Then we load it in the truck:
(a previous shopping trip)
bring it home,
clean it up and
sometimes repair it or
pack it up,
load it in the trailor,
take it to the shows,
set up the tent
Unload it (all in the Texas Heat I might add *smile*)
Display it and
(My booth during a previous show at Zapp Hall)
It hopefully goes to a new home.
This show both trailers were loaded down with lots of things and they were so heavy, just packed full of great finds. I've decided that since I really have a huge load that what I've found will benefit you because I'm going to be having a HUGE unloading sale.
So please come by and see if a treasure or two has your name on it.
Also, don't forget the BLOG PARTY is Sunday, Sept. 25 at 6pm. Please bring some kind of dish. Michelle Delgado will do being a demonstration on Chalk Paint and HGTV reps will also be there. See the top of my blog for all the details.
