30 Days!! The Countdown Begins...

until the Round Top/Warrenton antique shows begin. Today, marks 30 days until the antique shows start!! If you can't sense the excitement in this post and from other posts, just go back and read the previous ones! I always get so psyched about the upcoming antique shows. I'm not sure if it's because I know I will be in my element, or if it's the thrill of the hunt (what new junk will I discover), or mainly it's because I will get to visit with my friends that I only get to see several times a year, or if it's because I'm looking forward to the shoppers that I consider friends, it's the one time of year (okay well twice a year) that I take a vacation from my regular job to sell at Zapp Hall.

To all you junkers, do you have your calendar's marked, your prom dresses cleaned, your cowboy boots shined, and your list of the junk that you've been searching for made yet? If not, you better get started, it'll be here before you know it.

Mark you calendar for this huge event!! It's really huge!! The time of year where hopefully the weather is a bit cooler in Texas, but you know the weather man doesn't promise anything because come on it's Texas. We normally wear shorts at Christmas!! But, you can be guaranteed a good time with friends and miles and miles of junk (fine antiques if you insist) in any direction that you can see. Show after show, cow field after cow field of tents, people, and the coolest things that you will probably only see at these shows. Over the top displays from some of the post talented artists that come from all over the country to sell their things. If you've never been, quit hesitating, make plans to come out. The kids can manage without you for one day and besides you deserve it!!

I leave you with these inspirational displays:
