Texas or Bust ....

Almost as soon as I'm back from California ... I'll be roundin' up my gypsy gals, loadin' up the caravan and headin' West to TEXAS ... for Round Top's Antique Week !!

First stop:
Zapp Hall and Theresa Cano's blog party!
I'll be peddling some of my dresses, jewels, and accessories at the party,
please stop by and say "Hi!"

Second stop:
A can't miss show, I'll be spending lots and lots of time shopping this one, for more info click above. .... this is where I hope to soak up all the goodness Magnolia Pearl has to offer!

Third stop:
I may be a wallflower ... but this I don't want to miss! I'm already planning my outfit!

Fourth Stop: 
Some R&R ... here's where we'll be hangin' our hats when we're not shopping or partying!

Since this is my first time to the shows ... I need ALL of the advice, suggestions, can't miss this, tips, secrets, etc. ... if you're willing to share I would surely appreciate it!!

Where will you be? ... will we have the chance to meet ?? ... counting down the days till TEXAS!!

I have been before as a shopper, and will say that it was the BEST junkin girl trip that I have ever been on!!! Dress "cool" is my best advice and just HAVE FUN and take it all in!!! Happy Junkin.....Cathy aka GGJ

  15. Hey sweetie!
    Well...this will be too many years to remember of me shopping the show (over 15 now). Fortunately for me, my home and store are less than 60 miles from the greatest shopping adventure in Texas. I will not be going to the blog party, but, I definitely am always at Marburger! Maybe our paths will cross. If not, have a GREAT time down here in our part of the country and have plenty of water on hand and a HAT!!! It is very hot down here this time of year....Have a safe trip! xo...deb
