Live from TexasOctober 1st, 2008 in blog
I'm sending you a great big howdy from Round Top, Texas where the junk certainly is plentiful. I'll being coming at you with reports of events, happenings, and of course finds throughout the rest of the week. Yesterday I had a fun filled day at Marburger Farms and ended the day at Leftovers, one of the most amazing stores I've ever seen.
I'll start with Marburger Farms...it was total craziness. My good friend and Texas connection Shelley Widener picked me up at 8:30 AM for a 10:00 AM opening. I (of course) was busy emailing, watching the news, and not quite ready to go when she arrived. Ha, imagine that! We took off at about 9:15 which I thought would be plenty of time as it is only a 10 minute drive from where I am staying. Well, Miss Shelley wasn't kidding. We sat in a car line for almost an hour to get in the show. Next time I'll listen to Shelley. This didn't hamper our day it's actually part of the experience. Our hosts Margaret, Rick, and Ashley were as hospitable as ever and welcomed us with open arms. I had the opportunity to see many old friends and to meet new ones, and of course I did find a few goodies. Shoppers were there in droves, but everything ran smoothly (even the food lines!) They looked long, but clipped along at a good pace. We stayed the entire day and came home for a short rest and clean-up before heading to Leftovers...more about that later.
