Whats wrong with this picture? My new best friend Chris and I are hard at work while everyone else is shopping Marburger. Oh well, we all gotta do what we gotta do. Dont feel too sorry for us though!
When you see this sign, you know you have arrived at Marburger Farms. Helloooo Texas!
Ive known these two for a long time. Fresh from Iowa, but youd think they were native Texans. Brad ans Sundie Ruppert are amazing craftsmen. Learn more about them and what they do at www.vintagesculpture.com.
Here is a closer look at what Brad and Sundie create.
This young gentleman is new to the junking world, but you would never know it. He has an amazing eye! Meet Beau Reichert. Hes just getting started so well all learn more about him in the days to come.
In light of the economy this caught my eye. It is very cool. We all need something to smile about!
These of course are some of the goodies I bought. Following the golden rule of Dont let your eyes be bigger than your Volkswagon Bug, I need to keep in mind what will fit in my suitcase!
Beaus booth. All I have to say is WOW!
Her is a lovely woman making a difference in the world of vintage textiles. Creating beautiful things from cloth for the way we live today. Visit Carol Phillips at www.embellishmentspillows.com.
The food tent. Its all Texas, baby!
The site of these got me all geared up and ready to junk!
At the end of the day I was questioned by the antique show police. Something about having too much fun! More to come.....

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.
