MimiToria writes: Man Sue, I've been in suspense since November when we went to the open houses together and you told me you had a new book being released in March 2009. I can't wait for it to be released and I'm sure it will be top notch as eveything you do is.
Thanks for the tease, oops, I mean sneak peak of the great stuff we have to look forward to.
I'd love to go Texas and join you all, but this year just won't be the year for me. Hopefully, another time.

I know many of you have not been able to leave a comment to this post and the DVD excerpt . Just wanted you to know that we are aware of the problem and doing our best to get it solved. Thanks for your patience and I'm glad to see by the "awesomes" that you are enjoying the post. In the meantime if you have any questions regarding the Texas itinerary please feel free to email us at the JUNKMARKET!

Thanks again and take care,

GardenAntqsVintage writes: I'm really excited about your new book coming out and can't wait to get my copy. I'm also very excited to be selected as one of your places to hold your book signing event. Marburger, Uncommon Objects, and Leftovers are all on my list of favorite places to go and find great things and I know they are equally as excited that are going to be there. See you soon, Theresa Posted: 10:43 am on February 15th
