Things never seem to be slow around here. We had a wonderful open house on Friday night and turned around on Saturday to get ready for the Round Top Antique festival. Most folks probably don't wait till 5 days before they have to pack to leave to start working on their projects except those of us who are self-professed clueless and unprepared shopkeepers. This is a daily struggle for Jay AND myself. I even have an "unprepared" girl scout badge that I wear so unproudly(I don't think this is a word, but clueless fellars are allowed to make up words). Soooo...if there are any other Round toppers who are just beginning to prepare...take heart, there are others out here who are right there with you. We made a beautiful bouquet of our recycled flowers to brighten our booth!
These are always sure to bring a smile to any junk lovers face. Then there are the lamps. These are usually our biggest sellers and this year we have hundreds of new ones. We have lamps from vintage columns, gorgeous antique fencing, french gates, old tractor parts, turtles, metal horns, and just about anything else you could dream of. I am afraid that Jay may turn in to a lamp soon.
If you have never taken the journey to Round Top and you love junk, you simply MUST add this to your bucket list. It is fun beyond fun. Just be sure to plan on staying for a few days because you can't see it all in a weekend! We will be setting up at Marburger Farms, booth H-6, from Sept. 27 - October 1. Come by and say Howdy if you are in the area.
