Warrenton in Review, Part 1....



Dumb blonde confession right up front:
About 60 miles down the road, I realize that yes,
I've brought my fancy schmancy digital camera, but that no,
I've left the rechargeable batteries at home. Just great.
So we picked up a couple of disposable cameras at H.E.B.
(to you non-Texans, that'd be the greatest grocery store chain on God's green earth),
and I vowed to just make do.

Here's the skinny if you're new to all this talk of Warrenton... here and here.

My booth space opens up in just 6 days, and this was only a one day trip.
The mission at hand was to cover as much acreage as possible
and score some really good deals to stock my booth.
Mission accomplished on both counts!

My wonderful workhorse of a huband gallantly pushed my
Wonder Wheeler all day long, made numerous trips to the car
to unload treasures, all the while remaining good natured and tireless.
Methinks he's a keeper. Oh, and it's his birthday today! Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

There's so much to share, so let's just get to it.
Oh, and if I post a pic and don't credit you or your shop,
please, please forgive me! I can match most of the pics with the right dealer,
but hey, I'm the idjit that forgot the batteries, remember?

First up, here's a pic of me and the oh-so-fab Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage.



She's set up right outside Zapp Hall, and for my money, 
she has some of the very best merchandise I saw all day. 
She is an absolute master with display and setting up vignettes. 
I'm only sorry that my accursed $5 camera didn't capture all the shots 
I snapped. I did manage to get a nifty shot of one of her girls, though....


Theresa was there with her husband Cruz, 
and I was instantly met with warm hugs of recognition. Good people.

I was fortunate enough to get to meet several other blogging buddies, 
each one just as nice and genuine as I'd imagined.
Between Royer's Cafe and Zapp Hall, 
Mindy from Primitiques 'n Poetry is set up.


Isn't she just the cutest little thing?

She's another master artiste from my must-go-see destination shop,
Winnie and Tulula's. This is her first trip to the big show,
but you'd never know it from a quick tour of her tent. Wow....








Girl's got mad skills.
I purchased this sweet little silver vase and platter from Miss Mindy...


She and her boyfriend David, who endeared himself to me 
always and forever when he gave me a furniture painting tutorial, are a great team. 
He's a pro-photog, so check her blog for more pics. 
He was snapping away, and it's a safe bet that his shots look better than mine.

Just to the left of Zapp Hall and within shouting distance of Theresa's tent 
is the awesomely awesome Troy from Junk Exchange.


 I think I remember him telling me this was his first trip to Warrenton, 
but I'm sure it won't be his last. His tent was always packed, 
and he and his partner Rod make you feel at home the moment you meet them.  
Look at the pretties I acquired from Mr. Rash...


Look at that darling nightstand! And ya know what else? 
He has some of the best prices I came across.


Ironstone I scored from Troy. My momentary nemesis Theresa 
was scoping out the Ironstone while I was there. 
I put her in a headlock and walked away with the spoils. 
(kidding, of course. Theresa is a doll).

Random Warrenton Awesomeness...





Right about now, I need to head outside and start cleaning some junk.
Booth opens up in T-minus 6 days,
and I bought a ridiculous amount of stuff.
I have way more pictures to share than I have time,
so please pop in all this next week for LOTS more pics
from my all-too-short day at Warrenton, and for the scoop on Debbie, Cat Daddy, and lots more!

One more thing, if you like my apron, please visit my friend Bunnie at
Apron Unlimited. She made mine, and it got raves in Warrenton.
She'll be more than happy to make you one, too.

Warrenton 101....help a newbie out!

I'm going to be making my very first trip up to Warrenton next month, and to say that I am psyched would be a gross understatement.

Sooooo....I am in serious need of advice, tips, any info you can spare on how to make my first trip to this Junk Mecca a memorable one!



I seriously want to meet as many of you there as possible,
but sort of feeling like I'll be crashing a private club
to which I'm not yet a member.

Yeah, I know. Note to self below...


Those of you who have been so wonderfully kind to me,
who have inspired me with your talents and motivated me
with your encouragement, drop me a line!
Let me know how to reach you/where to find you at Warrenton.
There's a great big Texas hug waiting for ya if ya do!

XOXO,
Anne
