the wind beneath my wings.

March 19, 2015

there is no denying it. there is no better place on earth than texas antiques week in the spring.

hashtag awesomeness.

hashtag i’m not even kidding.

it’s like the sky opens up and the sun comes out to play for the first time in many, many months. it’s wildflowers and fresh buds on the trees. it’s hills of green grass in the wild blue yonder.

it’s. the. bluebonnets. which are always, always worth the drive (as roger creager so perfectly says in his song, “fun all wrong”)

and nestled among all of this God given glory, is the world’s greatest fleamarket. the motherload of junk. the wind beneath our wings. texas antiques week.

and what is it that’s so great you ask? well, of course there is the obvious junk for miles and miles…as far as the eye can see. there’s the PEOPLE…God bless the junkers and all of their eclectic, unique, soulful personalities. there’s the food…did i mention the zapp hall crackers, the legal tender pimento cheese, the coffee bug iced coffee drinks?! holy moly. honey hush. i’m hankering for some of all that righttttt nowwwwwww. get in my belly!


but there’s also something more. something oh so much more. it’s something in the air. it’s electric. and everyone feels it. it really and truly is a happy place. everyone is happy because everyone has chosen to be here. junkers and shoppers alike. and everyone is grateful for being here. instead of shopping under fluorescent lights or sitting at a desk, you are out in the great wide open surrounded by junk. where you park in a pasture instead of a parking garage. where you don’t use your cell phone because you probably don’t have reception. where you let your free spirit loose and you channel your inner junker.

there’s a reason we call it junk therapy. for those that have been, you know why. if you haven’t, then what in the heck are you waiting for?

the fleamarket beckons…

    I just LOVE reading your blog and your fine, descriptive words about the one and only Texas Antiques Week…’s the Big Top of ”Junkin”,
    The Academy Awards for Junk Vendors and a place where you can find some of the friendliest people in the state of Texas! I am not able to make it this year due to some family issues, and will so miss being apart of the FUN! Know ya’ll will ROCK IT, and be The Belles of The Ball or I should say Prom!!! Junkin Hugs!

    Hey y’all. I just bought over 75 new hats and they will be ready and turned into lovely Hattie Bags soon. Would like to know if I may also be considered to do a trunk show at JGHQ? Would appreciate the feedback. Thanks so much. xoxo Barbara†

    Hello ladies! Love this blog, love all of your new stuff and sooooooooo happy to hear that your shows will be aired starting in June! 2 networks???? Wow, I am impressed! Fell in love with you and your cool stuff last summer and have been following your site and catalog of goodies ever since then! Don’t know how you do so much but I know how much you love doing what you are doing. Wish I lived closer so that I could stop by in person now and then. I do have a friend who knows where Round Top is and said it’s less than an hour away! I may have to visit her some day and then we can do a road trip to your place and buy more stuff! For now, I will continue with my online purchase. Love you and thanks for everything!

      Sorry, my name didn’t print out all of the way! It’s a bit difficult to see what I am typing – it looks faint from here until you accept it. Then it reads out bright! No big deal. Just waned my name to show!
