Show Season is HOT! A show in any Direction...
There are so many show coming up, this weekend alone there are three, right here locally! Of-Course by Locally, I mean within driving distance and still ending up in your own bed. We have the Houston Glass Show in Rosenberg, the Funky Junk Round-up in Waco and Fredericksburg Trade Days, technically a trade days weekend... but it will count! We have traveled to all three at one time or another and still laid our heads down on our own pillow. The Close choice for the Huntsville area is the Rosenberg Show. If you love glassware, this is a great show. If you happen to miss it, don't fret, there are two a year. There is also a great antique show in the building next door. MY FAVORITE part of the Glass Show. There are several shops downtown Rosenberg, one even offers puzzle shaped cookies and allows you to sit and work on their puzzle of the week. There is a Great Mexican food shop (Bob's Tacos) and a great old fashioned Soda Fountain, both have great food. The Waco Show, Funky Junk Round-up is a great blend of Antiques, Funky Junk, Re-Purposing, Handmade items and more. The promoters of this show are some of the hardest working people I know. They produce so many shows in just one years time, Montage Festivals is simply amazing! If you like to do a good show... this is where it's at. From a one day show to a three day show, they make it happen seamlessly! There are so many great shops in the Waco area, you may have to pick and choose, it is hard to hit them all. The shops of La Salle and Junk in my Trunk and Junk and go Chic and several in between, all on La Salle. There are several shops downtown also... Junk Couture, Junk.A.Funk on South Strickler and Junk Exchange. Fredericksburg... where to start, with the great Antique and Junk stores, wine tastings, the seed company, the wonderful shopping, excellent eats... stop me at any time. If you have never been to Fredericksburg, it is a must! The Trade Days is the third weekend of each month and not to be missed! You will be overwhelmed with things to do in Fredericksburg. I envy you if this is your choice for the day, leave out early, you will be getting in late! if you can, stay over and hit the Rosenberg show on Saturday or Sunday, depending on what day you go. No matter what you do this weekend, sleep in, jump up early and hit the garage sales, cook outdoors or go out to dinner, go fishing or even laze around the house... be safe and stay hydrated! God Bless you all!
