Texas Time

It's hard to believe I talked to 2 of my friends and they are already setting up in Texas, and we don't even leave until Monday afternoon! God bless those souls who set up for 10 to 14 days from daylight to dark trying to get every last customer! That's not for me! I tried that for a few shows and it sucks! I would rather be at Marburger Farms for a mere 5 days (with it's grand opening day) and have a decent hour to open and close. Marburger draws such a good crowd, usually the sales are as good in 5 days as they are in 14 days! Plus, there is more ME time to get out and shop for junk. I love Marburger Farms, if you've never been there your missing out. Marburger sports some of the best decorated booths around. The first time I ever stepped foot on the grounds my chin fell to the floor, I couldn't believe there was so much talent grouped together in one huge cow pasture! Of course maybe decorating doesn't interest you, but for me that's what it's all about. It's a way for me to get my fix! Junk is the drug of choice for me. It's so fulfilling for me to take and pile of junk and make it look like a million dollars. So make plans now to come and check out the show!

Have a safe trip coming down and bring back an empty trailer and a pocketful of money. We'll be down next Sat. See you then. Deb

I'm a junkie too, I admit and there's no 12 step program or cure that I know of. Next to Marburger for great shows is Zapp. If it wasn't for feeling like I'm amongst family there I'd move too to Marburger, but I love my show. See you my friend in a few days, T

I really hope to make it down there one of these days. I've always heard good things about it.
I just need to do it!
Have a great day!
