Junk Salvation in TEXAS part 1

Goodness gracious great balls o' fire! Our Manor, TX show was so wonderful that we don't even know where to begin. The ghost town at J.Lorraine was a fabulous venue for all the great vendors and their funky junk! We posted a few pics from the weekend....but we have so many more so we will be doing a couple of posts on it.

Our vendors were so over the top talented. We were completely blown away 
by their displays and their vintage products. The old building facades truly added to the ambiance of the event. Take a look for yourself....

Thanks to Lettuce Turnip for graciously coming to take pictures and sharing them! 

 We had live music throughout each day and an open air saloon with the best burgers and beer you ever did try! The beer was a much needed libation cuz the sun was HOT, HOT, HOT!!! It truly was a fun filled country fair atmosphere with plenty for all to do, see and buy! 

 The picture below is one of our favorites. It was taken by Billie of All In White Austin. It was shortly after closing time and her lil' junksisters were cruzin' the grassy streets of the ghost town. Super cute!
We also got a chance to meet the fabulous Anne Lorys of Fiona and Twig. She also took some unbelievable photos of our event...which we learned will be in a major magazine...(more news on that later). We wish we could share some of those pics but you'll just have to grab a copy of the magazine to see them. 

We also visited the Country Living Fair in Austin. We will cover that adventure in a post coming soon! 

Next up for us is THE FARM CHICKS show in Spokane, WA. 
You'll want to look for our little corner of the show. We'll have a huge booth with plenty of our TEXAS treasures for sale!!!

Til then sweet friends, 
Linda & Dixie
