Going to the Roundup

Listen....Up....    I love awesome places to shop, I love awesome  things and I love awesome prices!!

For a couple of weeks now, I have been so excited about the "Funky Junk Roundup" that was coming to Tyler, Texas...on February 16th, which was this past Sat.

Isn't this a great name, Funky Junk Roundup?  This roundup was a one day event that offered it's buyers a combination of unique items as well as antiques and vintage items.  For me, this was going to be a dream shopping day.

Wouldn't you know it.....on Friday morning, I receive a text from Sam, telling me that we were going to be making a road trip this past Saturday to check on some grape vine cuttings.
Yikes!  This meant that I would not be able to go to the event that I had so patiently been waiting to go to for several weeks now.  

I told myself that it was going to be OK......just go and enjoy this road trip with Sam.   On Saturday morning, I gathered all my things that I usually take on a small trip (things like my camera and bag, my pillow, the iPad, makeup bag, and CELL PHONE) and loaded them into the car.  

We had been gone about an hour when Sam received a phone call from Shanda....She was having a small problem with her car.   Sam told her what to do to fix the issue, and then he and I stopped at a McDonald's for a biscuit and cup of coffee.   After we got back on the road, we drove about 5 miles and then Sam suddenly turned into a business drive and circled around to head back towards home.  ????  I'm like....What's up with this?  

He said he didn't feel good and decided to make the trip on another day!  Of course....I know what the real issue was.......He wanted to make sure his daughter was OK!!!!!!

I ended up getting to go the ROUNDUP........and YES.....I did make a purchase!

Check it out....

Isn't it lovely, dirt dobber nest and all??  I could not wait to see if I was gonna like it, so I had to put it up there and fill in the boxes with a few items...

Now....for the fun!!  I'm gonna paint it up and make this baby look more than lovely!!  This one single purchase made my day.  Imagine with me all of the things that one can do here.

It can either stand up like it is now, or it can sit flat on a table..
I can just see all kinds of goodies packed into this thing..
Flowers, napkins, unique bottles, cooking utensils....just name it!!

This is great and as it turns out....I had a great Saturday and I'm one happy lady!!

What a beautiful find. I love shopping for those types of treasures. I am glad to hear everything turned out all right.

HI Cutie, Think I told you that I love your blog look. It's so SPRINGY.....

I don't think I've ever known anyone who loves to shop more than you do. You love to shop as much as I do NOT.

These days, I need to downsize ---so getting more 'trinkets' for my house is not going to happen.

However, I am happy for you and your love to shopping and bargains...

Shug, thank goodness you got to go to the Funky Junk show, and came home with a treasure too.

Melinda said...

Glad you were able to go.

Hope Shanda's car is ok.

Well, do show us what it looks like after you finish with it.

How far are you from Tyler? Our children went to Pine Cove Camps for years and years when they were growing up and then went on to be counselors there after they graduated from high school. We love Tyler!!! Our son, his wife and daughter are going to Pine Cove Family Camp this July. It's a life changing place!

Happy week!

This is AWESOME! I would have bought it in a minute myself!!! I REALLY now want to see it again after you have painted and loaded it!! I don't know which will be more fun. I have been meaning to ask, I have never seen green tulips before!
