There was shopping as far as my eyes could see and as far as my feet could walk.
I just went from one awesome booth to the next. Most of what I found was in Warrenton. I also shopped Giddings and Fayetteville.
I ended up falling twice on my trip. No one said I was graceful. The first time I fell was when we were buying the trailer. The guy we bought it from had a Segway. When he offered to let me ride it, I jumped right on. He gave me a little lesson on how to manuever on it. He just didn't get to the part about how to get off of the thing. When I went to step off, it put more weight on the right side so it started to turn that way and sent my feet flying. I scraped up my elbow a little.
The second time I fell, I was watching for my DH to come back with the truck and didn't see the pile of stuff on the ground in front of me. I looked like I was sliding into home plate. I had white pants on. How I didn't get dirty, I'll never figure out.
They were even all set for Halloween.
I have spent far more than I had intended to. I just love all of my purchases. Can you see the gingerbread in the trailer? It came from Galveston. Galveston was devastated during Hurricane Ike. So sad. So very sad. I picked up several tables and chairs, a couple of neat dressers, minnow buckets, post office doors, I also found rusty tin ceiling tiles, chandeliers, and lots of other cool stuff. Now where am I going to store all this stuff?
