Weekend Warriors

Cat Daddy and I hit the road early Saturday morning heading to the Hill Country and a whole lot of fun. I cannot believe I got in the poodle seat by a man who looks like he's still asleep. But what the heck, at least I didn't have to drive. Our first stop was going to the Junk Gypsys Warehouse sale. Between Mapquest directions and Graycie, our GPS, we still managed to get lost in College Station. But one quick phone call to Jolie and we were soon turning by Large Marge into a sea of cars. Lucky for us, we were VIP's so we got to park close.(Just kidding, just happened onto a spot close to the tent)
This was the first thing my wondering eyes saw. Oh my gosh-junk heaven! It was everywhere as were shoppers.
There was such a crowd it was tough navigating, but we managed with hardly a scrape, bump or bruise.
The pink literally pulls you in. I don't buy pink all the time but I have to admit I'm a closet pink nut. There is just something so girly about it. It just makes you feel pretty.
The Rebal Sistas were so busy, I think we were there for 20 minutes before they knew it. I don't know if Janie ever really got to look up. You talk about girls gone wild! Show us your bling!
I have heard about the big bridal gown sales and how wild they can get. Well, I won't say the buyers were that bad, but it was pretty tight trying to maneuver inside the big tent.
And yes, I know I posted this photo twice, but I'm too tired to go back and try to edit it out. Just chuckle among yourselves at my ineptitude.
I told the girls I didn't know why they worry about shopping for merchandise with this kind of stockpile, but you forget what you have when it's in a warehouse. Wowee Ayy!
This is totally irrelevant, but I never saw so many cute shoppers in one place at one time like this.
Man, I just have to say, I have firewood in my barns compared to this stuff.
I slipped off for a little while to see the latest Baby Gypzette. What a cutie pie, just like her mother. You know, that teeny tiny face and nose. Too, too cute. Is there any perfume that smells sweeter than that of new baby on your skin?
Here's Jolie with friends and extreme helpmates on one of the most beautiful days a junker could ask for.
Take a gander at Thelma and Louise, I mean Amie. Thelma went to college with the girls and they've all been friends a long time. She and her husband are getting ready to relocate up my way. Come on Thelma, I'll leave the front porch light on for you.
OK girls, hold your horses. That's my Cat Daddy bringing sexy back. Eat your hearts out. Gives a whole new meaning to pretty in pink, right?
Even Daddio Phillip was working the crowd and schmoozing with the best of 'em.
Once upon a time, there were 3 little girls who went off to police academy. Whoops, wrong 3 little girls. My three little girls didn't have to leave Texas to make for an unbelievable success story. I don't think there are 3 harder working women in our business and they do it with a smile and class. They're clever, ingenious, fun loving, pretty and I'm lucky to know them. No one is more deserving of success than these 3. They didn't wait for it to find them, they went out and grabbed it with both hands. Let's hear it for the girls!

Awe your pics made everything look even prettier. While we there could you believe didn't take any pics, was overwelmed I guess being in "Junk Heaven"!!

Frippery said...

Debbie, Once again what a fun trip you take us all on. I agree with the closet pink and girly. As a matter of fact I have a post scheduled for tomorrow with those exact two words in it. We are soul sistas for sure! (I had to prewrite all my posts this week so I have time to pack for Silver Bella)I'll take lots of pics but I'm sure my travelog will never meet up to high standards you have set. Hugs, Pam

I love those Junk Gypsies. They always look so good and they are ever so clever. I need to get out more but when you have a shop you tend to get tied down. Thanks for commenting on my blog and I hope to meet you one day unless I already have and just can't remember since I have some-timers that is not all-timers. Heidi
