RHYMES WITH HAMBURGER

A junker may pay $25 for exclusive shopping the first day of the MARBURGER ANTIQUE SHOW from 10 am until 2:00pm.  It is the best $25 spent.  The reason we pay out the nose is so we can view the incredibly imaginative booths and displays these dealers create out of thin air, dust, blood, sweat & tears.  Really.  That and the fact that the shoppers come through like Sherman thru Jawja and buy it up and take it away!  Trust us.  You need to think about budgeting that extra dough-ray-me in for the Spring Show.  We were blown away by the beauty, talent and uniqueness of it all----and that is just the dealers!!!!  Here is the first booth we saw:  Peg & Jon Van Dyne of FRENCH VANILLA...Oooo la la and OMG.  We voted this booth our personal best----lest we injure feelings of our other friends we loved ALL your booths and bow down to your collective/individual talents. xooxox

OMG, OMG, OMG! I so wish I could have seen this. Just no words and you know it's not easy to shut me up. I especially love all the sold tags. Great job capturing the moment. Debbie

Peg is the best! She laid down the tracks for the rest of us! She is the mother of all great booths. She has a great eye and finds the coolest stuff! Oh, and lets not forget John, he is a crucial part of the team! TOT

Hey Chippy girls, you really know how to pick em. I just loved looking at Peg's booth. I am sure nothing can even come close. One day I will get out there, but for now just living it through your eyes!

Hi Chipsters!! Thank you so much for the kind words. I'm not coughing so much but still sound like a croaking frog... TOT is right, I couldn't do this w/out my Jon. We are a team!! I'm always amazed that I sell anything in TX. It is always full of great dealers with even greater stuff!!! So blessed that you two are part of it now!!! blessings and kisses Peg

Oh, my sweet lil' ol' southern baked honey ham-don't you all remember us all talking about prom dresses in Ms. T's booth and I told you to git on down to Diane's? I thought you went 'cause you were talking about the white cowboy kicks for $35 the next day and that's where I saw them. Just how much did you have to drink, my lil' honey pie? Deb
