Hey, Y'all! I know most of ya think October is all about Halloween, but for many JUNKERS it's about getting to as many vintage markets and antique shows as possible. Luckily for us, there are a whole heap of fabulous JUNKIN' shows coming up in the next few weeks here in TEXAS as well as a Lone Star-sized book festival where I'm thrilled to be participating as an author signing copies of First Monday Murder
Post-TX Fall Antiques Week the JUNKIN' fun commences again this weekend, Friday, October 18-19 when the Rodeo Queens host Petticoats on the Prairie Vintage Market in Colorado City. Vendors from OK, TX, and NM will be displaying their wares in the barns at the Mitchell County Fairgrounds. In addition, lots of Sisters on the Fly will be there with their incredible vintage trailers. Junkers will be in for a double special treat as In Ca-Hoots will open up in downtown Colorado City with a variety of

vendors featuring antiques, vintage goods, and needful things. 
If you happen to be closer to Austin, it's City-Wide Garage Sale weekend at the Palmer Events Center.
Many of my friends will be there with their own unique collections of vintage items, including Garden Antqs Vintage.

 Just west of the City-Wide Garage Sale,
Fredericksburg Trade Days will be in full 
swing with lots of great vendors including the 
fabulous JUNKIN' sisters of Sisters Treasures.
Are ya keepin' up with all this? 
Take a deep breath...there's 
The next weekend is the Hico Antiques Show.
AND a little further south down the blacktop it's also The Urban Market Houston 

Antique Show.
if you're near Austin...stop by the Texas Book Festival where you can grab some great  

books, meet fascinating authors, and stop by and say, "Hi." I'll be signing copies of First Monday Murder at the Writers League of TX tent Saturday, October 26 from 4-5 p.m.
The following weekend is 
First Monday Trade Days in Canton
Rusted Gingham Barn Sale in Gonzales. 
I'll be headed to Rusted Gingham with a trailer-load of Garden Cat goodies and a theme I'm calling Victorian Cowgirl Chic. 

After that, I'll be reloading the trailer and headed to JUNK Hippy Roadshow in Waco with lots of 
vintage Christmas goods as well as a load of adorable pink, mint green, and white farm/cottage furniture. 
Whew! As usual, so much JUNK, so little time! 
Happy Junkin' sweet friends! 
Hope to catch up with you somewhere down the blacktop. 
Until then, 

 Peace, love, and all the
 good stuff, y'all!
