Meet DaWN…

{dAWN FitZGeRALD...producer extraordinaire & all-around great girl}

SoME of you may have noticed her at WaRRENTON during the FLeaMARKET last fall…

{AmIE & DaWN...tent set-up...FALL 2009}

she was quite elusive…but her, dean, LiLA, and ChRiS came to TeXAS from across the globe to experience and document the much-talked about and very much-beloved RouND ToP antiques week.

{dEaN & DAWN filming amy allen in the tent...FALL 2009}

BuT let me start at the beginning…

our friendship with dawn first began 3 years ago with a single phone call…we had received phone calls like this before and were always humbled and amazed but this one was different…this one had HEaRT. and SouL. and TRUtH.

DaWN introduced herself as a TV producer, having highly-acclaimed projects on her resume such as IcE RoaD TruCKERS. This time shE was interested in documenting the JuNK GypSY story because it was close to her heart.

and at the point where we had often become disheartened in the past, we found ourselves feeling like we’d found a kindred spirit. ShE wasn’t the biggest or flashiest producer we spoke with…but we knew we had to treat this decision like we had everything else in our business…we had to go with our gut.

So last FaLL, DaWN & company loaded up and headed south…to the AnTIQUES show – where it rained and rained and rained and rained. We worKED. we laughed. we got soaked. By the end of the 2 weeks, we all felt like family…

{hangin' in the tent....}

they entertained us….

{ChRIS & DeAN...providing the entertainment}

serenaded us….

{ChRIS & CaSH BakER makin' sweet music}

and put up with us….

{loadin up in the STuDEBAKER....takin her for a spin...look out y'all, it's about to get crazzzzzy!}

So here we are… 3 yeaRS, a lotta laughs, a-whole-heckuva-lotta-paperwork, endless phone calls, and a couple of hundred sleepless nights later….about to board a jet plane.

LaST week we received HuGE news-we’re moving forward with a JuNK GypSY television show-and now we’re headin out to LA. WiTH a pocketFuL o’ SuNSHINE….
