there is no denying it. there is no better place on earth than texas antiques week in the spring.
hashtag i’m not even kidding.
it’s like the sky opens up and the sun comes out to play for the first time in many, many months. it’s wildflowers and fresh buds on the trees. it’s hills of green grass in the wild blue yonder.
it’s. the. bluebonnets. which are always, always worth the drive (as roger creager so perfectly says in his song, “fun all wrong”)
and nestled among all of this God given glory, is the world’s greatest fleamarket. the motherload of junk. the wind beneath our wings. texas antiques week.
and what is it that’s so great you ask? well, of course there is the obvious junk for miles and miles…as far as the eye can see. there’s the PEOPLE…God bless the junkers and all of their eclectic, unique, soulful personalities. there’s the food…did i mention the zapp hall crackers, the legal tender pimento cheese, the coffee bug iced coffee drinks?! holy moly. honey hush. i’m hankering for some of all that righttttt nowwwwwww. get in my belly!
but there’s also something more. something oh so much more. it’s something in the air. it’s electric. and everyone feels it. it really and truly is a happy place. everyone is happy because everyone has chosen to be here. junkers and shoppers alike. and everyone is grateful for being here. instead of shopping under fluorescent lights or sitting at a desk, you are out in the great wide open surrounded by junk. where you park in a pasture instead of a parking garage. where you don’t use your cell phone because you probably don’t have reception. where you let your free spirit loose and you channel your inner junker.
there’s a reason we call it junk therapy. for those that have been, you know why. if you haven’t, then what in the heck are you waiting for?
