We had a lot of fun in TX after I got adjusted to the roughing it life. We had planned on camping in the back of my friends enclosed trailer which has air conditioning. I had to use a public shower and brush my teeth outside!I know the horror huh? All in the name of keeping expenses down.
I had a problem sleeping in the enclosed trailer I had no idea I was claustrophobic. The first night I tried I had a panic attack so moved out to the truck to sleep where I could see out! That is where I slept for the next 12 nights, and believe me my back can attest to uncomfortableness of the truck!
Once I got adjusted to this sorta carnie life I started having fun and starting meeting such nice,talented,and fun, people from all over the USA. We ventured out to see what other vendors had to offer and there was some amazing and inspiring things!
We made it out to Marburger Farm where a lot of the more famous people sell like Magnolia Pearl. The things we saw were beautiful and inspiring! I will share a few pics of some of the cool things.

I have to be honest the Junk Gypsy's had some cool stuff but I was kinda disappointed at how merchandised their booth was. It was a lot of t-shirts,jewelry,and mugs etc. I didn't see a lot that they had made. I was hoping to be awed by their booth but I felt kinda ripped off. I guess I was hoping for more inspiration from people who have a TV deal.
We did sneak over to Marburger Farm where the really expensive stuff is and Magnolia Pearls booth is. I will say there were some really amazing booths that made me feel like our booth was just a small time booth. I think their were some really cool and amazingly creative people there. Gave me hope that maybe someday I can reach that level!
