I went to Roundtop and Warrenton this weekend with my friend, Amy. She is one of the kindergarten teachers that I assist and admire and although she is 30 and I am 50, I consider her a good friend. We spent most of the day in the Warrenton area and walked in and out of tents and fields looking for buried treasure.
I have been going to Roundtop for several years now and when I first arrive, I always feel a sense of panic that there is way too much to look at and there is no way to see it all. I am just scanning the booths and hesitant to purchase anything because what if the "real thing that I really, really want" is somEwhere down the road? But then, I get in a groove and just start enjoying being outside and looking at all the junk. For every booth full of good stuff, there are about 75 booths full of the same junk you have in your own garage. So within a few hours, I am exhausted and unfocused again. And panicking because the sun is going down on another year at Roundtop. This is not a major panic....this is the same panic you get when you can't pass up a piece of chocolate cake, because God knows when the next time you might see a piece will be.
We had a good day...and got a little Vitamin D via the sun. Of course, Amy got very pink and is now tan. I got a very red neck that is still tender this morning.
Below are my purchases....
A black & white table runner
A pair of shutters for $20. The price was too good to pass them up. They are on my back deck behind this plant for now.
A cross t-shirt and 3 turquoise bracelets.
The t-shirt came from a booth/shop called Virgins, Saints & Sinners. They had a t-shirt that said "I feel a sin coming on." Check out their website at www.virginssaintsandsinners.com. Cowgirl chic and bling is very IN right now and they had some of the best I've seen.
I even came home with a little change in my pocket...which I consider a sin....
