The Lovely Ladies of Zapp Hall

If you like girlie stuff, Zapp Hall is the place to be when you are shopping in Warrenton. Not only is everything beautifully displayed but the dealers go all out to look as fabulous as their wares.

Even a pile of random letters piled up on the lawn in front of The Junk Gypsies booth looks great!
Jill of Gypsy Brocante.

Teresa of Garden Vintage Antiques. She has a true gift for visual merchandising.

This little Airstream trailer was overflowing with beautiful bling.

Love the chaps!

What is truly remarkable about these gals is they can unload the contents of their vehicles and in a matter of hours transform a grassy field into a work of art! Now if I could just get my shop to look the same...!

Love Kelly

Round Top Round Up...Round Two

Here is the second batch of Round Top photos. There was just so much eye candy everywhere that it was hard for me to put down the camera and focus on my shopping. I finally had to have Poopsie put the camera back in the car! The vendors were all so friendly and did not mind my crazy picture snapping. I have been to shows before where a few grumpy dealers won't let you take photos.

Anyhow, day two of our shopping experience was much more pleasant because the temps finally cooled down. Day one was pretty brutal; so hot and sticky! And like they say, "It's not the heat it's the humility!" TeeHee.

I almost bought this iron doorstop but received a gentle reminder from Poopsie that I need to stop buying heavy items because I had to ship it all back to Utah. Since I had already purchased a concrete dog, 5 bowling pins and 2 iron mermaids I guess he had a point. Despite all that heavy stuff my three big boxes only cost me $80 to ship parcel post so I did okay!

Here we are at The Depot which is about a mile up the road from Warrenton. There were some great bargains to be had here.
Poopsie is quite fetching with his warrior accessories, don't you think?

The lady with this booth was quite a character. She had hundreds of doll parts strewn about her stall. She invited us to come back after dark when she lights up all her doll heads. Eeek!

Tamarah of Shabby Vintage Junk. She was on the lookout for interesting bits and bobs for jewelry making. Poopsie and I enjoyed her fabulous Aussie accent and learned some great new words like "portaloo" and "knackered".

Since Poopsie's profession is doors he took a special interest in this item.

There were tons of great old signs like this one but they were all very expensive.
Love the paint by number!
These tiny penny dolls were sweet but they no longer sell for a penny. They were priced at $50 each!
This cute lady had hundreds of beautiful cowboy boots.

Hopefully you are not weary of Round Top pictures yet because there will be more tomorrow!
