Okay, this is how I saw/see it ....

Still enjoying my visit to Texas, this one will last me awhile !  One of the things that made me smile was :
Yup! A big pink "privy". What a great idea, and of course, it was in Luck. Those Luck folks thought of almost everything!
  So, you know I DID go to Round Top.  Went through Marburger and Warrenton too. Honestly, if you are looking for it you would most likely find it somewhere on that stretch of road. There are permanent buildings open on most every week end. When I went, there were a lot of tents already set up and stocked.  My interest was to stop at the Junk Gypsy

It is a beautiful spot.
It was also very disappointing. I wasn't the only one who felt that way, there were other folks walking out and grumbling. 
The store is pretty small and it is filled with manufactured goods. T-Shirts, Boots, jewelry, candles...all Junk Gypsy manufactured and all with "We are TV stars" prices.  T-shirts (and we are not talking great quality either) were $35.00. You really had to want to advertise for the Junk Gypsys to shell out that much.
 Now, in all honesty, I don't like to pay to advertise for anyone. Also, they ARE T.V. "stars" so I guess it goes with the territory.  Just be forewarned, if you go expecting to see original/new/creative things you will be disappointed.  I took pictures of the only sorta original items. Glad I made the stop though, because now I know.
  All in all, a great trip and all the bluebonnets, Indian blankets, Indian paintbrush etc. made it a beautiful drive.
Until next time, ya'll bee sweet !

Hi Francie, I like the "Queen" sign, that would be a hoot to have. It looks a little big though! Happy Mothers Day.
