Carolyn Westbrook: Countdown to Warrenton


Once you have been to Clutter, then in the field to the west of Clutter (backs up to Clutter) on the West side...I think that this is Bar "W" field. You can park at the back here. Look for my friend Donna at Curious Goods. She was in with Renee last year and Renee has FABULOUS stuff too, but thinking she is not going to be there this time, setting up, just here to shop. She is right along the fence row, if you go down the trail next to the fence, she is down toward the end of the tents facing West. You will see the wonderful collections as you near the tent. Her merchandise is wonderfully odd and she has very inspiring display on how to use things in a different way, which I love.

In fact, this whole field is great to peruse for great junk.

Forgot to mention yesterday...Clutter also has a little eatery at the show. They have really yummy healthy fare, and a variety of coffees and teas. There is a shaded dining area and is a great resting spot to have a little bite and something to drink.

TIP: Make sure that you have a purse or tote bag with a bottled water. This is Texas and it can get mighty hot in Sept. It is VERY important to stay hydrated. Also, bring a bite stick and put in your purse. Texas also has fire ants and if you happen to get bit while out in the fields, it is good to have a bite stick to kill the sting.

For nightime dining; If you are planning on eating at the original Royers Cafe in Roundtop, you will need to make reservations, and they will ask for a credit card, and it is nonrefundable. F.Y.I.

See you there!
XOXO Carolyn

Cat Daddy has never bit anyone, but he has been known to scratch himself!

I will look forward to meeting you when I swing by to meet Theresa, Mindy and Troy. It'll be my first trip to Warrenton, and I'm plenty excited! Gotta go shopping for my new (and very first!) booth!
Have a great weekend,
~ Anne

Thanks so much for the tips, Carolyn. As a first-timer, I certainly appreciate tips on where to go, besides Zapp Hall, of course. p.s. did you say fire ants :-o ?
