Carolyn Westbrook: Live from Zapp Hall

Come One, Come All to the Greatest Show on Earth!

I am talking about the Roundtop Warrenton Antiques Week that only happens twice a year, my friends. I will be debuting my new book!!!!! and you can get an autographed copy, hot off the press. For those of you, who may not know, this is one of the best antique, junkin shows in the world. If you cannot find it here then you can't find it. The show lasts for 10 days beginning officially Friday Sept. 25 at Zapp Hall in Warrenton Texas, but I just came from there and people were already set up and selling. AMAZING. Marburger Farms opens Tuesday Sept. 28th and I will be doing a book signing and a presentation on how to shop French at Marburger Farms, which is absolutely fantastic and inspiring. I am always there for early shopping, racing to my favorite dealers as soon as the fence drops.

My official signing at Zapp Hall, will take place at my good friends Theresa Cano's booth, right outside the door at Zapp Hall, Sunday the 26th, at her fabulous blog party and I believe it starts at 6pm. Check out her website which is Garden Antiques Vintage. I will have books at the Carolyn Westbrook Home booth for signing.
The book made the Publishers Weekly list for fall. Woo Hoo!

We just had a wonderful book signing event at the Creative Connection in Minneapolis and it was super successful thanks to Kevin Haas with Ryland Peters & Small and of course Marny, who keeps me straight on where I am supposed to be and when. Jo Packham and Nancy Soriano put on one heck of an event, and it really was a fabulous gathering of creative women and very inspiring. If you get the chance to go, you should. Minneapolis was beautiful. I have never been and the weather was cool and what a welcome change. I saw pumpkin patches with huge pumpkins and geese all over the place. Thanks to our new pals, the Red Shed girls, Val and Michelle for carting us around to the Junk Bonanza and having dinner with us at the Creative Connection. These girls own a travel agency and an antique business, and they take tours to France. From what I have heard, the tours are fabulous and after being with them, I can assure you that it would be the trip of a lifetime. They are located in Grapevine Texas: The Red Shed.

O.K. I had better see each and every one of you this week at my space at Zapp Hall. I am working hard to make it inspirational and really want all of you to get a signed copy of the new Carolyn Westbrook: The French Inspired Home. We are debuting new bedding, pillows, and home accessories. Bring a truck for loading up, and do not miss this! Come see me and I will give you the best places to shop!!! Be Here:

Zapp Hall
Warrenton TX.

I will be looking for you!!! xoxo Carolyn
