Texas Tuesday ~ First Monday

Texas Tuesday

Did you know that the longest running Swap Meet and the largest Flea Market
is right here in Texas?

Most Texans know this but it amazes me how many have not ever been.

An antiques collector and all around lover of the unusual, this is my heaven on earth. They say, "If you can't find it on 1st Monday, then it probably has yet
to be invented" 

Last year before Christmas some of my girlfriends went and I was
able to not only get some wonderful Christmas gifts but also
some really cute blinged out tops and shoes.

I also found some of the most unique Christmas decorations.

1st Monday has ran continuously since the 1850's so they must be doing something right.  They have over a thousand vendors with over hundreds of thousand of guests in the 4 day event once a month. Some booths are in Pavilions where as others are just outside on the grass.

Here are a few pictures that I pinned off of Pinterest to give you 
a little visual idea of some of the craziness of first Monday.
