The words delight, inspiration, and exhilarating cannot begin to describe the experiences I encountered at the Texas Antique Show in Warrenton, Texas. I was taken away by so much talent and friendliness there that I almost didn't want to come home. But, reality kicked in and I knew what was waiting for me at home...like the laundry, dishes, dust bunnies throughout and of course my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter. This great endeavor could not have been made possible without the love and support of my family who stood by me and cheered me on to never give up.
I didn't know what I was doing when I decided to take the plunge and quit my job of 18 years and pursue a crazy dream of going into business for myself. I am so glad that I decided to go to Warrenton and set up shop there for the first time. It is definitely a lot of work but so rewarding that I can't explain the feeling I have now after doing this. If anyone out there is thinking of doing this, all I can say is if you don't do it now you may never do it ever. The people I met along the way and while I was there for two weeks are friends I will treasure ever meeting. I am so grateful to all those that made this "Junkin' Rookie" feel welcomed.
