Location, Location, Location

I have been to Zapp Hall a total of 2 times in my entire life. So, don't expect this to be incredibly detailed. But, if you are a visual person, like I am...you will find this very helpful. I hope! First, let me introduce you to Zapp Hall.
Early trip to Warrenton 09Sept 019
Off hwy 237 in Warrenton, you will turn at the Diamond Shamrock station. Here is the map if you need that visual. After turning, you will eventually come to a fork in the road, go right, and follow the directions of the nice parking lot people. You will have to pay a nominal fee to park, but our show is free. So, there ya go.

If you get to where you are looking at Zapp Hall from this position, to the left of Zapp, you will see the big tent. This is luxury shopping right here. Lots of great sellers under one roof. Head in and peruse. You'll be glad you did. Of course, inside Zapp Hall, there are lots of dealers, as well.

Now, see the concrete steps in dead center of Zapp Hall? To the left of those steps you will see Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage . You gotta stop and shop with Theresa. After you visit T, see that little building past Zapp? That is where you will find The Ms. Carolyn Westbrook. Her front steps are on the left side of the building, as you will see in this picture.
After drooling over Carolyn's linens, stand on her steps and turn around 180 degrees. You'll see this...
Royer's at Zapp
Royer's cafe. The very best food. I can't say more or my stomach will start growling. Better food than I can explain. This food, you will not find in any other show. A-ma-zing. See those cute mattress springs? Go left of them and here is what you'll see...
Early trip to Warrenton 09Sept 022
That is Royer's Cafe on the right, and Zapp Hall on the left. Are you with me? See that sandy patch where grass won't grow close to the end of the buildings in the middle? That is where our very own Miss Talking Trash and Cat Daddy sell their wares. I think the grass refuses to grow anymore, cuz everyone keeps coming back to shop and visit with Debbie and Danny.

Ok. Now. What I am about to tell you is HOToff the presses.
side of Zapp
Somewhere out here, I, too, will be set up. Me. Here. Between Zapp Hall and Royer's Cafe. This location became finalized today. So, if you have heard otherwise, I am sorry for the confusion. This is where David and I will be. Come see us here. Very exciting!!!

Now, turn around 180 degrees and look past Carolyn's. You will see a really big tent shared by Gina and Alan of Country Garden Antiques and Richard of Alston's Old Home Place. You know you need to bring lots of money and your biggest truck and trailer, right?

Whew! There you have it. These are the people that I have personally met, who will be at Zapp Hall Friday, September 25 through Saturday, October 3, 9am-6pm daily. You really must know that there are lots of other sellers and spaces...I just don't know the people. Heck, the Junk Gypsies are somewhere on the other side of Richard. You'll figure it all out. I just wanted to give you a little visual before you get there.

Did I mention I'll be between Zapp and Royer's? Uh huh. It's true!

If you haven't discovered my "About Warrenton" column on the left, check it out. When I update it, the new things appear on top of the list.

Happy Tuesday!
