Recently, Jackie Sharbrough purchased The Urban Market and this Sunday will be her first market day as the new owner!   Good luck Jackie, it’s going to be great, as usual.   The only thing that has changed under Jackie’s direction is the location.  Jackie has worked hard to get all the same dealers and even some new ones for the market.  There are always lots of bargains to be had, so be sure to get there early.  Jackie also wants to remind everyone that Saturday night is when we change our clocks back from Daylight Savings Time, so don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed!!!   Jackie also wants everyone to know that the Knights of Columbus will be serving BBQ Sunday.  Tickets are $5 at the gate and $3 after 1:oo pm.  Children are free.  My favorite delivery company, Crowded House, will be on site!

The list of antique dealers confirmed to be at the Urban Market this Sunday is long and Cote de Texas readers will recognize a few names that will be selling their wares:    Sally Wheat, The Fabulous Flea, Vieux Interiors,  Carolyn Westbrook Home, and Found For The Home are just some of the dealers that should sound familiar.  For the entire list of dealers and more information, go to www.theurbanmarkethouston.com.

  4. Wow! I never knew about this and wouldn't you know, I have an engagement and cannot possibly be there before closing. But my experience with these things is get there EARLY or not at all. :) The good stuff always is bought within the first 30-45 minutes...

    Perhaps next year...sigh...

  7. That looks like a fabulous market. It's once a year? Hmmm... Perhaps next year. I'll have to put it on my list along with the April Round Top and Marburger. So much to do and so little money. :-)

  9. Just had to say that I laughed out loud at the comment about you being a OLDER woman and that your blog would not be liked by normal blog readers... I love your blog and because of yours and a few others I have been thinking about jumping aboard the blogging train. Something I did not think I would ever do. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Boy, I'd love to hit that Urban Market! My father had those same silver wolf head jiggers behind his bar! That's so funny.

    Joni, I love your blog, I've been sneaking over here for a while and you are amazing. I loved your interview with Artie, I learned a lot and more about you. Thanks for doing that.

    =) Isa

  16. By way of 'Artie' I am a newcomer to your Blog. Your home is delectable and I enjoyed your informative interview.

    What treasures are posted here. Unfortunately not only do I live in the wrong State, I also live in the wrong Country....smiles. The Urban Market sounds like a wonderful place. Wishing you success in your hunt. -Brenda-

  17. Joni, this market has to be the most dangerous place for the pocket book. Good thing I live in the NW but I am sure that my mother whose decorating flair was unerringly stunning will be there in spirit ;-)

  28. Melissa: I would say go to Indulge - and then right behind it - go to Thompson Hanson nursery - inside and eat lunch there. and if you have a minute or two = go down the street to 2620 Joanel.
