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.
The weather is supposed to be wonderful this weekend – s0 if you love antiques you should definitely stop by and check it out! And be sure to
“HI” to Jackie, Sally Wheat, The Fab Flea and Vieux Interiors for me!!!
