Hi everyone,

Our Gypsy wagon and carpet bags are packed and we are off on a magical carpet ride to the "greatest" show on Earth - Marburger Farm Antique show in Round Top, TX. Sept. 28th - Oct 2nd. We love traveling like tinkers selling our wares and mingling amongst the beautiful people and antiques as far as the eye can see. It's just like what I imagine Heaven would be like! We hope all of you will make it to the show to hug our necks and feel the magic. Look for Magnolia Pearl in the November 2010 issue of Where Women Create. Thank you Jo for making it possible. We love you.

Lace, Love, and Laughter to all of you, Pearl.

"There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir, we must rise and follow her; when from every hill of flame, she calls and calls each vagabond by name."

I love "Where Women Create" Magazine and look forward to each issue... Congrats on being profiled! Alas, I cannot make it to this Fall Show *le sigh*, I'm sure it is Magical... but perhaps the Spring Show *Hope Hope*, it's definitely on my 'Bucket List'. And yes, October is a favorite Month for me also... definitely calls out to the Bohemian Spirits!

My boots are shined and I am ready to hit the road with the Tuscan Rose Gypsy Wagon and spend a few days at the shows. I will certainly stop by to see your lovely wares and participate in the hug event.

Nothen like a great flea market, I'm sure you made it all the more special!
Nothen like crisp cool days, crunchy leaves, and the pumkin patch.
Just went to our farmers/flea market here in Mpls, blues music playing in the backround, warm morning sun, relaxed happy souls wonder around with a smile. God I do love fall,can't wait to see the mag.issue. I'll sit down on the hill overlooking the lake.The ducks will fly away for warmer days and the fairy garden will sleep till spring.Yawn, goodnight...

My friends and I had just completed a long full shopping day in Warrenton when your Airstream rolled by us headed back to La Grange. Even though we were thoroughly WHOOPED we perked up and followed you hoping you would pull off so we could get a closer look, but alas we had to turn off and didn't get a very close look! It WAS exciting though....so I came home and googled you b/c I figured with a rig THAT cool, you would have a website. I'm so thrilled to have found out more info. Your Airstream is the BOMB and ONE DAY, I hope to have something 1/2 as cool! Happy Fall Ya'll!

Of coarse it was great to meet you Robin and John, I swear you two such a beautiful couple, you look like you just walked out of a fairy tale book.I hope your week went well. I know I helped it go well at least on the fir$t day! For those of you who have never gone, make sure to go in the spring! Hope to see you both again soon, cindy craine

I spent 3 years hiding in my house. Feeling ugly and trying to understand this things that finally caught me called, age. I collect beautiful old textiles and trim. I havebins of things that I love so much. One day I found you in a magazine and my life began to change. First my wonderful son arranged for the money so I could buy some clothes from you. And secondly, all my beautiful textile came out of their bins and now live in my home. Yes, now it is a home, not just a house. What a joy to see all my beautiful fabrics and trims, ribbons and fringes. I love to dream about the yung girl who put every stitch ' bu hand into these fragile garments. where were they going? Were they so excited? Were they hoping to meet a beautiful man? Ah the history. But mainly, I was finally able to leave my home. I finally had lovely, unique clothing . Clothing that suits me. I am not the typical 54 year old. Everyone asks me about y outfits and complimets me. This help to start conversations. Because of you...I am less lonley. Thank you Robin and John.

I spent 3 years hiding in my house. Feeling ugly and trying to understand this thing that had finally caught me, called age. I collect beautiful old textiles and trim. I have bins of things that I love so much. One day I found you in a magazine and my life began to change. First my wonderful son arranged for the money so I could buy some clothes from you ( thank's a bunch, to the US economy ). And secondly, all my beautiful textile's came out of their bins and now they are all over my home. Lovely to see ! Yes, now my house is a home! What a joy to see all my beautiful fabrics and trims, ribbons and fringes. I love to dream about the young girl who made the damaged pre 1920's dresses that look for and buy. Who's fingers put every stitch buy hand, into these fragile garments. Where was she planning to wear the dress? Was her heart beating quickly with excitment? Was she hoping that a man she had glimped before going to attend? Was she wantonly dreaming that she would meet him behind a bush, and open the flood gates of passion she felt? These dresses took much time and had to be made with the hope of love? Just another few day's, would her dreams come true as she stitched...? Ah the history.
But mostly, I was finally able to leave my home.For the first time since "age" hit me, had lovely, unique clothing . Clothing that suited me. I am not the typical 54 year old woman. Everyone asks me about my outfits and compliments my beautiful unusual clothing. These gorgeous clothes have also helped to start conversations. Hard for me, because I am shy, unless you know me. Because of you..I am omfortable, I look so much better than I did in those overalls that I wore for 3 years straight.The biggest gift you gave me , is that I am less lonley now. Thank you Robin and John.
