Houston Fall Market 2013 - Day 5!

It's my final day.  By now I'm on overload!  It's amazing the information you leave with when you attend one of these trade shows.

My flight left at 3:00 p.m.  So I spent a few hours in the morning walking around, looking for what I may have missed.  I probably missed a lot.  What I do know is that I missed one of my favourite Aussie designer, Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches.

A few hours is really all I could handle.  Seriously, I was on overload, in a daze!

So, I sat myself down at the Hilton America restaurant and treated myself to a wonderful smoke turkey wrap and sweet potato fries.

It was delicious! Had I known how heavenly it was, I would have eaten lunch at my hotel as opposed to the Market food court.  Don't get me wrong, I experience some nice Texan food .... it's just that this was worth it! ;o)

I have learned much from this experience.  For one thing, you can bet that when Spring Market rolls around, I will pay attention to the vendors present and make a point to see what would interest me!  My first market has taught me to be more focused!

So, I'm already planning my next International Quilt Market - See you in Pittsburgh May 2014!  I haven't decided if I'm flying or driving.  I'm only a 10 hour drive!  So far, driving is winning .... only because I will be able to bring much more products home. ;o)

Thank you for following my Market Journey!  Cheers!

I cannot imagine trying to do it all in a few days, that is a big building and lots of booths. Those fries look good. I have tried baked ones, but maybe i need to cut them thin and try it fried, can't remember if I did that yet, lol.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
