In Search of Venues

Elizabeth and I are currently hitting the pavement and checking out various different craft shows and market days looking for the best venues to house our booth filled with whimsical jewelry. Today's hunt brought us to the historic district of Gruene, Tx. Gruene is shock full of antique stores, locally owned eateries, produce stands, Harley Davidsons, local music, and some of the best tubin this side of the river.

Vendors at The Gruene Market Days were all offering their own handmade items. The Market takes place every third weekend of the month on both Saturday and Sunday. This weekend featured a diverse group of vendors and even though it was over 85 degrees and started to rain lightly the market was both busy and had evidence of buyers (lots of people toting around their purchases).

The Gruene Mansion Inn has the most adorable little cottages right along the river. Gruene is located about an hour from Austin and about thirty-five minutes from San Antonio. It is very close to New Braunfels. Check back soon as the quest to find great markets and craft shows continues.
