Lo and I made a trip to Round Top over the weekend to see what the Spring 2011 show had going on. As we pulled up to the large green and white striped circus tent, we knew we were in the right place. We were greeted by my aunt, Diane Conlee (owner/creator of Punkie’s Place) & we couldn’t be happier to be there.
Walking into the tent, I realized that reality had left me. Suddenly, I had entered a world of creativity, flashbacks to different eras, fun themes & vintage painted boots. BOLD colors, disco balls, fiesta, glitter, clothing, jewels & antiques galore. Similar to when Alice entered her Wonderland. I could not believe that Diane had done it again. She transformed the space into a junky, funky store in only one week. Each year I am amazed that she has figured out a way to make Punkie’s Place better than the previous show. Punkie’s has become a hot spot at the Round Top shows twice a year, people come from all over the country to see what Diane and the Punkie’s dealers have put together. Not to mention she is extremely fun to be around! We may not be able to venture down the rabbit hole like Alice, but everyone can have the Punkie’s Place experience.
the famous PUNKIE!
If you haven’t been this show, I strongly suggest going to Round Top and seeing the magic for yourself! Lo & I left with so much inspiration we can hardly contain it!
OH, we also have exclusive interviews with Diane (Punkie’s Place) and Hannah (Birthday Boot Co.) that will be published in the first issue of LOLO magazine. I will keep you posted!
