Garage of Good is a charity event in SATX that I have been looking forward to since learning about it in a roundabout way on Etsy. I came across this fabulous vendor and loved her recycled/upcycled fabrics and was thrilled to see that she was located in my new city. I wrote her a message re: a storefront (she's only online) and she replied that she would be at Garage of Good, had I heard of it? No, I had not, but an upscale flea market benefiting a local philanthropy held in one of my favorite areas (also less than 10 minutes from Hunkelhouse) was not something I was going to miss!
And, it was fabulous:

|From cutest baby/kids store, BabyBesos. The Etch-a-Sketch says 'No Hablo'|
|Duck, duck, gnome.|
|Large tree in the middle of the place|
|Over the bar.|
Then we did a little furniture shopping and spotted this on the highway:
|Was hoping for the license plate LASAGNA or ORNG CAT|
Snark aside, I have a lot of respect for passionate people.
