I'd like to get a live swap going here in Austin -- I *think* there are people here in the area, though I can't remember for sure. Anyone interested?

Bummer rothko! I could have sworn more people lived in your area! Maybe they just haven't made it over (to the site) yet?

You are welcome to join us at our meet-ups if you're ever in the metroplex (or if you just feel like taking a really, really, long drive... ;)).

i think most of the texans here are much closer to DFW than austin/central texas. i don't remember very many people from my area on the old site either.

thanks for the invite, but i haaaaaate that four-hour drive. :twitcy:

Hey Rothko, I just found this today. I live in New Braunfels which isnt too far. It seems like there was more central TXans on this site. It would be nice to find more and get a group together.

Just saw this thread. I'm in Austin, but tend to get lost whenever I try to drive too far from my central austin neighborhood. No sense of direction! I work the first Saturday of each month at Assistance League Thrift House, but should be free most other Saturdays. BTW, our thrift house is having a vintage/collectible sale starting April 9. If you're in the vicinity of Burnet and 49th(?) Street, check it out! We're across the street from The Omeletry.

Hey guys, we are planning a big meet-up in June 1st in the dfw area since Adriayna is coming down for a visit. I know it's a drive but it would be great if you could make it! It would be so awesome to have a huge group of us to be able to meet up!! If you are interested keep an eye on the dfw group. We will be posting details there!

Great! I might be shopping there also that day. We are allowed to purchase stuff once it is priced and out on the floor, but I like to let customers have first crack at it and, anyway, I have lots of stuff already. Wednesdays are a zoo. We are in there on Mondays and Tuesdays restocking and pricing. Sometimes Wednesday morning there is a line waiting to get in. Thursday is much tamer!

Have any of you guys got to meet up yet ? I have been so out of touch lately due to my mom being sick and in the hospital. She lives with us and I'm her caretaker plus I have a litter of pug pups that are keeping me busy. Finally had time to make a few cards recently. I've really missed it.
Do you have any meets planned ?

Rothko, I'm going to be in the Austin area in a week and a half for a WAC conference. I'd love to meet you for a few hours or coffee or whatever--and anyone else!

Let me know :)
