Vacation 2010 - Deep In The Heart of Texas (Day 2)

Neither of us had ever been in downtown Fort Worth so on Saturday morning we walked around for a while and took some pictures. We both loved it - so many unique buildings and lots of activity.  

We left downtown to travel a few miles east to Handley for the Handley Street Festival car show. There were some really nice classic cars, an arts festival and an antique mall. Bob found a print that included a 1939 Chevy in major disrepair (kind of like his looked when he first got it), and I got a small print of downtown Waxahatchie. I've not been there but I hope to go someday, and I just liked the colors. I also found a cross made from old cutlery.

Street Festival Finds
From Handley we headed south toward Austin, with a stop at the Style Station. This is a weird and funky place. They have a fairly good selection of vintage clothes with an emphasis on western wear, but they do have things from the 60s-80s and some jewelry, hats, etc.  I'd recommend a stop if you like vintage clothes and have a little time to chat. One of the owners is quite the talker and very opinionated.  His wife prints Style Station t-shirts - they're fun and only $10 to $12.

And of course we made a couple of junquing stops between Fort Worth and Austin.
