Industrial Country Market aka Quirky Country Market (Off the grid!) in Columbus, Texas

Remember folks…you heard it here first 🙂 … Today’s epic adventure took me to the Quirky Country Market.  The business was initially named Industrial Country Market but too many people didn’t realize it was opened to the public, due to the word industrial, so they are changing over to Quirky Country Market.  This place is ONLY opened on the weekends and is “off the grid”…there are a ton of solar panels to accomplish going off the grid –  Love that!!!

I had no idea there was a Farmer’s Market near me until I received an email from Ms. Leah Stapleton of the SPR Agency telling me about it.  Why not check it out 🙂 .  I try not to shop/buy while getting posts ready, but I confess to leaving with 2 buckets of yummy tomatoes from Atkinson Farms 🙂 – yum!

German Gift House in Spring, Texas – How One Woman Accomplished Her Dreams!

Allow me to introduce Mrs. Ursula Sledge.  Mrs. Sledge is from Hannover, Germany. She fell in love and moved here with her American husband.  Her story is interesting as she managed to make her dreams a reality and I love that!!  Ursula was once a customer at the German Gift House and fell in love with it.  When Mrs. Sledge learned the owners wished to retire and sell the shop she enjoyed visiting so much, she and a friend decided to buy it! That was in 2008.  By 2011,  Mrs. Sledge became the sole proprietor!  What a great story of turning your passions and dreams into reality – living “The American Dream”!   (READ FURTHER FOR 10% DISCOUNT)
