This is one of the houses on Blackstone Ridge - such a gorgeous, primitive style setting. No snow predicted for this week - just cooler, fall like weather that will be enjoyable for Christmas shopping.
The 4-H is providing concession stands - yummy homemade dessert, beans and cornbread, BBQ sandwiches and such. We will be open late on Saturday night, so everyone can see all the Christmas lights and shop late. Also, door prizes will be given away, including a leaf blower and a basket of items from all the booths.
The market is located in a rural setting, west of Gilmer, Texas on FM 49, between the Hopewell and Little Mound Churches. Here's the direction from Carla:
Directions to marketplace on Nov.19th and 20th: Use GPS for 9553 FM 49 or from Upshur County Courthouse in Gilmer, Texas 75644, go west on 154 for a mile, turn left on FM 49 (at traffic light), go about five and a half miles on FM 49, (NEXT TURN IS THE ONE YOU HAVE TO WATCH FOR, THERE WILL BE A MARKETPLACE SIGN AT THIS TURN) take sharp right with FM 49, towards Little Mound. After this right, go almost three miles, the Blackstone Ridge Homestead is on the left. You can turn in either of the two drives.
