Industrial Art Market

On our way to the  big Warrenton/Round Top market we found a REALLY Cool New Place called the Industrial Market.  They run there shop...OFF THE GRID and have a handful of Solar Panels to keep them that way.  It's a General Store, Herb Farm,  Water Garden,  Art Gallery, Zen Garden and more, all rolled into one beautiful place.  Check it out....Industrial Country Market
We loved this place from the Git-Go.  We got there 30 minutes before they opened, but they opened the fence and let us come on in.  The first thing we could see is how PROUD they were to to Texans!  Don't you LOVE the way they displayed their metal art....On Bed Springs!

What a great, artistic way to re-cycle old garden hoses.  If you look closely you will see the hose at the top is shooting out water to make this one, cool garden fountain.
You know me and my love for old bikes......it's a great way to divide up spaces, right?
The water garden was beautiful with iris and water lilies!

Behind the Water Garden was a Art Garden.  The artist had taken all sorts of recycled items (bottles, vases, marbles, dishes, even toilets and created and walk through garden.


An interesting wall made with bricks and bottles!
As you can see this cool market is out in the boonies...but beautiful boonies...nonetheless!
We liked these bowling balls....they reminded us of something from outer space.
And here are the toilets....SEE...I Wasn't Teasing!??!?!
Usual art with chains, tubes and plastic!
Another view from the water garden.........

These folks were growing some very healthy looking herbs and plants.  This is their greenhouse with an elaborate, but organic watering system.  AND there were free samples of herbs, if you asked for them
A pretty arbor decorated with colorful bottles.....leading to the rose garden!
A bucket full of bluebonnets.......Texas's State Flower!
Succulents growing in an old, recycled tin ceiling tile.....
I've seen Bottle Tree's but never a Bowling Ball Tree before.

My shopping partners for the day.....we had a blast!  Check out my blog in a few more days and I'll blog about the goodies we found up the road in Warrenton!
