Shopping is not just about the end result; there is the process, too.
You get a certain kind of adrenaline rush if you're a true shop-a-holic.
There are certain signs to tell if you are a hard-core shopper.
Here are some indicators: Can you spend the whole day without eating? Do you make multiple trips to the car? Can you stand for six hours straight without feeling tired?
If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, you are indeed a shopping fanatic.
Well Crossroads, you are in luck because area market days provide more than great deals - you get an experience, and you can choose Victoria, Hallettsville or Goliad.
"It brings a lot of people in the community together," said Bil Montague, chairman of Goliad Market Days.
He said within the last few years, the market days have expanded to a year-round activity.
Montague said last month, 240 vendors from Austin and the Valley were in Goliad.
A variety of vendors offer goods like food, clothing and jewelry.
He said vendors and shoppers also get to see historic Goliad.
