Donna the Linen lady is still set up in the Civic Center just outside the ladies restroom. You can view her blog Here

Lilly of the Junk Palace. Both of these ladies also sell at Winnie & Tulula's in Athens Texas
Doorknob Bob has been selling at the same place for years. He's in the field near the "kabob" restaurant, just outside the civic center.
Gary Fleet, who is noted in the article as "by the creek near the bridge" is still there and has great junk, with well marked and fair prices.

As stated in the article, I like to use the Blue Roof of the Civic Center as my point of reference as I shop.
The field is empty in this picture but on First Monday weekend, it surely is not.

Basic instructions for making the Breakfast Burritos
that were mentioned in the article
Fry up some Jimmy Dean Sausage (or sausage of your choice)
Scramble Some Eggs
Warm up some lg Flour Tortillas
After the eggs and sausage have cooked, combine them in a pan and then scoop them into the tortillas. Roll up tortillas, and store them in foil until ready to eat.
To spice it up you can add picante sauce, cheese, onions, etc. before you roll up your tortilla.
