Have you ever wanted to do something for many years, and then finally you are there, and it’s bigger and better than you imagined? Well that was my experience last weekend when I finally attended the Roundtop Antiques Show, in Roundtop TX. I am super lucky. My sweet designer friend, Kelly, who lives and works in Texas, was my amazing tour guide. In Roundtop, a tour guide is worth its weight in gold. It’s big; TEXAS B I G!!! So knowing where to start, and where to quit was extremely valuable.
We started at the Marburger Farm series of tents and buildings chocked full of antique dealers from all over the country. They were beautifully appointed booths filled to the brim with antiques from all over the globe.
We spent about 3 hours walking from tent to tent. We hit the Uncommon Objects tent, and then went to Ex-Cess, where I found things from Marrakech and Hungary. Roundtop is something that should be on your bucket list if you’re like me and love beauty and interesting wares. I will say wear your cowboy boots as it’s dusty, drink plenty of water, and don’t over do it. Roundtop would take a few weeks to see everything, so curate your tour, and if you can, go with an expert. Thanks to Kelly for the fantastic day. I will never forget it, and I will be back. xx
One pro tip is to buy items as you see them because you most likely will not go back to buy them. I will say, I did not follow my own advice as these cleavers are something I should have picked up. But it’s a great reason to go back in the spring, right?
