Quick Round Top Trip!

Monday, September 28, 2009 | Category: Antiques and Collectibles, Sales


On my way back from a weekend in Austin, I stopped by the BIG antiques fair in Round Top, Texas and the surrounding towns.  I call it “Round Top,” but I end up spending most of my time in Warrenton.  “Excess” is one of my favorite locations, and there are certainly some great deals to be had.  The above space is one of my favorites, and I came home with a few things from there.  The proprietor is not one for customer service…grrr…but his goods are really unique and “on trend.”


Lots of tortoise shells!


I loved this HUGE fixture pulled from a Palm Beach hotel – it was made entirely of lucite.  Trashy or Classy??  Me loves!

So that’s my quick recap, I was only there for a few hours.  The show is still going strong so check it out if you can!

ok – now I want to jump on a plane and go! I can’t but I am curious – is there a vendor there that helps people ship stuff back home if they didn’t drive?

Great finds! I really hope to be able to make it on Friday or Saturday!

There is nothing better then a successful trip to an antique fair.

So close but yet so far. I can’t believe I live in South Texas and have never been. Maybe I can change that this week.

Most dealers are more than happy to help with setting you up shipping back to your home.

You MUST go if you live in South Texas – we are so lucky to be so close!

I’m cracking up about your favorite booth. My friends and I just refer to him as “Grumpy”. Although I must say, he seemed to be on his best behavior when I was there. Of course, it was one of the first days…

My mother-in-law said he was pretty nice the first day too! Not to me though, ha ha!

Loving those tortoise shells- I would love to put one on the wall- although I did help a turtle cross the street the other day and would feel kind of bad. I vote fab on the chandelier!
