I made it out to the big TX antique show this week. It was about a two hour drive each way, in the middle of nowhere. But, boy was it cool! It happens twice a year and has been going on for 45 years.
Warrenton, TX is just west of Round Top, TX and then Marburger Farms (a specific show) was in between. Each had a distinctive flavor. Warrenton was laid back, super friendly, pretty good prices and super casual. Round Top, a little less casual and the items were presented in a more “styled” way. Then, Marburger Farms was upscale. A bit of a fashion show, more expensive and very styled. I heard a rumor that Martha Stewart was there, but I didn’t see her.
I liked them all in different ways.
Here are some photos from the day. You can probably guess which ones are from which area. But, I will arrange them by genres for easy viewing. You can click on an image to see it larger.
Please forgive the not so great pictures at funky angles. I was using my phone and things were so packed in, it was tough to get a good angle.
It was such a pretty area. This house literally stopped me in my tracks. Love the crisp white house with the old aged barn. There was a pond with a little white canoe to the right. So lovely. And that tree is awesome!
UNIQUE/ DOESN’T FIT INTO OTHER CATEGORIES
I guess marbles are pretty popular. And if you were looking for old school roller skates, this is the place!
And, believe it or not, there was a set of painted chairs (the fabric was painted)! See the image below.
ACCESSORIES AND ART
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I sincerely tried to find vendor names, but so few booths had names prominently displayed. However, if you are interested in something, I can tell you an approximate location.
There were miles and miles of vendors. I maybe saw a fifth of what they had – if that.
I was sure to get this post out before it’s over. The show goes through Oct 6th. Head out there if you have time!
