Round Top Recap Fall 2017

I have been thinking about my time in Texas visiting Antique Week in Round Top, Texas. My sister, Laura, drove in from Florida to visit with me and attend the Vintage Round Top’s Branding Workshop. The workshop was so great, with so much information and so many great people. Paige and Smoot Hull, the owners of the Vintage Round Top, hosted another inspiring day. This is the second workshop of their’s that I have been to and I have learned so much from both events. The flat lay at the top is a picture of all of the swag bag goodies we got to take home with us! The spring workshop is already on the calendar. You can read more from their blog with the spring dates listed too right here.

Getting photography and branding feedback from Ashleigh Amoroso and Kadie Smith was such a valuable time for everyone.

During the week we got to do some shopping, Flown the Coop in Burton, The Rendezvous in Round Top, Marburger Farm, and The Designer Dream Spree at The Compound. The Rendezvous is the first show I ever set up at, I still think of the Rendezvous as my Round Top Home. Urban Habitat is an amazing vendor that is set up at the Rendezvous and they always have the most amazing things.

 

Many of you have asked to see my ‘cottage’. Unfortunately the ‘cottage’ is not really a cute building. The garage pictured is from the little town that our house is in, the tree is next to the house and the bedroom is one of the rooms in the house. It is turning into a great little property and I am so thankful for this place to stay during the show. Eventually this property will be available for rent.

After Antique Week I headed back into Houston, of course I stopped at Buccee’s. The coffee creamer options were a bit overwhelming, we can’t get these in England. My shopping cart at HEB, just a few ‘essentials’ that I needed to bring back with me. I was also able to squeeze in a lunch and a dinner with friends. The first time we moved away from Houston I didn’t go back the whole time we lived away. I am so thankful that I have been able to go back and visit friends and stay connected to our ‘hometown’.

If you have any questions about Antique Week in Round Top, Texas for the Spring you can always visit The Round Top Register.  I am hoping to be back in Texas selling my treasures at the Spring show and I can not wait!

Marburger Tent A Fall 2017

I am getting ready to fly home from Houston to our home in London. I have had an amazing time at Antique Week this year. I did not set up to sell, but I did do some shopping and a lot of talking! I didn’t realize how many people I have met over the years, but I felt like every where I went I was chatting with someone. I do love to talk, especially about some antiques! I made my way to Marburger on opening day and it was so fun and so full of people. I was too busy shopping to take any photos. I was able to go back with my camera and get a few shots. Most of the displays look different than they did on opening day, but they are still absolutely gorgeous.

Unfortunately I didn’t get very far, I was doing a little too much chatting. I did get to capture a few fantastic vendors. Are you familiar with JBS Mercantile? They are on instagram and they are awesome. Not only is their merchandise great, but their styling is inspired and they are really nice people.

Terry and Bill were my first neighbors at Round Top. They are on the end of Tent A, just across from Tent H. I adore Terry’s feminine style and Bill’s antique and vintage metal pieces are so, so fun. The styling is inspired.

Right next to my old spot is Becky, I love Becky! I loved shopping her space before I knew how awesome she was. There is always something amazing to find in her corner. Becky doesn’t have a business page of any kind, but you can find her twice a year at Marburger Farm.

The neighbor across from me last year was Birdie’s Market on Main from Marble Falls, Texas. Can you tell I love getting to know the people around me?  Old plates make me smile, but the people they have brought into my life make my heart smile.

I hate that I am just getting to post these pictures as Marburger is closed for another season. I know so many people that have talked about wanting to go to Round Top for Antique Week one day and to them I say “GO!” The show has grown, there are more antiques than ever before, there are more places to eat and more places to stay. If you have any questions about visiting Antique Week visit RoundTop.com. It will be a trip to remember for sure.

There are 6 more tents and 12 more buildings full of antique goodness at Marburger Farm. I love walking the aisles and looking at the amazing finds from around the world.  I am hoping to be there in the Spring with so many gorgeous finds. Until then I hope this little glimpse into Tent A was fun!
