I wrote this Round Top Recap way back in October, and then I forgot to post it! Then I forgot to post anything for another 4 months. Ooops! I have been posting regularly over on Instagram @BrocanteTreasures.
I think that I have finally recovered from the adventure that is Antiques Week in Round Top, Texas. This Fall 2019 show was another HOT, HOT, HOT event. Spending 10 days outside in 90+ degree heat took its toll, but the fun was worth it all.
I had so much fun putting together my space at Marburger Farm Antiques Show. It is a labor of love for sure to bring all of my accumulated treasures under this tent and arrange them beautifully.
I had some special help early in set up, my husband and my daughter came out and helped me move furniture and unearth my inspiration.
After some time working hard we did make a stop by the Junk Gypsy Headquarters. Addie found herself a vintage suede jacket that is nothing short of amazing. The truly spectacular part will be when Texas cools off enough for her to enjoy wearing it.
One day during set up, my sister and I made our way to The Vintage Round Top for another installment of their Business, Branding and Social Media Workshop. I have attended 4 of these workshops, and I said I wasn’t going back this year, but the speakers fo the workshop were so good and I love Paige and Smoot. My friend Becki Griffin, did a great job talking about photography and styling, Julia Drake spoke about her PR firm in New York, and the fascinating work they do. Rachel Barrett spoke about her job being in the editor in chief at Country Living. The woman right here, Annie Sloan, of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint was amazing. I traditionally have not enjoyed painting furniture, but Annie made me feel like I could transform anything with her paint.
Rachel Barrett came by to say hi at the show.
The real star of the show for me was my sister, Laura. Any time you see me at Antiques Week and I have fun full head of beautifully braided hair it is all thanks to Laura. Hair is Laura’s full time gig, I love that she comes out to Texas to help me and she works her magic on my hair while she is here.
There were so many beautiful treasures, some of them found new homes, others are still waiting for the right place. I so enjoyed being around all my beautiful things and getting to share their stories with my customers and friends.
I was so pleased to get a visit from Jeanne Oliver. I have been so inspired by Jeanne and it meant so much to have her make a visit to my corner while she explored Round Top.
It was a magical time of creativity and connection with fellow treasure hunters.
Until the Spring!
Just a month until the spring show. I will be back at Marburger Farm in Tent A March 31-April 4. Check back for a preview.
