The Round Top Antique Show, held every fall and spring, is just about an hour and half drive away from where I live/work (The Woodlands, Texas) , so I would be crazy NOT to go.
If you’re into interiors or are from Texas, you’re bound to have been at least once. There are tons of vendors there — low end, high end, and everything in between — and it’s world famous.
Last year I took the girls in my studio with me; but this year I went by myself. Don’t get me wrong — it’s not that I didn’t want them to come, it’s just that they have way too much to do on our projects. Plus, I’ll also be working over the weekend to make up for time lost . :-)
Most of these are rustic in nature; I prefer real old objects instead of new objects that are made to look old. There’s mostly old at Round Top, so I’m guaranteed to find some items to add to my stock.
I must say…
There are some really creative people out there at Round Top, and their displays are always interesting. So today I’m just going to share some of my finds and spottings from this enormous venue an antique fair that never fails to be full of treasures old and new.
