The twice yearly Round Top Antiques Fair is a fabulous place to go here in central Texas if you want to do some serious antiquing and just all-around treasure hunting. Honestly, you could get lost in this shopping mecca for days, and would except for the fact that it is only open for a week! It is a popular place for design shoppers from California to New York, and touted as one of the best antique fairs in the nation.
It really doesn't matter what you are looking for, if you look long enough you will find it here. They have everything from automobile parts to frilly skirts, and everything in between. It is the perfect place to scout for your own ideas for some new home decor. I think my favorite finds at the spring show were the beautiful white chalk painted antique furniture pieces. Just so darned pretty! And if you go to the spring show you will also get the added bonus of Texas bluebonnets in full bloom in wide open fields. That alone is worth the venture into this part of central Texas for a day trip.
I have my calendar marked for the fall show, which is in early October. Hope to see you there!
