Spring is Here

The Spring show was an incredible time and one of my favorite things was seeing all the Easter displays.

Spring just communicates freshness and a new day coming.

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
“At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!”

texassign

We have only 5 days until we ring that opening day bell.

Our parking lot opens at 8 am on April 1st so that people can park and get onto the field to shop (insider tip!!) and our shopping begins at 10 am.  That means folks are gathered around ready to shop when we ring that bell and it is an absolute delight.

We love seeing the shoppers dash off to find their treasures and spend the day hunting, laughing, learning and making memories.

20 Reasons To Do Antique Week in Round Top, Texas

If you asked me I could probably make a list a mile long with reasons I love Antique Week but I thought perhaps I should narrow it down and let you in on my top 20 reasons you have to give it a go.

roundtopsignBEST

Antique week is held in Round Top, Texas twice a year. And get ready because your opportunity to see it in the Spring is just around the corner.

Top 20 reasons you should visit Round Top, Texas during Antique Week

1.  Round Top, Texas is a tiny town, population NINETY, but during Antique Week, there are tens of thousands that descend on this quaint town. This alone is worth seeing.
2. Someone taking a picture of you shopping could land you smack in the center of an issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine.
3. Drinking iced tea on the porch of a 100 year old Bingo Hall.
4. World class artists at Marburger. “What? oh, you don’t say? You sell for Anthropology and are on the cover of Uncommon Goods?? I didn’t know that….no, I didn’t stalk your art like a crazy person and come running to see you…
5. Shopping for rare, incredible antiques with longhorns standing in fields of bluebonnets as your backdrop.
6. This is the ONLY place and time in my life I can hail a guy on a golf cart and he jump at the chance to haul my items all over tarnation and deposit me at the end of the day at my car.
7. Marburitas at the Blacksmith Bar after a long day of shopping.
8. Sheriffs on horse back keeping order. Everytime I see them I have to suppress the desire to yell, “Keep ordah, here!” in my spot-on British accent.
9. Telling your friends you’ll meet them in the Silver Dollar Saloon after you finish in the Dance Hall.
10. Bud’s Chocolate Chip Pie from Pie Haven. Ok, let’s be honest here. ANYTHING from Pie Haven.
11. The chance to accidentally (accidentally on purpose) bump into Matthew McConaughey, Tori Spelling, or Miranda Lambert at the Kettle Corn booth.
12. Junk Gypsy as seen on HGTV. Yeehaw.
13. Prom Night. Yes, there is a prom night for all ages (over 21) and costumes like a light up two person gondola and working lamps that are stunning and bizarre. My two favorite combinations.
14. People watching (see #13)
15. There are over 20 venues of antiques spread throughout Round Top, Warrenton, Giddings, Carmine, Fayettville, and Burton. (but the best is Marburger’s 43 acres packed with antiques!)
16. Road Trip with girlfriends!
17. Fried food on sticks.
18. Seeing a helicopter land in the back field to deposit shoppers at Marburger. (um, hello best way to travel, EVER.)
19. The chance to wear your cowboy boots and say “y’all” a lot.
20. We set up a treasure hunt for you with antiques from around the world. ’nuff said.

I hope to see y’all April 1-5th at Marburger Farm Antique Show!
