Marburger Farm Community

You know when you spend 11 days working together a sense of community develops.

At Marburger, the community is strong. We have almost a familial bond develop over those long, hard 11 days and we love it.

The bonds between dealers,

staff workers,

and shoppers is something that is hard to explain but can be easily experienced inside those 43 acres.

And we love nothing more than to welcome folks to Texas to be a part of our incredible community.

In the end it is worth every bit of blood, sweat and tears to get to be together with this great community and shop for great antiques!!

And guess what? We get to do it all over again.  In just 159 days.

 

See you there,

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.

New temperatures, gardens blooming, baby bunnies (yes, baby bunnies) I may be a little in love with spring right now……

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!”

SHOW WEEK IS ALMOST HERE!!

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.
