We are only 77 days away from Opening Day of the Spring 2014 show.
I cannot express how excited I am that we are so close to show week! Antique Week in Round Top, Texas is an event that can hardly be explained adequately but I am gonna do my best.
Having worked for Marburger Farm for many years I know that occasionally some questions come up that I would put into the FAQ category. Today I thought I’d address several of the Frequently Asked Questions and I’d love to hear if you have a question I don’t include here. So here we go:
1. Where is Marburger Farm Antique Show?
Marburger Farm is on highway 237 just 3 miles south of Round Top, Texas. Round Top is located 77 miles east of Austin and 95 miles northwest of Houston. Here is a link to more info and maps.
2. What is Antique Week?
Antique week is a gathering of multiple antique venues along a stretch of gorgeous blue bonnet lined roads. Mostly the shows line Highway 237. Here is a link to the show schedules. Marburger Farm is open April 1-5, 2014 for the Spring show.
This is a great photo from an article about Round Top and Marburger Farm in Texas Monthly. (photo links to wonderful article about Antique week)
3. What can I expect at Antique Week and Marburger Farm?
This is a GREAT Video from One Kings Lane that gives an idea of what treasures can be found.
4. Where should I stay during Antique Week?
There are many lodging options and I would encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible. Here is a great link to some lodging information.
5. How big is Marburger Farm? How long should I plan to be at Marburger?
This all depends on if you are a speed shopper or prefer to mosy down the isles. We have 43 acres with 10 huge tents and 12 historic buildings loaded with antiques and knowledgable dealers. Here’s a great photo looking down ONE of the tent isles. I’d plan at least one full day. Here is a link to the Spring show hours.
6. Can I bring wagons, strollers or a cart?
YES! We also have shuttles that run all day and can get you and your purchases back to your car. There are also porters available for larger, heavier items who can help you load anything (fireplace mantle, anyone??!) into your car or truck or uhaul (my preference).
7. Do you rent golf carts?
Glad you asked! YES! We rent golf carts by the day or half day. You can use the golf cart to get around the property just remember they can’t be used INSIDE the buildings or tents and are for Marburger Farm property only. For how to reserve your cart now click here.
8. A question near and dear to my heart: What are the food options?
We have several food vendors and dining options with a cafe for sitting, meeting up with friends, and eating some of the great food! Here’s a link to more details about menu options.
I hope I addressed several of the questions you may have had but if I missed something, comment below and I will answer them!!
WAHOOOO! See you all soon!
