Round Top, TX

I bet a lot of you have heard of this place. Round Top Texas. Home to the biggest and bestest antique show anywhere. Tiny Round Top has a population of 77 folks. Except twice a year when over 1,000 (yes, one thousand!) dealers arrive to sell their wares to over 200,000 shoppers!!! Now all of this activity isn't just in Round Top. The show stretches over miles and miles with football size tents set up in fields between the towns of Warrenton, Marburger and everything along the way.

Texas always does it big and they have a good time doing it. Yep, this is a dream trip for and a U-Haul! Click on any of the pictures to enlarge Enjoy!!!!!

See what I mean? Maybe Heaven really is in Texas!!!

Yep, grew up in Texas and know the place. It was fun seeing the pix. Cool antiques, too---my fave are the metal lawn chairs. I have memories of sitting in my grandmothers red one and "bouncing" while drinking a small, cold bottled Coca Cola--that first sip would bring tears to one's eyes. Good memories.

Hi Cheri, I came across your blog from Vintage Bliss, which I posted about this past week since the store is closing. In your pictures of Round Top, my booth was the one with all the frames and collars hanging off the branch. I was at Zapp Hall. Hope you had a good time at the shows. If you come back in the Fall, please stop in and introduce yourself. Have a great Friday, Theresa-Garden Antqs Vintage
