Antiquing in Round Top
The Round Top Antiques Fair is one of my favorite places to be inspired and source for unique items to bring home. It takes place twice a year— once in the spring and once in the fall, and this year I was lucky enough to attend both shows. Whether you’re on the hunt for vintage artifacts or French antiques, you’ll be sure to to find a treasure or two. Here are a few of my favorite stops as well as some tips when attending the fair.
Rows and rows of pretty white tents with carefully selected, curated items— I have to admit, The Arbors might very well be my favorite.
Must See: Heja Home- Heather and Jason are simply the sweetest and carry some of the most beautiful textiles, all sourced from Morocco.
Specializing in both modern and vintage furniture, Box Road is not to be missed. It’s comprised of three different roadside buildings that are filled with the coolest collection of goods.
The Compound consists of 5 barns, all boasting their own unique character. They have a range of vendors with impeccable wares, from European to American. It’s also a great spot to grab a quick snack and enjoy some live music.
Must See: Eneby Home- Located in The Carriage House, this place is always a must for killer modern and mid-century pieces.
Marburger is an experience! You’ll definitely suffer from visual overload and it’s completely worth it.
Must See: City Farmhouse- I was lucky enough to meet Kim and David a couple years back at their shop in Franklin, Tennessee and always make it a priority to check out their booth.
*Note: There’s an entrance fee to get into Marburger, so bring cash and expect to pay before you park.
Looking for a break and a bite to eat? Head over to Lulu’s for some delicious Italian fare.
It can be overwhelming to see miles and miles of tents, filled with an abundance of gems— so it’s best to come prepared.
-Make a list. It can be easy to get distracted, so make a list of items you’re in the market for.
-Bring cash. Be sure to have some on hand as some vendors and shops don’t take cards.
-Dress for comfort and bring water. A hands-free bag, comfortable shoes and sunscreen are a must, as you’ll be doing a lot of walking especially in the sun.
Happy treasure hunting!
