Sunday morning Mike surprised me by waking up and asking if I wanted to hit up Round Top. I had all but forgotten about it this fall and thought we had already missed the main dates, but as luck would have it, it was open and the best show dates were still to come. You can check out the show calendar here.
If you haven't heard of it, Round Top is THE best antiques show E.V.E.R. Period. It happens twice a year in the Spring and Fall and takes place out in the middle of nowhere. We're talking spread out for several miles in farm pastures, on the sides of the road, in barns, and of course in the beautiful town of Round Top, TX (population 90).
So you had better believe I took him up on the offer! We packed the kids up and headed out. Luckily for us we're only about an hour away.
I didn't grab photos that tell the full story of all that there is to offer, but I did snap some iPhone pics here and there of things that I liked and wanted to remember. I figure what the heck, you guys might still like to see them.
My most favorite place to hit up is Blue Hills. Everything is gorgeous here. And it doesn't hurt that they have really nice restrooms ;)
This booth had GORGEOUS pieces that are difficult to tell in the photo but are huge. A lot were brought over seas and stripped of all varnish and stain and then bleached to show off it's natural beauty. Very Restoration Hardware like, but the real deal.
They always have beautiful chandeliers at this booth.
I want a wall of bookcases just like these in our office.
Cool decoupaged bamboo pieces.
My next favorite place to hit up is EXCESS although I didn't get many photos here. Mike took off with the stroller... and my phone.
Cool sconce shades.
I saw this ship and it reminded me of the one Cassie has in her dining room.
Pretty cool stuff. Pretty darn cool stuff. I wanted everything I saw.
While we were at Blur Hills Mike saw some pendants he wanted for his office so we picked up 3 in hopes of turning them into a cool fixture.
See how cool they look next to the awesome bookcases I want?!?!
So anywho, that's what we were up to this weekend!
If you're in the area, or heck even if you aren't, make sure you check out Round Top sometime. SO MUCH FUN!!!
Did any of you guys hit up it already or are you waiting until this weekend?
