Last weekend I hit up Round Top for the first time with my mom and a friend. We had SUCH a great time!
The place was packed with awesomeness as far as the eye could see, and beyond.
I do think my favorite venue was Blue Hills.

I loved everything there. Not too big, not too small. It was just right. I felt like the prices there were really fair too. Oh, and they had nice restrooms. Definitely something you'll appreciate out there where porta potties are sometimes your only option... in sweltering heat. If you do find yourself in that unfortunate porta potty scenario, I recommend finding a parking spot way out in a field where no one can see you. Just saying.
Despite wanting to take home almost everything I saw while shopping around (minus the real elephant foot turned stool - for reals), I was a good girl and only brought home a few goodies.
My absolute fav find was this dough bowl I picked up from Old World Anteiks at Blue Hills. I lurve her. She smelled like yeast when I gave her a bath in the kitchen sink.
I also picked up this olive bucket at the same place. Those things were all over Round Top. Planning on using it to hold wood for our outdoor fireplace in the new house. Can't remember where the small metal containers came from nor what they were called (held starter plants), but I'm thinking they would be great with some succulents inside.
I also stopped in at the Junk Gyspies place. You're not going to find a bunch of antiques there, but it was a really cool store with some fun stuff. I've been wanting a little glass box, so when I saw this one, it came home with me. Don't know what to put in it yet.
Oh, and I picked up another rack of antlers. For $10. Bam! Didn't get a photo of those. Just felt a little weird.
Anywho, I'll definitely be hitting it up again in the Spring. Hopefully I can drag some furniture pieces back with me next time!
Personally, I wasn't thrilled with Marburger Farms. Everyone said it was a MUST see, but I just thought it was all so stinking expensive. I don't even think I'll bother stopping by them next time.
Have you guys hit up Round Top before? What do you think? What did you find?!
