I visit shows all year long, selling and shopping. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than visiting with and making purchases from my fellow vintage and antique dealer friends.
One of my all-time favorite shows is Antiques Weekend in Round Top, Texas. Round Top, in case you're unaware, is the crack cocaine of the antique's show world and happens to be going on right this very minute (September 21 - October 5, 2013!) The field that I set up in is called The Texas Rose and is located directly across from Marburger Farms at 2075 South State Highway 237, Round Top, Texas 78954. You'll find directions from Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio here.
Bottom line, I "owe" this show; I wouldn't own my own business or be an out-of-control vintage collector (AKA hoarder) without it! And the only shopping advice I have to offer is to forget portion control … it is futile! … there are just too many vintage and antique goodies to pass up!
I just drooled …hmmm … perhaps an intervention is in order …
I emailed these clips and photos to my talented son, Noah, and he put this video together for me. He even supplied the music for it! That's him on the guitar, playing one of his original tunes!!
