Round Top

My friend Susan
ready to dive into that tent of goodies!!!

Hundreds of tents like these are full to the brim with antiques along the roads of several small towns close to Round Top, Texas

The mall pictured here was so big I got lost!! It was one of many enclosed buildings....we went in that one because it was free. Some charged as much as $10.00 admission!!

Hi everyone....I am sooo tired and sore!!! We walked for 2 days solid and had such a wonderful time!! If you like antiques, Round Top is the place to go. Two weeks at the end of March and first of April in the spring and 2 weeks in October each year antique venders come from all over the country. We went to 3 little towns and they were all filled with hundreds of tents, buildings, and warehouses full of stuff!!! I went with 3 friends and we stayed at the cutest Bed and Breakfast called the Pecan Grove Inn in Carmine, Texas. They had great rooms in a turn of the century restored house and the breakfast was FABULOUS!!! If you ever want to visit Texas and love antiques, make you plans with Round Top in mind!! Be sure to wear good shoes and bring lots of money!!! I bought an Eastlake rocker that we couldn't get in Linda's SUV so we will have to go to the ladies antique shop in Austin to pick it up...oh, darn...heehee!!! Did I plan that right or what!!?!! Thanks for visiting and I will get some stamping done tomorrow!!
