This past week my girls were on spring break which so coincidentally coincided with the antique week in Round Top, Texas. I was super excited when I discovered this. I had come across the Marburger Farm Antique Show event page on Facebook and knew I wanted to go there because of all the vendors in one spot. I also saw this is the one where they showed Joanna Gaines on one of the Fixer Upper shows shopping with her family. I knew I was drawn to it for some reason hahaha. It was my first time to Round Top and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. We drove through lovely Texas farm country and finally came to the turn where there was a really long road full of all kinds of pull offs for antique shopping. We drove by many and I saw the Junk Gypsy shop (also hgtv people) which I would like to visit next time I go. We finally made it to Marburger Farm and had a great time looking, searching, and buying some treasures. Here are some pictures of some of the goodies I saw. There was so much I really couldn’t take it all in!
I loved how many of the booths were displayed so beautifully. Most things were out of my price range, but I did find this one booth all the way in the back where my girls and I bought quite a few things. She was from Pennsylvania and was selling everything at Dealer Price all day since it was a rainy day and the crowds were slow. Her booth was booming though! Most of what we bought were on the smaller side but the cool thing about Marburger is that if you traveled there they have on site shipping if you bought something you couldn’t fit in your car. They had lots of food vendors too. The farm has lots of old buildings on it. I really loved this one that was covered in tin from wall to ceilings!
We went on a Wednesday and there was a crowd but I didn’t feel overwhelmed at all. I don’t know if the sprinkling rain kept some people away though. We had no problem getting it, but the 2 lane road did get backed up some when we started to leave. They also had people running golf carts who would give you a lift if needed (no fee, just a tip cup to donate in) which was great since I had two littles with me. They took us all the way to the other side so we could start from there, then at the end they took us to our car. I am happy for the experience and hope to go again in the fall. And since we were close to the heart of Texas we had to go visit Magnolia Market! I will share about that tomorrow. -jess
