I finally made it ~ I went to the first Saturday of the Texas Antique Weekend
Spring 2014. The Mecca, the holy grail of antique shows. I was in my element.
I had my boots, my camera and a wallet full of green backs. I was ready to
attack the tents!
Cute, cute chair don't you think? Where would I put it? No idea, so I will
keep walking around.
This bed caught my eye. Love the layers, textures and colors ...
I think these pillows are so cute. Pink and green and some blue. Adorable.
I have a real weakness for bark cloth too.
Love these pink flamingos.
Lovely armoire ~ whoops someone beat me to it.
Vintage linens. I have drawers full, but you never know, I might just find something
that I can't live without.
All varieties of lace trims.
Vintage metal signs.
Love this Dixie Cones tin.
Wonderful old jugs. I have quite a few from my great grandparents farm up
in Pennsylvania so I really should just keep moving past this table so I am
I have a few pieces of pewter and have often thought about starting a
collection because I am so fond of primitives.
Such a sweet vignette.
I cannot begin to tell you how completely overwhelming this event is. Miles and miles
of tents and vendors on both sides of the road between Warrenton and Round Top.
The traffic is bumper to bumper up and down the hills, yet everyone is quite calm and
not pushy at all. But I must say that even this antique, junk loving gal has her limits.
And when I saw this sign ...
I had a good laugh and knew it was time to call it a day!
I did buy a couple of things that will work out just great in Mom's old
bedroom that I am in the midst of redecorating. You will be seeing them later
this week. And there were a couple of things I regret not buying, but I was too
tired to walk back and get them. Believe me, there is no driving between vendors.
So maybe I will venture out here again next Saturday.
So that's it for the mini tour of Texas Antique Week. Time to get a cold drink and jump
back into the bumper to bumper traffic and head home.
Oh, oh ... what's this???
The Junk Gypsies. Could be trouble for Miss Susan.
Big Texas Hugs,
