In March…Round Top & Texas

March and April are busy months for the folks in Texas and the thousands that are drawn to the state each year to participate in or attend Round Top and the many other shows, auctions, and antiquing events that are taking place this time of year in the Great State of Texas.
Antiques Week/Round Top
March 20 – April 5
Touted as the largest antiques fair in the United States, ‘Round Top,’ which has been around since 1967, attracts more than 2,000 vendors who descend upon a 25-mile stretch of Highway 237 from Burton to LaGrange (with Round Top somewhere in the middle) for roughly two weeks every fall and spring.   From dance halls to football field-size tents and wide open fields, the shows are as varied as the locations and dealers exhibiting. Enjoy the experience and shop exhibitors from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe for items as varied as old tools, architectural pieces, furniture, collectibles, artwork, fine china, jewelry, silver, and more.
