Road Trip to Round Top and Warrenton

Happy Wednesday, Friends! It's Texas Antique Week in the Round Top/Warrenton area. I went early with my friend Carly and I'll be sharing our adventures, finds and favorite stomping grounds from the trip in my next few posts. Exactly one week ago, we headed out bright and early...

Round Top/Warrenton Texas

...for our adventure. Carly had never been before and with a previous trip on opening day under my belt, I learned a few things. Most importantly, I learned where I wanted to shop and when I wanted to go. When I discovered that almost all of the vendors open at least a week prior to the official shopping week, I decided that is when I would like to go, so off we went. We made good time, arrived around lunch time and ate at Royers Cafe which is an experience in itself! As expected, it was crowded, but we were seated right away (family style) and received great service and even better food. I'll be sharing more about it and the delicious pie they serve, on Sunday.

Now we were fueled for shopping--and did we shop! It was h-o-t but we were armed with water bottles and sunscreen and we were in the zone. I took lots of photos so you could browse with us. There are a variety of tented displays and displays outside of shops like this one:

Vintage cameras galore!

I would love this old stove in my vintage kitchen.

 Isn't this copper collection fabulous?

These heavenly doors featuring French script were absolutely gorgeous.

I adore the fabric on this ottoman.

Isn't this such a sweet expression?  It reminds me of Ginger Grand.

The Texas Rose Show is located directly across from Marburger Farm. It's small, but was one of our favorites. On Thursday, we ate lunch at the Texas Rose Cafe.

The rosemary chicken salad was some of the best I've ever had!

Also at The Texas Rose, this cute vintage camper is where Pamela B Designs sells her lovely handmade jewelry. On Friday, I'll be sharing what I found here along with the rest of my finds.

A few of our other favorite venues were Blue Hills and Cole's Antiques. Drop by Friday to see all of our fabulous finds. Then on Sunday, I'll be sharing our visit to Junk Gypsy and Royers Cafe. Before I go, I'd like to send a special shout out to Carly's dad, Mr. C who was kind enough to share his hotel points with us for our room Wednesday night!

  1. Ok, next time I want to go too! It would be easy for me to meet you there. I found it to be overwhelming. I need a guide, lol.

  2. OOh, that chicken salad looks so good. Yep, I am hungry. WOW...lots of goodies to look at. Love it! I bet you had a ball. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Oh that stove too! Get it updated to be able to use it...that would be awesome!

  4. Too much fun! This place is on my bucket list for sure. But living in Chicago I'm not sure when that's gonna happen...:) I am crazy jealous!

  5. Looks like you were in your element all day, what an awesome place to shop and enjoy good food! Thanks for sharing the fun:)

  6. Looks like you and Carly had a grand time, it brought back memories of my friend Monelle and our trip to Round Top years gone I need your lavender lemonade recipe as I heard it was most delightful!

  7. Saw a few interesting items! Eager to see what you got.

  8. What fun! I love the ottoman. This gets me even more excited for Junkstock here in Nebraska next weekend!

  9. This looks like so much fun!! So many great items that I love! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Thanks for visiting!

  10. This looks like such a wonderful time...and so great to share it with a friend! Looking forward to seeing more!

  11. Fun! I wish I could shop through the screen!! ;)

  12. Love the copper and the much to see! Thanks for sharing, Pam @ Everyday Living

  13. Thanks for the mention and the beautiful photo of my vintage camper!! Come back to shop in the Spring starting March 17, 2017. (PamelaB Designs)

  14. I'm so glad you did this post Cecilia, thank you! If I ever do go (and someday I will!), I want to be sure and read sound advice like you're offering. This venue has almost gotten too big for its britches - so, so many vendors. I don't see how any novice could ever hope to make headway without someone else trailblazing. I look forward to your upcoming posts (and what you found!).

  15. Cecilia, the chicken salad sandwich looks delicious. You took pics of wonderful vintage stuff. Sylvia D.

  16. So fun Cecilia. I hope to make it there some day. I love the ottoman, and French script windows. I have an old stove like that in my garden. It's certainly not in that good of shape. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  17. Oh it looks delightful! Is this in Texas? I would love to visit any one of those places!
