I’m in the midst of Round Top overload, frantically trying to process all the stuff I saw over the past two days. And friends, I saw a lot of stuff — miles and miles of stuff, in fields, in tents, in barns… It was a pretty crazy scene (albeit as crazy as a weekend of antiquing in bucolic small town Texas with a group of girlfriends can be).
In between downing gallons of water (it was hot and dusty and hot), my incomparable Round Top cohorts Sam and Sarah and I diligently combed through that sea of stuff in an attempt to suss out some “blow your mind” finds, and we were not disappointed. In addition to the mirrored lounge chairs/giant Taj Mahal goodness to the right, we collectively drooled over (among other things) beautiful vintage Turkish rugs, massive chunks of petrified wood, an ancient crumbling mirror straight out of a French manor, and a giant marble foot à la Kelly Wearstler.
And while the above finds were sadly out of our price range, the three of us did manage to stuff the back of the car with our fair share of treasures, including a clutch of brass objects, a couple of plaster busts, some original works on paper, a giant vine ball, and a killer vintage rattan chair.
All told, a pretty respectable haul if I do say so myself.
