It’s almost here, It’s almost here. I start to get a little giddy when I imagine heading under my favorite little bridge. The sleepy road that gently winds through the trees and leads me to a treasure hunter’s paradise. Straight to acres and fields and tents and roadways and miles of glorious stuff just waiting for me. You guys know I hunt alot. At a variety of spots none the less. But cruise through my home and ask me where I got it and chances are the answer is Round Top Antique’s Week. There are some pictures and projects from my Spring trip here and here.
It’s like Christmas morning for grown ups.
You have to put it on your bucket list.
Today I am showing you some adventure shots and a few of my favorite treasures I have collected over the years while shopping Warrenton/Round Top.
I hope they inspire you to head out and hunt for something new. You can also check out 10 tips to shopping Antique’s Week in case you are a first timer. Let me know if you have additional hunting tips!!!
A few weeks ago I took the kids to Round Top in the “off season”. After all these years I have never been when it wasn’t Antique’s Week. I wanted to see what all those fields looked like empty. What buildings and fixtures were actually there all the time? What businesses were open year round?
We had a fun play day together, just exploring the country.
We started off in Burton at Flown the Coop. You MUST add this town and shop to your list when you head to Round Top this year. My favorite route runs straight though it.
We had lunch on the Round Top town square at Royer’s. It was yummy.
Next we headed over to see the Junk Gypsies. We loved their store, especially my daughter. The kids had a hoot with the Palm Reader game…each one played and got labeled 100% accurate! Crazy!??

Can’t visit without a pic by Large Marge.
My favorite stop was the Round Top Library. The library is housed in a renovated church that was moved from a farmer’s field. It is stunning.
It’s the kind of place that makes me want to load up and move to this quiet little town. It’s a must see.
The kids played in the park/playground just outside the library.
We hit a few other stores as well along the way.
I am most excited about the before pictures I took. I will head back in a few short weeks to gather the after pictures…and hopefully some other finds that make my heart go boom.
