Junky Trinkets Does Round Top!

 Here are some of my goodies!

 Traffic baby!
 Typical shop


 Miles of this...I'm not kidding!


 I got me a "T" for Texas on last day for $15

 I so wanted this sign!

 Tons of original industrial stuff...very trendy right now

 If I only knew how to weld!





 More letters!

 More signs I love



After many years of wanting to experience the Round Top Antique shows, we finally were able to work it into our schedule this year.  Okay, let me start by saying that it was the most amazing shopping experience ever.  I have never in my life seen so many antiques, collectibles, junk, and rare obscurities.  Vendors come from all over the country and even world to this event every year. Round Top is basically where every big time designer in the country comes to find the trends for the coming years.  It is a very inspiring place for an artist like myself.  We hit up Warrenton, Texas for an all day junking spree from 9-5:30 on day one.  On day two we hit up Round Top, Carmine, and La Bahia from 9-3.  Then we went back to Warrenton from 4:30-6:30.  Here are a few of the many highlights: I picked up some cool old gas station numbers $30 each, smaller gas station numbers - $5 each, 5- $1 70's Texas license plates, 1940's mounted antlers $10, $1 Pearl, Lone Star, and Shiner cans.  We also got an old street sign for $2, a sweet vintage pearl snap shirt for $5 to add to my collection of about 50.  These are just a few things we picked up. If you live in Texas I strongly suggest that you put this on your list of things to do before you die.  You will be blown away.  I'm posting tons of pictures today so y'all can get a sense of what you are dealing with in Round Top.

  1. It's cruel to taunt us with all this fabulousness and then tell us it only comes twice a year!

  5. I have several posts on Round Top. Glad you finally found it, isn't it just a gem! You stopped at some of my favorites, clutter and Excess are the best. Excess is where I got my metal red chair. Zapp Hall is a wonderful area too. Heck, they all are. I bought something every place we stopped. Do you know you comment replies are set to no comment replies? Easy to fix under your profile. Lori
