Texas Antiques Week

Steer skull and old signage

This past weekend I traveled to Round Top, Texas for Texas antiques week. It was an absolute blast! I’m sharing photos I already posted on Instagram, here are some of my favorite snap shots.

Amie and Jolie from Junk Gypsy invited me to stay at their very own, Wander Inn. The inn isn’t officially open to the public just yet, the ladies are still decorating, and putting on finishing touches. All I can say is it’s just dreamy!

This is the downstairs and main hangout area in the inn. When I arrived Saturday, I was greeted by the ladies from High Cotton Home & Design, who were also in town. We stayed up until two in the morning the giggling and acting like teenagers. It was the perfect slumber party.

This is my room, can you say dreamy? The combination of gold, steer skulls, cowhide, and glitter was perfection.

Leather and Vodka handbags

The next day I hit the ground running and walked around booth after booth for seven hours. I spent most of my day in Warrenton and I only scratched the surface. Antiques week is big, there is a lot of ground to cover. Comfortable shoes and boots are a must for survival.

Storm clouds and high humidity loomed in the background all day but that didn’t deter shoppers. I got back just before the big rain hit and spent the night in the inn by myself, listening to the rain and reading the new Junk Gypsy book. I watched the cattle graze behind the inn and enjoyed being out in the country filled with serenity.

Farm Gypsies in Round Top

The next day I shopped at Junk Gypsy, wandered over to Round Top, met up with blog reader Robin, bought cute new boots from Farm Gypsies, ate delicious tacos, and headed back to the airport. If I could do it all over again (and trust me I’ll be back) – I would add more time to this trip and I would spend a day or two in Austin as well.
