The rest of the Warrenton/Round Top story

17 Apr

Legs! One of the most photographed spots in Warrenton...right outside of Cole's. These body parts belong to Meloney and Brian of Seed Box Antiques.


When staying at my Deluxe Accommodations in Brenham, I always stop at this small show on my way back to the fields. I don't know what it's called, but it's close to Burton. This year I bought some galvanized stuff from them.


In Round Top...


In Round Top, next to Royer's!!


I've SEEN this photo everywhere, too... Warrenton...


Junk Gypsy tent...


Pardon the blur, but see if you can spot what's wrong in this picture (besides the blur). Taken at the Fayetteville show, where dealers are open late every night.


On the road, literally, leaving the little cabin in the woods, outside of LaGrange. I found it a bit unsettling the way the look you straight in the eye!!


Sweet Talk/Rubbish, Janet's brain child! At Marburger Farm. When you visit her booth, make sure you ask her to find a very specific word. She has THOUSANDS of flashcards. Also suggest that she lower her prices. She'll be your new best friend.


More Rubbish...


More Rubbish...Not only is Janet the flashcard queen, she also has cornered the butter pat market.


More Rubbish...


Rubbish again...


Willow Nest at Marburger Farm


The low-color beauty of Willow Nest once again...


Willow Nest again. Linda spent some time in France recently and brought back all kinds of treasures...


Willow Nest...


Willow Nest


Willow Nest...I love these fountains.


Willow Nest...Yes! It's for sale!!


Quite possibly my favorite thing: Conveyor belt. At Marburger in Fluff's space...If you haven't met Stephanie, you need to!


French Fluff...I did bring a few of these home with me.


Fluff...Beautiful bed!


Fluff...I adore this lamp...




More Round Top scenery...


Snapped this while stopped in traffic on the highway!


Janet of Sweet Talk/Rubbish had these gloves on the wall outside MFHLR (that's the OFFICIAL name of her location)...


Part of my haul...


Mom's meatloaf from Happy Belly: I like to bookend my trip with Happy Belly...a perfect way to start a junking adventure, and a sweet ending to a great week, too.

The goods. The scenery.

When you mix it all together with the food and the people and the events, you get the entire Antiques Week picture.

It’s all happening. Twice a year. In sprawling Texas cow pastures. See you there in the fall?

    It appears you had a successful journey as well as an enjoyable one. That meatloaf sandwich makes me hungry.

      Thanks for visiting and for your comment. It was a great show. And that meatloaf sandwich is the bomb!

    Where is Happy Belly? That looks Devine. Speaking of good eats, you familiar with Cactus in Burton?

    • junkology June 4, 2012 at 6:46 pm #

      Happy Belly is at the Texas Rose show (across the highway from Marburger Farm) during antiques week. I can’t begin to tell you how fabulous the food is and how wonderful the people are! I am not familiar with the Cactus in Burton! I must try it!! Thanks for stopping by! xo
