Round Top, Texas for a Second Time
Hello friends! I wanted to share with you some of the fun places we were able to visit on our second trip to Round Top, Texas during Antique Weekend. If you know me, then you know that I am not a fan of this extreme heat and humidity that happens in southern Texas. My Midwestern blood just does not want to cooperate!! Thank goodness mother nature graced us with a cold front and the sticky, wet blanket was lifted making it a perfect 70 degrees to wander about.
The first place we hit was the Junk Gypsy shop. They have such a cool vibe, and the property that they live and work on is gorgeous! I didn't take any photos inside, but go to their website and you can see for yourself!
Outside the store they had a booth set up by Great American Country. You could help yourself to a DIY project and make a leather bracelet, grab a complimentary ice cold drink and relax in their recreated living space, which Kurt happily helped himself too!!
One thing that I was noticing more on this trip were all of the vintage campers, buses, and trailers turned into mini shops. Every single one was so darn cute and quirky. The Suburban Girl Fashion Mobile Boutique was even decked out with wood floors and a dressing room!
We stopped for a little bite at Royers Round Top Cafe, and it was the BEST BBQ sandwich that I have had since we moved to Texas a year and a half ago.
Dessert was a caramel brownie pie topped with vanilla ice cream - need I say more?!!!
If I haven't already told you, this trip is definitely worth it! It's miles and miles of tents set up selling antiques, original art, hand crafted items, furniture, romantic lace clothing, cowboy boots, sweet iced tea, vintage linens, and piles and piles of plain ol' junk!!! If you are creative and open minded, this show is your oyster!!!
Oh, and those bracelets we were making at the beginning of the day... well I think they summed up the weekend pretty well. "Not all who wander are lost," ain't that the truth!
