from around the world will set up shop in the four small Texas towns of Carmine, Round Top,
Warrenton and La Grange for Round Top Antiques Week

Considered the largest antiques fair in the United States, this shopper's paradise, which has been around since the 1960's, is no longer one show held the last weekend of October and April each year. Round Top Antiques Week now lasts more than two weeks every spring and fall with about 40 separate shows set up in dance halls, barns, warehouses and sheds. Tents cover cow pastures and front yards. Crystal chandeliers hang from the rafters and margaritas are plentiful.

The merchandise is as varied as the venues and the dealers, featuring more than just antiques. You can find pretty much anything under the Texas sun...from period French antiques to a Brady Bunch lunch box to a signed first edition of William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury. Industrial salvage, vintage jewelry, European linens, fine art, furniture from every era and plain ole' junk can be had. You'll see designers and decorators alongside pickers and junkers. Collectors and hoarders of all kinds will descend on this 25-mile stretch of Highway 237 from Burton to La Grange.
