Round Top Texas, Marburger Farm
We started our trip from Waco, Texas to Round Top not knowing what to expect..about 15-20 miles out of town we started seeing the dealer's tents on the side of the road….antiques, primitives, metal, fixer-uppers….you name it-it is there….One of the largest Antique Shows in the area with 350 plus dealers is the marvel called Marburger Farm in the town of Round Top. This is a 43 acre farm transformed into complete heaven….vendors you will recognize from blogs, photos or word of mouth are everywhere you look…there are several tents, buildings, and farm house type structures – each filled with vendors and their goods from ceiling to floor…It is a great way to spend a day or two…take a look……
As a pre-registered blogger I had a swag bag waiting for me filled with goodies and a VIB Pass (very important blogger) and free admission…..
At one point a woman seeing my amazement asked me—Honey-is this your first time? It must have been soo obvious!
Areas like these are one after another…the presentation some of the vendors display make you feel like you are in their store…..very creative spaces!!
Dress comfy, wear great walking shoes and be prepared to be amazed..the people are the best, the food can’t be beat and the wide variety of items you will see is well worth the trip……and when you are finished turn right on the main road and head to Warrenton and be prepared to be amazed again!! …….that’s tomorrow!!
