Antique Alley Texas

Covering over 30 miles of scenic farmland, Antique Alley Texas welcomes twice a year in Spring and Autumn, over 20,000 visitors to enjoy 500 antique exhibitors and many more yard sales

Tucked along Highway 4, known locally as Farm-to-Market Road, Antique Alley Texas draws collectors off main thoroughfares for 30-plus miles of idyllic backroad antiquing. What started in 1999 as a sidewalk sale in Grandview with 53 vendors has grown to include seven communities and two counties with hundreds of merchants. Thus, a range of antique stores, consignment shops and yard sales line the fields and downtowns along the festival route.

The vintage and antique shopping possibilities at Antique Alley Texas are endless. Anticipate plenty of vintage housewares and whatnots, books, garden statuary, wrought iron and wicker patio furniture, farming equipment and horse tack, and western apparel and décor. Plus, vendors offer special promotions during the market. For upscale items, Whipp Farm hosts a juried collection of antiques, art, and quality collectibles.

Antique Alley Texas takes place twice a year in Spring and Autumn, over a whole weekend. Open rain or shine, pretty much the only weather to call the event off is a tornado or lightning. Sunday can be a slower day since some vendors close for religious practices.

A surge of patrons to the small communities participating in the highway yard sale can limit legal parking options. Although the roadside shoulder is tempting, it is an unsafe, ticketable offense. Look for pastures or church lots that advertise festival parking. Food, however, is abundant. Count on fair favorites such as funnel cakes and corn dogs. Also indulge in down home cooking and freshly baked pies. Local Mennonite families sell homemade jams and baked goods in addition to handmade furniture.

Whether looking for eclectic odds and ends or antique furniture, Antique Alley Texas is an ideal flea market trail to wander. Based on reports, past visitors uncovered a stuffed skunk for sale. So expect the unexpected.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
