Round Top Antiques Fair is known as the show that started it all. It first set up its stands in the city of Round Top in 1970 and has been going strong ever since. In fact, it seemed to inspire a love of antiquing and collecting throughout the area and is one of the hot spots to visit during the Texas Antique Weekend. The long-standing history of this fair was earned through its consistent reputation for unsurpassed quality, and unusual, one-of-a-kind antiques. By many that regularly patronize this fair, it is considered one of the best in the USA.
Round Top Antiques Fair takes place just three times throughout the year. There is a show in spring, fall, and finally in the winter. Indoor and outdoor spaces mean that weather is never an issue at this fair. The shows usually span a week, though just 6 days are open to the general public. The first day of the show is offered out to VIPs, so if you fancy getting first dibs at the incredible antiques at this fair, it is worth getting online and bagging some of those VIP tickets in good time.
The amazing array of vendors and dealers at the Round Top Antiques Fair is staggering. There are approximately 2,500 booths set up over a 15-mile radius in over 60 venues and shows. The heart of the activity of the Round Top Antiques Fair is centered around the Big Red Barn. Throughout this 30,000 square foot structure and the nearby Big Red Barn Tent, visitors will find an irresistible array of beautifully displayed antiques.
Expect to find very early Americana, Texas primitive, Continental furniture, and plenty of accessories. The Continental Tent was a new addition to this antique fair in 2008. This space offers high-quality items from the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and other European countries − from country to formal, from small to large. This whole location should be the starting place for lovers of American and European furniture, and much more!
There is no excuse not to shop to your heart’s content at the Round Top Antiques Fair. Porters are on hand to carry items to the car, shippers are on-site to handle large items, and there is plenty of free parking.
