Round Top, TX is a tiny little town with the population of 77 most of the year. But in the spring and fall it explodes with thousands of people, both selling and buying antique and vintage items of all eras.
Even with all these people, it's very safe. But I'm glad that they have mounted police to keep an eye on things. After seeing the traffic, I can appreciate why they need horses to get around quickly. I thought it was very cool! (I had to include this picture because I love horses!)

There are ALL kinds of great finds and vintage treasures. I took a ton of pictures, but thought I'd keep it down to just a few to give you an idea.

Of course, I couldn't resist looking at linens. They were all over the place. Though I have to admit that often times they were very pricey and not in the best condition. (However, I did manage to find a few good things to bring back. Yeah!!!)

These are all pillowcases. This lady had TONS of them and other linens. But they were a little high and she wasn't willing to deal. Oh well...It was fun looking!

Are these pillows gorgeous or what! They were big, heavy, goose down pillows that made you just want to jump into them. I think they were about $48.00 each which, although they didn't fit into my budge, I didn't think they were that expensive for what they are.

More pillow strewn all over the bed. So soft, cozy and luxurious! Wish I could get them all. Or even just one!

I loved this display of different vintage pillowcases shown on one bed. The colors didn't necessarily match, but they worked together great anyway.

These are the same pillowcases. It looked nicer in person because the cushions turned out too dark in the picture. Check out the headboard hanging above the headboard. Love it! I even like the way they look together.

I highly recommend you go to this show if you ever get a chance. It's a party just walking around and looking at everything. There is just so much. I tried taking pictures to show it's vastness, but none did it justice. You can click HERE to go to the site for the show in the fall. Their pictures are WAY better than mine.

I love all this stuff but I have a cal. king bed. That means all these pretty pillow cases that I fall in love with wont fit my pillows. Now I found a way to use them. I put a reg. king case on first then pull the pretty standard ones over it. The pillow is completely covered and I get to enjoy the embroidery plus the king case sticks out farther so it looks like a border beyond the other case. Just one more Idea for you :) (plus I left a msg for you on the chicken blog that you asked on)

Y'know Patricia, I've been to the U.S.A. three times, but it was more than 30 years ago, and I had no interest in antiques or linens back then. If only I could have seen into my future, I would have sussed out all these antique fairs you guys have over there, and started my linen collection 30 years earlier!

Hi, thanks so much for stopping by. I set up at Zapp Hall in Warrenton if you are there in the Fall, please stop by and say hello. My tent is the only one that backs up to the front of the Hall. I did some San Antonio shopping, I'm sure you saw the post. And, if I lived that close to Austin, I'd probably go every weekend. You might also visit Georgetown, there are some great shops there. I've done several posts on the shops there as well. Hope you stop again soon, Theresa
