Spending the day in the countryside, wearing jeans and sneakers, eating barbecue, basking in the bluebonnets in April and the autumn air in October, immersing yourself in endlessly curious and enticing antiques – how could this not be a bit of heaven, according to the book co-authored with Beverly Harris by the Round Top Antiques Fair founder, Emma Lee Turney.
The popular 52nd bi-annual Round Top Antiques Fair is set to begin this month. Plan your trip and gain valuable insight into this antiques extravaganza adventure.
Denim and Diamonds is a fitting phrase for the Round Top Antiques Fair. It is also the name of the book co-authored by Emma Lee Turney and Beverly Harris. It is the story of Emma Lee Turney’s Round Top Antiques Fair and how this now huge bi-annual event began in one small venue in Round Top, Texas in 1968. When the show began, shoppers from Houston would come to the fair to purchase one-of-a-kind antiques for their second homes in the country.
And, at that time in 1968, there were no flea markets. At today’s fair, you will find some of these markets amid what is considered the authentic and best antiques venues like Marburger Farm, Big Red Barn, Cole’s in Warrenton, and the renowned Junk Gypsy Company, located between Round Top and Warrenton.

Vintage shoppers love the idea of finding the unexpected, the unknown when they head to an open-air vintage market, venue or antique shop because they just might discover an item they fall in love with and can’t live without!
Vintage merchandise often sells at affordable prices for quality brand merchandise. In the past, the antique market was inaccessible due to high prices. Today’s market is much more accessible, especially for younger people purchasing items for their first home or for seasoned collectors looking for that special item.
Bob Ferris, an avid vintage scale collector, from Crowley, Texas recently embarked on an antique shopping trip to Austin, Texas. He planned his trip in advance and targeted 2 shops he thought were good prospects for finding scales. While disappointed that these shops did not have what he was looking for, he decided to stop and visit a third shop, not on his list, before he left the Austin area. He was excited when he landed a unique find along with its original parts, some of which were being sold separately because the shop owners were not aware that the scale and the parts went together.

Recreate, Embrace Memories Past While Vintage Shopping
So what is Vintage? Items 20 to 100 years old originating from a previous era have that romantic aura about them because they have a past and a story behind the story. Antiques are items 100 years old or older. Owning these items can make buyers feel nostalgic as they recreate and embrace distinct memories of places and things from their past. The term “retro” means “relating to, reviving, or being the styles and especially the fashions of the past: fashionably nostalgic or old-fashioned,” according to Merriam Webster Dictionary.
Vintage decor and accessories can be surprisingly modern. A popular trend is mixing vintage with new, as well as creating a unique mix of various styles and eras. The photo of the dining room below is my own dining room, unintentionally put together without any specific planning after Randy and I moved into our new home in Crowley, Texas in May of 2019. The items below were items Randy had in his own collection. It was amazingly fun to decorate our retro dining area with this Coca Cola collection. As you can see, the grandkids love the Coca-Cola booth. We just need one of those table-top junk boxes to put at the end of it!

Antique, Vintage and Retro items also make for a great way to create an individual look with the new upcycling, recycling, repurposing, refurbishing and repainting quality antique furniture trends. Steam Punk, Architectural Salvage and Farmhouse have also become popular for their individuality.

Vintage Shopping Offers Personalized Look
There are lots of reasons that vintage has become popular. One of them is that shoppers believe that mainstream items have become less unique and that mass-produced furniture and accessories are routine copy-cat items that anyone can buy.
There is a quality to vintage that makes it transcend newer items because they are chosen for uniqueness, quality, and design value.
Designers are integrating old looks that were once popular into modern décor for a unique, eclectic mix. A popular trend is “if you love it and it speaks to you, it works! Don’t stress over what somebody else thinks.
It’s never been so easy to look modern and current while reusing the old.
Vintage Shopping Offers Unchanging styles
There are always going to be people who prefer individual and interesting pieces and buy them as investments or one-offs. Shoppers are waking up to the fact that vintage can be adaptable to the latest trends, and that they are also timeless classics that can become a staple of their lifestyle. They will always be in style in their own way. You can pick up the latest trend and have something that’s only good for a few weeks, or you can buy something vintage you can enjoy for years.
Originality and Style Comes With Vintage Shopping
One of the most important aspects of a stylish home is being original. It tells a lot about a person and his or her personality. Vintage upcycling, re-purposing, repainting, industrial and architectural creations allow people to express themselves while creating their own original lifestyle, to fit in, yet stand out. It’s hard to do that, but anything is possible with creativity and skills to see the vision and bring it to reality.
Heart and Story: Part of Vintage Shopping
Vintage has a heart to it – there’s a story behind the story. There’s much more to vintage than just being old and used. There is a history and art to vintage because these items are filled with the stories and memories of the people that came before us and owned them. Owning vintage keeps those people and their history and artistry alive.
When it’s all said done, owning vintage means being packaged in a unique way.
It’s matchless, it’s distinct, it’s rare and many times, it’s just plain extraordinary.
8.5.19 ROUND TOP, TEXAS – If an antique show had secrets, what would they be? The October 1- 5 Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top, Texas spills some secrets here. For instance, did you know that shoppers can actually enter the show early on Tuesday October 1 at 8 a.m.? And did you know that those very early birds will find a complimentary continental breakfast, coffee and shopping in the early Texas buildings at the show’s Tuesday Tailgate Breakfast? Not to mention early parking and an opportunity to swap tales with top interior designers who are part of the Designer Dream Spree tour.
What other secrets? Marburger exhibitor Susan Wheeler from Susan Wheeler Home in Seattle shares this surprising secret: “Never shop with a plan. Be open to what you find.” Where has that led Wheeler for the fall show in Round Top? To pink! Pink? Yes, amid the pearl gray and black upholstered French and Italian furniture for which she is known, look for Wheeler’s pink in Mid-Century Modern art, in antique dishes, in pillows made from vintage Indian saris with gold thread, and for the first time, in a selection of 1960s-80s designer clothing by Lanvin, Pucci and all their friends.
More secrets? “If an antique speaks to you, don’t stress over whether it will work in your house. If you love something, it will work with all the other things that you love because of you,” says North Carolina exhibitor Joanne La Poma. Exhibiting in Marburger’s air-conditioned General Store building, La Poma deals in the secrets that emerge from the earth. In addition to collections of Victorian jewelry and sterling baby gifts, her inventory includes fossils and mineral specimens, most about 150 million years old. “When they dig a vein, you never know what they will find.” La Poma will offer copper specimens from old Michigan mines, as well as ammonite fossils that display well in many settings, from homes to offices to commercial spaces.
A few more secrets about Marburger Farm: on Tuesday, October 1, look for book signings by Annie Sloan of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ and by Leslie Sinclair of Segreto Finishes, as well as visits with one of the show’s sponsor, Chairish, and the folks from Schumacher with their exquisite magazine. Of course, you definitely want to look for the new Bingo Hall Biergarten by Back Porch BBQ and the new cocktails bar by Ellis Motel Emporium and Lounge.
Along those lines, on Wednesday, October 2, from 3 to 5 p.m., enjoy Whiskey Wednesday, the annual Marburger whiskey tasting bash by guest bartender Tara Suel, Marburger’s Chief Connections Officer. All donations will go to the Brookwood Community and Dwell with Dignity.
More dealer secrets? Getting a trade secret from Bob Bixby of Farm & Factory Interiors in Missouri is a big deal. Bixby and his wife Becky run one of the largest UL Certified repurposed lighting companies in the United States, serving interior designers, homeowners, commercial and restaurant customers with large scale industrial chandeliers, sconces and other lighting. “My secret is simple,” says Bob Bixby. “Offer unusual pieces and great design at a fair price.” How will that translate in the fall show? New designs are coming in response to shopper requests for sconces and other wall lighting, such as industrial vanity and porch lights. Plus, massive steel chandeliers will be displayed in a context of antique furniture, old advertising signs and a huge Iowa step back glass-front cupboard. Throw in some fall garden furnishings and you have antique-industrial paradise.
Another version of paradise will arrive with Charleston, South Carolina exhibitor Letha Polk of Le Petite Tresor. “Everywhere I go, I’m always searching for vintage rattan and a funky mix —everything from unusual old-school pieces to Mid-Century Modern.” That’s her secret: “It’s the mix that makes a home work. Buy across different styles and eras.” This show’s mix will include a pair of six foot tall rattan chairs with backs that curve high up over the sitter, plus a metal Chinese Chippendale fretwork coffee table turned into an ottoman, a sleek Danish Modern sofa and a pair of Milo Baughman metal chairs with cane backs that Polk describes as “killer crazy good” —antiques dealer secret language for the best of the best.
The final and best secret comes from Texas dealer Rodney Cooley of Urban Habitat. Along with his wife Shonte, Cooley will offer a 15 foot farmhouse table from Pennsylvania, an industrial table/kitchen island with metal locker topped by a huge chopping block and a collection of Victorian cast iron outdoor furniture (porch season starts in Texas around October 1). His secret? “Those of us who buy and sell and live with antiques love what we do. We all really love this. We could shop seven days a week and never complain.”
Never complain? Now that’s a secret worth knowing! Come shop with the 350 exhibitors at Marburger Farm on 43 acres of fun. Look for every style, era and price point, from antiquities to Mid-Century Modern to the select artisans with original arts. One admission is good all week and includes your parking and WIFI. The show opens Tuesday, October 1, with Early Buying at 10 a.m. for $25 admission —or Tailgate Tuesday Breakfast at 8 a.m. Regular $10 admission begins from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. that day and continues on Wednesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 and Saturday, October 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. On-site shipping is offered by Distinguished Transport and UPS.

Antiques & Vintage shopping in Grapevine, Texas – What’s in store for the day ahead? A visit to an old restored 2-story Victorian home turned antique shop, a 2-story antique mall with 150 dealers and a cozy and inviting atmosphere, a high-end European antique shop with an all-in-one Italian winery and café, and a quaint neighborhood home with a separate red shed full of European antiques.
Even the rain didn’t stop shoppers from parking their vehicles behind and adjacent to the downtown area, popping up their umbrellas and strolling through the downtown shopping area to find that special item.
You can’t miss the grand staircase to your right as you walk in the door of the Grapevine Antiques Market, 1641 W. Northwest Highway. But before you climb the staircase, the ground level shopping offers approximately 100 dealer booths from a Monkee’s Scrap Book Album, regular $50, now $40 to an old white carved side table, regular $59 on sale for $44, a vintage brass lamp for $24.
“People who shop here are looking to make their house a home – looking to find that unusual one-of-a-kind piece that is going to make their home special,” Assistant manager, Kenny Schmidt.
Don’t forget to stop at Beverly Riley’s Rusty Relics booth – the name says it all – you will see a rusty tinged 1934 Ford fender positioned on a barge board to create a unique, one-of-a-kind table. This was a 1800s barge board that once floated the Mississippi river – it started at the top of the river, and floated down with the goods on it. Beverly said the boards are emerging again and being sold at high prices. “If you looked on the wood from the bottom side you would see all kinds of little bug tunnels – these boards have a lot of character.”

Leaving the Rusty Relics booth, there are two staircases to get to the full-service guitar shop, a booth with over 10,000 albums. Kenny said they have some very young people who are interested in the guitar loft. He said the younger clientele are getting into the old vinyl records and record players. He said they will soon have a booth featuring vintage video games and they are getting ready to open a consignment shop with furniture. “There may some antiques, but some will not be – this is going to reach a different demographic for us.”
