Roadtrippin' east bound with the sun rising over the Texas hills, a sense of excitement filled the Jeep. We were headed to Warrenton and Round Top for the semi-annual Antiques Fair. Indie rock tunes, a Starbucks brew, and good conversation filled the three hour trip to the Warrenton fields where we meandered into a free parking space at the Bar W Field, our favorite spot to begin. With more than 100,000 shoppers and 60 barns, fields, dance halls, and tents, it's like an adult carnival for bohemians, gypsies, pickers, and cowgirls...
Warm days in the high 80's, sometimes rain, the weather can change by the hour in Texas. Come prepared with Hunter or cowboy boots, comfy flip-flops, converse sneakers, whatever floats your Bohemian boat. We captured this lovely Bohemian and her fun street style outside the Warrenton Grocery. Please visit her Bohemian fashion booth in Renck Hall.
Good eats like fully-loaded baked potatoes, kettle corn, peach pie, Texas BBQ, and grilled jalapeno corn on the cob are delicious pit stop treats. There are full bars and margarita machines in several fields and delicious iced tea refills at Royer's Cafe at Zapp Hall. And when your done for the day, visit the original Royer's Cafe in Round Top. Rich and delicious Southern dishes; Reservations required.
Shopping trends this Fall were automobile parts like doors, fenders, grills, and tailgates, Mexican pottery, metal letters, embellished apparel, skulls, antlers, mid-century vintage, and shabby anything.
We filled the Jeep with old tin, wrought iron, old barn wood, antlers, Mexican baskets and wooden bowls; everything we need for the construction of our Bohemian Gypsy Tent at Houston's Nutcracker Market. (Booth 422, November 13-16.) With a Jeep filled to its brim, we headed west into a gorgeous purple sunset.
