Texas Antiques & Phenomenal Antiques Shows

The Round Top Antiques Fairs & Marburger Farms Antiques Shows are the end of September to first weekend in October and again the end of March into the first weekend in April…EVERY YEAR!!  Book your room today and starting  your shopping list!  The following is what it was like in 2011…….thankfully, 2012 was not as hot or dry!

“Marburger Farm has done it again. The twice yearly mega-show in Round Top, Texas has overcome hurricanes, wars, recessions and more. This Sept. 27–Oct. 1, the prospects included all of those, plus the tail end of the driest, hottest Texas summer in decades. But the not-so-little show that could pulled off a winner again.

After two hot days, about noon on Thursday, a clap of thunder sounded. “In our tent,” said Patrick Kenny of upstate NY’s South Porch Antiques, “with each clap of thunder, people clapped back. When the rain started to pour, they cheered and yehawed, as only Texans can yehaw. At Brimfield, we cried over rain. At Marburger Farm, they were cheering in the aisles.”

As the rain continued, someone turned up the volume on “Amazing Grace” and shoppers found that the 10 football field size tents and 12 historic buildings on Marburger’s 43 acre site provided perfect cover for shopping over 350 exhibitors from 38 states and several nations”….as edited from Antiques.com The Magazine.  Our famous Texas spirit lives on!

Get ready for the next big shopping extravaganza: Spring 2013!  Book your rooms now so your not  left out driving hours away in search of a bed for the night!  The Spring Marburger Farm Antique Show opens Tuesday April 2 for Early Buying Admission from 10 am until 2 pm.
