Round Top-Bound Head to the State’s Biggest Antiques Extravaganza ast one to leave Houston for the annual Spring Antique Weeks, don’t forget to turn off the lights.

L

This famous statewide and nationwide shopping frenzy returns to Round Top from April 2-7 and to more than a halfdozen small rural towns between Houston and Austin. Some shows begin as soon as March 16, so check with the cities’ convention and visitors bureaus for the latest on dates. More than 2,000 independent dealers welcome shoppers searching for the perfect buy, perusing in stores, under tents, in dance halls, churches, grocery stores and barns. Bring your camera, too, as March and April in Texas mean bluebonnets and wildflowers in full bloom.

ROUND TOP

You’ve arrived at the antique mecca of Texas. Rows of big white tents and more venues filled to the brim are ready. For your convenience, we’ve researched and put in alphaorder some of the hot spots for antiquing, lodging and just having a great time.

Antiquing Across Texas BY MARY CHAVOUSTIE

sk your BSF (Best Shopping Friend) to name a favorite antiquing town and no doubt you’ll hear a variety of replies. Antique lovers now span generations, with the word “antique” meaning everything from iridescent Carnival glass to that retro black trunk you took to college. Check out these BSF top-ranked stops next time you’re traveling Texas — and buy your piece of history.

A

AUSTIN Once you find Room Service Vintage (www.roomservicevintage.com), you’ll wish you’d discovered it 35 years ago when the owners first opened their doors. Whether it’s a ’50s sectional or Chubby Checker on vinyl, expect to stay awhile because you won’t want to leave. www.austintexas.org

BRENHAM

Bluebird Off the Square’s owner proudly admits her “passion has always been junking!” (www.bluebirdoffthesquare.com). Debbie Schmitz’s talent for taking what’s old and combining it with what’s new brings a style all its own to home decor. JR’s Antiques & Collectibles’ “vintage” location (circa 1885) blends naturally with the aisles of collectibles, antique furniture, linens and home goods that are housed within. Today and Yesterday (www.todayandyesterdayantiques.com) is located inside the former 1872 Brenham Grand Opera House, a product of Texas architect George E. Dickey — an apropos setting for an array of glassware, antique toys and furniture, memorabilia and beautiful stained glass windows. Visitors to Leftover’s Antique Home Mercantile (www.leftovers antiques.com), just west of Brenham, are more than happy to linger in the store’s 17,000 square feet of bliss. Maybe it’s the aromatic soaps and perfumed lotions that draw you inside or the European furnishings that let you consider gifting yourself. Leftover’s own sweet potato pecan butter and Gala apple preserves are equal draws, antiques aside! www.visitbrenhamtexas.com

CANTON

Don't wait for First Monday Trade Days to go to Canton. Local antique and specialty stores in Historic Downtown Canton are open throughout the week. Dish Warehouse (www.dishware housecantontx.com), Texas largest Fiesta® outlet, probably has that Cobalt or Scarlet dinner plate you’ve been missing. www.visitcantontx.com 44 house& home | March 2018 | www.houstonhouseandhome.net

COMFORT

Take a midday break from your Hill Country wine tour and step into the Comfort Antique Mall. Aisles and aisles of beautiful glassware, vintage brooches, lamps and collectibles are all neatly displayed. Antique chests and armoires, too. Take the virtual tour at www.visitcomfortantiquemall.com. www.comfortchamber.com

FREDERICKSBURG

So much to do, so much to see! Who could pick just one of anything in beautiful Fredericksburg? Step back in time to a peaceful oneness with textiles and wood as you walk through Carol Hicks Bolton Antiqüités (www.carolhicksbolton.com). You’ll find yourself getting lost in the romance and the story that each piece still holds. www.visitfredericksburgtx.com

GIDDINGS

Giddings is the perfect tantalizer for those traveling eastbound. Whistle Stop Antiques-Auction has something for everyone with its 40-plus dealers continually updating their niches. Simply Spruced will show you the meaning of “upcycle” with its take on painted furniture, making that salvaged “diamond-in-the-rough” the envy of your friends. www.giddingstx.com

GRUENE

Surely you know Gruene Hall and its A-list of performers, but have you walked the 6,500 square feet of Gruene Antique Co.? It’s only fitting GAC is housed in the historic H.D. Gruene Building (1903), where tenant farmers once bought their wares. www.gruenetexas.com

HUNTSVILLE

The Rusty Chippy, Vintage, Hippy & Garden Show, set March 10-11, has a following all its own with its 65-plus dealers. The Huntsville Antique Show, planned for the air-conditioned Walker County Fairgrounds on Sept. 15 and 16, is another show not to miss. Repeat visitors plan their day with a stop at their favorite dealers, eager to find what pieces have made the journey to Texas. huntsvilleantiqueshow.com

KERRVILLE

Bring your best walking shoes for the 20,000 square feet of multifloor bliss at Sunrise Antique Mall. What better place to build or expand your vinyl collection from their over 4,000 records in stock. www.sunriseantiquemall.webs.com


COOKING CLASSES
