Although two heads are better than one, the Round Top Antiques Show has so much going on that the possibilities are more than what we can collect ourselves.

To put this in perspective, the nation’s largest antiques, vintage and junk show sprawls out for more than 20 miles and into nearby communities. Thousands of dealers showcase their wares. No central organizing body governs this extravaganza, so it’s the free market in action. Food vendors, musicians and special events pop up all over the place. Getting the big picture?

To help us help you, we’ve turned to some inveterate explorers and created a Round Top reading collection. It’s group effort to help you “know before you go to the show…” Click on the links below, get yourself informed and be prepared to be excited about the adventure that is awaiting you on our welcoming back roads. Don’t forget to wave….
