Your Complete Winter Round Top Antiques Show Guide
The venues and vendors you need to explore.
While it’s scaled back from the sprawling and raucous fall and spring shows, the more manageable Winter Round Top Antiques Show still offers more than you could possibly imagine. The Winter Show runs from January 21 to 24, and it makes for a true retreat in these COVID-19 times.
The crowds are not nearly as large and there are still plenty of treasures to find. The Winter Round Top Antiques Show offers a much more personal experience in many ways. It is also a great way to get into the Round Top antiques scene without being overwhelmed.
Many dealers will be bringing their wares from far and wide, showcasing design inspiration, collections and rarities of all sorts, architectural accents, and furnishings spanning from mid-century to last century and beyond. Boot up, lace up and mask up, it’s time to get ready for the Winter Round Top Antiques Show.
