Antiquing in Round Top

IMG_1786IMG_1783 Its that time of year again!!!!!!… Antique Weekend in Round Top, Texas….. Hundreds of thousands of people descend on this rural community that is transformed twice a year into a Collectors Paradise. This is held in the spring and fall every year, rain or shine.  From Austin it is about an hour drive to Carmine ,Texas on Hwy 290. From there take SH 237 to Round Top/Warrenton. There are 7 heavenly miles of non-stop tents with many unique vendors. The show sites are also on many other roads in the area extending to Fayetteville and Shelby. My favorite is Warrenton. It has miles of goody-loaded tents to browse through. I have spent 2 full days there and have not even begun to see it all. Whether your looking for restored antiques, stained glass windows reclaimed from Texas churches, Custom made furniture, Clothing, Chabby Chic décor, Furniture made with some interesting reclaimed items, or just love browsing flea markets like I do , then  this is the place to be! People watching is always entertaining and they have food vendors that are unbelieveable!
During my wandering I came across several dental items that I took some pictures of to share on our 12 Oaks Dental blog. Anything dental interests me and although I am not sure how old these items were exactly , they are from many decades ago. I asked what was kept in the glass area but the vendor was not fully knowledgeable of the exact use of it. But it was a very beautiful cabinet.
The  Dental Cab had dental instruments in it from long ago. Obviously a dentist could travel with it to treats patients making dental care more available to people whether it be in rural areas or home bound patients needing treatment.
A vendor that was out there told me that it would take at least 2 weeks to view it all. A collectors paradise for sure. The next show dates are Monday March 28-April 2, 2016 and then again September 26-October 1, 2016 so start planning your trip to Round Top!
