Marburger Farms Antique Show

I really don't know where to begin since I literally took so many photo's of people, places, things, and friends, so I thought I'd break them down by show, parties, people/friends categories. Let's see if this works because I really have a lot to share with you.

On Tuesday, my friend Marion and I headed out to the opening day of Marburger. We normally wait until 2pm and then go, but because we were so psyched to get there early before all the great booths were dismantled, we were one of the first one's in line.

The first booth needs no introduction as she has been in the Country Living Magazine and just about everyone I mention her name to knows her. Now she has a good eye for finding the coolest things, that's Peg of French Vanilla. Peg if you are reading this I want to plan a shopping day with you:

Judy Hill really doesn't need an introduction as well. She too has been in many magazines and she could actually write a book on design, that's just how creative I think she is. She is by far my most favorite inspiration person. I absolutely love all that she does. Judy sets up each month in Canton in the Arbors when she's not at Marburger:

My friend Theresa Smith who was in the May 2007 Country Living magazine did a great job of decorating her space at Marburger. Every time I mention her, I hear many people comment on just how beautiful and unique her home is. I know that I'm attracted to her space because of all the white and neutral colors:

Shelley and her Sweet Pea husband were first timers at Marburger. I hope she received a huge Texas welcome since she and her husband are such sweet people. I was so glad to finally meet them after so many emails. Shelley did a great job of displaying her things at Marburger. Can't wait to see her space in the fall to see what new goodies she'll bring from Florida:

I had heard about Mo's space for sometime, but never really knew which one it was. Well I made it a point to definately check her out. She's just as creative as her sister Janet. I just loved how she put it all together. Great job Mo!!

I first met Linda Parker at the Austin City Garage Sale and then saw her space in Uncommon Objects Antiques in Austin and instantly loved her look. She repurpose things from their original use or makes something very different. She normally does a lot of black and white, which I love.

This is Donna's space. She was formally at Zapp Hall, but it seems that Marburger is going to suit her style. She's normally one of the first one's to attend the show and now she doesn't have to rush to it. Donna is such a sweet person and I will really miss visiting with her at the Zapp Hall show, but I wish her luck her at this one:

Last, but not least is Terri's space. She too formally set up at Zapp Hall. Terri and Jana have the coolest look, botanicals, garden furniture, and just wonderful things. It all looked so pretty, hope it went well for her too!!

Now you see why you don't want to miss the next Round Top/Warrenton show. There are so many talented dealers at these shows that have the best finds around. Make plans to attend the next one.


  1. Such wonderful eye-candy, thanks for the tour. I can't wait to spend some more time looking at your pictures.

  2. Oh my goodness! Did you think you were in Heaven??? I can't imagine seeing so many beautiful old things all in one place! Thank you so much for sharing photos with those of us who can't attend these wonderful shows.

  3. hey friend...thanks so much for the pics of my booth. I missed my Zapp family and the cool customers we have over there, although some of them found their way to Marburger and actually recognized us out of all of the fabulous booths there. Sorry i didn't make it over to see you, but i was by myself and didn't have lots of down time. I read your blog everyday, so i am keeping up with you. Your booth pics look great!What is your email so i can contact you about the show in a not so public manner? Keep up the good work! Terri Squyres

    It has been a few years since I last visited Roundtop. With school children involved in so many things,it is so hard to make the trip. So, your pictures are just a real treat!! Thank you again! I can't wait to read the next posting!!
