Can you believe it, that we are 10 days away from being at some of the best antique shows in this part of Texas! So, as I've usually done, here are 10 more reasons why you don't want to miss the shows:
(Jill's booth at Little House on the Hill show)
The Zapp Hall antique show is located in downtown Warrenton with opening day on Friday March 26th - you know I had to feature this one as number one since I'm here at this show. Let me go ahead and explain where I'll be located since several of you have asked. My tent is located directly in front of the hall. If you are standing at the front steps to the hall, look to your left. I'm the only tent that backs up directly in front of it. As a reminder, my blog party is on Sunday, March 28th at 6pm ~ you are most definately invited if you are going to be in the area. There are so many great vendors that are going to be at Zapp Hall, so come down and see each of them and be sure and check out Royers for great food or relax with your friends at the bubble lounge. Also, don't forget this is where the famous Junk Gypsy crew is located and I so hope you've made plans to attend their prom on April 1st. There is no charge to get into Zapp Hall and have lunch at Royer's while you are here~the pie is divine!!
The Marburger Farms Show - is in Warrenton, but this show does not open until Tuesday, March 30. You will have to pay $25 to get in early but I promise you it is well worth the early rate for the best stuff and displays. If you wait until after 2pm, it's only $10 to get in but all the great displays have usually been torn apart by this time. I'll be here early showing you what great things and artists/stylists that can be found here. Check out their website for a list of who all you can find here and you can also find their exact location on their website.
The Texas Rose Show - is located right across from Marburger Farms. Vickie is the owner of the show and their displays are always a must see. There is a small to go Mexican eatery here and they make some of the best Mexican food around. For those that know me, you know I'm very particular about my Mexican food, but I think it's some of the best around.
The Cole's Antiques Show is located off Hwy 237 in downtown Warrenton, and here you can find more great vendors. They also have really nice bathrooms here, which is important at the shows unless you just prefer using the port-a-potties. It's air conditioned and great place to visit.
The Clutter Show's opening party is on Friday, March 26 @ 4pm and this show is run by sisters, Shirley Schwantz and Staci Schwantz. Be sure and get there early to wait in line to see their great displays. They normally have wine, beer, drinks and refreshments for their opening party.
The Gin is located on the opposite side street as Zapp Hall. Here you'll find really great finds if you don't mind digging for that special treasure.
The Bar W Field is located down from the Cole's Antique show and this is one of my favorite fields to shop at. Look for their big sign, you can't miss it. You just never know what you'll find here or who you'll see here. There is just row after row of great things to be found.
Little House on the Hill Show is located by the Dillards Field in downtown Warrenton.
- The Tree Park Antiques Show, which is the last show on the left just as you are leaving Warrenton. Look for their signs.
- The The LaBahia show is one of the first shows you will come to as you turn onto Hwy 237 from Hwy 290 or it's the last show if you leaving from Round Top, you'll pass Carmine and then it will be the last show before heading onto Hwy 290.
