The Texas Antique Weekend came to a close under cloudy skies, rain, 45F temperature and a wind chill under 30F. But hardy and undaunted shoppers trounced through the mud and continued in search of last day bargains. And there were there to be found. While many of the larger indoor shows closed on schedule Saturday, Round Top square booths remained open as did most of the Warrenton fields and other shows scattered across the countryside.
As the week comes to a close we look back on lots and lots of activity. It was another tremendously successful show that leaves everyone needing a rest. It's not the time to think about the next Antique Weekend being only six short months away, that kind of thought doesn't start for at least another two weeks.
The Texas Antique Weekend is like no other event. We saw massive building columns fifteen feet tall, signs larger than twelve foot in diameter, buckets by the bushel, every form of collectible, antique and artwork. From flea market to fine art gallery, it was all here. And the most amazing thing is that it will all be here again. The next Texas Antique Weekend will start with a preview weekend March 30th, 31st and April 1st, followed by a week of shows leading up to the April 6 & 7th Antique Weekend.
