AW Blog Thursday Show Edition

Computer keys and typewriter keys made into Magnets!

AntiqueWeekend Spring 2014 is winding down. Many shows close Saturday, a few will be open Sunday, try Warrenton, but arrive early!

Cool thing....

seen at Zapp Hall, typewriter and computer keys popped off their keyboards and turned into magnets! (before you ask, Melissa’s Garden behind Lone Star BBQ usually has bunches of typewriter keys)
Clever tables at Round Top Rendezvous

Cool idea: 

We have seen quite a few women in Warrenton carrying away doors they have purchased.  Yes doors.  Where are they going and what will they do with them?  I do get it, doors are cool, and I am guilty of making my husband bring home several.  I'm inspired to try a picnic table like we saw at Round Top Rendezvous.  Using old doors make simple picnic tables really special.  And if you are really talented try this garden shed made of doors.  Awesome.

Show Spotlight:

Round Top Square and The Triangle
People often describe the many, many shows that make up AntiqueWeekend as “Round Top”.  So what will you find in the city limits of the tiny burg of Round Top?  The center of the action is the Round Top courthouse square.  Steps away are Henkel Square, Bybee Square, the Knuztzen’s show site, and across the highway “The Triangle”.  The historic courthouse is surrounded by dozens of booths featuring cowgirl chic clothes, hand crafted decorative pieces and much more.
Across the street from the courthouse at Knutzen’s you’ll find Richard Schmidt Jewelry. Schmidt, nationally recognized jewelry artist who creates his signature pieces out of sterling silver, 14K gold, gems and turquoise.  His imagery of arrows and chiefs is inspired by trips to Santa Fe. They also have fun jewelry, t-shirts and other neat stuff Janet Schmidt finds.

Both Bybee Square and Henkel Square feature art galleries and unique shops, housed in restored historic buildings.  In the grand, and air conditioned!, Henkel Hall, Bistro 108 has its show venue, plus the Blue Door trunk show and antique chairs.  AW scouts enjoyed a Bistro beef tenderloin sandwich with apple and brie on French bread, yes please!
On Henkel Square, Pie Haven serves wonderful coffee and famous Royer’s pies sweet and savory.   At Bybee Square Lyn Foley, glass bead jeweler will be meeting shoppers at The Gallery at Round Top.
Bonedust and Bodega, I'll have two of each!
Across the highway (the constable will cross you safely) is The Triangle where you’ll find Bonedust at “Forgiven Texas”, the Bodega, and a collection of great airstreams housing dealers with amazing stuff.  A block south of the square is the Village Green, home of Scotty and Friends restaurant (try the “Whole Hog” pork tenderloin with raspberry chipotle sauce, oh my!), Expressions Coffee and Art, and we spotted a few dealer tents set up there.

Don’t Miss

Anna’s Linens- short distance from the square North on SH 237, selling all things linen, apparel and bedding.  And a new happening across from Anna's Linens at the Merry Christmas Store. 

Show Food We Love:

Royers at Zapp Hall

AW has eaten at Royers Café in Round Top many times over the years, and we love the Pie Haven in Round Top’s Henkel Square Market.  Royer’s Fall show menu at their Zapp Hall booth did not disappoint.  AW Foodies enjoyed (and I mean enjoyed) the Grilled Shrimp BLT and Beef Tenderloin Tips.  The BLT is four large grilled shrimp with thick-sliced crisp bacon, served on a nice hoagie-style bread roll slathered with the perfect mustard vinaigrette.  The beef tips are accompanied by a wonderful potato salad and a great “Texas caviar-style” cold black-eyed pea salad.  Also available are sodas, beers, and fabulous Royers mini-pies.  We will be back to see what they are offering on the 2014 Spring menu!!!

Don’t Miss Prom! 

Tonight is the Junk Gypsy’s celebrated event: Prom.  Dancing, shopping, eating and drinking from sunset until late in the evening at their booth in Warrenton.
If you forgot your prom dress, Stone Cellar will have live music and food in Round Top.
