|Antlers at Bar W aisle I|
Trends we’re seeing:Lot of cast aluminum this year, metal letters, lace and linen clothes, Bar-W "aisle I" tons of antlers and quilts, wonderful vintage linens everywhere! Silver plate silverware at Round Top Hill and La Bahia, Blue glass in a tent on front lawn of Coles. Burlap is still popular and the burlap coffee bags are back again at many show sites.
|La Bahia, Blue & White|
La Bahia (SH 237 near Burton) Vendor’s fill the old hall, and spill out into tents under the ancient oaks. This show site is filled with great glass, crystal, silver, jewelry, flow blue, and wonderful vintage linens. Parking is easy. Food service is simple, we enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches and coleslaw. There are tables to sit at and enjoy a great breeze through the open windows.
If you haven’t been to Chelsea Meadow, Round Top Hill and Arbor International Antiques make the trip. They had police officers assisting shoppers in crossing the highway and the show sites are encouraging shoppers to park in one place and visit all three show sites. These are great places to shop, each with a different identity and great finds.
At Round Top Hill we spotted great silverware, vintage jewelry, man-cave décor, and other fantastic finds.
The Tin Café serves food with a daily special.

Arbor International Antiques has Pandora Balthazar’s fabulous linens, “That Mexican Shirt Booth” everyone is talking about, amazing original art, the Martini Bar and live music every night. There is lots of variety at Arbor International Antiques, rustic bar stools next to elegant French and European antiques. We have seen amazing unique items at Chelsea's Meadow. Vintage pieces and repurposed items. Chelsea's Meadow never disappoints with great furniture pieces, and “Mel’s Diner” for hungry shoppers.
