Fixer Upper and AntiqueWeekend at the Shows!

Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper at the shows!

During the Fall 2014 Show AntiqueWeekend was excited to assist the Fixer Upper production company team when Chip and Joanna Gaines visited the shows. Joanna has mentioned the Round Top - Warrenton antique shows in past episodes and we were really excited when they contacted us to help! 

Joanna Gaines selecting light fixtures for an upcoming episode

The Gaines visited Marburger Farm in Round Top and Ex-cess in Warrenton picking treasures.  They brought their entire family and were just as terrific as they appear on television.  Chip tossed a football around with the kids, they tried out a French horn they found in one booth and ate pizza for lunch on the picnic benches.  Great kids.  Joanna found some really great red light fixtures at Ex-cess, which were featured in one of this season's episodes. 

This red light fixture caught my eye!

One of the early opening shows is the Antiques on the Square in Fayetteville.  Antiques on the Square opens on March 21st and ends March 31st.  They stay open later in the evening, selling until 9:00pm.  The show fills the community center building and two huge tents spilling over with treasures and fabulous finds.  On the corner Wayne Burnette has great stuff he calls "mantiques", metal wheels, signs, and in the middle of it all a bright red light fixture which immediately made me think of the ones Joanna Gaines picked up for Fixer Upper!  Emil is inside the community center building and he has a little bit of everything, chairs, books, yardsticks, furniture, windmill parts...He's super friendly so if you are looking for something special just ask!
