It’s that time of the year again! The end of summer brings some relief from the Central Texas heat with some cooler temperatures and even a few showers. It also brings the Fall Antique show. For those of you who have not attended one, it is overwhelmingly big. It basically stretches from SH 71 in LaGrange up through Warrenton and Round Top to SH 290.
To help those of you who have never experienced it here are some links to show how big it is. Also going to feature some shopping stops but there is so much there is no way to feature it all which you will see when you watch the Fly Over video. So here is a list of some YouTube videos to help you get an idea of what happens here for two weeks in the fall, and then again two weeks in the spring!
Here is a video on how to shop and what to expect when you get here!
And some videos so you can see some of the many shops and areas up and down the road you can stop at! Keep in mind you can’t see this all in one day, or even two or three. That is one of the reasons we all go back year after year, it is never the same and there are always amazing finds to see and buy!
One of the traditions that have come out of this antique extravaganza is the Gypsy Prom held at Zapp Hall the last Thursday of the show. From what I understand this started when the ladies at the Junk Gypsy decided that there were just so many wonderful old prom dresses needing a new life. The original theme was to play dress up in an old prom dress and to Texify it. Over the years it has become quite an event. I have my “prom” dress ready to go for this year’s prom date of October 4th. Check it out!
