It is that time of year again! The Fall Antiques show!

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!

 

I live in Fayetteville TX which is about ten minutes from all of this and I am a Career Realtor.  I help Buyers and Sellers with rural residential, farm and ranch, historic and vintage homes, and even help with properties that are live on with business space up front developed or undeveloped.  If you are looking for a Realtor to help you with property in Warrenton, Round Top, Fayetteville, La Grange, , Fayette County, or surrounding counties, please give me a call Five One Two Seven Four Three Zero Five One Six or Contact Me.  I would love to help you!Deb

Happy Antiquing!

Cottages at Bold Heart Farms

If you are looking for a place to unplug, get away from it all, relax, or possibly need a spot to hunker down in South Central Texas while you shop for your forever Texas home, look no further than The Cottages at Bold Heart Farms.  Hostess Maggie Nichol is a long time Real Estate Client of mine.  I helped her with her Real Estate needs in Arizona, and when she moved here to Texas I helped her find this lovely piece of property.  Centrally located, but out in the country, you will find comfortable cottages, gardens, and superior hospitality.  Tell Maggie that Deb sent you! Cottages at Boldheart Farms

Love these colors

Front porches of Fayetteville TX

I am blessed to live in Fayetteville TX, a small city – yes I said city – of approximately 258 voting residents.  Fayetteville is filled with some amazing vintage and historic homes and we own one of them!  Yesterday when I was driving to the post office ( three blocks away! ) I stopped and took some quick photos of some of the beautiful front porches of Fayetteville.  People love to spend time on their porches and they love to decorate them for holidays too.  We are in between 4th of July and Labor Day so there is still a bit of a patriotic theme about town, but you will always find flags flying no matter what time of year.  Fayettevillians proudly fly the American and Texas flags.

Fayetteville is a popular spot for people looking to retire, there is a strong second home market, and there are investment opportunities.  Being a Fayettevillian and a Realtor I would love to help both Buyers and Sellers meet their Real Estate Goals.   Please contact me if you would like more information on my services.
