Get Some Junk in Your Trunk

|

People come from all across the country to “Junk” and “antique” along a 9-mile stretch of texas highway that offers a mind-boggling array of reclaimed treasures, fine antiques, and plain old junk that folks just can’t get enough of!

Antiques Week happens twice a year in and around the true Texas town of Round Top. COWGIRL set out this past April on a road trip to find out first hand what the excitement was all about. We discovered it’s all about Texas char m, marathon antiquing and world-class junking in the string of small towns that run along Texas Highway 237 from Carmine to La Grange. Round Top is the epicenter of the antiquing universe, with its quaint town square, humble restaurants and of course the Junk Gypsy world headquarters (which was our base camp for the week.) Not only did we have the best fried chicken ever, we shopped literally miles of what can be considered one of the largest, longest, and most lauded yard sales in the country. We also ran into (and chatted with) former Texas Governor Rick Perry at Zapp Hall—where we did not talk politics, but the wonders of the small town he calls home;  a town which attracts tens-of-thousands of visitors looking for that perfect antique or repurposed treasure to call their own. On these pages,  some images we captured during our delightful stay in Round Top.

Miles and miles of the largest, longest, and most lauded yard sales in the country. Antiquing and junking go beyond the hunt. This open air festival includes evening events, parties, food, drink, music and of course, plenty of down-home Texas hospitality.
