Roundtop - Warrenton Junking Trip


Well I finally made it down to Roundtop - Warrenton, TX for the mother of all antique and junking shows. My friend Robin and I left on Thursday with plans to come home on Sunday but were having so much fun, we didn't make it back home until Monday night.


There are a gazillion vendors set up in tents along the road for miles. You never know what treasures are waiting for you under the next tent or piled up in the pasture.

Here are a few of the things that made it back home with me:

 A pile of vintage laces and trims.
 Some of these are French, some are Irish and all of them are gorgeous!

Love the bottle with the spider webs...perfect for my witch's apothecary for Halloween.

I love vintage tins and boxes whether for the kitchen or bath.

Saw tons of old pictures but couldn't bring all of them home so picked a few that said "pick me, pick me".

I bought a few more things but already have them cleaned and in their new home.  My hubby was surprised that I didn't come home with more......I'll know better next time *wink*.

LOVE the lace you picked up and that spiderweb bottle. I just know it will become something fantastic.
