The Last of It, But…Round Top Year Round???

Standard

Sandra at FoodieAffair.com, my sweet blog follower ,  I did not find out about the Great Dane at Round Top.  I never made it back there for a thousand reasons, but mainly I had company at Round Top on my next trips and they were males so no meandering and oodling and ahhhwing  just all out searching for guns and swords and man stuff.  On the other hand I did get to sneak a peak at some things and snatch up a few very quickly so here goes…

1944 Dimes made into Bracelets.  I picked up a few extra for purchase.   1944 Dime Bracelet $80 plus shipping.  Extra dimes can be added for larger sizes.  All set in sterling silver.

1936-37 Buffalo and Indian Head Nickel Bracelets $75 plus shipping.

Hand Made Cypress Chairs have been around a long time.  I still like them and since I have never owned one I would like to fill my porch with them.  No maintenance and very comfy.  These come from a retired gentlemen who lamented, “I have all the time in the world to make special orders.”  The chairs sell for $125 each.  He makes a lovely settee which sells for $375.  I will be taking special orders and making the trip of anyone is interested in placing an order with me.

Strawberry Cake Cover and Stand

I don’t know why, but I wanted this thing!  It was funny and delightful and oh so kitschy so I bought and used it for company over the weekend.  It’s handmade ceramics at its most whimsical.    On bottom is the name Steve.  Hmmmm, I wonder who Steve was and did he continue in a career in ceramics?   Now I am ready to pass it on to someone new and will be placing it in my booth in the near future at $44 or will ship at cost.

Louis Vuitton Tables

These were the last ones left on the last day.  The one on the left was listed at $1900 and the one on the right was $900.  I am not a collector of Louis, but I suppose I could make an exception.  Just not this time, but Tikaa if you are reading this …I was thinking of you.

Round Top Year Round

If you think of it, Brenham IS Round Top Year Round!  There are antique shops and boutiques lining both sides of the courthouse square in Downtown Brenham.  Truthfully, a lot of the pickers for Round Top scour the shops in Brenham the weeks before Round Top to increase their inventory for the big show.  With just an hour drive from Houston or Austin, we can have Round Top all year.    Here’s the latest in my antique booth at Hermann’s Antique Mall located on Alamo Street in Downtown Brenham.
