Whether you’re an interior designer in search of a barley wood occasional table, a homeowner who can’t resist primitives or European antiques, or you just love the hunt for unique vintage finds, “Antique Weeks in Texas” is your one-stop shop for all things wonderful. From year-round mainstays to the nomadic dealers who find refuge at places like The Big Red Barn, Marburger Farms and The Arbors, all roads lead to antiquing in Brenham, Burton, Carmine, Fayetteville, La Grange, Round Top and Warrenton.
Things are a bit different this time around and we’re not sure the Junk-O-Rama Prom is happening. Some of our favorite vendors didn’t survive the pandemic. Fayette and Lee County officials have declared that the shows must go on — and that’s a good thing — but be prepared to wear masks and social distance if the shopkeepers make that request. And while Antique Weeks technically run from mid-October through the end of the month, each individual vendor keeps its own dates. Check our handy guide for the details and call ahead before charting your course.
Our advice is to wear comfy shoes, stay hydrated, bring cash and shop local. Keep a list of what you’re looking for and bring along a tape measure to make sure it will fit in your space. And if you see something that you absolutely, positively love, better buy it on the spot before somebody else grabs it!
