Round Top, TX – – It’s time to shop at Round Top!! The Winter Antiques Show is scheduled for January 16 & 17 at the Big Red Barn Event Center, 475 S. Hwy 237, 5 miles north of Round Top, Texas. The hours are Saturday from 10 – 5 and Sunday from 10 – 4. Admission is $5.00, a shipper will be on site, full concessions and plenty of free parking are offered.
At the Winter Antiques Show, you will be able to find the same quality dealers as in the celebrated Original Round Top Antiques Fairs held each spring and fall. The same high-quality antiques will be available all in one venue with an even larger variety of Continental and American antiques. Many of the Big Red Barn dealers, in addition to dealers from many states and other Round Top venues, set up at this show. This is an excellent opportunity for local shoppers to shop Round Top – – the crowds are not as large as at the Spring and Fall shows, making it easier for shoppers to examine the beautiful and unique antiques brought by dealers from all over the country.
Shoppers can also mark their calendars for the upcoming 42nd Annual Spring Original Round Top Antiques Fair Scheduled for March 31, April 1, 2 & 3, 2010.
