How fun! Be sure to take lots of pics for those of us who will be many miles away drooling at your antiquing adventures.


Nice! That one is my to do list too.

My Shabby Roses

YeeHaw is right! I hope you're renting a very large vehicle for your drive home (o:
It sounds like you'll have a lot of fun.


I am beyond jealous. Thi will be a trip that Hanna, Maddie & I take someday. Mark my word.


chris mckinley

Have a great time! Like many junkers, this is on my list too!


Gina @ VintageJunkinMyTrunk

That sounds like a dream vacation to me! I will be stalking you ladies online waiting for photos and stories!

Ethel, you are a hoot AND a swell lady! Can't wait to get started on our biggest junkin' adventure yet! YEEEHAW!!

Sheryl Remy

What a great trip. Glad you are leaving room in your luggage for the "necessities". Like everyone else, I want to go too. Have a great time.


OK.....I'M jealous this time!
What an ultimate trip to take with a friend!!! I might have to start a bucket list now :-)


The two of you will have sooooo much fun!! I would love to be a bird on your shoulder. Stories and pictures are anticipated.


I just commented to Amy that you two need to make sure those cameras are charged up because you have a whole posse out here in blogland who can't wait to hear all about it!

Janet Johnson

You need to rent a U-Haul and drive home then you will have prenty of room for all the treasures you're going to find!!! Shop til you drop. Hope you have just the best time ever.


Be prepared to park and walk. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a flea market cart. Start taking translation classes now. You may never see or meet nicer folks. Another piece of my heart lives there...having grown up there too. For heavens sake enjoy every moment.

Maureen Kuppe

Awesome! Color me green with envy... I guess I shall have to experience it vicariously through you as I doubt I'll ever get there myself! So make sure you take lots of pics please!


Oh my goodness! I am soooo jealous!
Can't you just have the plane stop in Ca. to pick me up on the way???

Oh Laurie, you two are gonna have an epic time! After Round Top, what could possibly be next?!

Just remember the Texan motto...."Go Big or Go Home!"


Laurie, I can't imagine there being vintage anymore wonderful than right where you live, but a show that goes on for two weeks has to have something to haul back home. I can't wait to see what you find!
Wow! What a great Estate Sale you recently went to. The chenille animals remind me of the ones you took to the Roadshow. Very cool!
My order arrived today, absolutely darling, every single creation. Thank you so much for the little bunny ornament. So cute! 29 Days and Counting! Elizabeth

As a resident of Texas and having been to Round Top (only) once (but hope to go lots more times), in addition to the advice given above, don't forget to wear sunscreen, layer clothing (it may be chillish in the mornings, but will warm up after lunch), and pace yourselves. You cannot possibly see everything, so just take your time and enjoy! You will have a blast.

Shelley Germann

I told Amy you need to Twitter so all of us can be with you along the way! Very exciting!


You lucky girls!! I was actually going to go this year, only about a 10 hour drive from me, my mom and I had it all planned. That was until I realized that it is mom's weekend at University of Arkansas that weekend and I can't miss that! My baby would be crushed! (Ok, let's be honest, I would be crushed, he would probably be just fine). Oh well, I will go vicariously through you two. Cannot wait to see the posts that follow that trip!!

Been to Round Top a couple of times. My advice is to skip the actual Round Top show (overpriced) and head to the fields in Warrenton - this is actually what everyone means when they say "Round Top." You could spend days trolling the fields, looking for treasures, making deals. You will love it! Hope you have great weather, and enjoy TX! If you're able to also get up to the Canton Trade Days, I highly recommend it - much better prices than anything in Round Top.


Can't wait to meet you both. We'll be hooting & hollering and arm-wrestling over our treasures!!!!

The last 2 times I've gone, I've bought suitcases while in TX.

Kim Campbell

I live in Austin. You are going to have a blast!!!
