A First-Timer's Guide to the Roundtop Texas Antiques Event

Welcome to the Roundtop Texas Antiques Event, a three-week extravaganza for antique enthusiasts! To ensure you have an enjoyable experience, follow this guide on where to park, how to dress, and where to eat and stay.

**1. Parking:**

Parking can get busy, so plan ahead:

-**Parking Fees range from Free to $10

- **Early Arrival:** Arrive early in the day to secure a convenient parking spot.

- **Handicapped Parking:** There are designated spaces for handicapped visitors; display your placard.

**2. Dress for Success:**

The event takes place in various weather conditions, so dress accordingly:

- **Comfortable Footwear:** Wear comfortable shoes for walking on uneven terrain. I always carry a change of shoes for when the feet and legs start to complain...a change of footwear and an adult beverage will keep you going for hours...🚶‍♀️

- **Weather-Appropriate Clothing:** Check the weather forecast and dress in layers. It can be hot during the day and cooler in the evenings. During the Fall the weather can change on a prepared! 🥶🌨😓

- **Sun Protection:** Don't forget sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat for sun protection.

- **Rain Gear:** Be prepared for the occasional rain shower with a compact umbrella or raincoat.

**3. Where to Eat:**

Satisfy your taste buds with local cuisine:

- **Food Vendors:** The event usually features food vendors offering delicious Texas fare. Try the barbecue and Tex-Mex options.

- **Local Restaurants:** Explore nearby towns like Round Top, Schulenberg and Carmine for charming restaurants serving southern cuisine.

- **Pack a Picnic:** Consider packing a picnic lunch to enjoy on the event grounds. In Texas we call it tailgating and its not just for football games.

-** Pack an ice chest filled with water and your favorite adult beverage. 🍹

**4. Where to Stay:**

For a relaxing visit, choose the right accommodation:

- **Camping:** You will find the best camping option at the Lone Star Glamping Inn. An indoor glamping experience in the heart of the action.

- **Hotels:** Find hotels and motels in towns like Brenham, and La Grange.

- **Bed and Breakfasts:** Explore cozy B&Bs in the area for a more personalized experience.

- **Rental Homes:** Many property owners offer vacation rentals, which can be a great option for groups.

**5. Event Schedule:**

Check the official event website or brochure for the schedule of special events, late night shopping, live music at the Stone Cellar, the famous Junk Gypsy Prom and Denver Colorados Disco Alley at Zapp Hall.

**6. Shopping Tips:**

- Bring cash, as not all vendors may accept cards and wifi during antiques week can be challenging.

- Negotiate politely; haggling is often part of the experience.

- Measure or bring pictures of spaces you're decorating to ensure items fit.

- Be prepared to find unique, one-of-a-kind items.

-** Bring a wagon or rolling shopping cart...believe me it's a must for the larger open fields!

**7. Hydration and Rest:**

Stay hydrated and take breaks when needed.

**8. Explore Surrounding Areas:**

Don't limit your visit to just the event. Explore the charming small towns, historical sites, and natural beauty in the region.

Remember to have fun, make new friends, and enjoy the treasure hunt at the Roundtop Texas Antiques Event. Happy hunting!
