Still on the topic of road trips today....One road trip in particular has me hoping some of you can shed some much needed light on, is the Round Top Antiques Show, and or the Marburger Antique Show in Round Top Texas. (Are they one in the same, or are they two different shows?) I've always heard Round Top and Marburger are the big ones. The ones that started them all. The grand-mommy's of vintage shows. The grand Poobah's...am I right? (Again, are they two separate shows, or is Marberger at the Roundtop Antique Show?)
I need to know.
Some (but not all) of the burning questions are:
It looks like it happens twice a year- in late March and at the end of September. Is one better than the other, or are they pretty much both equally amazing? I've read that "They span over a fifteen-day period with approx. 60 shows on an eleven-mile stretch of Hwy 237 in Round Top with smaller shows in neighboring towns."
Are the other shows going on in neighboring towns at the same time a must-see as well? I saw them being listed as "Antique Weekend", or are those shows totally separate? Are those other shows a "Must See?" too?
How many actual days are needed to shop Round Top?
I'd love to hear any and all input from those of you who have attended these events!
