Round Top Fall 2022 Show Letter

As fall sneaks in bit by bit each day, we begin witnessing the decadent jewel tones of nature and the sanctuary our homes represent.  With this, our excitement grows to share the lush, exceedingly special, and carefully selected pieces which will add harmony, serenity, and happiness to your day.  Round Top will be upon us shortly, and we cannot wait to see you in our usual spot, Booth 380 at the BIG RED BARN at the Original Round Top Antiques Fair.  Show runs October 24 - 29.  Advance tickets are available to purchase at

Whether it is the absolutely amazing early Amish crib quilt, incredibly unique jewelry hand-crafted for a special loved one, or the amassed collection of majolica, each of our pieces was not only selected by us with love for you to enjoy but also created for someone exceedingly special to the original purchaser/creator.  Focused on layering with texture and savory colors but not forgetting the quiet elegance of simplicity, our booth will be a visual feast of the best of the best and the most wonderful pieces we have ever offered.
