A few months ago, we decided to try our hand at selling at an antique show. We decided on the Original Round Top Antique Show (the Big Red Barn) near Round Top Texas. The show is part of the two weeks of the biannual Antiques Week of Texas located between Houston and Austin along State Highway 237. Approximately 60 shows occur during both the spring and the fall each year. Last year, we attended the fall Antique Week as a buyer, but this year, we experienced the other side, as dealers.
As first-time dealers, we jumped right into one of the major antique shows in America and had a positive outcome. We rented a small booth in a huge circus tent and set up shop for four days. People from all over the country visited our show and we sold items to customers from as far away as New York and California.
Take a look at our photos from the start to finish of our dealer week at the Big Red Barn.
