Last week, I had the pleasure of packing my bags and heading south to Round Top, Texas with several members of our team. Throughout the trip, I captured several photos which I uploaded on Twitter and Instagram @DallasMarket. I have included them on this post and hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Round Top, a charming, small Texas town with a population of no more than 100 people, hosts a biannual antique fair that welcomes thousands of people from every which way! Since we’re a strong supporter of vintage product here at DMC, our leasing team makes the trip to bring the Round Top experience to Dallas for our January and June Markets.

Each spring during antique week, we co-host a bloggers luncheon with our friend Bud Royer at Royers Round Top Café. Our wonderful guest speaker, Carley Seale, owner of Dallas’ The Gypsy Wagon, discussed “Round Top, Texas: Design Inspired by Friendships.” Carley focused on the importance of friendships built in Round Top throughout the years, her unique finds and how they’ve been incorporated into her home, others' homes and at The Gypsy Wagon. It was a perfect representation of what Round Top is truly about!

Also, DMC hosted a party last Monday night at Henkel Hall for the first time. It was wonderful meeting exhibitors from Round Top who also show their product during Market in Dallas, and also meeting new friends! There was a fantastic cowgirl-hippie fashion show from our friends at Rodeo Royalty.

Having never been to the antique fair before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew people ventured to “Round Top” to find true vintage and vintage-inspired product, but it was still so much more than I expected! Round Top and the people there have a true sense of originality and character. The longer I was there and especially after Carley’s presentation, the more I realized that it wasn’t just about the unique items you could find – it was about the history, people and all the stories behind it.
