Round Top and Warrenton, Texas = Vintage Fun!

Hi VC fans!  This is VC Junior Designer, Monica, reporting to you all from Round Top, Texas!!  Designer Yvette and I are here searching through thousands of vendors for vintage fabrics and props.  The Texas heat tried to keep us from reaching our goals with highs of 106 and 104 degrees (as the vendors’ thermometers showed!).  However, we trekked on and took only the best of the vintage prints!  We can’t wait to go back to corporate to show Jessica what we’ve found!

Round Top and Warrenton are two neighboring towns between Austin and Houston.  It is very close to Bastrop, TX, where the wild fires took hundreds of homes.  It’s incredibly hot here and Yvette and I were saddened at seeing the cattle eat something unseen, and hopefully green, in the field of dirt.  Though this area looks starved for water, the people and buzz around here reflect nothing but excitement for this week-long extravaganza!  There are SO many vintage items here -- all with their own histories and memories attached.  It’s incredibly inspirational!

If you love all things vintage and experiencing nostalgia, you need to come to one of these events!!

On a happy note, there are little showers and storms going on right now.  Though not much, the area is rejoicing due to the much-needed rain, and the relief from the baking sun.

Enjoy my pictures from the day and catch up with me tomorrow for more fun vintage inspiration!

Spread the VC Love,
