Well, this is a shameless commercial follow-up to the Red Hen’s post on thinking about houses, homes and decorating.  Got the itch to see vintage and antique in person?  The Red Hen will be showing at the Original Round Top Antique Fair BIG RED BARN Winter Show – Friday and Saturday, January 18 & 19, 2012.  For those who have never shopped this show, it is a beautiful show with many of the same quality dealers who show at the big Round Top shows in April and October. A great mid-winter break for the eyes and great inspiration!  And, while she will be there with her books, ephemera, textiles and assorted small goodies–she will also be SHOPPING for herself!  She can’t wait!  You did read correctly, the show is Friday and Saturday and will not be open on Sunday.  Check out the website: http://www.roundtoptexasantiques.com/

And, it is not too early to put the February ANTIQUE ELEGANCE show on your calendar.  That show will take place in Richardson, Texas (Dallas) on Saturday and Sunday, February 16 & 17, 2013.  Check out the website and photos posted:  http://antiqueeleganceshow.com/   The Red Hen will show here also, and…she will shop! This is a spectacularly beautiful show with great food on site!

Both of these shows are easy to access even from parts outside of Texas.  The airports at Houston, Austin and College Station are easy drives to Round Top.  There are major chain hotels and also charming Bed & Breakfasts in all the towns around the show.  And, while the Red Hen is not into weather predictions, one can be certain that Texas is much warmer than many other parts north!  The Dallas show has very easy access to the Dallas Love Field airport, as well as the DFW airport.  And, there are many hotels within a few miles of the Richardson Civic Center.  Give yourself a mid-winter treat and “come on down”!
