Special 1st-Ever Group Antiques Tour to Round Top Texas Flea Market - Round Top Texas

Special 1st-Ever Group Antiques Tour to Round Top Texas Flea Market

Are you an Antiques Diva, a junkie for junk or a flea market queen? If you love vintage and antiques like we do, then you must join us next spring at the mecca of all antique shows in Round Top, Texas. This isn’t one antique show, its many shows which converge in one small town over the span of two weeks covering 20 miles or more. (Design junkies know Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper have made two phrases famous: shiplap and Round Top!)  

Round Top Tour | Antiques Diva

Antiques Diva Champagne Tour of Arbor Antiques, Round Top Show

 

Our group antiques tour to Round Top from April 2-7, 2018, is 4 days and 5 nights of finger-licking bbq, antiques and vintage as far as the eye can see and further, country music, Texas bluebonnets and seriously good wine. At the biggest antique show in the world you’ll discover gems from Belgium, France and Holland as well as mamma’s attic down the road. There is something for all price points plus we’ll help you negotiate and ship it all home. And the location in Texas Hill Country is gorgeous. Every dealer and shop owner who is serious shops here – so why haven’t you been yet?  You were waiting to come with The Antiques Diva & Co, weren’t you!?

Oklahoma Diva Toma Clark HainesToma Clark Haines, CEO of The Antiques Diva® & Co, has teamed up with Doni Belau from Girls’ Guide to Paris (a French Doni Belau, founder of Girls' Guide to Parisantique dealer who exhibits at Round Top), and they will be your guides for the week. Rancho Pillow, the absolute coolest and funkiest place to stay, will be your home during our sojourn. If you don’t have a good time on this trip and score some serious finds then frankly… we simply can’t help you!

Tour Itinerary 

April 2nd, Monday

We’ll kick off our time together with a welcome meal at a local steakhouse and some bubbly in this Getting To Know You event!

April 3rd Tuesday

Breakfast at Rancho Pillow and then we’re off to do the Original Round Top Tour, followed by an afternoon visit to one of the local Czech communities. In the evening we’ll hang out and relax back at Rancho Pillow. Those who need to unwind can take a yoga class or have a massage to work out the stress of all that hardcore shopping – Diva-style! Dinner is on your own.

Tues April 4th

Following breakfast, we’ll head for a behind-the-scenes tour of Excess I & II followed by a picnic lunch. That afternoon we’ll shop The Compound with one of the dealers getting the inside scoop on how the dealers score the best deals. Naturally, the day will end with cocktail & nibbles in Diva Guide Doni Belau’s booth she shares with Diva Guide Margaret Schwartz. Dinner reservations confirmed this evening as a group.

Wed April 5th

Today we’ll shop til we drop with Arbors Antiques with owner Curtis Ann Davies – one of the most beloved of all the show owners. Dealers in Round Top fight for space to display at her fair simply because she’s so darn nice. Some of our favorite Antiques Diva clients are selling on this field and we’ll make sure to high light friends and friends. After lunch we’ll enjoy an afternoon walk and photo safari among the wildflowers before heading back to the ranch for a Private Chef Dinner with Rancho Pillow! Bone Appetit! (I suspect in Texas longhorn country meat may be on the menu!)

Special Event with Lolo French Antiques et More:

Special Event with Pandora de Balthazár:
Join European linen dealer and sleep expert Pandora de Balthazár to learn how to get better sleep and how it will improve your overall health. We’ll get in bed and drink champagne to learn why a good night’s sleep isn’t a luxury, it’s an essential to maintaining a #DivaLifestyle.

 

Thurs April 6th

For the last day of your Diva Extravaganza we’re heading to Warrenton and Zapp Hall. We’re still awaiting the dates for the Junk Gypsy Prom – but we’re hoping the gods align our fates so we can be the belles of the ball. Either way tonight will be about kicking up our heels (and by heels I mean cowboy boots, not stilettos) and listening to some down-home country music whilst eating BBQ. Those who want to trade the champagne bottle for beer will have that option.

Friday April 7th

Depart

Join Toma Clark Haines:
Hamptons Antiques & Design Tour 

Join Toma Clark Haines The Antiques Diva for a Hamptons Antiques and Design Group TourJust outside of the Big Apple, the infamous “Hamptons” are towns that were settled as early as the 1600s, and dotting the eastern coast of Long Island while boasting a cornucopia of beautiful, Dutch-inspired architecture, farmland and gorgeous beaches. Today, the Hamptons remains a popular weekend retreat for the rich and famous chock-filled with art, design and cultural hot spots. This is not your average sleepy beach destination, instead the Hamptons offers daily gallery openings, museum visits, concerts, educational and industry leader speaking events, theater productions, art cooperatives and many antique shows and festivals, shops and estate sales. The Hamptons has been associated with the lifestyles of the wealthiest families in the United States, and the area draws cutting edge artists and designers from around the world… And thus local inventory to has to cater to their needs. This combination has encouraged the production of beautiful art and design. Sometimes the best-kept secrets are where you least expect them… There are many hidden sources in the Hamptons. The antique trade has cropped up throughout all the major towns with some of the finest small boutiques, barn sales and estate auctions available.
