Spring in Texas means bluebonnets, barbecue and the Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top. After a long winter, Americans are ready to hit the tents and early Texas buildings that shelter the 400 dealer mega-show, halfway between Houston and Austin on April 1-5, 2008.
On Tuesday April 1, the Early Buying day opens at 10 am with a tribute to Country Living magazine, celebrating its 30th anniversary. Country Living, the largest selling shelter magazine on newsstands today, is the definitive guide to country style. A giant anniversary card from Marburger dealers and shoppers will give readers a way to say thank you to the magazine. The editors will also be on hand to greet shoppers, sign books, and share decorating tips and ideas.
The Marburger Farm Antique Show starts Tuesday April 1. Admission is $10 at 2pm that day and is good all week. Early Buying begins earlier on April 1 at 10am for $25. The show continues Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday, April 5, from 9 am to 4 pm. The gates open daily at 8 am for breakfast and free parking.
