For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it all started with the Round Top Antique show, and has grown to encompass more than 30 miles worth of shows along Hwy 237 from Burton to Round Top to Warrenton. LaBahia has always had a reputation for having quality, and sometimes unusual, antiques. Many collectors say that they find some of the best deals there, too. It is where the "Flow Blue Brothers" set up. You would not believe their amazing collection of Flow Blue. It also has, argueably, the best food. They serve both breakfast and lunch. Indoor restrooms and free parking also make it a popular stop.We will be located directly east across the parking lot from the concession entry into the old LaBahia hall. We hope many of you will be able to come visit us! Please Note: THE COTTAGE WILL BE CLOSED September 24th through October 5th. We will open again on October 6th - - hopefully with some wonderful new finds!

It is just the perfect, petite piece for a small cottage or apartment. I would love to see this in a bathroom with towels rolled up and soaps, lotions etc all stacked in it. Wouldn't some soaps in apothecary jars look great?
Here are a few pics of the cottage on Saturday at our show:
We were a little limited with what to do with our outdoor pieces because there was a chance of rain during the afternoon... we were hesitant to put things out. Well, the sun kept shining so we were optimistic and put things out on the lawn, put a tarp on everything and went home. The most horrible storm blew through about 8 pm. Rain, wind, lightning and someone said hail but we never saw hail where we were. The cottage fared well. We had a little incident with a tarp and about 500 gallons of water....uuummm, yeah, just picture that. It all worked out in the wash, so to speak and we were on for Saturday.
This last picture is of our outdoor room. We transformed it into the "French Market". It was sooo cute with our market finds in there.
Our next adventure will be the Round Top/Warrenton Antiques Show. We leave at the end of September. We are looking forward to a great week. For now, come by the cottage and pick up some fall decor for your home, yes the weather is going to be cooler, right??? Hopefully!!!!
