Warrenton, Round Top, Marburger Farm 2010 Day 3

Words that come to mind to describe Marburger Farms Antique Show....Amazing, Creative, Over the Top, Inspiring.....Overwhelming....
Imaging 15 or 20 Giant Tents and Buildings full of the Best of the Best collectors and designers. We had always heard the prices were "Sky High" (a friend asked us if we were going to "pet" the items at Marburger, cuz we wouldn't be able to take them home). We didn't find that at all. Though they might have been too expensive for us to buy and resell in our shop, I think the average person could find some wonderful and unique pieces at fair prices....

Of course the displays are wonderful.....
Again, our friend TOT, (The Other Theresa) of Time Worn Interiors....Her booth was fabulous..
Linda and Ludmil from Willows Nest..... Love these wicker wedding baskets updated with decoupaged patterns......
Of course, the show stopper is always Magnolia Pearl by Robin Brown selling vintage style clothing, purses, and decor
This is the concept layer upon layer of gause and ruffles and try not to look too much like a pirate...

Women really get caught up in the mania, and I often wonder if they get home and say "What did I do"?Don't get me wrong... I think Robin is fabulously talented designer and I would love to have her free spirit, and maybe even ONE of her pieces......
Also from her booth...

Other interesting items and displays that caught our eye....

Fun to see friends from Tattered Bliss!
Love this huge cello case as a coffee table!

Several trends we have notices.....lots of industrial...how do you like this conveyor belt made into a sofa table...........?And lamps made out of EVERYTHING...........


Really....EVERYTHING....If it couldn't run away...they were making a lamp out of it!
We had a great time!! The truck was full and we were happy campers...!Stay tuned for sneak peeks of what WE bought and what it will turn into to brighten up your Spring!
Saturday Sale is less than 2 weeks away! Mark you calendar....April 17th

  1. What great pics!
    I met y'all at the blog party, but I'm ashamed that I didn't know about your fabulous blog until Adrienne introduced me to y'all.

    Now that I've found you, I'll surely be back....often!

    All the best,
    Anne

  2. Hi Val. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures with us poor unfortunate junkers that couldn't be there. Will you be there in the Fall? Steve and I always hit the Fall shows so maybe we'll finally see each other in person. =)

    Blessings... Polly

  3. Hey there!

    I just wanted to stop by and say how great it was to meet y'all at the blog party!

    I love all the pics of Marburger! I haven't been able to go to that show yet, but I am hoping to in the Fall.

    I am still asking my hubby about Paris and he's still asking about Italy! LOL! Let us know if y'all do decide to have a couples trip. We would be on board!

    Take care,
    Adrienne
