In honor of Round Top Antiques Week starting next week, I'm sharing my favorite part about the Round Top adventure: the shopping! I have loved antiques and antique shopping for as long as I can remember, and for as long as my kids can remember too. Family road trips to Oklahoma always turned into mini-hunting trips with detours to every antique mall we found along I-70, despite my two sons' best efforts to distract me from seeing the tempting call of "antiques this way" on passing billboards. I love the thrill of the hunt, and that is what made me fall in love with Round Top on my very first visit. Now I've been shopping there for over six years and I am so happy that I discovered the great vendors and one-of-a-kind finds that this amazing town and legendary antique show has to offer. 

And between those family-road-trips-turned-shopping-hauls twenty years ago to now, I've mastered the art of making the most out of every trip to Texas, from the minute we leave home in Denver to when we arrive at our home away from home in Texas.

Here are a few of my favorite finds from all my Round Top trips, and the great places where I found them. Think of it as part informal guide to Antique Weeks shopping, part tour of Old Glory at home. I can't wait to be back to the thrill of the hunt next week! For all the details about Old Glory's Spring Antiques Week hours and special events (including a book signing with Rachel Ashwell!), read our last blog post here

And here's a quiet picture of my home, before we leave for the happy chaos of Antiques Week. I can't wait to get back to Round Top and get Old Glory Texas ready for a great two weeks of shopping and to share the thrill of the hunt with our customers, old and new! Happy shopping!


Behind the Scenes Spring Antiques Week Prep

And so it begins...Antiques Week in Round Top is exactly two weeks away! It's hard work and long hours getting ready for the big shopping event, but hard work and long hours that we absolutely love. From coordinating loads and containers from Nebraska, Iowa, Europe, California, and of course Denver, to the logistics of getting everything to Round Top...such a beautiful mess!


Here are a few behind-the-scenes photos of our preparations and loads and process to get Round-Top-ready. We can't wait to share everything we've been working on in just two short weeks when Spring Antiques Week kicks off. 


Here's a reminder of our Antiques Week hours! If you're in Round Top, come by and say hello, shop, and help us celebrate the adventure and excitement that is Antiques Week.

Spring Antiques Week 2018

It's March! Spring is just around the corner, but more importantly, so is Spring Antiques Week in Round Top! There's nothing quite like the way Round Top, a town of just under 100 people, comes alive for every show and swells with huge crowds, amazing vendors, and the best shopping in the world (in our opinion). We are so happy to be a part of the big show again this year, now in our new Texas store right in the heart of town. Read on for all the info about Spring Antiques Week!

The Story Behind Our Favorite Weekend

Happy Customer Appreciation Weekend at Old Glory! This weekend is one of our favorites all year, our chance to thank our wonderful customers for all of their enthusiasm and support for so many years! This is our 11th annual Customer Appreciation Sale, and we love it more each year as we continue to grow relationships and friendships with our customers, both old and new, and continue to realize how lucky and thankful we are to do what we do. 

Beyond the excitement of a sale and great deals in both our Denver and our Round Top stores, there is also a rich tradition and personal story behind the sale. We bought Old Glory eleven years ago, and before that, we were customers of Old Glory ourselves, visiting the store in Conifer as often as we could and shopping the beautiful store. The original owner, Cindy, always had a sale during the month of February to get her shop ready for new items to come in the spring. My birthday is also in February, so every year my husband would take a day off work and we would take a day trip and scenic drive up 285 to Conifer to shop the sale. It's one of my favorite personal traditions that I love being able to pass onto my customers now as the owner of Old Glory. 


This year especially is exciting for us, because we have an opportunity to show our appreciation to a whole new group of customers with our new store now open in Round Top, Texas! Come in to either store this weekend and say hi, enjoy 15% off storewide, and celebrate our favorite weekend with us! 




Old Glory Texas // Round Top Winter Show Recap

Happy (a little belated) new year from Old Glory! It's been a busy start to the year as we cook up big plans for 2018 and beyond, and we are so excited to share them with you soon. 

Our first big event was the Winter Show in Round Top, our second show in our new Old Glory Texas store. The town swelled in population with shoppers and antique lovers for this annual Winter Show, an event that boasts the same great shopping and one-of-a-kind vendors as Spring & Fall Antiques Week but with cooler weather and a slightly smaller crowd that makes shopping--and parking--a little easier. We are so excited to continue to grow Old Glory Texas this year thanks to our wonderful customers and to the enthusiasm and support from our new home-away-from-home hometown.

Here are a few photos from Old Glory Texas! Thank you to Becki Griffin (Curious Details) for coming to shop and for the great photos! Stay tuned for more updates and exciting news from both Old Glory Denver and Old Glory Texas. Here's to a great 2018! 

'Tis the Season for Etsy!

Screen Shot 2017-12-13 at 12.13.37.png

We love this time of year for a lot of reasons (snow, boots and sweaters, and decorating with christmas trees to name a few). But maybe our favorite reason of all: it’s nesting and shop-for-the-home season! We love refreshing the store for the changing seasons and getting our houses ready for sticking out the cold with a beautiful home. 

When we aren’t shopping at our own store and from our neighbors on Broadway and in Round Top (and yes, maybe the occasional mall and Target trip), we love browsing Etsy for the variety and the thrill of the hunt, all from the comfort of home. Whether it's bigger antique finds, witty letterpress greeting cards, smaller hard-to-find vintage items, and anything and everything in between, Etsy really does have it all and we can get lost for hours shopping for gifts and for our own homes. Here are a few of the shops inspiring us lately!
