Old Glory TEXAS Opens TODAY!

Today's the day! Starting today, Old Glory TEXAS will be open year-round in Round Top, Thursday though Sunday every week.

To celebrate the occasion, we wanted to share with you a look at our Texas store through the eyes of our friend Theresa of Walker 1791 Salvage & Design. Theresa visited us during Antiques Week in September and captured our Old Glory Texas style. Thank you, Theresa, for sharing your beautiful photographs with us! We are so happy to such supportive and talented friends, and we always look forward to seeing Theresa's friendly face!

8 Feeds Inspiring Us Lately

Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 15.24.06.png

It's been a while since our last Instagram Roundup, but we haven't stopped using Instagram as a daily source of life advice, dog photos, and maybe even some pumpkin spice latte photos. But most importantly, it's one of the best sources for design inspiration and ideas. Here are eight feeds that are inspiring us lately!

Curious Details + Old Glory TEXAS

One of our favorite parts about coming to Texas is the creative community we’ve become a part of, full of warm, supportive, and inspiring artists and entrepreneurs. Top among those who we are happy to call our friend is Becki Griffin of Curious Details. She always so beautifully captures our signature style. Thank you, Becki, you just “getting” us! 

Here are Becki's beautiful photos of Old Glory TEXAS! We are so excited to be open for year-round operations starting next Thursday, October 19th. Visit our TEXAS page for all of the details!

OLD GLORY IS OPEN IN TEXAS!

We are home after a busy but successful trip to Round Top to open Old Glory Texas! After a week of unloading, arranging, rearranging, and designing our brand new building, we opened on Sunday to an enthusiastic crowd! Thank you to our loyal customers and the entire Round Top community for welcoming us with open arms and big smiles. We are so happy to be part of this beautiful neighborhood and in our humble opinion, the best small town in America. 

I want to first say thank you to my amazing Old Glory team for helping me make this happen:

Thank you to Sandy, Genna, and Elaine who came from Denver and helped with the planning, packing, pricing, and so much more behind-the-scenes for months before we opened. And thank you to Debby, who will holding down the fort in Texas and greeting and helping customers year-round in Texas! Thank you to Meloney from Seedbox Antiques for helping us get the store together. She has been part of the Texas team from the beginning helping us build displays and bringing our vision to life!

And finally, thank you to my husband and biggest supporter Brian, who has supported my dream and vision for Old Glory Texas for all these years. We are so proud of what we have built together and can't wait to see what it turns into!

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the week and from our FIRST LOOK opening party. Many more photos to come! And visit our TEXAS page for all the details and for our year-round hours starting October 19th.

FOUND & FAVORITE FOR FALL IN DENVER

Even with all of the excitement and prep work we've been doing for Old Glory Texas, we haven't forgotten about Old Glory Denver! With the new season just around the corner, we have been getting ready for cooler weather and warmer decorating. It's the season for well-worn wooden tables for family gatherings, for old and beautiful but practical cabinets for the home nesting season to come, and for inviting upholstered pieces for making any room welcoming and warm. It might still be in the 80s this week in Denver, but that won't stop us from looking forward to getting our houses ready for falling leaves and yes, even falling snow. 

Here are a few of our favorite new (old) pieces and spots in the store from our latest loads and shopping trips. Come by and see us on South Broadway, Wednesday - Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and let us help you welcome in a new season at home!

A Re-Introduction to Old Glory TEXAS!

From canvas and paint to brick and mortar, our vision has become a reality: Old Glory Style is opening in Round Top! From design to construction, we have been so lucky to work with such creative and hardworking people in Round Top to help make this happen. Check back soon to read all about our friends, partners, and collaborators who have helped us so much in Texas, but special thanks to Holly Mathis and Lewis Tindall for helping us make this happen. 

TEXAS ROOTS

Texas has always had a special place in my heart. It’s a love story that began in 1961, long before I fell in love with the tiny town of Round Top. I lived in Texas as a child and learned all about life and love in this great state. My mother taught me a strong and nurturing love of home—she kept a happy home and always made sure it was functional and still beautiful. My father led by example and taught me to work hard every single day at something worth doing. My older sister taught me to be my own person, always try new things, and think outside the box. And the addition of a baby brother made our life in Texas even brighter.

With each trip to Texas I am flooded with memories and lessons from a Texas childhood. I am so happy and grateful that I have such a strong foundation for a business I love and for what Old Glory has become. Texas is a place where I am inspired, energized, supported, and completely immersed in my craft. My business brought me back to Texas, and I feel like I’ve come home.
 

A NEW ADVENTURE FOR OLD GLORY TEXAS

I loved our dance-hall-turned-shop home in Burton and popping up shop twice a year for Antiques Week, but I am excited about our next chapter: our very own, built-from-scratch Old Glory Texas headquarters right in the heart of Round Top.

When Washington Square Park in Round Top became available for sale last year, I knew it was the perfect spot for Old Glory Texas, a 4,000 square foot blank canvas to make my creative vision for Old Glory Style come alive for Antiques Week and beyond. I can’t wait to be a permanent part of the Round Top community and share Old Glory’s signature mix of authenticity, sophistication, and function with my own unique touch.

I guess you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl—I am so happy to return to my Texas roots and be able to call Texas home again. Here are some photos of our work in progress and behind-the-scenes shots of our big Round Top project!

FIND US THIS FALL IN ROUND TOP

While our store will not be ready for full-time operation until mid-October, we will be hosting an open house during Fall Antiques Week. And we are so excited to have Kim Leggett of City Farmhouse join us during our First Look for a book signing! Her beautiful new book, City Farmhouse Style, came out yesterday and we are so happy to have her there to sign copies and to help us celebrate our new store.  

If you are in or around Round Top, stop by and say hello! We will also be open MONDAY, September 25, from 10 am – 5 pm. You can read all about our adventures in Texas and all of the details for fall and winter plans here!
