Texas Antiques Week 101

October 7, 2022

It’s time, y’all! Time for the bi-annual migration of junkers to the fields of Round Top, Texas! They come from near and far for the greatest flea market in all the land. It’s our favorite time of year … there’s a crispness in the air, tents are going up, trailers are moving in and very soon the fields with be alive with the sound of junk!

For those that have never been, it can be a bit overwhelming … but never fear, we’re flea market aficionados over here and we are here to help!

We’ve spent weeks (seriously, more like months ;)) redecorating and stocking the entire JG World HQ with tons of curated goods, old and new and we can’t wait for y’all to come see! From our fave vintage flea market finds to our hand picked new curated goods, we hope you love everything (we added a gourmet foods section!). Keep reading for all the fun stuff happening…

We’re excited to welcome our good friend, Melissa Newbould, here with her Local Roots Food Truck. She’ll be here every day so y’all come get the good grub … chicken salad, bacon pimento cheese, casseroles, salads, and more! And seriously, her deviled eggs will make think you’ve died and gone to deviled egg heaven!

her truck is SERIOUSLY the coolest thing you’ve ever seen!
come to mama!

As always, we’re honored to host amazing singer/songwriters on our front porch as part of the Front Porch Series .. we’ll be announcing the lineup next week!

Our traditional texas antiques week souvenir tee is here! It speaks to the theme at the front of our store this fall ’22 … we like to call it dark academia meets rebel poet. We combined vintage angels with piles and piles of books surrounded by moths that remind us of old academic insect identification charts. Hope you love this one as much as we do! Click HERE to shop the ginger! And HERE to shop the charcoal!

Last Spring we officially moved Junk-O-Rama Prom to the JG World HQ and it was MAGICAL. This Fall, we’ve combined our two favorite things .. prom and Practical Magic for a Practical Magic Prom! Click HERE to see pics from our Practical Magic party a few years back. If you purchased a prom ticket, we’ll be sending out more info so keep an eye on that inbox! Tickets sold out quick so if you didn’t get one, stay tuned … we’ll be doing some fun giveaways over the next few days!

For this Fall, the amazing artist Morgan Avary created a limited edition poster to commemorate the event:

Tuesday, October 25th we’ll be hosting an After Hours here at the JG store and an Open House of Thelma’s Garage! If you’ve seen the pics, you know it’s AMAZING … come see it in person! Local Roots will be serving up Trailer Park Tacos and there will be live music by Isaac Jacob.

Check out some of our old blogs for tips and tricks of Texas Antiques Week … and be sure you pick up any of the local publications for more info regarding individual venues. Our friend, Tikaa created a super handy old school fold-n-go type map that we highly recommend you snag! You can find those here at the JG store … they’re FREE!
