Roundtop Adventures

Roadtrip to Roundtop...the ultimate Girls Trip!!

So this was my first time to Roundtop.  I had heard so much about it and was really excited to check it out.  My cousin (I call her my sister) went with me and we had such a blast.  Pulling into Warrenton was an experience...we were like kids in a candy store!  Shop after shop of incredible antiques and vintage goodies!!  It was like a subculture of people who love all the same things I do.  It was huge but seemed small because so many people knew each other.
We got to see a lot of great booths...

First the amazing CLUTTER...It was set up as a cute little house

Then onto Junk Gypsies...all we kept hearing about was the amazing PROM...unfortunately we were pooped after a long day of browsing so we passed out before prom =(

The best part of the trip....meeting the AMAZING Rachel Ashwell!!!!
It was a total surprise...I had no idea she would be there.  I would have done my hair =)
She asked about House of Hargrove...It was incredible!

Lastly we discovered Jill Suzanne.  Such a great booth and a wonderful, friendly, inspiring woman!
Her booth was my favorite.  Such attention to detail and we smelled her booth before we even saw it.  She has these amazing candles (her signature scent is Creme Brulee) and they just filled the air!
Check out her website here

Thank you Jill for your amazing hospitality!!

Funny booth we happened upon...

Loved this idea...

All in all we had an amazing time and I am so glad I went.  For me it is more of a "get idea" trip.
The prices were a little higher than I like to pay. 
House of Hargrove = amazing pieces, incredible prices...
The goodies at Roundtop fit the first part, not the second part.

Had a blast and nothing better than a girls trip!
