For those of you less- fortunates who are not from Texas, let me start by explaining that Round Top is a sprawling antiques show that pops up in a large empty field (40 acres or so) several times a year between Houston and Austin. Lots of vendors, lots of food, lots of treasures, lots of junk, lots of fun.
Here in France there is a similar event twice a year in a big empty field in the small town of Chatou, just outside Paris. The event used to be held in Paris, but got too big and had to move to the country. The ham thing, you ask? I’m not sure, but it has something to do with the days when pigs used to run free in the streets of Paris. I didn’t see any live pigs here, but plenty of pork was being served.
I had such a good time there last spring, I made sure not to miss the fall feature.
Such a fun day. As usual, I didn’t buy much, but I loved every minute of it.
And Mark loved it that he didn’t have to go with me.
Never stop hunting for treasures, my friends!
