The Compound at the Spring Antiques Week in Round Top Texas was so fun to explore! There were so many booths and barns to take in. The dealers at The Compound Round Top TX were so nice and willing to answer any questions while I was there last week. After seeing a lot of posts in the past on Instagram from The Compound it made me want to find it and check it out!
The French Corner Decor was just lovely, as was one of the owners Armand, at The Compound. What beautiful European antiques and French linens! I was limited with what I could bring home in my suitcase, but I will be feeling very sophisticated when I am using my new kitchen towels!! I wasn’t able to meet the other owner Yves, but he was set up at Marburger Farm.

The Compound expands as you walk through the first building! So many dealers, live music, barn after barn, and places to grab a bite. Just perfect with a shady, relaxing atmosphere! The dealers really just let you explore in their booths. There is absolutely no pressure to purchase a thing. Which makes it more fun to dilly dally along taking in the landscaped grounds, fountains, and relaxing under the live oaks or the big tent. Delve into fine European and American antiques; furniture, fixtures, decorative arts, lighting, antique garden and architectural remnants, Mid-century Modern, antique weapons, estate jewelry, silver and so much more……..
The Compound is a whopping 57 acres and located just down the street from Marburger Farm. Very convenient to take in both locations and sit for a spell at each!
If you need a nice place to stay, Hampton Inn & Suites in Bastrop is a wonderful hotel to collapse in at night! It’s a 40 minute drive from Round Top, but the drive is easy and passes quickly. The staff is warm and inviting. Housekeeping keeps everything spotless. Misty does a great job at the front desk. Jennifer works super hard in the Dining Room with a great breakfast in the mornings. Some gluten free options and a Smoothie Bar coming in July 2019! If you mention my blog when you make your reservation, you will receive a 10% discount. Accommodations are a little less expensive when you are not staying super close to Round Top.
A few extra beautiful photo ops as I was heading out of town…..
From the children’s song All Things Bright and Beautiful…..
The tall trees in the greenwood, The meadows where we play…..
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.
Deep in the Heart of Texas,
