Round Top

The Big Red Barn

Monday, March 27th - Saturday, April 1st, 2023

What?  I am delighted to be returning to the Lone Star State, where I will be exhibiting at the 
Round Top Antiques Fair in The Big Red Barn.

Round Top is a huge event with many exhibitors, in many ways similar to Brimfield, Massachusetts, 
with a string of shows that begin and end, overlapping one-another for a 2-3 week period.  There are 66 shows in total.

The Big Red Barn is the original show, is indoors, primarily focused on Americana, with an 
attached annex and a nearby high-end style tent with continental dealers, some of whom I have 
exhibited with at the best shows in America.

When:  The show begins Monday morning, March 27th, with an early buyers (VIP) entry available 
from 9 AM - 1 PM for $25.  Regular admission that day ($10) begins at 1 pm and the show closes at 6 pm.
    Tuesday - Friday Hours:  9 am - 5 pm
    Saturday hours (closing day): 9 am - 4 pm  
    One ticket is good for all 6 days of the show.

Where:  The Big Red Barn Event Center, 475 Texas 237, Round Top, TX  78954

What Else Do I Need to Know?

I suggest you come into Round Top from Burton, heading Southwest on Rt. 237.  If you do so, the 
Big Red Barn is the first show you will come to and you will avoid traffic all-together.  Traffic can be 
extremely slow in this small town if you plan to come up Rt. 237 heading Northeast from LaGrange.  
You can come this way, but be sure to allow a good deal of extra time if you do.

If you would like to see anything in specific from the website or are in search of a flag in a 
particular size / age / price category, give us a call or drop us an email by March 15th at


Philadelphia Antiques Show

Thursday, April 27th - Sunday, April 30th, 2023

For the entirety of my career in the world of antiques I have been inspired by this venerable and auspicious Pennsylvania show. Founded in 1962 and widely recognized as one of the finest in the nation, the event returns this year for the 61st edition, making it the eldest charitable show in America.

Among antiques fairs dedicated to American Antiques specifically, The Philadelphia Antiques Show is, plainly and simply, the best. This is where museum-worthy objects find their way from the best dealers to the homes of top collectors. For this reason I am privileged to be among this strong list of veteran dealers.

The Philadelphia Antiques Show Preview Party takes place on Thursday, April 27th, from 5pm - 9pm.  5 PM entry is $600/person.  6 PM entry is $300.  Young Collectors (under age 40) may enter at 6 PM for a reduced cost of $150.  All preview tickets are good for General Admission throughout the show.

Regular Show Hours ($20 admission):
Friday, April 28th:  11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, April 29t:  11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday, April 30th:  11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission Price: $20 ($18 for seniors), $16 for PMA Members, and a guided show tour is available at $25. Call me at (717) 676-0545 if you would like to receive comp tickets for general admission.

Location:  The show will be held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, located at 2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA  19130.
