The Original Round Top Antiques Fair

On Saturday morning, we attended The Original Round Top Antiques Fair. Their 50th Anniversary is a huge deal here in Round Top and is a history earned through their consistent reputation for unsurpassed quality and unusual, one-of-a-kind antiques. They offer three shows each year: the world-renowned Spring and Fall Antiques Fairs, in their venues, and the newer Winter Antiques Show, in the Big Red Barn. When we stepped through the door in the Big Red Barn, we certainly experienced one of the Best Antique Shows in the nation.

And, just like we were in Junk Gypsy, we knew there was no way we could see all there is to see in one trip. Overwhelming, to say the least! But oh what beautiful old antiques they had on display. We took a few items home (but don’t tell our husbands).

Of course, what road trip would be complete without a fabulous ride? We had a wonderful time driving the 2018 Chevy Equinox! It had all of the bells and whistles for sure. And, naturally, what Hill Country trip would be complete without a photo in the bluebonnets? Yeah, we did.

Just for your curiosity, please check out these Chevy Equinox features:

  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi availability: This feature allows you to stay connected on the road, Skype or video chat, stay on top of work if needed, and stream movies, etc. from the road.

  • OnStar Technology: OnStar offers Turn-by-Turn Directions with the touch of a button and simply telling an Advisor where you want to go. Directions can also be sent to your in-vehicle navigation system by asking the Advisor to download directions to your vehicle.

  • Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto: Apple CarPlay takes the iPhone features you’d want to access while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display- so you can make calls, send/ receive messages and listen to your favorite playlists right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Android Auto is built on Google Maps giving you the ability to talk to Google and use several different apps straight from your cars display screen
  • 360 Surround Vision Camera: Surround Vision, a technology that provides a literal look at the vehicle’s perimeter. This available system uses strategically located cameras on all sides of the vehicle to provide a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the vehicle, helping drivers quickly view the surrounding area at a glance.
  • myChevrolet Mobile App: The myChevrolet app turns your mobile device into a command center for your vehicle.
