Some of my Round Top finds

Everyone keeps asking us what we bought at Round Top.
It all seems to be a blur to me right now...

The Tahoe was full by the end of first day shopping at Round Top. We located a trailer to rent, and went on our merry way of fine junk hunting.
We made it home a few days later only to realize we couldn't unload it in the garage like we normally do because our house is on the market. Fortunately we have a storage unit we rented for the "de-cluttering" you have to go through to get a house ready to put it up for sale. We seem to be filling it up at a quick pace.

We brought home some neat tables, carts, baskets and whatever we thought would make the look we have in mind. These are only pictures of the larger items.
We had some plastic bins full of smalls.

The giant springs are actually from an industrial vacuum system.

Mr. Ella is sweeping out the trailer at the end of a tiring day. He had to catch a plane to Midland a couple of hours later. I am sure he was exhausted.

I seem to have a weakness for anything round.

See what I mean?

Oh, wow! What a cool load of stuff! I can tell how much fun you had getting it just by looking at the pictures. Yep, I'd have wanted it all, too.

I have never been to Roundtop or any of the area markets...but it is on my "bucket list." It looks as if it would be just overwhelming...any tips on how to shop there? Thanks for sharing. Industrial antiques are so hot right now...tiff
