Round Top Antique Weekend 2012

Ladies, clear your calendars because Texas Antique Weekend is here--and I've been in ultimate preparation mode.  Remember those Target Christmas commercials with the crazed woman training for her shopping spree? Now you have a visual--minus the velour track suit. Eww.

Earlier this year at Antique Weekend I procured my beloved bar cart, so I can't wait to see what I'm able to scavenge this time! As part of my bi-annual preparation, I've been making a mental list of items to keep an eye out for. And they are:

"Neon" milk glass --
While my affinity for white (and black, for Halloween) milk glass still rings true, I discovered this chartreuse colored cake stand while in Memphis over the summer.  The price tag was a little too steep for me, so I'm keeping this on my radar while in Round Top with hopes of finding a cheaper version. 

Bookends --
I never tire of kitschy bookends, so I'll certainly be keeping my eyes peeled for some such as these darling antelope ones (extra points for brass!)
And while I already have a pair of these (that I scored for $10, mind you), it never hurts to add to your collection, right? Plus, I think these would make just a darling Christmas gift for the stylish book worm in your life.
Gold + Brass -- 
And per usual, I'm always looking for anything gold and/or brass.  I'm beginning to wonder if I might not be a descendent of Midas.  Everything just looks better gold--even if I have to spray paint it gold myself!

Helpful hints...
In last year's Fall Antique Weekend post, I listed some tips for those of you who might be newbies to the sport of Antiquing.  Here's a quick refresher for you!
Are any of you attending Antique Weekend? If so, let me know what you find! I'll be sure to report back next week with my goods.  Happy hunting!
