Educating customers and the public who want to become more savvy, either buying antiques or trying to sell, is key to the ensuring the success of our industry,” said Bobby Boyd, Round Top Organizer. “The biggest question we get every day is ‘what's this worth?’ WorthPoint will be a huge asset to help answer that question throughout the show.”
Round Top, or as some call it, Antique Week or Antique Weekend is one of the largest and most unique shows in the country and is located in Fayette County. Round top began over thirty years ago and quickly became the social event for Houston and Austin socialites every spring and fall. Round Top is not just one show. Over the years it has become a 10 day event featuring thousands of merchants and spread over four very small towns – Round Top, Warrenton, Carmine and Shelby.
“Being part of the Round Top Antique Week is really exciting for us,” said William Seippel, Founder and CEO of WorthPoint. “Shows like Round Top continue to amaze us. You truly get to see firsthand how an entire community of small business owners, land owners as well as the general public come together to buy, sell, and simply have a lot of fun! We are proud to be part of this dynamic industry, and to meet all the dealers as well as buyers that make up the Round Top Shows!”
