Twice a year in a small Texas town, people from around the United States flock to hunt for treasure. The Round Top Antiques Show
features vendors from around the country, with a treasure trove of old and new wares. An opportunity for one-of-a-kind finds, we've been SCOUTing Round Top for years. From unique showstoppers to innovative artists to vintage inspiration, we brought a lot back with us this year.
Our favorite part of Round Top? Getting the opportunity to meet the creative vendors and artists behind unique displays and rare pieces! Here's a little bit about the artists we loved from this year's show:
Dustin Swartz co-owns and operates The Green Door Antiques
in Kansas City. Specializing in a juxtaposition between the real and the graphic, paintings by Dustin Swartz have their own unique look. Family, school, and work experiences all conspired to make Dustin an artist who defies a convenient label. In his work and in his art, Dustin toes the line between right brain and left brain - the precise and the creative.
