As long as we can remember, we've always had a thing for numeric typography. It has always spoken to us from the very beginning when we first started with the various ways we've incorporated numbers into the decor of No. 1450 cottage. I think it's such a cool aspect in design, and it continues to catch our eye, especially with authentic pieces like this vintage metal sign.Read More

Back in its day, this vintage French sign may have served as a signal post for military traffic or a town road sign. Today, it serves as a sign post from the past with the its vintage paint and worn edges.
We found this cool sign in the French town of Marseilles, which is a beautiful beach town on the water. As we explored and took in the sights, you could really feel the soul of this old French town. It was such an incredible experience visiting this amazing place, much less being able to shop for priceless antiques there.
This vintage sign is an authentic French piece. Today there is a tremendous amount of vintage and antique knock-offs, so there's something to be said about the soul and stories carried with an authentic piece. We think this sign was used on a military road, so each man or woman who drive by it had a story and a reason for being there. That's the soul that these pieces carry with them throughout the years.
Found in the French town of Nimes, this beautifully aged "L'illustration" book dates back to 1891. From the illustrations and articles on the pages, this bound piece of French antiquity seems to be a periodical or world book.Read More
We found these gorgeous amber bottles on our trip to France a few years ago, and I was immediately taken by the beautiful color and the porcelain pop-tops. Upon further inspection, we learned that these bottles are from "Brasserie du Zenith," a brewery in Marseille.Read More

It's hard to put into words how grateful we are that Emily Henderson and her team stayed at at our place during the spring antique show. Life works in mysterious ways, because none of this would have happened if we hadn't received a cancellation the day before we got a call from Emily's team. I was upset and frustrated about the cancellation, but obviously everything happens for a reason and I'm unbelievably thankful for it now.

When opportunity knocks, you roll up your sleeves and get to work. We had a major push to get everything done with Boho (the new cottage) in time for Emily's stay. We worked late nights and early mornings, living on caffeine to get the job done. We appreciate our staff, our contractors that worked round the clock, our children who pitched in and helped weekend after weekend, and our family and friends who cared for our kids while we were away. It truly does take a village!
As a short recap of their stay, we had the pleasure of guiding them around Round Top while they stayed at our No. 1450 and Boho cottages. We were able to show them our magical town, and gave them tips on where to shop and dine. It was such a fun time getting to explore Round Top with them and to see it from the perspective of first-timers!

As a result of hard work and this amazing opportunity, we gained a new audience from Emily but we also gained new friends. Emily and her team were the sweetest people you could ever meet. We spent a lot of time with them and really got to know them well. Hosting Emily not only helped our business, but it also was great for our souls!

Watching Emily and her team was remarkable. They are like a well oiled machine. We're humbled by their reaction to our space and brand and are thankful for everything they've done to get the word out about us and Round Top!
