There is still time this Summer to hit the Texas Hill Country Antique Trail. Small towns in and around the Hill Country offer some of the best antique and vintage finds for indoors and out. Most shops have items that can be cleaned up and used "as is" or that can be made into new functional home pieces. From plates and hutches to benches and wagon wheels, you are sure to find relics to showcase in your home.
Most shop owners know the history on the items they sell, making your adventure a wonderful history lesson for the kids. Finding those perfect worn, torn or shabby chic collectibles make antiquing fun for all ages. Gather the family or your friends and hit the antique trail. Shop-hop or spend the day in one location; just be sure to have fun.
