110 ANTIQUES A GOGO MARKET HILL AND PAPERCITY FÊTE ROUND TOP. E very spring and fall, like the antiques fair that transforms Round Top from a low-key hamlet to an antiques Mecca for thousands of designers and treasure seekers, PaperCity teams up with a local host for a party celebrating the magazine's biannual Round Top special s ection that toasts the buzz, events, new retail openings, art, and culinary affairs. This past autumn, Market Hill and the founding family — Debbie and Paul Michael, and son Jake Michael — hosted the event in their 130,000-square-foot antiques emporium, with cocktailing, shopping, and a Tex-Mex dinner prepared by Market Hill's own restaurant. Groaning platters of fajitas and fi xings aligned on long, long antique farmhouse tables, and Lee Ellis of Ellis Motel reigned over the drinks cart fueled by Frankly Organic Vodka. And so they fl ocked — more than 200 guests, including Round Top regulars and recent transplants, a sizable contingent in from Houston for an event they never miss, as well as merchants with booths at Market Hill and beyond. The crowd dined at rustic tables as the stars came out, and basked in the grand fi nale of the night — a gorgeous sunset peeking through the baled hay in the fi elds beyond Market Hill's expansive mercantile space.
