E nglish antiques pur veyor Gina Bowhill and Houston interior designer Roseanette Navarro became fast friends when they met in Round Top at the Blue Hills antiques and design venue. After showcasing their wares side-by-side for several seasons, they teamed up to launch The Georgie Rose, a year-round shop across from Henkel Square that soft-opened over the summer. The shop — its name, a riff on the owners' first names — stocks all the objects they love, from European antiques (many French, Italian, and Swedish) to textiles, artworks, statuary, garden objects, candles, and more. "We have European containers arriving on a regular basis and we will be doing monthly collaborations and pop-ups with exciting, creative artisans we love," Bowhill says. The in-town shop is open Thursday through Sunday, and Bowhill and Navarro will continue during the shows at Blue Hills. The Georgie Rose, 106 N. Washington, Round Top, @thegeorgierose. THE GEORGIE ROSE BLOOMS ROUND ABOUT ROUND TOP T he Horseshoe, one of Round Top's newest seasonal venues, has expanded dramatically for the Fall 2023 Round Top Antiques + Design Show. Owner and artist Ryan Buenning has tacked on an additional 20,000 square feet of shopping space in the form of eight steel-beam barns that house both new and founding vendors, bringing the total number of permanent structures to 12. He's also purchased three acres adjacent to his original property, which provide a second entrance from Highway 237 and create a true horseshoe shape for the site. Located a stone's throw from Marburger Farm, the venue opened with founding vendors Prize Home + Garden, artist Chad Kilgore, antique door purveyor Antiques & Vintage Texas, milliner Teressa Foglia, and upcycled industrial furniture maker Iron Rodeo. Anchor vendor Prize Home + Garden has expanded into a newly constructed 7,000-square- foot barn that spills out onto a 3,000-square-foot outdoor area with garden space. Prize also continues to occupy a portion of its original barn at The Horseshoe, bringing its total retail space to 10,000 square feet. Prize will also continue to show at Marburger Farm Antique Show this fall, where he's been a vendor for nearly two decades. "I had a fantastic show this spring, and I'm doubling down hard at The Horseshoe," says Prize Home + Garden owner Steve Rogers. "Ryan and I are also discussing some openings between shows for a few the buildings. Founding vendor Chad Kilgore has also expanded into his own 1,800-square-foot gallery. Meanwhile, Teressa Foglia has a new structure located under a blissful patch of old oak trees, with twinkling lights and a stage for hosting events. Returning vendors Antiques & Vintage and Iron Rodeo will again share a large barn this fall. New fall vendors at The Horseshoe include mid-century rug and lighting source Antevasins Imports; Nashville vintage clothing company The West Place; retro Americana retailer Toll Gate Revival, sharing a space with vintage signage dealer Roadhouse Rarities; R.L.H. European Imports; Rose and Grace Market; artist Brooke Noel Morgan; Collected Matter; Carol Hicks Bolton Antiques; and Natalie Grace Home. Open October 12 – 28; The Horseshoe, 2105 S.
