Would a rose be a rose or smell as sweet if it were named differently?
Arbor International Antiques and Interior Design Show is quite a mouthful for a name! At the time, we wanted our name to reflect our multi-continental antique sources and amazing variety—from all kinds of art, jewelry, textiles, and furniture–of unique items from our dealers who were direct importers or designers of these fabulous wares.
As owner of the show, we wanted to bridge our love and expertise in Antiques to the Round Top, Tx Antiques Week. It was a great name that described our show to a “T” on paper. However, it was always shortened to “The Arbors” when conversing or telling a friend about our show and even more so after 20 Years!!
Soon, “The Arbors” became not only the nickname of our show, but a reflection of the essence and character of our show. The Arbors, with its big white tents raised to the sky announcing the biannual Round Top hustle and bustle of selling the best wares on earth, has become a great family and the greatest place to be.
So a name may be just a name, but it seems to us to have become so much sweeter here in Round Top!
Come to The Arbors… experience the World in just 12 acres.
