Antique Alley Texas Tips:

  • Don't miss the Sew-n-Sews in Grandview. They're a non-demonational group of ladies (ages 50-ish to 90-ish, as described by the organizers) who set up at the First Baptist Church parking lot. They offer home-sewn quilts, aprons, bonnets, potholders, and much more.
  • Do not park on the highway or shoulder. It's a safety hazard for you and the other drivers, and the Highway Patrol will be writing tickets. Watch for designated pasture parking instead.
  • In Grandview, free parking is available in church parking lots, such as the lot behind the First Baptist Church at 401 E. Criner, and on railroad easements.
  • Keep an eye out for antique sales in local shops, empty fields, and downtown areas. 
  • Pay particular attention to the area Grandview and Cleburne. More pasture shows are opening each year, and you'll find hundreds of vendors at each one.
  • Stop by "Junkin along the Tracks" while you're in Grandview. It's a new section of vendors along the railroad track that runs through the middle of town.
