Since 1999! April 17-19, 2015 is the next show date!
Cleburne, Sand Flat, Maypearl, Grandview and Alvarado welcome you to visit our communities during Antique Alley Texas! This will be Alvarado's 2nd show - welcome aboard! The town of Itasca no longer participates (great folks; great town, just not enough folks able to help organize the show there).

Is this your FIRST TIME to shop Antique Alley Texas? Callers sometimes ask WHERE DO I START? There are several answers depending on your situation. Where are you coming from? How long will you have to shop? There is NO SET STARTING POINT - Antique Alley Texas is spread out between several small communities. The center of the show is GRANDVIEW, located right in the middle of the shopping trail conveniently located one mile off of I-35W (take exit 15 or 16 and follow the signs). If Sunday is the only day you are able to shop, organizers want to let you know that many of our dealers with strict religious convictions will not set up on Sunday. There are many Mennonite families that sell handmade furniture, homemade jams, jellies, cakes, breads and pies that you will miss. Many say it is noticeably less festive on Sunday but still worthy of your visit. If you are able, try to visit on a Friday or Saturday. Many shoppers save Sunday for a slow stroll through their favorite shopping venues. We hear rumors that sometimes those dealers don't want to pack it up - hello, Bargain Town!

Will you be able to shop all THREE DAYS of the show? If you have a lot of time to explore, then begin at a location nearest where you are coming from. If you are travelling from the southeast, start in Maypearl and head west! Coming from the west? Begin your adventure in Cleburne! The highest concentration of landowner shows is between Grandview and Cleburne via HWY 4 E. If you have limited time, we recommend starting on HWY 4. Downtown Grandview and Maypearl will have festival-style foods with vendors and dealers lining their main drag. Classic cars, antique tractors and motorcycle clubs are frequently seen participating during the show.

Antique Alley consists of yard sales, local fundraisers (churches, Boy Scouts, Band Boosters, etc.), professional dealers and vendors set-up along-side local families who might be cleaning out great-grandpa's barn. Every show shapes up differently from the last.

SPECIAL NOTE: HWY 4 is an old farm-to-market road. Over the years, it has been dissected by other, larger highways. That makes finding the correct stretch of HWY 4 rather confusing to a first-time visitor. HWY 4 is split by State Highway 174 in Cleburne. If you are coming to Antique Alley via Cleburne, find the town square. From there, take Main Street (one way only) south to Second Street. Go left on Second, cross Caddo Street (also a one-way-only street), head east, cross the railroad tracks and you have found THE shopping trail! If you are coming from the north (Fort Worth), take I-35W to Grandview exit 16. One mile and you are right in the BIG MIDDLE of the show! If you are coming from Dallas via HWY 67, it's your choice: start in Alvarado, then head south to Grandview or stay west to Cleburne. Coming from Waxahachie? Take FM 66 to Maypearl! FM 66 turns into FM 916 and FM 916 turns into HWY 4 at Grandview - it's easy once you get that 1st visit "under your belt"! We hope this information helps. Last show, we were flooded with calls from folks lost on the wrong leg of HWY 4 - don't trust that GPS!

Antique Alley Texas is always held on the third Friday, Saturday & Sunday every April and September. The show is advertised from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Rain or shine, we'll have a show!

SAFETY FIRST: Do NOT park on the highway. If a landowner does not offer safe parking in their pasture, don't stop! Drive safe! Traffic will be heavy; especially on HWY 4 (E) & (S). Be kind; be friendly. If you see someone pull onto the shoulder to creep past waiting traffic, it could be a resident trying to get to their mailbox and up to their driveway! It will be 'slow-going' on the way to certain shopping venues. DPS troopers give tickets for parking on the shoulder of the highway.
