Since 1999! April 15-17, 2016 is the next show date! 9 am to 6 pm, Rain or Shine! This is a Bi-Annual event ALWAYS held on the third Friday, Saturday & Sunday every April & September
Shows are too numerous and spread out to put a number on it. Some show organizers advertise here, some do not. The best way to get a feel for the Antique Alley Treasure Hunt is to prepare for an adventure! Pick YOUR OWN STARTING POINT based on the towns you know are participating and just go for it (DRIVE SAFE, traffic will be heavy). EVERY Antique Alley shapes up differently. No two are the same. based on whether churches have repeat sales or whether vendors return to their same spot on the shopping trail.

There are landowners organized with vendors and food truck proprietors on site. All these activities are scattered, not back to back. Downtown Grandview, Sand Flat, Maypearl, Alvarado and Venus will have vendors lined up with plenty to look at on their main drag. Cleburne has scattered sales all over town.

SAFETY FIRST: Do NOT park on the highway. If a landowner does not offer safe parking in their pasture, don't stop! DPS troopers give tickets for parking on the shoulder of the highway.

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? If you can shop all three days of the show, fantastic! because you cannot see the entire shopping venue in one day. 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 at the present time of landowner shows is between Grandview and Cleburne via HWY 4 (S) & (E). If you have limited time, we recommend starting on HWY 4. Many residents here enjoy classic and antique cars and trucks. Classic cars, antique tractors and motorcycle owners and club members are frequently seen cruising the show.

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 in Cleburne. If you are coming to Antique Alley via Cleburne, find the town square at the Court House. The correct leg of HWY 4 is SOUTH of the town square.

From the town square, go SOUTH on Main Street (one way only) to Second Street (about a mile, or so). Go LEFT on Second Street, cross Caddo Street (also a one-way-only street), keep going EAST, cross the railroad tracks and you have found THE shopping trail!

If you are coming from the north (Fort Worth), stop off in Alvarado (town square) or take I-35W to Grandview exit 16. From 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: Venus first, then either head south on FM 157 to Maypearl or stay west on Hwy 67 to Alvarado. From there you can jump on I-35 W for a ten mile trek to Grandview (exit 16 or 15) or stay west on Hwy 67 to Cleburne. ALL YOUR CHOICE.

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!
Yard sales are plentiful. There will be some churches having parking lot fundraisers. A friend presented a gorgeous, vintage, hand-quilted quilt found at a Methodist Lord’s Acre fundraiser. She paid a mere $50.00 and resold it in her shop in Plano for $300.00. Johnson and Ellis counties have a lot of farming and ranching so there may be a few barn sales. Pickers, dealers, collectors and folks wanting an unusual decorative item for their home can find all kinds of stuff.
Junkers and those DIY folks wanting to create art by repurposing obsolete items will find many ideas worthy of consideration. For the young parents, there are also families selling children’s clothing and toys – as they say, something for everyone!

Be advised: a true, bonafide Antique Alley Texas "antiquer-junker-artist" (a.k.a., treasure hunter & DIY repurposer) is a laid-back, easy going soul who ALWAYS drives friendly; practices the Golden Rule, doesn't "Mess With Texas" (no tossing trash out a window) and generally someone who loves giggling a lot, skipping through life with your best buds, keeping stuff out of landfills and discovering a great bargainl!

The community of Venus had their very first show last September! They are just east of Alvarado on State Hwy 67. The town of Venus is a natural progression for the AAT Trail.

Do tell what's happening in your area. Send news and information of interest to info@AntiqueAlleyTexas.com. Announcements are posted at the discretion of the website administrator.

There are many of us Antique Alley Texas (AAT) organizers working together who are comprised of pasture and lot owners operating independently, including those working with cities and chambers of commerce to set-up downtown areas of participating communities. It's a well-known fact we enjoy partnering with fun, talented folks to put together a great festival-style event! Are you an artist? Are you an eclectic collector/seller of vintage and unusual items? Join our troupe! We are actively seeking proprietors of items hand made, one of a kind decorative arts and things of that nature. We LOVE antiques (the real deal) and old stuff in general. We enjoy partnering with others of like mind. To inquire about space rental, visit the 'Contact Us' page. If you organize a show and wish to advertise here, contact Lisa at info@AntiqueAlleyTexas.com.

Venues are outdoor so weather always plays into planning and prep. Our dealers enjoy the adventure of an outdoor shopping venue! Rain or shine, we ALWAYS have the show! AAT is a very eclectic mix of all kinds of stuff. It is a treasure hunter's delight!
Miles of Shopping & Sales GALORE!
The show keeps growing. Some show ORGANIZERS ADVERTISE HERE, but not all. Are you looking to promote your Antique Alley event? Contact us! For a nominal fee, you can get listed here. Many treasure hunters visit the Vendor Link AND the Contact Us link to map out dealers and shows they don't want to miss! AntiqueAlleyTexas.com is an excellent source to plan your adventure!

Visit the VENDOR link to see the dealers advertising on the AntiqueAlleyTexas.com website. Most food sales are highly regulated. For example, most show promoters prefer only one kettle corn vendor, one turkey leg vendor, one hamburger, one BBQ brisket, etc. within their venue to help ensure all food purveyors maximize their sales.

Classic cars, antique tractors, fried-on-the-spot homemade fruit pies and homemade ice cream plus much, much more define the Antique Alley Texas experience! You can't see it all in a day! Click on the Accommodations Link and let Trivago show you where the best places are to stay!
