The Halles is the world headquarters for Round Top Publishers, who produces Round Top by PaperCity, the main Round Top Antiques & Design Show Guide and roundtop.com, and, is the hub for PaperCity’s initiatives in the country. It is the site of PaperCity/Round Top’s Hospitality Halle and host to 26,000 square feet of invited designers and dealers. It is the entry and exit stop among vast numbers of visitors to the Shows, who can take advantage of our food and bar, while visiting our advertising partners during the day. Importantly, it is a venue to highlight public art and to encourage creativity among artisans and makers.
We offer the venue to clients and sponsors interested in capturing the attention of the large numbers of world class designers and shoppers who flow to the venue during the Shows. It is the physical manifestation that compliments the media properties under our umbrella.
The property sits at the entry and exit point of Round Top (Highway 237) and the sprawling rolling hills of central Texas. Thirteen separate buildings or “Halles” outline the property, filled with unique art installations, antiques, artisan furniture and lighting. Many of the Halles are air conditioned for maximum convenience in displaying the unique baubles. To pay homage to our beloved countryside, the majority of our Halles were constructed from local reclaimed lumber and tin. Including our next door neighbor’s old barn! We love giving old things new life, out in Round Top!
The venue is substantially open air – especially when the weather is good. We are Covid conscientious and provide sanitation stations, welcome social distancing and masking.
