You Don’t Retire from Round Top

A Texas Native is Pulled Back to Open an Ambitious New Store

BY // 08.26.16

Texas native Holly Kuhn just can’t stay away from Round Top. She’s lived in Denver for decades, where she operates a successful antiques store, Old Glory Antiques. For the past five years, she’s been popping up shop in Round Top twice a year during the shows, most recently in a wonderful old dance hall in Burton that she converted into a store.

Kuhn sold the hall in April, intending to take a little time away from Texas. “But we discovered that once you’ve been part of the Round Top world, it’s hard to stay away,” she says.

When Washington Square Park in Round Top became available for sale early this summer, she knew it was the perfect spot for Old Glory Texas. Kuhn closed on the property this summer, and her early plans include building a 4,000-square-foot store, slated to open Fall 2017. Initially, Old Glory Antiques will open during the fall and spring antiques shows, with plans to remain open year-round in the works.
