Antique Alley of Texas celebrates 20 years in 2019 and will operate in Waxahachie on Saturday.
This is the second year for Antique Alley of Texas to host in the Gingerbread Capital as an official stop on the touring sale. Downtown merchants will also feature sidewalk sales too, as thousands of visitors make their way to the square.
Lisa Hill, Antique Alley Texas Association Co-founder, expressed over the phone, "We are just really excited."
She continued, "It's a lot of hard work that has paid off by working together with other small, locally owned businesses that have banded together. It has taken 20 years to be named the number one tourism event for Johnson County, and it's spreading like wildfire in Ellis County."
Antique Alley on the Square will have up to 50 vendors on the square selling collectibles, home décor, toys, furniture, sporting goods, as well as original items made by local craftsmen. The vendors will set up in the parking spaces around the Ellis County Courthouse along College and Franklin Streets.
Antique Alley on the Square will run from 9 a.m.— 5 p.m. The weather is predicted to have a high of 79 with clear skies.
Antique Alley originated in Grandview as a sidewalk sale in 1999 and takes place in several towns across Johnson and Ellis Counties — Grandview, Cleburne, Keene, Alvarado, Venus, Maypearl and now Waxahachie.
