When asked what’s new about his business, Scott Smith says, “The whole darn thing!” “What I love most about what I do is enjoying Western European culture while sourcing pieces of such quality that’s difficult to find in the States.”

As for what we can expect from SVO at its debut show at Market Hill, he says “Some cool 50s vintage design pieces from Norway and Denmark and several sleek leather pieces by DeSede of Switzerland.”

Market Hill provides the perfect place to showcase his finds and meet with clients and vendors. 

“Finally! A proper venue to shop for quality furniture and decor without battling the elements,” he says. “It’s the right venue for the casual shopper as well as design professionals and retailers, plus it’s always great to catch up with buyers and fellow dealers from across the globe.”

Lee Ellis of Round Top Merchant agrees. “I love discovering and curating a collection of amazing furniture, and meeting interesting people along the way. Now that I live in Round Top, I look forward to all the craziness of the show,” he says. “We have the best antiques show in the world!” As for why he chose to be a part of the Market Hill experience, “Market Hill is the best one-stop shopping in Round Top. Awesome venue, vendors, food, and entertainment.”

Michelle Ellis is also excited to make Market Hill her home. “I love Market Hill, the environment, the collection of vendors, the camaraderie, the A/C!”  Her contemporary style incorporates nature, such as flowers, plants and sky, with bright, bold colors, and her own signature whimsy like the recurring use of eyes in her work, as seen in these paintings. Her work is very personal and powerful yet playful. “I love the time I spend painting. I get lost in the creative process, and I discover new things about myself with each new painting.”

Come discover these three new vendors at Market Hill.
