The story of Leftovers Antiques begins in 2003 when co-owners Ed Fulkerson and Michael Breddin realized they shared a love of antiques from an early age. They opened their 17,000-SF store, located just west of Brenham, Texas, in 2006.
In the business for more than 15 years, Michael says, “Time flies when you are having fun. Every day is an adventure when we are traveling and hunting for whatever might catch our fancy,” he adds. “One of the things we love about what we do is being able to explore the backcountry of Europe. Whether it is following the little old man we just met to his barn or following the tip of a friend of a friend of a friend in France, it is like having the thrill of the chase inside you all of the time.”
When Round Top rolls back around, he says, “It is our passion for all things old and interesting that brings us back, year after year, show after show. As one of the vendors fortunate enough to be a part of the Market Hill experience, I would have to say that it is a relief to know that my booth and all my inventory are protected from the elements and in a location that is conveniently located right off of the road,” he says.
“Many of our customers and clients are relieved to be in a venue that has air conditioning, solid flooring, and is easy to navigate through. They also love the fact that the Market Hill venue has plenty of parking, clean restrooms and a fabulous restaurant. All of those qualities are a huge draw for fans of antiques as well as hunters of unique finds.”
When asked for a sneak peek of what they are bringing to the fall show, Michael says, “Every piece has a story, a history, and we want to continue to weave that story into the lives of our customers and clients. That is what Leftovers Antiques is all about, ‘leftovers from prior generations,’ pieces whose stories are added to by the story of our lives.”
