A market the size of Round Top Antiques Market brings in all kinds of dealers with everything from fine antiques to new t-shirts, vintage finds to new metal art, architectural salvage to vintage cars, and more. One thing that seems more prevalent that anything else is the Rust Pile.
Every corner you turn, there are rust piles. Every tent, every building, every open air space seems to have some sort of rusty pieces. Pieces that can be turned into something for your yard or home, turned into something that is totally different from its original purpose. These abundant rust piles around Round Top Antiques Market sometimes are very organized, other times they are just what they are piles, big giant collections of rusty metal stuff just waiting for ingenuity to strike.
Regardless of the structure or non-structure of the pile, the rust piles in the fields at Warrenton Texas or any good antique/flea market hold a treasure trove of goodies just waiting to become something fantastic in your home or garden.
So do not look at a rust pile with disdain, look at it with an eye toward possibilities. Possible furniture, possible garden features, possible functional art. Whatever the use, re-purposing something from the rust piles recycles that item and keeps it from ending up in the trash heap.
