Inside Punkie’s Place: A Round Top Wonderland

400 300 Shannon Yoachum

We had finally made it to the Spring show at Round Top highly anticipating our arrival at Punkie’s Place. Walking into the tent, we realized that reality had left us. Suddenly, Lauren and I entered a world of creativity, flashbacks to different eras, fun themes and vintage-painted boots. Bold colors, disco balls, fiesta fun, glitter, clothing, jewels and antiques galore. The feeling must have been similar to when Alice entered her Wonderland. Diane Conlee, owner of Punkie’s Place, had transformed the space into a junky, funky store in only one week. You may be wondering where the name Punkie came from? Well, Diane’s party poodle, Punkie, was the inspiration and the rest is history.

We could not believe our eyes. Each season, she has figured out a way to make Punkie’s Place better than the previous show. Punkie’s has become a hot spot at the Round Top shows twice a year, bringing in people from all over the country to see what Diane and the Punkie’s dealers have put together. Not to mention they are extremely fun to be around! If you haven’t been to this show, we strongly suggest trekking to Round Top, Texas to see the magic for yourself.

We may not be able to venture down the rabbit hole like Alice, but we have captured the Punkie’s Place experience in our exclusive video interview with the mastermind behind it all, Diane Conlee. Visit Punkie’s Place at the next Round Top show, September 23-October 1, 2011.
