Since 1997, the iconic Marburger Farm Antique Show, well-known by interior designers, collectors and culture seekers and based in Round Top, Texas, has chosen Atlanta to be the location of its first event outside of Texas. Featuring a summer and winter event, it will be held from July 17-20 at the historic Philip Shutze-designed Southern Exchange Ballrooms in downtown Atlanta, presenting 35,000 square feet of shopping with 60 dealers. The event is free and open to the public.

Marburger Farm Antique Show, owned and operated by Dallas-based Brook Partners, is a one-of-a-kind real estate firm dedicated to advancing culture and community.

Commenting on the inaugural Marburger Atlanta show, Mallory Culbert, director of dealer relations, shared, “We wanted to bring the Marburger experience to the Southeast as Atlanta deserves a spotlight show. Atlanta had a lot of dealers in the Southeast and was a prime location, since it is a global hub from a density standpoint. Atlanta is filled with interior design projects in a radius nearby with tremendous character. This event will be filled with surprises as dealers have scoured the globe for what they source for our shows with rich insight into the history of each piece.”

Culbert adds, “Marburger Atlanta offers something fabulous for the professional buyer and public and Macy’s building was chosen due to its character and history. The remarkable shopping environment will be on two different levels, and in one fell swoop you can circle the globe covering centuries. Shoppers will remember the space as Macy’s, formerly Davison’s, and find a range of art to antiques, and a variety of European and American antiques, global relics, midcentury modern rarities, and post-modern treasures.”

Recent Marburger shows in Round Top, Texas, have drawn celebrity designers Kelly Wearstler, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, Carson Kressley, and Joanna Gaines as well as celebrities Gwen Stefani, Jenna Lyons, Brooklyn Decker, and Camila and Matthew McConaughey.

In celebration of this event with a first look at the treasures, Marburger will open its doors the evening before the show for a VIP Shopping Experience from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., July 16. The $200 ticketed preview event with a portion of preview ticket sale proceeds benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is expected to draw hundreds of top names in design and culture from Atlanta and beyond.

The show is open free to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., July 17-20, and closes at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. For more information and to reserve free tickets to attend, visit marburgeratlanta.com.
