Last weekend, as they do twice a year, design-loving Houstonians headed to Round Top for shopping, sips and soirees. Houston-based Ginger Barber Interior Design and crowd-fave vendor Paul Michael Company teamed up for a philanthropic evening benefiting nonprofit Habitat for Horses.
The organization rescues and rehabilitates horses, such as Bob and Thor, two equines who greeted the crowd of boot-clad guests at Market Hill. The venue's restaurant, Duo by Gino and Nate, provided a delicious spread of bites, and the wine was flowing throughout the evening — just like the bids at the silent auction table! Popular items included ones from Round Top go-tos The Frenchy and Junk Gypsy, plus a Park City getaway.
The designer- and artist-heavy crowd perused Market Hill's vendors while Kimberly Dunn provided a soundtrack of country faves and original songs. In all, the night reined in an impressive $70,000 for Habitat for Horses.
