The stars at night, are big and bright (clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of TEXAS! The sage in bloom is like perfume (clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of Texas…be honest fellow Texans…were you clapping along? Lemme hear a big YEE HAW if you were! Because, Texas y’all!!! OK, so all my fellow Lone Star State fanatics, would you like the inside scoop on THREE great places to find the coolest Texas gear? I’ve got you covered!
About a month ago, my husband and I were on the hunt for good local bone broth, and I was advised to go to the Dallas Farmer’s Market, which has undergone a giant remodel and facelift in recent years. Silly us for never getting down there….but you know what they say about getting out and about in your own home town…Regardless, we made the field trip, and enjoyed a very fun day!
Inside The Market building, we found the Bone Broth, which I talked about on Instagram Stories, so I hope you are following me on Instagram! But also in this building I discovered three of the CUTEST local shops, with the BEST Texas gear around.
The first shop is called Dallas Antique Company. Inside I discovered super cute Texas T-Shirts, calf hair earrings (and who doesn’t need a pair of those…especially college girls in the appropriate collegiate colors) and many Texas themed decorative items and gear that are fabulous gift ideas!
Speaking of T-shirts, the second shop I discovered is called Bullzerk. How hilarious is that? This store has the funniest and quirkiest t-shirts and Texas gear….and all very good quality soft cotton. They also sell baseball hats, bumper stickers, key chains and other items with the same funny and quirky sayings and logs, and also….PRAYER candles…featuring famous Texans, Presidents, pop culture icons, and even cartoon characters. Totally funny, and pretty sure I need all of them!
The third store at The Market is called Lone Chimney Mercantile. This is Texas gear central, y’all. Paintings of Dallas and other iconic Texas images like the State Fair, Whiski Designs note cards (I bought a ton of them!!!), jewelry, and tons of Texas-themed decorative items.
These stores are a great resource for Texas gear themed graduation gifts for that student who is leaving Texas, but clearly remaining a Texan at heart, for those who are new to our awesome state, and need a Howdy Y’all Welcome Gift, or a fun and funky gift for that Texan who has everything!
If you are looking for another Texas gift source, this post highlights a GORGEOUS coffee table book that can be purchased locally in Dallas, and also on Amazon!!!! If you are visiting Dallas, and are looking for more destination shopping suggestions, this post and this post offer great information!
Shop local, and pick out a gift that shows your Lone Star State Pride…..Texas gear!
