Midtown/Downtown

High Fashion Home

From the owners of High Fashion Fabrics comes this huge housewares emporium, where big-ticket leather sofas and red lacquer tables happily coexist with smaller items like candles and bath towels.

Peel Gallery Shop

Steve Hempel's vast gallery shop is a fitting showcase for ultra-modern items, including felt pillows stitched by Cyn & Grif and Camila Prada's sculptural salt and pepper shakers for Thorsten Van Elten. There's also an exceptional selection of jewelry, with a range of finds for $10 and splurges in the four digits from Masaka Ban, Melissa Borrell, and more.

Texas Junk Co.

It's positioned in an old mechanic's garage and requires some effort to navigate its delightfully disorganized chaos, but it's worth it. Celebrated for its selection of used cowboy boots, Texas Junk is also excellent for ferreting out Lone Star ephemera.
