If you are looking for a formal dress that one one will have or for one that fits you just right- go see Lynnes Bridal. They are so nice and have a wonderful selection. I have never bought a wedding dress there but they do have some very beautiful gowns. They have room to try them on and plenty of mirrors to get a full look at the gown. They carry a large line of formals that can be for prom, parties, pagents, or bridesmaids dresses. The prices are good and competitive. They go wonderful fittings and the staff is friendly and inviting.
I first was given one of her candles as a gift and then had to go find them for myself because they smelled so good and didn't smike. I found this little house shop in Fort Worth and walked in and was greated with the greatest scents! They have some of the best candles I have ever burned. The christmas candles and cinammon ones are my favorite but they have all kinds for each season and for each person's taste. Small shop but big smelling candles!
I needed to get towels embroidered for a gift and decided to try Embroidme. I am glad I did. They did all my work for under $15 dollars and I was pleased that I got it back in a week and had it in time to give as a gift. They did great work and the towels looked very professional. My friend loved them and I plan on getting more done for Christmas. They also screen print and do hats and such. The staff was nice and the guy who helped me really knew his stuff!
I love Operation Kindness and if anyone is looking for a dog or cat- check them out first. They are a no-kill shelter and they take the best of care of all the animals they get. They take have all the check up dones and shots. They will give the animal any type of medical attention they need and then when they are well - they let people adopt them and fully tell you what they have done. You do have to fill out an application that is longer than most shelters but it is just because they care so much about their animals. The adpotion price goes to help keep the shelter going and for all the had to do for the animal why it was there. A+++ group!
If you are looking for something that says Texas or has that Texas flare- look no farther. I have a ton of friends and family who live out of state and I love to send them a little piece of Texas when I send gifts. I have gotten a lot of t-shirts, mugs, etc for Texas Souveniers. The prices are much better than what you find in the airports and other souvenir shops of that sort. It is hard to find Texas souvenirs that aren't cheap looking or cheesy but Texas Souvenirs has a wide line of nice leather and glass items that make great gifts!
This is a fun store all year around with all the interior decor ideas and items they have but durning the holidays it is transformed into a christmas wonderland. They put up tons of trees and decorate each one different. They also have tons of wreaths that are made to be able to find one that fits any decor. I love to just walk around ang get ideas for decorating from here but I always buy too much also! The prices are very good for the quality and unique products they have. They have a lot of pieces to make the wreaths with and they are prices very well.
If you are looking for good deals on boots and western apparel- drive out to Justin Texas and go to Justin Discount Boots and Cowboy Outfitters. They have a great store downtown in Justin (can't miss it- there isn't much else on the main road). I just love this place because you can get boots that are 99% perfect for a good discounted price. They often do more mark downs and you can get them at a better price. They also have belts and belt buckels but those are first quality. The staff is very very friendly and you can spend days trying on all the boots they have one in the store!
You can't miss this place with it's very unique sign that looks like the words are breaking out of the wall!
They do installs and custom change overs. I bought a radio and wanted it installed in my truck so I took it to Crank it Up! I was so impressed at how fast and professional everyone in the shop for me. I got my install done quick and they had everything in stock for my install!
I would call to see how busy they are before you go over to get something installed. I think they are booked up on most weekends but they are really great about fitting people in!
Fish Paradise is a specialized pet store. They know their fish and can help you find the right tank and fish for you. I wanted salt water but after talking to a couple of the employess and having them explain how much work it is - they steered me into a better choice for me. I love my fish and tank that I got from them and go back to get all the needed drops and food to make sure my fish friends stay alive. The prices are very good and their is plenty of parking.
If you are looking for children's books- this is the place for you. I love this little store because they have all the hardback children's books and great little books for toddlers (the kind they can't destroy). They carry all the Newberry award books and if they don't have it on stock right then-they will order it. The prices are very competitive to those at Barnes and Knoble and some are much cheaper. The staff knows their stuff and will suggest books if you just tell them the childs age and reading level.
