Frisco Mercantile II

Yes, I do realize this is a SECOND posting on the Merc, but I took so many photos of this incredible menagerie of must-haves, I had to split it into two posts.  If you missed the first one, you can find it here.

Very Texas!!

I took this picture for two reasons.  The first and most obvious, is that mannequin head.  Just love her.  Didn't buy her because I was afraid the Mister would like her better than me.  
The second is that print of the infant on the dresser.  I grew up with that print in my room.  My mother told me it was me.  When I was about 5, I noticed the duplicate in my pediatrician's office.  I was very flattered that he had a picture of me!

Unbeknownst to me, Gypsy must have been doing some modeling on the side!

Here's a statue representing all the food groups.

Empty nest times two!

Very sweet booth.

Love the hutch and the plates!

Great idea!

Thought of all my clever DIY friends.  I'm convinced they would do great things with this sweet table.

Boy, if this red wagon doesn't bring back memories.  I can't believe my big rear-end could fit into one!

Love this chandelier but where are the lights/candles?

I bet this chair would be darling reupholstered.

Gotta love a dish towel with a ruffle!

I took this because - as you all know - I could write a book on wine.

Almost bought this for #1 for her bedroom.  If anybody could get her up in the morning, this guy would!  

I fell in love with these dog bowl containers.  Although, they were on the pricey side...  I figure since Gypsy's doing some modeling on the side, she can afford them!

If you are in the Dallas area, I highly recommend spending an afternoon at the Frisco Mercantile.

Hope your day is full of treasures!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. I love this place and will now have to go back and see all the "new" stuff you've shown. Great place to buy Annie Sloan's chalk paint too.

  2. Wow they really do have something for everyone there! I would have grabbed those gorgeous orange Staffordshire dogs and a few blue and white plates:)

    Have a great Sunday!

  3. What a great place. I am really loving the "empty nest X 2". I just might have to recreate that one!!

  4. I love places like this! You never know what you will find that you didn't realize you couldn't live without!

  5. I saw a red wagon bar on Pinterest. They removed the wheels and handle and then attached it to the top of an old-fashioned sewing machine base. So, the wagon replaced the sewing machine. It was so cute, or should I say sew cute. That wagon reminded me of it.

  6. This place is so cute AND I have been needing to buy chalk paint - so I know it is worth a trip! I'm glad you wrote about it!
