This cozy little shop is full of lovingly made primitive and folk art items. The shop owners have created the majority of the inventory, which ranges from dolls to quilts. Dolls range from Santas to Angels and each one is tea-dyed and tattered to give it the illusion of being an authentic antique. There are also beautiful wall hangings, wearable art items and samplers fit for home use. If you don't find exactly what you have in mind, you can simply purchase the materials and pattern and make your own. There are even classes offered here. There is nothing plain about this shop!

Simply described, Half-Price Books sells hardbacks, paperbacks, glossy magazines, vinyl LPs, circular CDs, tapes, videos and even software. It also pays cash for these same items. The inventory hasn't yet made it into a computer database, so you'll have to "hunt and pick," but then again, that's half the fun. The store's unhurried atmosphere makes it a great place to while away a Sunday afternoon or even a lunch hour. But as you meander through the aisles, keep an eye out for the store's mascot a very white, very fat and very contented cat named Sebastian.
Just a short drive out of the city, you'll find some of the best barbecue in this part of the state.

To get geared up for all your outdoor adventures, head to Bass Pro Shop. This huge store has everything you need to fish, hike, and hunt: apparel for men and women, fishing poles, ATVs, and more.

If you work up an appetite wandering through the displays of taxidermy animals and wilderness, the onsite restaurant serves tasty food that will satisfy your hunger.

Featuring an immense collection of boots and hats, it also offers women's clothing, menswear, a large children's section, and larger-size clothing for both men and women. The store carries full lines of blue jeans and casual shirts, as well as dressier clothing to wear at the office or on a night out. Brands include Wrangler, Justin, Stetson, Carhartt, Rockies and Resistol. You will also find souvenirs and western accessories ranging from jewelry and rattlesnake skins to postcards and bolo ties. The store will ship internationally from its online catalog.
From recent releases to timeless classics, For Your Entertainment stacks them all. Located at the Ingram Park Mall, the store is situated in between Macy's and Sears. The three most prominent sources of leisure i.e books, movies and music CD's form the majority of what's on offer. If not willing to spend a share on originals, you could scan the used titles on display and you might just find the one you're looking for. The store also ships its goods anywhere around the US.
Anchored on three ends by Foley's, Dillard's and Sears, Ingram Park Mall is a traditional mall that houses traditional stores as well as some Texas favorites such as James Avery. The food court offers a little something for everyone, and there are specialty food and candy stores surrounding it. From Monday through Friday, the mall opens its doors at 7:15a and allows walkers to use the mall as a "track". Don't try to do this after the stores open at 10a, though, because this mall is always busy.
If you aren't a cowboy, at least you can dress like one. Cavender's Boot City carries everything you need—boots, jeans, shirts, belts and hats. To really blend in here in Texas, opt for Wrangler jeans, a Wrangler Brushpopper shirt and some Justin Roper boots. If you pick out a Resistol hat, be sure you wear straw from after Easter up until Labor Day, and felt after Labor Day all the way through to Easter. This location is not far from Far West Rodeo, one of the largest country and western bars in the city. How convenient! San Antonio offers two other locations as well.
