Last weekend The Mister and I went to McKinney TX. They have the best town square of any town I’ve visited. Great shopping, great music, great restaurants and great people watching if that’s what you prefer. I was in search of Christmas decor (early, I know) when I came across a fabulous new (to me) store! It’s called Doozie’s Corner and it’s a collection of boutiques.
I noticed it from the corner. The buildings architecture is enough to make you stop but when you look inside the windows, you HAVE to go in.
Look at those old floors and that ceiling and those fun chandeliers. There are stairs on both ends with booths up top. If you need farmhouse decor, they’ve got it. How about unique clothes or floor mats or vintage gift tags? They’ve got that too.
I found several things for my wish list. Like the fabulous pendant light and metal reindeer in the picture above. Aren’t they wonderful?! I’d like to get those reindeer and display them with ribbon and sprigs of greenery around their necks.
I didn’t get a chance to ask about the white mantel in the window. Usually when I find something I’ve been looking for it always has a Not For Sale tag on it. I’ll make sure and ask/beg/grovel next time I’m there though! And did you notice the white mesh curtain? Check out the price. 🙂
Besides the pretty churches, I thought this tree shaped Christmas Countdown Calendar was adorable and huge! Looking for a tobacco basket? There it is. And check out the layered wreath on top. Pairing it with the beaded wreath can carry your decor all they way through winter. I picked up 3 of those giant pinecones. I’ll use them on my front porch light fixture this season. You’ll see that next month in a Christmas home tour.
Speaking of light fixtures… this one is a small version of the one I made for Navasota. You can see it here in this post. I’ve not thought of adding twigs and branches but that would certainly add to the fall decor.
Y’all if I had a place for this bench, I would have called the Mister and said back up the truck! I LOVE IT! Do you remember the antique iron fence panels I mentioned in the last post? This is what I was talking about!
I’m adding a couple of those pillows to my wish list as well. Great quotes and great prices. Want to make a cute Texas impression this gift giving holiday? How about a Hey Y’all tea towel?! Yesum, I’ll take two please.
I also purchased a white table leg for $5.00! It’s chippy and perfect and already has a purpose. I’m making something super cute and festive with it and will show that off in a future post.
Friends, this is just one fabulous store in McKinney TX. I strolled into so many and came out with so much. If you go, let me know – I want to go again. We could enjoy the music and have lunch or dinner or linner! 😉
