Back In Waxahachie & A Great Little Shop

You can just feel the love when you walk in the door. Or maybe it was simply me falling in love with this adorable new shop in Waxahachie on my recent return to one of my favorite small towns in Texas. Just a peek inside the window of the High Cotton Emporium will tell you why.

All the things I love, in all of my favorite colors! With one pretty display following another.

Lots of talent on show here.

The owners are busy preparing for a Grand Opening this Thursday, May 11th. Click here for more information and details on their Facebook page. 

I wish we could stick around for all the fun!

In the meantime, here's a look at some of the beautiful painted furniture and accessories that they have for sale in this elegant little shop.

We loved this adorable corner with painted shutters and a wonderfully detailed wood door.

The perfectly chippy iron bed. . . 

dressed to the nines! (Don't you just adore those ruffles?)

It was a bit tricky to get a good shot of this dreamy twiggy display with a lovely petite chandelier featured inside. But what a delight it is to see in person!

I can never let go of thoughts of one of my all-time favorite movies set in Waxahachie-- Places In The Heart. (Even if I have to check the town spelling every time! Haha!) Like the heartwarming movie, the shop plays up the cotton history of the place. Especially since their wonderful old building was once an old cotton exchange.

Such a treat in store for ya'll here! Come on by if you can. We just happened to be walking by after lunch, and can't wait to get back again sometime. There are lots more vintage shops near the square, so a destination shopping trip would be the thing to do. Next time I think I'll bring a truck! 

Best of luck on your grand opening this week ladies! I think lots of folks will be very happy to greet you. 

And thanks for adding so much unexpected delight to our return trip to Waxahachie!

Hope it's a great new week for all of you too!



  1. That does look like a perfect shop for you. Is that down by Grapevine? McKinney, TX has many malls and stores and I bet you could find a ton there.

  2. You're right Donna! I LOVE shopping McKinney. But it's been a long while. Waxahachie is south of Dallas a ways.

  3. Oh, what a wonderful shop! I saw some things I would not be able to resist! I love the name of the town and the movie is one of my all-time favorites. Texas sure has some great shops! xx K

  4. I love the name of the town. The shop is very beautiful. Must be very hard to resist.

  5. So FAR away---from Chicago. We just don't have anyone here with that style, that I have found. Grins, what a gorgeous shop. Thanks for sharing, Sandi

  6. Oh, this is just lovely. So many pretty things -- I fear I would have overdrawn the VISA card! Love the twig action and those pretty bottles!

  7. Thanks for sharing this delightful little shop. It's full of so many things that I love. I think I would plan on taking a truck on your next trip too!!


  8. It is wonderful and I would be drooling. But I plan on drooling a bit when I visit the shop where you sell in a couple weeks. Looking forward to a stop in Albuquerque the end of May. A quick stop along the road, but never the less a delightful one I am sure.

  9. Stopping by to wish you a Happy Mother's Day, Jacqueline. Hope your day is filled with delights. Love this little shop!

  10. How nice. I wish it was a little more closely to the Netherlands :).Greetings from the Netherlands
