Funky, Funky, Junky!…
Funky, funky, junky! In an oh, so perfect way!
Texas Junk Company is known for – and what drew us in this pretty quirky store, are the hundreds upon hundreds of used cowboy boots. Ranging in size and price but well-organized on the shelves, the boots stand proudly in their berths, calling out to those who would give them a home.
Tarzan is going to celebrate a birthday at the end of this month. I asked him, “What would you like to receive as a gift from Jane this year?”
He replied, “I want cowboy work boots!”
Well, you can’t live in Texas without a true Texas staple. But just to be sure he was really going to wear them…I said, “Lets try this route out first.”
Let’s just say, Tarzan can be quiet picky.
There was so much junk…I mean…great antiques…smile. But the advertising did live up to its name.
Tarzan made his way to the back of the store to start the big hunt. But there was a problem, Jane ran across these adorable women’s boots before I could get back to help Tarzan.
There was a hitch…the boots were too small. Jane was very sad!
As you can see, there is a lot to choose from!
As the saying goes, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”
I highly recommend coming here if you’re looking to get some western wear but don’t plan on making boots or pearl snaps part of your weekly attire.
I loved this place. Lots of character and plenty to see.
Tarzan DID walked away with a practically new pair of Twisted X boots for work for only $85.
We could barely find a scuff mark on the soles. If you’re just looking for a pair of sturdy work boots, you can find those for as low as $30 – and the owner has a good eye for quality.
Just call us Junk Shop Junkies…
Would you be brave enough to take a stroll here?

I love this piece – I was almost there with you with all those ‘treasures’!
Oh my gosh… I love these photos! You have such an amazing eye for a good shot!!! ❤ it…
License plates, that’s my collectible. 🙂
Laurie, I love to spend time in ‘junk’ stores. It’s the perfect opportunity to score a treasure without busting the pocketbook. Sorry to hear that those boots were too small for ‘Jane’.

Great photos again Laurie. I adore junk shops and cowboy boots, crikey they looked hardly worn at all. Not much boot scootin’ happening there. 🙂
I’m not a boot girl but I’m always on board to investigate a good junk shop. I’m a little worried about coming back to Texas now. Our National News is reporting that some guys are carrying their guns into restaurants…..that’s pretty spooky. There was just a horrible gun shooting in New Brunswick (East coast of Canada). Three RCMP officers were shot dead. Shocking for everyone. Would I be brave enough to walk in that ally. Probably not.
Yes, you do have to be careful where ever you go nowadays. But most of Texas the people are just wonderful.
I would love to go to this place. Used boots would be great, you don’t have to break them in!

Hi my sweet friend! That looks like a fun shop to spend hours looking for fun goodies! I wished I could go in there! Hugz Lisa and Bear
He must find his foot boot.I love the car license plates.The entrance to the shop is unprepossessing but inside they are full of surprises.These boots are made for walking or working. 😉
Unlike most shoes, cowboy boots seem to get better with age. This shop is a place that would draw me in like a magnet. Love it! Texas suits you, Laurie…hope you and your family are well!!
I would totally spend an entire day there if I ever get to Texas!!
That is a good idea!!!
Excellent photos! Love the signage, the boots, the coke bottles, and license plates.
Looks like a fun little place to visit
What a fun place!
A treasure trove!
What a great shop!!
What a fun shop.. I definitely would stop in this store if we were ever in the area..
LOVE this sort of junk! 😉
I’d stroll there. We just did a beach weekend and they had a menagerie of things for sale on the sidewalks (I guess they do it every weekend in warm weather). I found so many old things, some I knew and many I didn’t. It’s cool to look at other people’s ‘not junk to me’ stuff. 🙂
What a cool looking place to go!!
Oh my what a find. I would love this place.
Why not shop there? People change styles and sizes and repurposing is good for the wallet and the earth. 🙂
What a cool looking place!
OMGoodness…that is my kind of place! So, so fun.
Dina…it was something else♥
I would love to take a stroll there. It is absolutely my type of place!
Really? I wish you could of been with me!
What a fun place to visit, Laurie. I once had a pair of white ones like those on the third shelf down. I picked them up second hand in Johannesburg. They weren’t terribly comfortable though. 😦
You made me laugh…yes…not all cowboy boots are comfortable that is for sure.
love the boots image
What a neat place, Laurie!
Lots of goodies, and lots of photo ops.
You cannot possibly go wrong here. 🙂
Happy day to you!
I would love to come across a place like this…hours of fun!
You would have trouble keeping me out of a place like that…
What a fun place to go and explore!!
I like the storefront as street art. Well captured. It must have been so much fun.
What a great place. I’d love to go and photograph there.
I LOVE places like this! And I don’t even wear cowboy boots — or not very often, at least. Great photos! Love the one of the boots best. Thanks for sharing this spot with me!
Ahhh, this store looks AMAZING!
These kinds of places are always so much fun … so full of surprises!
What a fun outing! You guys are really getting into the true spirit of the Lone Star State!
